I spent a lot of time today trying to get my computer to boot up. This has been an on and off problem since I bought it last fall, starting when it was a month from the purchase date. I fiddled around with it before we went to church and again when we came back. It is up and running again but I never feel confident when I shut it down that it will start again. I have everything I care about backed up just in case.
So.. I only finished 4 blocks again today even though I had a head start by adding the first set of 2 1/2 inch logs to all the starters. I did add 3 1/2 inch logs to 4 more but then we went to the computer store and then out to Chagrin Falls for one of "Dave's Atomic Subs" which we ate outside sitting in the park by the Chagrin Falls. It was nice and breezy and it was good to get out for a while. When we came back home I finished a book I was reading and then finished just the 4 blocks. I will have a head start again tomorrow.
After I made the first few blocks I decided that the ones I like the best a the ones that are pretty much in one color family or at least every dark log having some relationship to the other dark logs. Most of these strips are from the color wash scraps and so there are a lot of multicolor fabrics.
