Wow, it has been all week

Well, it has been almost a week since I posted and life is not any calmer. I've been sewing a little, but not much. It was a week of trying to get Sears to deliver a washer that would work. What a frustrating week. I've never has so much trouble with idiots. I'm tempted to have them remove these and give me my money back. I probably won't buy from Sears anymore!

Taking DD to school on Monday my van wouldn't go. Thank goodness it stopped in the parking lot. Of course, there are some rude parents that wouldn't even help me, and only wanted to honk. Thankfully one Dad helped push the van into a slot and I was out of the driving path. Got the car out later that evening, but it was not cheap.
I did get a couple of blocks together for Night Sky. This one is almost as much work as the purple

quilt was. One of 4 blocks ready to be sewn. I have this plus 2 more of this one and then 3 more of the one below it. This is the layout as I'm putting blocks together. I need 3 more sets of those on the left. Lots and lots of hst and lots of turning to get them in the right order. Mind boggling right now with all the other frustration in my life. Plus, I am not going to have enough background to finish the quilt, so I had to design another way of coloring the center of the star. I think it is going to have a dark star in the middle and maybe a yellow in the center. I'm not 100% sure on that color yet. Thank goodness for EQ.

I think you need an easier project to work on while life is so stressful! These blocks are really labour intensive and complex! But it sure will be beautiful!
