Orca Bay Step 5 Complete

Yeah!  Orca Bay Step 5 is complete for the week.  This step wasn't so bad.  If you noticed in the previous pictures, sometimes I proudly dumped my pile of blocks out for the photo.  I wondered why some people didn't seem to show their blocks and just showed piles of blocks.  Now I know!  Don't do that.  Keep them neatly oranized and stacked all the same way, tightly packed in ziplock baggies!  They are a lot easier to do the next step that way.  So here's this step all counted (350) and piled:
And here's what they look like with their friends from the other steps awaiting Step 6:
And just for fun here's my happy 4 1/2 year old...  He's so happy and excited about Christmas!

Hi Kathy, what fun to see a different colour scheme. Good idea for keeping things together. I really should take a leaf out of your book!

I like the yellow. I separate, too, if it gets mixed up I get a little discombobulated. Cannot wait to see your finished Mystery Quilt.

Are you going to have snow for Christmas?? I lived in Ohio when growing up, Piqua, near Dayton. Snow was always a hit or miss for the Holidays. We live in Texas so it is out of the question here but we are praying for rain, and lots of it.
I love quilting in the rain (just not 'IN' the rain) it just seems so home
