My Screaming Red, Kind Of Bovine-Looking Block for May BOM....

Good morning! Charlie survived the storms we had last night. He is deathly afraid of thunder and for some unknown reason, feels safest when he is draped over my head. His logic escapes me. Either he is trying to protect me or he thinks he'll blend in when the thunder monster comes after him. I need a class in shih tzu logic 101.

Because of the storm, I felt justified in turning off the computer and stitching up the 6-inch block for the Country Threads BOM. In keeping with the red, white and black color scheme for this quilt, I made a screaming red block.
As you can see, the white with black dot fabric gives the block a bovine quality--not exactly what I was going for but....oh well, it's just a 6-inch block. I can't wait to see how all these blocks will look together.

Today I'm writing for our new client again and also writing for another client about designer jeans...boyfriend jeans, skinny jeans, ultra-skinny jeans, "can't breathe but look great" jeans and my favorite, "can only be worn by an anorexic model" jeans. Do you believe they actually have a "minus five" size jeans?  I'll go off to work now thanking God Above that I am not young during this era of "skinny worship"!. Have a great day!

Loving the RED!! I can't imagine having to write about those skinny jeans - especially in a -5 size???

LOL I did not think of cows! I love the dots. :-) But is minus 5 a true size, or something invented to make someone feel skinny? I wonder what size it really equals out to be. Have a happy day!

You turned off the computer but used your machine? Or was this hand sewn? Cute Block, I like the zig zag background too.
