Snowball Quilt Along - Week 5





Just call me Your Royal Slackness......



After my snowball frenzy of last week, this week all I managed was to  square up about 15  of the snowballs I made last week. And eat a bag of snowballs in the process. Marshmallow snowballs....not fabric snowballs.

I feel I should make excuses for under-performing but isn't that the beauty of this quilt along...no guilt? Do what you can- when you can. So I'm not going  blather on about my long work hours, having no ceiling and spending time with my sister. My sewing machine has been totally neglected this week aside from one small project I started.

I'll see you all next week (hopefully with some actual progress!) . I'm off to give my sewing machine some attention.

Slack bum!! Nah don't be silly, you just get things done when you get them done. Life is all about no pressure, breathe in, breathe out and go with the flow. Listen to the old fart.... lol

Umm, aren't you in the middle of a major renovation? I can't even possibly imagine trying to sew while all that's going on! Give yourself a break. The snowballs will wait. Happy Monday! :o)

It's okay. I haven't touched my machine in a week. We've been getting ready for company, had company, and are recovering from company. Soon, I hope.

Hey! We've all got stuff. Well done on squaring them up I reckon. Walked past packets of choccy snowballs at my local foodland on the weekend. Thought of you and decided I still don't like them! Yuck! Left them there at foodland. For you.

Slacker! (I tell it like it is.) hehe

See, I think that just means you are plotting and planning sewing in your head, and when the process is done, we'll see a flurry of snowballs. At least that's the way it works for me. I often have to mull a project from time to time. Of course, I do see how the no ceiling and having to get your coffee out of the bathroom could be a distraction!

Oh, and here I had high hopes of seeing a bright n'shiny new pile of snowballs. Hmmph.

So glad you let the sewing machine have a week off. I think mine has forgotten who I am and what to do.

Enjoy
