That's me - lol ! Nothing causing it just feeling a bit bleugh ! Had a few nasty headaches this week too. Feeling a bit unmotivated in the quilting department. Not like me at all. Dug out some more scrappy strips, ironed them and piled them into a basket and there they've stayed. Needs a bit of a sort-out.
Lots of ideas floating about in my head but am still trying to get things finished. However I did come across this pile of blocks leftover from another quilt from a few months ago.
I decided to get shut of them and picked a couple of pretty fabrics to make some hourglass blocks to go with. I bought the companion angle ruler to use in my Carolina Crossroads quilt ( which is slowly getting worked on ) and I used this to cut my blocks - easy as pie.
Here's where I'm up to. Have a border fabric picked and will get that cut out later on after our evening meal ( which is beef stew and dumplings simmering away in my slow cooker as we speak ).
As a lot of you will know Bonnie is starting another mystery quilt on April 1st. She is calling this one Orange Crush. I was NOT going to do this but I have made a boo-boo ! I am subscribed to the yahoogroup discussing this and have been receiving the emails from the ladies who are going to do this mystery. And I have been caught up in the excitement of choosings colours etc so now I AM going to do this one too - lol !! I have been going through my stash trying to choose fabrics and have come up with these.
I don't have a lot of darks in my stash and not a lot of yardage seeing as the majority of my quilts are scrappy but I think these will work. As well as these main 4 dark colours we also need 3 yards of lights and darks so I plan to introduce a lot more colours - purples, blues etc. Lord knows what it will come out like but I suppose that is half the fun of a mystery :-)
In the evenings I have been doing some hand-quilting on a UFO. Hopefully I will have another finished quilt to show before too long but as you all know - hand-quilting is like a man - can't be rushed. Or is that just MY husband lol ?
Take care and thanks for coming to see what I'm up to - I love seeing my stat counter go up and am constantly amazed that people seem to be interested in me and what I'm doing.
