As I was sewing today I thought "oh I must write a blog post tonight and talk about what I worked on this weekend, I got a lot done!". But then I stopped and thought "no you might as well wait so that you can link up with WiP Wednesday, and don't forget you need to post for A lovely Year of Finishes, and you should time the next Library Project post with this project..." it went on and on.
I fear that I may be a slave to linky parties.
Now before you get all excited, I love linky parties. I mean I created one this year with The Library Project QAL
! I am not getting all high and mighty and not joining in. I love linking up with this amazing on-line community. And let's face it, the more you link up, the more those connections happen.
But when did I start feeling like I should only post at specific times, instead of writing when I feel like it? When I have something to share or just talk? I don't like the way this makes me feel. I blog to connect, true, but also because this is my creative journal, I should write when inspiration strikes right?
So, here is what I did this weekend.
First things first, I got back in the saddle with the rotary cutter. I am not going to lie, my index finger was mighty shy at the prospect of dealing with that sharp pizza cutter again. But cutting was a breeze.
Sewing, now that is another story. I must have hit my finger on the sewing machine 10 times yesterday. The darned thing sticks out because I am trying to protect it, but that also means it jabs right into the machine. Oh well, quilting is pain right? No that's not right. Beauty is pain? Whatever, moving on.
I kept working on Summer Tracks / The Slasher quilt top at the MMQG
Sew In. I have all of the rows together now so the complete top is soon to follow.
I also got caught up on my Bee Blocks. Some Domino blocks for Global Scrap Bee
And a Bottled Rainbow Block for ModQImprovB Canada. This was only the second time that I have attempted machine applique, and I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I mean not perfect, but pretty good!
Today I finished Melanie's second Postage Stamps Quilt!!!! So excited about this. I finished after dark so no pictures today, and really a finished quilt deserves it's own post doesn't it?! Just as fun though, here is a pic of my helper today. I could not get Penny away from the last day of Olympic coverage, and when I am quilting a big quilt she likes to get under it on the table.
So, that's me. Posting on Sunday night, before the crazy that is my workweek begins. And I am not linking up anywhere!
Oh, and if I haven't said so lately - thanks for dropping by :)
