Hello everyone! How is life going for you? For me, some of the burnout from the past couple of months of overwork has begun to ease, and I'm finally starting to feel normal again. An uneasy normal, but much more like myself. I was in the sewing room cleaning some things up this weekend, and I sat down and sewed and actually enjoyed it. I'm definitely on my way back!
I am so behind on all my projects, and on answering comments (sorry folks. I do really appreciate you!) and on many other things in my life as well. I finally vacuumed the bedroom for the first time in two months. Yikes. I am not even going to mention the state of the sewing room. So, if you're behind on everything, where do you start? Any where you want! I started here:
These are the green stars for the Random Ohio Stars quilt I'm working on for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year. It turns out to be a good thing that I didn't choose something more involved, doesn't it? I don't have much darker green, and almost no sage green, so this is what I managed to scrape together for the month. I think they're okay, though that larger one is kind of boring. Oh, well! It will get lost in the quilt, right?
I also wanted to go back and catch up on the colors I missed. I'm pretty sure that March was aqua and teal (Ihaven't looked up April yet), so here is my large aqua star:
Shown with some of the lovely flowers on my back deck! It felt good to bring out those larger pots and plant a few things here at our still-new-to-us house. We didn't move here until August, so we missed all of the spring and early summer, so I'm still discovering what's growing around here. There really is NO landscaping at all, just random stuff growing and out of control pachysandra. It's going to be a challenge.
I've also been working on a layout for the modern blocks:
I tried a few things and this is the one I liked the most. I haven't started sewing them all together yet, but these are easy as pie to make and so I'm zipping through them in between other things. I'm not to the end of my pile of cut blocks yet, and I might be tempted to cut a few more. I guess we'll see!
Hope you all are getting some stitching time in, even with the much nicer weather we've been having. My energy is definitely coming back, so I will see you again very soon!
