This seems to be how my life has been going lately…I start one project and end up doing another! And it doesn’t always involve quilting! Let me give you an example…I’m sweeping the floor and before I know it I am washing windows…Or I am outside watering plants and end up throwing the ball for Rylie…for an HOUR…meanwhile there is a big puddle under the roses! I’m cleaning the fridge and end up making banana bread…WHAT’s going on?
Yesterday I decided to tidy up the sewing room. I had finished this month’s big and little barn blocks for our BOM Sew-Along (reveal is at the end of the month:) and the room is now wall to wall homespun! Looked like we’d had a party, a very good party and this was the aftermath…so I started to fold and sort and before you knew it… I had this all ready to stitch..
I WAS in need of more evening handwork…and isn’t this sweet?! It was a gift from a friend :o) (thank you friend!!) and I LOVE it! So pretty with gorgeous vibrant colours! It felt good putting this together…like drinking cocoa on a cold winter’s night…(The Pattern is called ‘Under the Stars’ by Piece of Work).
AND you know how one thing leads to another…I got out this ‘in progress project’…I had finished embroidering the stems…
…‘Summer Blooms’ by Primitive Gatherings…Ahhhh, yes…I bought the kit from PG… SEW in a trance like state, I prepped all the wool and cut it out…
..and before I knew what hit, I had a block together!…a very pretty block!
…and one block lead to three blocks…
…and three blocks lead to four blocks!
Aren’t they pretty….!! And no that isn’t a question..it’s a simple fact!
Also a fact is that my sewing room is now a combination of bits and pieces wool AND homespun…a complete and utter disaster! Hmmmm….I wonder how many more blocks I can make when I go in there to ‘clean up’? And no that’s not a question…it’s a fact!
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Stitching!~P
