November block for Laura

Laura asked us for the Ripple block in pinks/purples and reds and pulling fabric for this was a lot of fun.
 The instructions gave a very generous allowance for trimming which I thought was too much when I last made these blocks so I used 3" squares to start with and got this lovely pile of trimmings when squaring up the half square triangles.
 I tried not to put two colours the same together but somehow managed to do just that when piecing!
 Laura asked us what our retirement plans are.  Honestly I have no clue but living near the atlantic coast and having a few basset hounds around that G and I can walk on the beach with seems pretty good to me!
