Whew!

Life has not been quilter-friendly for the last couple of weeks.  There have been company and deadlines and commitments to meet.  



So, the blog has been silent and the only progress I can report is that I barely managed to complete five anti-ouch pouches to hand in at Guild meeting Wednesday plus four more rosettes for my Edyta Sitar project.



Our company left Tuesday and arrived safely at home in Wisconsin yesterday.  Here is the lovely flower they gave me. 



It certainly was neither necessary nor expected, but I do love it. 



They also insisted on buying this rock planter when I picked it up at an excursion to the Wildseed Farm in Fredericksburg.  I’m into succulents this year and had been wanting one of these planters for a long time.  There was a lot of good natured teasing about me wanting a rock with a hole in it.


I’m looking forward to some time at the sewing machine this coming week.  Some mindless stitching is in order!

This, That and the Other...



This month’s anti-ouch pouches are calling my name.  I am working on a group project with a deadline next week.  There’s always the ongoing quilting that’s been inching along.  But all I wanted to work on today while sewing with friends was my scrappy bow tie project, so that’s what I did.  I have 10 blocks completed and made progress on an eleventh today. 



Every time I look at the blocks on my design wall, they make me happy because of all the bright cheerful colors.  I guess the other projects will still be there tomorrow…



This little guy was checking me out after a recent shower.  He’s too pretty to be creepy.


I’m linking to the Scraptastic Tuesday linky party.
