Brrrrrr It's a Cold Saturday

It's Saturday and it is bone chilling cold outside, ask me how I really know that?  A friend of mine is away and while away I am responsible for her beloved 4 legged friends.  As I did yesterday, I managed to get myself out of bed and my head felt like it was about to explode... I normally get nasty headaches when the pressure is up and sure enough it had snowed through the overnight hours.
I dress for snow, clean off my car, all the while it hurts while your breathing in that icy cold air and finally off I go over to the house, open the door and whoa, no doggies meeting me, no barks of "thank goodness your here", why, well because their son is home and the two dogs are nicely snuggled up with one of their favorite people and not at all ready for a run in the frosty morning air! 
So "Who Let The Dogs Out"?  No me this morning..
Last night while tidying up my sewing space I came across lots of plaid scraps.  So pulling out the tiny sewing machine I use for Gatherings/Retreats I decide to play instead.  YIPPEE, I managed to do something with my plaids, take a look at this and tell you you have seen this block combination somewhere before, this is what has come of my playing with plaids.
Sew, I ask you, have you seen this lay out before?  I am not sure whether I made it up myself or that I may have seen something exactly like this before and it's a product of a layout hidden in my memory bank?  Anyhow, I like the layout and will use up what scraps I have left and make a nice little quilt.  I spent hours this morning searching for patterns to see if I could find this layout, looked at all of the images through Google images, even Flicker, so far I haven't come across a lay out like this and I would hate to claim it as mine if it is out there somewhere.  Heaven forbid the plagiarism police nab me for my claim... AND I cannot take myself too seriously now can I? 
DON'T FORGET MY GIVEAWAY, spread the word, remember it closes on Valentine's Day with the winner to be announced on Wednesday, February 15th.  Leave your comments at this post!  If the voting is closed, then tell me which quilt you liked best.  I had forgotten that the voting might close (Mis Culpa)!
Are there any Project Runway fans out there?  What did you think of last nights episode?  My favorite "Anthony Williams" was booted off last week, what a shame, he brought such color and interest to the show, (imo).  These very young designers come up styles and pattern combinations which are interesting, but certainly nothing I could see myself wearing given  my body shape, size and age bracket would or could ever wear! ROLOL However, I so enjoy watching this series, don't you?
I wish you all a wonderful Saturday, may it continue just how you planned it to.  
Thank you for stopping in this morning, being Saturday I figure you have tons of things on your to do list so I hope for you it is a productive and fulfilling day.  Hopefully you'll come by for a visit tomorrow.
