There's this quilt along that's going on out there in the world wide web.  The scrappy trip-around-the-world. I've been seeing these blocks everywhere - just do a google, and you'll find them. Or you can see them in this link.

And so bit by bit, little by little, I'm getting THIRSTY.

I'm so excited! More updates soon.
