... it's either the sun peeking out from the rainclouds or the light at the end of the tunnel, but things are starting to brighten up.
Last night I rediscovered my sewing room for the first time in SEVENTEEN days. That's right, I counted. I had to skip quilt guild to do it, but that wasn't that hard a choice, since it was our social that started at 6 PM and I could not even get myself there by then, let alone bring a covered dish to share with the members.
Anyway, I can't show you what I worked on, though, because all I had time to do is catch up on my deadlines for Quiltmaker Magazine and testing the blocks for their upcoming 100 Blocks, Volume Six. I will say though that one of them was particularly fun to make and only required that I dive into my bin of precut strips and squares to do! I've made five blocks so far and am really enjoying the challenge, and I can't wait to share more with you.
Since I've had the 100 Blocks issues on the brain lately, then, imagine my excitement when I found out that I was the lucky winner of the Volume Five issue that Lee Heinrich gave away over at her blog, Freshly Pieced, as part of the 100 Blocks Tour!! I have been SO BUSY with work and personal life (I think I have now had three different weddings to my Honey since the beginning of the year) that I did not have much time to visit many of the blogs on the tour, and yet I kept peeking at my email on my phone all weekend to see if maybe I got a "Congratulations, you won!" email. It didn't come until yesterday, but despite the odds, it came!! I can't wait to get my copy and, well, let it distract me from the projects I have started from the previous issues ...?
Anyway, work is calling for now, time to get back to it. But I am bound and determined to get back to finishing the border for Civil War Chronicles soon ...
