These are the last of my purple blocks--



Please see everyone's purple posts at SoScrappy.
 
Remember the 83 Broken Dishes 30's blocks I found?  Not liking my *old* plans I searched the internet for ideas.  I found this--

I found it on this blog--

Thank you Sharon!  Don't you love how the blocks look like trailing ribbons or vines?  The best part is I can use the white alternating blocks already sewn to some of the blocks as the vertical sashings!  A WIN-WIN!! 

And my Mojo is back!  Yes, Liz in Houston had a heart-to-heart talk with him.  Told him how I missed him and needed him.  Said I had bought new modern fabrics for him to play with.  Told him the weather is beautiful in South Dakota now.  (She also promised that I would make him chocolate chip cookies!)  He immediately got on the bus and he's already pulling out fabrics and planning new starts.  Stephanie in Australia has lots of visiting Mojos and sent me one she thought was mine.  I mean, its hard to tell--since he's a twin to the one I usually work with!  So now I have TWO Mojos!  I could hear them chatting away over coffee and cookies and comparing their winter escapades.  Mojo#2 came by rocket ship, he beat Mojo#1 to my house!

Stephanie had lots of Mojos visiting and sent most of them home.  She wasn't sure whose they were, so if you're missing your Mojo--watch for him!

Ooooh, I've got to remember the Broken Dishes setting you found. I love it.

Loved your post today and it made me chuckle. Double mojo might be dangerous though!

And what a clever layout for those Broken Dishes blocks. Can't wait to see how yours turns out.
