Black, White, and Red

Here is the start to my snail trail. I need to go around each block about 2 more times. I wanted to see what they looked like on my design wall at this point. They make a pretty cool design already but I will keep going. Besides cutting a few strips today taking the picture is all I did.
I made the mistake of going to Batiks Galore. It takes very little effort to shop online even with a sinus infection. I did not even have to get out of my chair. I am collecting creams and black and whites. There selection is good and of course I found what I was looking for.
I needed some flip flops so I looked for those too. I love Sperry shoes and Yellow Box shoes. After living in Fla. for 17 years I am a flip flop junkie. Your wardrobe really goes casual living there. I wish I could wear them as often in tennessee but no. I need to live in 2 places. I enjoy the winter but then I want to be warm. Fla. is too warm or should I say humid. Maybe the Carribean Islands?
I thought of my friend Tiki today. That is her real name. I heard our song on the radio while I was running errands. We used to cruise around in her car our senior year listening to this. We thought we were so cool and we did exactly what the song said. We put our fake Ray Bans on and wore them at night. I am surprised we did not get in a wreck.
Song of the day: "Sunglasses At Night" by Corey Hart

OMG... that is so funny. I used to work in this bar and one of the guys that came in used to do that. He even told me that he was doing it, and that it was his fav song. EEEK He was like 20 years older than me. Great song but it still kinda creeps me out. I am so bad at online shopping too, but for yarn. My hubby's grandma does alot of quilted baby blankets. I am going to have her show me a few things this summer to get me started. YAY

The fabrics you have chosen really give this a lot of movement. I like the design these unfinished blocks make. Maybe you should do a little one like this to piece into the back.

I probably will do a quilt with these blocks if I have enough fabric left over. I hope the snail trail has the same kind of movement.
