I have to give a shout out again to Valerie once again for winning my giveaway. I'm so thrilled you won! Actually I wish that everyone could have won, but I don't think I could find enough flower frogs. Perhaps in the future!
I have made so little progress on stitching. I don't know what it is - summer? And I notice a lot of my blogging buddies are experiencing the same thing. I know that I have a hard time sitting down at night. But I got a little more done on my A&E sampler:
All this weekend, I had a song going through my head - Let's Go Crazy by Prince. Not my most favorite songs by him, but I couldn't get it out of my head. My intentions were to get into my craft room and clean out the closet for my sister's arrival so that we could put the shelving in. Well, one thing led to another - resulting in a huge mess. I know, my blog started off as a stitching blog, but bear with me - you just gotta go with the flow, right?
All the Farmer's Wife blocks done for the month. The pink and green one at the bottom was the one I had to recut and piece over. Now I'm caught up and awaiting next months!!
Two more Civil War blocks. Although the one on the left seems to have a serious problem that I didn't notice until I went to iron it out. I know what I did and have since ripped it out to resew, along with those blocks from my last post - UGH, I hate ripping things out.
Now this is where the ADD comes in. Those pictures above were done here and there during the week when I could catch an hour or so. Then I thought it was time to get into the closet and clean it out for the anticipated shelving, but what resides in the closet? Well, pizza boxes with quilts in some form of cutting, or finishing - along with a multitude of other things that catch my attention. I've posted a picture of the infamous pizza boxes before. They're just the right size for holding my projects. Anyway, I start peeking into the pizza boxes (even though they're all labeled) and I come across projects all cut out and ready to sew. I have a tendency to go through marathon cutting sessions so that I can sew to my hearts content when I have the time. Now my mind is much more into sewing than clearing out the closet, so ADD kicks in and this results:
And if that wasn't enough, more ADD kicked in and I decided to now start on something else. I posted these blocks a while ago:
And then to add to the craziness I had to purchase these - like I don't have enough going on, right? I couldn't resist - I saw them on Amazon and had to have them. Just love Amazon for those great prices:
Well, that's been my week. I'm off now to string lights into a huge (stage sized) piece of fabric to replicate a night sky for my DD's play. I can't believe the performances are next week. This summer certainly is flying by. The next couple weeks are going to be crazy ones with my sister coming in and a small vacation, but hopefully I'll find time to keep up with blogs and maybe some stitching and quilting too.
Thanks again to everyone that entered my giveaway and to all the new followers - I was overwhelmed how many new ones I saw. I'll be tracking down your blogs soon and I hope that you'll stop and say hello every once in a while. I love reading your comments! Have a great week!
