Haven't done much sewing which is virtually unheard of for me. I did manage to work on some hand applique.
This has been a LONG and SLOW process for me. I was listening to my audio book in the evening, and I was making good progress. But I think it has been months since I worked on this particular project. I have EIGHT hearts left to stitch down. Yeah!!!!!! Maybe tonight??????
Also working on those last TWO blocks for The Patchwork Sampler, but neither are complete. Maybe tomorrow?????
I am reading a book called The Bone Cage. It is about two aging (they are not even thirty!!!) Olympic athletes. It is a novel about a swimmer and a wrestler and the struggle as they prepare for the Olympics. GOD - I feel like them right now. Between the gym, where Alwin takes no pity UNLESS I am injured (which happened this morning) and this High Altitude Training - my mornings are pretty much wiped out. And I am HUNGRY all the time. I'm going to bloom right up if I don't watch it!!!!
Anyway - hopefully the injury is minimal - a pulled calf muscle????? Happened to be going to the chiro right after and they shot electrodes through it. Oh yeah - I feel like an athlete. A tired, cranky, hungry athlete.
And what about quilting??????? Well I was working on a quilt yesterday - and I have to do some ripping today and try a different approach. I HATE when that happens, but that is how we learn. I HATE learning!!!!!
I have plowed through a LOT of paperwork this past week so that is a good thing. DID NOT find the receipt I was looking for, but managed without it. And so the paperwork crap will sit for another month. No time - too many tops to quilt and too many pieces of fabric sitting here waiting to be sewn together.
For the nature enthusiasts - here are some pictures of SPRING!!!!!!
Too bad they all do not last longer!!!
Oh yes and look at this cool fabric I found the other day.
|Cool bike fabric!!!!|
And I was searching through my beautifully organized stash room for something for an upcoming project. Now that I think of it - I have spent a LOT of time searching for just the right fabrics for a couple of upcoming challenges. You know what that means - YEP - can't share them with you!!!!!! But look at what else I found in the stash room!!! I didn't even know it was missing - we have four of the silly phones and while cordless is good - I never seem to find one when I need it!!!!!
|A missing phone - but I didn't even know it was missing!!!|
Well that is about it for today. Got a lot of work to do.
Have a great day!!
