Design Wall Monday - 1/6/14

Hah - I almost put 2013 in the title!!

I meant to get a better picture of the 14 finished blocks this morning but we had an early rescue call and it slipped my mind in my rush to still get to work on time. Normally I don't go on calls after 6 or 6:30 in the morning but since the new ER opened today at 7am we had a chance of being the first patient and/or ambulance. They had moved a patient over from the old ER but we were still #1 ambulance. LOL! I know it sounds trivial but we have already answered 13 calls this year (12 or 13 more than usual!) so it was a good moment for our tired little crew. See, #13 can be lucky!!

Anyway - this is a representation of the 54-40 blocks that I have finished so far. I've got some other quilting "work" to do for the LQS so I'm not sure how soon I'll get back to them. It feels good to be making progress and they went together sew easy!

For anyone who is stopping in today from either the Design Wall or Celtic Solstice linky parties, you may have missed my post last week on my 2014 reading challenge. I'll be hosting a monthly linky party regarding reading this year. I'll be posting progress on my personal challenges but I will encourage all y'all to post what you have been reading as well. It could be from a challenge or any random book on your night stand - even a new quilt book or magazine. I know I'm always looking for new books or authors and especially with the challenge I am working on I'll need lots of suggestions! I hope you'll stop in tomorrow for the first link up...

Is that a lucky clover I see in that block?

Looks great, Sarah. So hard to NOT be doing the mystery quilt. : )
My goodness, you have been flooded with emergencies. Are they weather related?

I can't believe you've had so many calls in the first 6 days of January --are they weather related? Crazy! Your CS is looking good! And I'm up for a challenge of sorts, reading wise, anyway. I just got a shipment of a title from Moody Press to read and blog about, with about FOUR copies for giveaways! Five, if you include the hard copy I'll read. Plus I just downloaded a book from the library -- the one Angela recommended on her tea blog. I will have something to link up! Are you still doing FF and HeLP linky parties this year??! :)

this is a real beauty so colourful. You have certainly been busy with all the call outs, hope it quietens down so you can get more quilting done

It looks good! I had to write the date for the first time this year today, and I kept putting 13 as well. Made someone's invoice very overdue when I said the due date was the end of last January!
