Now, what little bit of time I do have (because my "pay the bills" job has been demanding LOTS of long hours lately), I've been spending it doing ALOT of nothing. While I realize that we all get in those modes now and again, it is very frustrating because I know that I have alot I SHOULD be doing, and even more that I WANT to be doing.
The saving grace, has been that I can always count on a little charitable sewing...as there is no bigger motivater then doing things for others.
First, my guild (St. Louis MQG) is participating in the "To Boston With Love" pennant collection. Did you hear that all of the pennants will hang in the prestigious Boston Museum of Fine Arts will exhibit the collection on May 23rd through June 16th...AWESOME!!!
Here are my 3 pennant contributions. The first is a Paper Pieced Flying Geese, and the others are appliqued.
And as part of the monthly do.Good.Stitches Bee (Trust Circle). I contributed these 2 blocks.
Third, I'm working on piecing and quilting all of the blocks that were collected during my month of the do.Good.Stitches Bee (Trust Circle). I can't wait to put the finishing touches on this one and share it with the group.
Obviously, these weeks haven't been completely unproductive, as evidenced by the above; but they they haven't been what I would consider usual. I'll just continue to take it one day at a time and see what happens.
One goal I do have is that after Memorial Day, I'll be looking for some Pattern Testers. Yep, it's about that time again. I'm working on my next 2 quilt patterns and need some assistance. So if you are interested, definately let me know and I'll put your name on the "Eager Beaver" list. The official call will go out in a few weeks.
Happy Thursday !!
P.S. I have gotten a few emails asking if I will be making another pixelated quilt anytime soon. Honestly, I'm dying to do another one (Yep, even after all of that tedious work); but it's going to have to wait a while.
