Playing catch-up

Boy I can't believe its been almost a week since my last post. Unfortunately, I can't say I've been accomplishing much. I've been dealing with a lot of pain and fatigue issues lately, really slows down the creative process let me tell ya. :( I have been trying to get done what I can when I can. I barely touched my machine last week so this week I am trying to catch up a bit with my swaps and getting some projects done. I have been able to get some quilting done on Jessica's quilt, and I got the two baby quilts basted. Also been working on the Cathedral windows quilt. I don't know how big I'm going to make it yet. Honestly I am just going to buy the foundation fabric as I can afford and when I can't find anymore I'll call it big enough. OK that may not be entirely true if I keep buying as long as I can find it those windows could cover the whole world *lol* so I will stop before that :cD One fun thing... two of the swaps I'm involved in are 'no-sew' so I've gotten two fun packages in the mail lately. The first one was to welcome spring, look at all the fun goodies that came my way!

I would love to share what is in the second, but honestly, I don't even know yet. It is for one of my on-line group's anniversary and they are having an on-line party when we will open them. Yes, I'm being a good girl and I haven't opened mine. (I almost typed "touched" there, but yes I've touched it, and shaken it, and sniffed it, I am a curious soul after all ;) ) I can share one thing I put in the package for my swap mate. Hope she likes it.

Spring break has been nice although not to 'springy' its actually still kind of chilly, but we were able to get out to a playground today. DS will be going to work with City tomorrow so DD and I are going to have a girls day out. It's also my day off so it will be nice to spend time just us girls and not have the pressure of trying to fit everything in before we have to pick up DS from school or go into work. Not sure what all we'll do. I'm thinking maybe lunch out, some window shopping maybe a stop by Jo-Anns to pick up some fabric and a craft we can do together, and a stop by the park. I'm sure we'll enjoy our 'girl's day out' no matter what we end up doing :cD

Well, I'm off to play a little more 'catch up' warm country wishes!!

So sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. A bit of fabric buying should help. Fun getting packages, isn't it! Looks like you had a good partner!

I need half your energy so I can get somethings done as well. Enjoy your girls day out and hope you feel better soon!

Barb said...

Oh no get better soon! No fun feeling all worn out and tired, BUT your surprise package looks like it could have been fun when you opened it! Sounds like maybe you are becoming addicted to those Cathedral Windows - keep on going and have fun with them!
