Hi all! I really didn't fall off the earth, I promise! The worst semester ever finally ended, and since I turned in the final grades I've just kind of been floating a bit. Feeling a little unmoored without 10 to 12 hours of work to do, ya know? And I wouldn't want to insult anyone who has actual PTSD, but it's felt a little like PTSD, if you know what I mean. So I've just been kind of disjointed, petting some fabric, cleaning some things, planting a few flowers. It's been kind of peaceful, to tell the truth.
As a result, I only have one picture to show today. This is a first!
These are the blocks I made for the color challenge at Patterns by Jen. These were very easy and were almost mindless to piece. Usually I dislike big blocks with big pieces, but these blocks have really been saving my sanity through this whole virus experience. And I love the green leaves and the flowers, too. So looking forward to planting more stuff outside.
The only other fabric-related things I have to show today are the fun new fabrics I got from Bernie's shop:
Turns out that shopping online is super-easy to do from your sofa, even when your brain is really tired. Seriously, though, I have a plan for all of these fabrics. The birds are going to grace my living room, just as soon as I get motivated to make a few baskets from them.
Finally, a couple of pictures from my sanity-saving walks around the neighborhood. First, some rocks painted by my neighbor's kids to cheer us all up:
Also, the last of the forsythia, which everyone here seems to have (except us, for some odd reason):
So that's what's going on here! I'm still pretty mentally exhausted, so I'll spend this weekend going to our virtual graduation, then wandering around the house some more. It's going to rain a good part of next week, so I have high hopes of actually accomplishing things then. Have a safe and happy weekend, folks!
Sharing at soscrappy because of the dark green, and later (if I remember) at Patterns by Jen.
