I decided to go ahead and do tulip blocks for the sew-in swap.

I got all the pieces cut tonight, and tomorrow I can begin to sew! There will be 3 colors of tulips, red, yellow and purple. All of it is from my stash except the light blue. I bought that in November (see? I was trying not to procrastinate!) and I used birthday money and a 50% off coupon to buy that fabric.

Tomorrow I have an eye exam to get a stronger contact prescription. I started to notice that my eyesight was failing in January and spend several weeks hoping that they would improve... yeah right! :P Then last week I realized that I'd have a very lousy day at the Opening Day of the Diamond Backs baseball game if I wasn't going to be able to see anything clearly. That got my rear going and getting an appointment. :)

I'd not see the tulip blocks before - they are great. Love your colour choices in the pieces in waiting :)

Oh, these are going to be good. Nice color choices!!! Can't wait to see them finished.

Put the pedal to the metal!

Wonderful fabric choices for tulips. Wish I was in your swap so I'd get one. :-) Oh, but then I'd have to make blocks too wouldn't I? Never mind.......

Beautiful fabrics!

I didn't know you are a baseball fan. I'm a Red Sox and Twins fan myself.
