So I've officially been home a week and I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to get back in the proper swing of things. Last night was the first night I made it past 9 pm before falling asleep.
Jetlag has been a real stinker.
But my dear husband has a baby shower at work to attend on Friday and had asked me to make him something to take so today I pulled myself together and got to sewing.
And it felt really nice.
I put together the above quilt top for the little boy baby. Tomorrow I'll quilt it but I just can't decide yet how I want to do it. The usual stippling or straight lines? It certainly lends itself to straight lines but I also just love a nice, crinkly stippled quilt.
hmmm.....what to do.....
The Single Girl.....
This little lady waits patiently for me to finish the last four blocks. I think what's holding me back is the fact that I know I have to cut out the pieces for the wheel part since I started out with the wrong white for the first block I did. (big bummer no?) so I am one short on each piece. The thought of cutting out all those pieces feels a tad daunting. BUT I am quite excited to see her all pieced together. I keep telling myself what a nice Finished It Up Friday that would be to post about but....it just never happens. Maybe this will be the week. My jetlag thinks doubtful.
My hexie quilt continues slowly but surely! I have to report that my hexie holder was a dream on my 13 hours of flying each way and I got some nice little blocks done while whiling away the hours of in seat movie entertainment.
And PS: as to those who were wondering about the little scissors in my hexie holder.
They made it through security NO problem.
And if they can make it through airport security in Seattle, they can make it through anywhere.
They are no joke about airport security in Seattle.
Still at three blocks of these pretties. Looking forward to plugging away on these guys here a little there a little now that I'm back
And then there is this:
My WIP box.
She's awfully full and in need of some attention before I go plunging into any other new projects.
These are my projects that seem to be in holding patterns, waiting for inspiration to strike.
So that's my progress!
