This is going to be a short post . I'm still trying to find my groove this week (in fact as I write this post -in a bloody hurry might I add- I should be in the shower and getting ready to go work !) and I don't have much to report on the sewing front.
Somewhere this past week in between babysitting Little P , and getting ready to go back to work, sewing took a back seat. I feel like I've been spinning my wheels and getting nowhere with projects. Progress has been made but nothing is getting finished. I'm not sure whether to keep working on bits and pieces or whether I should focus on one thing. It feels like there aren't many finishes happening.
The hourglass quilt blocks finally got some much needed TLC. I finished 10 new blocks this week. Forgive the photo quality . It's very dark and overcast here this morning (Summer - where for art thou?)
My Farmers Wife buddies will be pleased to hear I actually started them this past week. 2 down and 109 to go . This is going to be a real labour of love and a test of my patience. I'm going for near enough is good enough with these....seriously.
Little Miss Sunshine made mention in this post about our joint cooking session this past weekend. Instead of sewing on Saturday I indulged in a spot of confectionery making. I found a recipe for peppermint patties and because I am insane decided it would be great to make some. It seems I'm no better at wrangling chocolate to my will than I am at baking. They taste good but they don't look all that pretty. I mention this because it took about 5 hours away from sewing and I'm all about making excuses as to why I didn't achieve greatness this week. (There was also a lot of gardening going on here over the weekend - but that's the subject of another post)
Mental note to self: If you're a dumb arse and think it's the best idea ever to use a cooling rack to dry your chocolate covered mint patties you'll end up having to deal with this crap.
Which will result in peppermint patties that look like this.
Linking up with Kate again this week. She's doing a giveaway so pop on over , have a look and link up!
