Variations on a theme in the site above. Looks like fun to do.

is where I found this pattern. So if you are interested look there.
Nice colour relationship, black, red and white. This seems to be the "in" colour scheme. I have seen this scheme on several occasions.

I had some difficulties with getting onto my yahoo, google , blog and facebook today. I could not bring them up. Apparently there were problems. So I got a late start on my blog and did not finish yesterday's blog.

Last night Kathy and I went to Tom's for Cake . As we sat down cake and coffee was delivered to our place. The cake was delicious, but I do not know what it was called. Then Tom took over and demonstrated how to make the latest quilt that he had on the design wall. He gave out post cards with the pattern on the back and as Kathy and I did not get the one for last month he gave us that one too. It was a holder for postcards. I think I will make that one. It looks easy enough. There were other things happening but I forget them. Bad news.  So Cake Therapy was a great evening. I want to go again.
And I bought a yard of red striped fabric.
It is really a lot redder.

As for today Ray and I went to Costco. Now it was a big trip $250 this time, the first time we ever spent that much. I did buy some great books and that bumped up the total. I'll take a photo later and put it up.  We always go there for our paper goods, Kleenex paper towels and tissue paper. We rarely buy meat but did today, a basket of cooked chicken legs and thighs which were attached to the drumstick. This time we bought some canned goods and chocolates.

We also ate lunch, delicious hot dogs and a cold drink.

We came home and rested. That is a big walk around  the Costco store. Ray gets the worst of it as he had to deal with all the stuff we bought. But we had a good time.

We watched a show on the 10th Earl of Shaftesbury who was murdered by his third wife and her brother. It was most interesting. His body was thrown out of a car and down a ravine and was not discovered for a long time. You can look the story up by using the title of the Earl. 

Does this amuse you as much as it does me?

This is a beautiful  young woman and her bright clothing just enhances her looks. Is that her sleeve on her head?

And here is a neat mug rug of
Snow balls and a snowman. So cute!

This one is an attractive version of Cathedral Windows and in a very different colour scheme.

I have lost the pictures that I downloaded. It takes so long to find things on this computer.
They came up. 

Download now as a pdf pattern
Around the Block is the the name of the pattern.

But folks it is time to go.
Have a great evening.

Good night.
