We're Cooking With Gas

One of my co-workers many years ago would use that phrase when we were making progress on a project.  She'd say, "Now we're cooking with gas."  I thought of her so many times while I was sewing these blocks together.



Wonder if she had a phrase that meant we still have lots of work to do? 


For a great tutorial on how to make these spider web blocks, skedaddle on over to
Heather's blog at House of A La Mode

Cheers!
