Catching Up {with life}

Now that Market is over,
I am excited to get to some long overdue items on my "to-do list". 

First, a bathroom make-over. 
I recently bought a few items from Ballard Designs (love that store!)
like this (in black) and this (in natural).
"Before" and "Afters" coming soon.

Second, I think it's high time I read a book
I can't remember the last time I did that. 
Maybe I'll try my husbands favorite, Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett.

Third, my fridge is long overdue for a good cleaning.

Fourth, I desperately need to make a trip to the D.I..  Children's clothes from the last 8 years are taking over the floor in one of our guest rooms in the basement.  We want to turn that room into my husbands home office.

And finally, I really need to tackle this pile of unfinished projects: 

I've decided to start with this project, but I really need your opinion!  This Schnibbles pattern is called Hot Cross Buns by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. 

So my question is, do you like "Version A" (which is how it was intended)?

Or, do you like "Version B"?

(And, if you say you like the latter, you will save me a lot of time and I will love you for that, but if you say you like the first, then I will have to get busy and you may not hear from me for a while.  So.  Tell me your honest opinion and then I will do what I want with it.:)

And just to make it fun, I will pick a name after you give your two cents in the comment section below and one awesome person will win a pack of my 3 new patterns (Every Which Way, Simply Sweet and Fresh Squeezed).  See, this is tricky ~ unless you have actually read this long, long post of mine, then you wouldn't know that there was a giveaway at the end of it.  So your chances may be good at winning.  Be sure to tell me "Version A" or "Version B" and what your reasoning is for liking what you like.  This giveaway will end on Friday. 

Thanks, Amber
