one of the tenants in our building is a complete moron. he comes in at 3 am or so and parks right in front of my bedroom window. he activates his car alarm and it makes the headlights flash and the horn beep twice; this he does at least twice. it always wakes me up. he only does it mornings on days i have to work, never on days i have off. today i have left a nasty note taped to his window with lots of tape. i also called the complex office and complained. his car has new jersey plates. i wish he would go back there ASAP. unfortunately it doesn't help me for today. i hate his guts. i'd like to spray super glue on his windshield. i'd like to bang on his door and wake HIM up. i'd like to slash his tires and break his windows. i'd like to trip him when he's coming down the stairs (i think he lives on the 2nd floor but i'm not sure). i hate him. i despise him. i loathe him. he is a vile human being. he is a lousy, senseless, self-absorbed idiot whose mother never taught him anything about courtesy.

today it's back to "just takes 2" and the somewhat large, 15.5" feathered star block. riding high on my recent success with the wallhanging, i am going to forge ahead and tackle this smaller version. i've chosen a dark brown with the muslin to give the section some balance. more blocks get posted today and i can't even entertain the illusion of being anywhere caught up with this project. i am seriously persevering on busting stash and i am getting things done, albeit in a rather lombard-street manner. as i've said before, by working on several things at once, i tend to have a flurry of finishes at once also. off to get dressed for the day and comingle with the old viking. how good is that?

bonnie is this little bag of batik scraps, well the little pieces anyway. couldn't decide how to use them but it would definitely be scrappy. then i printed off this little paper pieced block pattern, 25 of 'em, and put it aside. curiosity got the best of me one day so decided to make one up just to see. yep, i like it. judging from this one block, doubt that the 25 will use up all these little scraps but no matter, they will make great inchies and 9-patch squares too. and no, it isn't a new project, but my resolve is weakening after receiving a swap package of 80 shirting squares in the mail the other day. can i resist and for how long?
