Really, it was only 15 minutes!

Actually that was all I had.  (but could have had more had I realized Frank was going to finish watching the Towering Inferno for the eleventy millionth time)

I have been thinking about the Kitchen Sink Quilt for a long time.  And I am looking for some blocks I "put somewhere for safekeeping" until I had time to work on them.  I won this odd little raffle of Outhouse blocks about 2 or 3 years ago and didn't quite know what to do with them.  Well now they are on the UFO list and their number was pulled, I can't find the darn things.

Every day when I have a few minutes to spare, I look in a deeper place, searching fruitlessly.

But yesterday I came across a basket FULL of orphan blocks.  This, mind you, is in addition to the basket FULL of orphan blocks I KNOW I have.  Geez.  How did I get this many orphan blocks?  I have no idea, but I remember all of them so they aren't made by gnomes in the nighttime.

So I spent my 15 minutes pinning the random new orphan blocks to the design wall.  I thought, this will make the Design Wall Monday people go bonkers!  These are the old blocks, the new haven't been mixed in there yet. 

I guess this is the "perfect time" to put them together in a Junk quilt.  LOL.  As in "Don't touch my junk!" 

Perfect........keep your hands off my stuff, it is MY stuff and I am keeping it ALL!

(Darn, I can't post photos until I upgrade my account with Google for more gb storage.......anyone else have this problem?  I guess they have my five bucks with this new development.)

glen:  don't tell my daughter, she gets soooo outdone with me for keeping all this stuff.........
