I Like Thursday #207

 Welcome to my 207th post for I Like Thursday.  What is I Like Thursday?  Well each week a group of bloggers post things they did, found, saw that they like/love during the week.  A gigantic thanks and hug to LeeAnna of Not Afraid of Color for encouraging, and facilitating us each week.

Three day holiday weeks are always super busy, and even busier if you would retail.  So....that being said.

I like that I was caught up until Wednesday with the Moda Blockheads 4 sew along.

Want to know what is great about sharing quilts, blocks?  When you realize you have a piece turned wonky.  Guess I should fix that huh?

 I did fix the last 4.5 inch bonus block zipper so it is the right size.  Then they threw bonus block 5 at me!  What the heck?

My azalea is blooming.  I just love the white flowers with the yellow centers!

I worked Memorial Day, and didn't get a whole lot of sleep since Tuesday would be my day off for the week.  In fact all the adults in the family worked on Memorial Day.  I did spend some time with the boys.  I was challenged to a game of basketball by the middle boy and was surprised when the oldest boy and the youngest boy decided to join in.  We played a rousing game of HORSE.  

Unfortunately I lost, both games, but we had a good time, laughing, and joking, and got some exercise in.  Do you know how many steps you get in chasing a basketball? 

I have been finishing up book series.  Am I the only one that when you read the last book, you are a wee bit sad, and can't wait until the next one comes out?  Don't laugh, I have reminders set when the next Elly Griffiths book with Ruth Galloway, or CS Harris with Sebastian St. Cyr and his wife Hero.  Sometimes I go back and reread a book in a series if it has been a while.  

I reread the Carole Lawrence series  with Ian Hamilton.

I have read all the current book by Victoria Thompson in the Gaslight Series. Murder on Wall Street was the 24th installment.  I like how the story has progressed.  Midwife Sarah Brandt from a prominent New York Family investigates murders all over New York.  The books are named after the different neighborhoods, and is set in 1890's New York.  The police are corrupt, and don't investigate murders without a "reward".  When Sarah meets Detective Frank Malloy, and Irish cop, sparks fly.  By book 24, they have combined their households and had many adventures. 

The next series I read was the Jessica Blackwood books by Andrew Mayne.  Beautiful FBI Agent Jessica Blackwood from a famous family of magicians is

I had to read these books because I wanted to read the next book in the Dr. Theo Cray series called Mastermind.  In the book Jessica is tasked with hunting down Serial killer hunter Dr. Theo Cray.

Thanks for stopping by, head over to LeeAnna's to check out the other I Like Thursday bloggers.


  1. I can't tell you how many times I've completely missed a mistake in a block until I took a photo of it, and then put it in a blog post! And yes, I am always sad when I've read the last book in a series, too. I'm so happy I found that Ruth Galloway series because I'm all caught up on several others that I really like. A game of horse sounds like lots of fun!

  2. Hi Colette! I have never seen a while azalea blooming before - only various shades of pink. How gorgeous is that?!! I definitely get sad when I reach the end of a book series. In fact, I've postponed reading the last book for Miss Fortune for that very reason. Thankfully, there are other new series to find and read to ease the pain a bit! Happy Thursday to you, my friend. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Love those little blocks. I'm never good at HORSE, but always enjoy it. Pretty azalea.

  4. I always like to see what's going on with your Moda blocks. Love them! I've made mistakes too and wonder how I never see them. Lots of great books!

  5. Your moda blocks are coming along. I love your azalea. So pretty. Good for you getting in some basketball steps

  6. Your quilt blocks are lovely and is your azalea!
