Modern Puzzle

Seems like a fitting title for what the world is experiencing right now…but no, it’s just the name of the pattern I’m playing with. As I was scrolling through the various blogs I read, I came across Mary making this quilt and thought my stack of 5″ squares would be perfect for this. Each block takes four 2.5×4.5 pieces of each contrasting fabric. I thumbed through my stack and found all the matching fabrics and had just enough to make 36 blocks

This will make a 48″ square quilt, good for a baby or small child. I still have a good stack of charms left, most of them are light to medium values.

Not much else has been going on around here…my anxiety seems to be settling down a little which is a good thing, although I’m not sure what I’ve been doing that’s helped…maybe it’s the Headspace meditation I’ve been doing each morning 🙂

My weight has been holding steady even though I’ve not been making the best food choices, I guess that’s a win? I have been trying to eat more fruit – apples, oranges, blueberries, strawberries – but I’ve also been eating Reese’s easter eggs, cookies & cupcakes. I’m definitely a ‘stress eater’ so all this COVID stuff has sent me into an eating tailspin which makes me feel even worse afterward.

On the bright side, the weather here has been so nice – 70’s during the day, 50’s at night. At least we can sit outside and soak up some Vitamin D 🙂 We ‘went out’ for dinner last night – we drove through Wendy’s and then sat in the car to eat it…it was sad but also hilarious!!!

That’s all for now…stay safe & stay sane…and have a great rest of your weekend ❤
