Have you ever noticed 
that occasionally the same number just keeps reoccurring
in your daily life?

This past week it seems my
persistent number has been ...

If I think of the number 31,
I think of this.

Do you remember the first time
you went to a Baskin Robbins and
had 31 different choices of ice cream?

Well, this week the number 31
has mysteriously appeared in every one 
of my current quilt projects.

Kind of weird, huh.

It started with discovering I have 31
more stars to stitch.
That will take me to 120 and to my goal.

#17 on my "17 in 2017" list

Then I counted and found out I
needed to make 31 more sets of 
flying geese for the borders of the
Halo Medallion which I'm also currently working on.

You can tell I'm using the Flying Geese X4 method.

Then the ultimate coincidence,
31 more sets of broken dishes
 from my Leaders 
and Enders project that I've been working
on forever.
Did I say forever!?!

  #13 on the "17 in 2017" list

And could it also be strange that today
is August 31?

Well, what's wonderful is that
there was over 31 followers  who
commented in my giveaway.

Thank you to everyone who took the time
to leave a comment.

Now for the fun part.
 Drum Roll, Please

Thank you, Elvis!

  4. I think you'd better buy a lottery ticket today and include the number 31! I also think it is amazing how much you have accomplished in 2017. Congratulations to the lucky giveaway winners. Oops, gotta go, I think I hear Rod Serling calling!

  5. That is quite the coincidence but a fun one ! :)

    Congrats to your winners.

  9. Lots of cute blocks. 31 doesnt sound like too many to make, until you x by 3!

  10. Kyle haces que en mi cabeza de vueltas el 31,
    ¡¡felicidades a las ganadoras!!

  11. Good luck reducing your 31's to zeros :)
    Congrats to the lucky winners!

  12. Congratulations to all the winners!
    Some things seems ment to be like this week full of 31's. Like your broeken dishes! Have a good weekend!

  13. I think you should buy a lottery ticket, too! Thirty-one blocks is certainly within reach for all your projects. Love your fussy cut stars :) Congrats to the winners!

  14. I am so excited to be one of your winners . . . and want to say thank you so much. That's so strange how that number kept popping up for you. I don't recall never having that happen.

  15. Spooky about all those 31's.
    I see you made your star parts with a template of some sort. For some reason, my seam allowance never seems to fall in the right place using the template sets with the points cut off.

  16. Congratulations to your winners!
    That 31 repitition is kind of spooky in a fun way.

  17. That is pretty strange--too bad September doesn't have 31 days--you may need it to get all those "31's" finished--haha!
