Hey y’all! Miss me? I missed me. Apologies for the absence, but the last 2 and a half weeks of my life have been a mess. Yes, it would make a riveting made-for-TV-movie script. In fact, if I wouldn’t have lived it – I’d have never believed it….. Too bad we can’t hit the rewind button in “real life”. 😦 Oh, how I wish we could on SOME things – not everything, just the most painful ones…..
Anyhow, I hope your past few weeks have been less eventful than mine – and a whole lot less psychologically damaging/stressful.
Onto a new train of thought…
After taking mental inventory regarding why I was being lazy about 2 new quilts I’m working on, it dawned on me that I had just finished 5 quilts (from start to finish) in just as many months. That revelation gave me “permission” to be a bit lacksadazical in my approach to these 2 quilts – especially since one of them is requiring me to piece blocks that ARE NOT EVEN REMOTELY SQUARE, and made up of a fabric NOT recommended for quilt making!!! Ugh…. 😦
Can you say Nightmare-Should-Be-An-Art-Quilt anyone???
So, I’m just going to work on the parts that ARE square for a while! The recipient knows all about the quilt, and got a good laugh at me and my quandry yesterday when I showed them what the hold up was. They then helped me come up with a plan to try to make those huge, wonky shaped “blocks” work in some manner (they are large cut-up pieces of T-shirts that contain autographs written by past school mates covering the last 7 years of the recipients school career – instead of signing Yearbooks, the kids would sign each others T-shirts with permanent markers at the end of the year). So, now I at least have some kind of a plan for that quilt – because the original plan just DIDN’T work! 😉
As soon as I have something presentable to show you of the quilt, I’ll post pictures – but, until then, you will just have to use your imagination. 🙂
Well, it’s off to “the day job” for now, so you have a great day – and I’ll try to not stay away so long this time. 😉 In the mean-time, here are a couple of photo’s for you to enjoy!
