I've been putting all those little pieces of fabric together and watching the sub-units of the quilt blocks begin to form. I can't wait to see how they will all look when I am finished. I think I mentioned before, I have slightly altered a block pattern I found to create these blocks. I have not sketched out what the final block will look like. I have my fingers crossed it will look okay when it's finished.

Below is a quick update on my Mickey and Pirate Friends monster-sized cross stitch. The side of Goofy's head is beginning to appear. Yay!
|Mickey and Pirate Friends Cross Stitch - 07/23/2017|
As I talked about earlier, I have had a bit of a sweet tooth...probably for the past 48 years or so. But the sweets cravings have been especially bad lately.
Last night Mr. Goofin' Off went out with the "kids" to celebrate my nephew's last Saturday as a bachelor. They hit up Red Robin and the Spider Man movie. He bought me these little babies so I wouldn't feel left out. Mr. Goofin' Off is really thoughtful that way.
|My Current Sweet Tooth Downfall - Lava Cakes|
These lava cakes are rich. I love how they just melt in my mouth with all of their chocolaty gooey-ness. Fortunately, there are only two in a box, so once they are gone, they are gone. I lost a couple of pounds the past few weeks, so I don't want to undo what I've accomplished. These were not my only sweet tooth purchase this week...just the only edible one...that I am admitting to.
I saw a blog post earlier this week from a fellow blogger who had recently purchased a British cross stitch magazine with some adorable sweet treat patterns in it. I hurried over to JoAnn's to see if they had the issue, so I could add it to my stash. The gal was putting out new issues of magazines when I came in. She asked what I was looking for, so I told her. She said she had a few issues but hadn't put them out yet.
She grabbed the latest issue of Cross Stitch Crazy and handed it to me. I gladly took the magazine from her hand, glanced at the cover, and finished my shopping at JoAnn's. When I got home and took the magazine out, I realized it wasn't the one I had wanted. But it did have the patterns for these little sweeties.
I think they will make adorable little quilt block centers all stitched up. Oh, the ideas are flowing. If only I had the time to do all the projects I have in my head.
Why do I feel like I need to go run five miles just for looking at these sweeties? (Or maybe it's because I had a lava cake last night.)
What is your current craving right now...whether it be food, stash, TV show binge...? I'd love to hear from you.
