Times like this I desperately need a goal, so for March’s One Monthly Goal I’m going to get at least one half of Mister’s Nappy Quilt blocks sewn together. He selected Primitive Gathering’s Trotting Along pattern out over a year ago, and this past weekend pulled fabric from my stash and turned the background choices over to me. He also wants a 4×5 block setting instead of the whole quilt.
I did get started on the first block. LOL
I have some things coming up in March that will lessen the amount of time I normally have available to sew (on top of my blah). I feel like there has been so much pulling at my brain, that I cannot settle in my sewing room! I did cut some more manly napping quilt blocks this past Tuesday, but I just cannot sit to set them sewn. Blah!
The construction and repair has been completed, finally, on our home. The carpet people were here yesterday and I now have a master bedroom full of brand new padding and carpet, and the family room is back in one piece as well (some padding had to be replaced, and the carpet re-stretched). Other than 2 black smudges of something on my brand new painted bedroom wall, everything is back the way it was before, only better. I took the opportunity of everything being in upheaval, and Mister being there, to deep clean all around the furniture, and the baseboards in the bedroom and bath (since things were moved in there to make room to “store” the bed while the carpet was being done. That “spring cleaning” chore is done, and I should feel liberated, but instead, I’m still blah.
March’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is red, so I’ll be working on 15 neutral- and 15 black-cornered red lozenges.
RSC17 – 30 Red Lozenges
OMG – 10 completed blocks on Trotting Along
Farmer’s Wife – 5 blocks
Charity – 3 hours, last Saturday.
Nice pattern. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project.
Glad your construction is all wrapped up, that must’ve been stressful! Lovely start on your quilt blocks. I’ve had a quilting bug lately, hopefully will start something new soon!
I hope the blahs leave soon – they are no fun!!
