UFO Sunday

Well, I am not feeling quite in the mood to work on a project at the moment and I slightly discussed that in my earlier post.  But I will share some update of the Jelly roll project that I have going on. If I can get my pictures off my phone! Silly technology!
I realized that I would not have enough of the beige fabrics to do more than one block with is as a background, but I had barely enough to do it with it as the triangles (as you could see by the bottom left block.)
I miss cut a strip of fabric because I was distracted by little man and that made me slightly upset and I ended up ordering another roll off etsy. It was one of two that was online. So I am glad that I got it, because I have it and can make the blanket a bit bigger, but mad that I spent the money because I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing. Grr...
Aside from that, I started looking into TeamInTraining again. I did so a little last year because I wanted to get out and start exercising. That was before I started working at my part time job. Now I am doing it again because of that post from earlier.  I am by no means in any type of physical fitness to be able to run a half marathon, but being able to do so and raise money for a good cause like fighting cancer and raising money for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, anyone could do it... I just am not an extremely active person and don't think I could. But a 5k maybe... It is expensive to join the Team in Training and I don't know if anyone would even sponsor/donate. It was something I looked into a year ago, and now that things are a little different perhaps it wont seem as bad given the circumstances.
Until next time, I hope you enjoy your Veteran's Day...
