Before I fish or cut bait, I just want to let you know everyone is doing better. Ozzie is almost himself again, Eva's wrist is pretty good, and my dad continues to think his eye is getting back to normal. Thanks for all your kind wishes!
So, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed. I have at least six, no seven, projects that have all the blocks made, but need to be sewn together. This is not a time to stop and start a new project, right?
You all know how much I love this latest fabric collection I have been working with, Rachel Remembered by Betsy Chutchian. I made the Windmills blocks you see on the right and they are ready to be sewn into rows. Then I wanted to do something with all my leftovers, and assembled the units for the table runner on the left. Then this happened:
See the little quilt at the lower right? I decided it would be a really good idea to make that with the rest of the leftovers. I have seven of the nine stars made, and will put this cute little thing together soon.
My plan for the rest of the week and the weekend is to 1) sew the blocks together for Windmills, 2) sew the leftover Windmills hour glass blocks together for the table topper, 3) put together the little patriotic table topper. Then, it is definitely time to assemble the blocks for my blue and brown Nine Patch quilt, finish up my red and brown S'Mores top, and heaven help me, sew my Moda BlockHeads blocks together.
No more new projects. Time to finish up what I have in progress. So that's my plan and I am sticking to it.
