This whole weekend has reeked of ground hog day. I've been working on WIPS. The same ones I've been working on since about 1983.
But by this afternoon , I was feeling like this.
Because I can move mountains of unfinished projects when I put my mind to it.
I whipped up 4 Farmers Wife Blocks which gives me a grand total of 8. I keep reminding myself it's not a race. (and wondering why no matter how carefully I cut and sew I end up with blocks anywhere from 6-7 inches when I'm finished)
I knocked off the last 20 Hourglass Blocks. I was doing the happy dance and fist pumping the air. I'm going to be so glad when this quilt is done because I cant wait to see how it looks!
And here's the finished pile. All 64 of them.
I finished the last of the Rainbow Log cabin Blocks too...
And laid them out so I can sew the top this week ...Scrappy and bright really makes me happy. I LOVE the way this quilt looks.
My flower garden hexagons got a workout after being neglected for about two months. 3 more done and another almost finished. I still have 36 to go....Fortunately, I'm not in a hurry.
Chocolate tarts rose like a phoenix from the ashes. This was meant to be chocolate fudge but I screwed it up so badly at the heating condensed milk stage that I had to improvise so as not to waste 400 grams (that's almost a pound ) of very nice dark chocolate. The tarts taste divine and it just wouldn't be right if I didn't manage to mess it up somehow. Just one question? Why does my pastry always end up looking like it has leprosy?
So I'm a happy camper ...I can finally see some progress and light at the end of the tunnel with projects that have been lurking forever , and I'm enjoying sucking the chocolate filling out of those tart cases. I'd call that a successful weekend.
