Yes it's me again...with my old dilemma...too many topics in one post to come up with one catchy title..so we'll just go with this one.
First, Happy National Quilting Day to all of us! I just think it's pretty exciting that we have a "national" day of recognition for our love of quilting. As soon as I finish typing here I'm heading upstairs to sew!
Now speaking of sewing...I did my Fat Quarter Shop Designer BOM block 10 this week...cut it out Thursday and sewed it Friday.
For those of you who are also doing this BOM, don't be alarmed...you have done nothing wrong with your block. It's all about me not being able to concentrate on my cutting instructions and watch my recorded American Idol from Wednesday night. I guess I was more interested in why they were kicking Jermaine off than paying attention to the fabrics I was supposed to be cutting. Then while watching my recorded Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice from Thursday night I started sewing...just sewing away...Well, I didn't figure it out until I had connector corners on a whole bunch of blocks, and looked at the picture...YIKES...the dark pink is supposed to be all those outside petals, I completely reversed the blocks. Now wouldn't you think somewhere before I got too far along in this I would have figured out my error...NOPE! By then I had way too much done and decided it would be fine...in amongst the other flowers it will be cute, by the time it's put together I will have forgotten that I goofed and unless someone is looking at the pattern picture, no one will ever know. I'm pretty good at justifying, wouldn't you say...so this month's block is done...think I better pay better attention next month.
Here's what we did last weekend...good friends of ours have a place up in Georgia and they invited us up for the weekend. We all drove up on Friday morning and just had a ball. Ate wonderful food, talked and talked and talked, relaxed and went for a ride...this was a first for me. 60 years old and riding a 4 wheeler for the first time...
And last but not least...A Very Happy St. Patrick's day my Friends! ENJOY!
