No rain, just gray - Building Blocks Tuesday

I was hoping that the weather would clear up this morning so I could get some better pictures of the two blocks I have to share this week, but alas, the cloud cover remains.  No rain, mind you, just overcast and gray.

I've completed two more Swoon blocks and here they are...


Swoon block 7

That brings my total up to eight, but I need several more to complete my quilt top.

In other news, I am headed out on a little Mom-cation trip later this week.  I am not planning on bringing any projects with me (it's just not that kind of trip).  Instead, I bought two books to read!  I know that doesn't sound that exciting, but since having kids, I rarely find time to read more than a magazine article.  Well, I take that back.  I have read numerous Barbie stories, all the Nancy Clancy and Amelia Bedelia books that have been released, and have also finished How to Tame Your Dragon, Book 1 recently.  But that doesn't really count as grown up reading, does it?  No, the books I am packing are more mature than the bedtime stories I read to my kids.  I MIGHT even feel like a grown up on this trip, but I'm not promising to act like one!

What have you been working on this week?  I would love to see.  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open for a whole week.

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading!
