I am definitely suffering from Quilting attention deficit disorder this week, which is being exaggerated by severe procrastination. I am supposed to be working on my This way, That way quilt. Instead, I have cleaned my sewing room, and worked on everything but the quilt I am supposed to be focussing on.
The only good thing is I got this weeks Tula Pink City Sampler blocks complete, which I have never done in time. In fact I have blocks 1-9 and now 64-66 :-). I am still loving the fabric choice – Spring House. Here are the new blocks:
Here are the close-ups of the blocks.
Here is a link of the previous 9 blocks I have made.
I will say the week has not all been frustrating. I got home Friday night, and I had a package. My first reaction was what did I buy, have I forgotten something?? No, Laura, a wonderful friend I met in blog world, sent me an amazing woolly hat. It was perfect, as it is getting cold here in North Carolina and we had our first frost this week. I was so elated and so taken aback. So here is a shout out to Laura over @ Little and Lots, go over and take a look at her other hats – she has been knitting up a storm.
Hope you all are having a great weekend. I am counting down….Only 2 weeks until the Triangle MQG sewing retreat, 4 1/2 weeks to Thanksgiving, and 8 1/2 weeks to Christmas!!!
I definitely love being on vacation, and to share there is one more vacation post coming tomorrow. As far as my sewing efforts, I did not get 4 hours a day but did at least two which is great if you ask me. I also did not get everything done that I wanted (I was a little too optimistic), but I did make a good dent in my list. I managed to complete or start:
Finally, I finished Blocks 1, 2, 3 of Tula City Sampler and in 1/2 day managed 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 (3 weeks down, only 6 more to catch-up on). Here are what the last 6 blocks look like….remember I a using Spring House by Moda for the fabric.
Summary of my 9 blocks
