Samoan Stars

I haven't found my MoJo yet but I think I am getting closer. I've just been feeling a bit off lately.  Nothing serious just not feeling motivated. I have been doing a bit of sewing each day though. I think part of my problem is spending too much time on the laptop. I spend way too much time reading blogs. I use Bloglines and it tells you how many blogs you are reading...449!! Way too many to keep up on. I have been going through and deleting blogs. I found some that people haven't posted on their blogs since 2008, others since February 2010, and any time in between. Those are now gone. The rest were harder to decide whether to keep or not. I have several favorite blogs that I would never think about getting rid of. The ones I know I comment on each time they post were kept. I managed to whittle my list down to 168. I still have a bunch to go through and decide whether to keep up with them or not. I'm hoping to get my list down to 100 or less. We'll see how well that goes lol.


I'm still working on my Samoan Stars during break times at work. I bought some orange fabric yesterday and decided to put some on the design wall under the stars to see how they look. This piece is a one yard piece. As an estimate I can figure that if I do a total of 9 of these 1 yard "blocks" than I will have enough for a king size quilt. So if I make a total of  450 stars (plus the connecting diamonds) I should be OK. Yea, that's alot lol. I'm still thinking that the yellow will be the right color for the connecting diamonds. Next time I might try them out on grey though just in case they look good on grey.

The stars are lovely, and I can't wait to see the quilt.
I've done the same with the blogs I follow. My list was getting so long! Now I'm trying to keep it between 100 and 110.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Oh my--you are certainly a "colorful" person!!!!
Hummm--I don't know how many blogs I have---I do know I read alot--but mostly just the ones I have listed on the three sites--and every so often I do go through them and see where their interests and mine are---to decide whether to keep them on or not?????
And I would never delete those of my bloggers that are "colorful"!!!!

Hugs, Di
