I am so behind on responding to emails/comments I am never going to catch up. Will everyone who has emailed me or commented on my posts since about Wednesday please forgive me if I don't respond individually like I normally try to do. I ended up working about 130 hours this past week (not bad for a girl who is supposed to work 33 ) and by Friday I was talking in grunts and sign language. I was also incapable of recalling my own name. Frankly I think I did well to keep up with comments on your posts although I suspect my comments weren't as scintillating as usual. The bad news is it's not going to get any better since it looks like I will be going back to work fulltime in the next couple of weeks for the foreseeable future. This would be because Mr. P has been out of work again for about 5 weeks and someone needs to bring home the bacon. (There ..I said it ...out loud ...without making it sound like my life is a bad country and western song )
As a result of the aforementioned work craziness an almost complete lack of crafting occurred this week. If you've come looking for creativity this Sunday you're about to be sorely disappointed.
I finished the Snowball Quilt except for the borders which I intended to do this afternoon but I fell asleep for 3 hours instead. By the time I woke up at 7.30pm any remaining shreds of creativity had completely fled. We may see a finish next week.
My poor Dresden's remained completely neglected. That would be because I'm not sure where they actually are in the mess that is my sewing room.
I did start something new yesterday which will hopefully be finished in the next week or so. I need something fast to finish at the moment.
The mail this week was very exciting. Little Miss Sunshine was having a de-stash and I was the beneficiary of her clean out. See the babushkas? I love Babushkas. The fish is for a quilt I'll be making for Little P later in the year . The jelly roll strips will be made into something gorgeous at some stage. I'll wait for inspiration to strike.
And the delightful Amanda sent me these which I will be hanging in my sewing room. One will be going on my rear view mirror in the car because they're 100 times nicer than fluffy dice. Thank you Amanda-they're so cute!
And I've decided that along with Becks Paper Piecing Quiltalong which starts this month , the PhD challenge (two down and two to go ) , my Dresden Quilt , and the two other quilts I have sitting here unfinished at the moment I want to add something else to the mix so I've just ordered this pattern and I'll be doing this at some point soon. Because I don't have enough pressure in my life. But isn't this gorgeous? The more I see of Sandy Klop's fabrics and designs the more I love them.
I hope you have a craftilicious week.
