I have just been loving my Little Bits Quilting Bee book. I finished the geometric one, but haven’t been able to get the right photo of it yet after many attempts. I spent months finding the perfect fabrics to work on the popsicle quilt, as it’s the reason I bought the book. I just adore this quilt and I’m very excited about it. I’m doing the whole enchilada on this one (ie hand quilting). I have all of the squares pieced and am working on getting them sewn together to make the quilt top. I’ve only got a few lines left to go but have hit some sort of quilting wall. Does this happen to you? I’ll work and toil away on something for weeks or months and then poof! It sits in my closet for a while. Maybe we’re taking a breather from each other.
I’ve been spending most of my time gardening. After about a month, I’ve got all my beds cleaned up. I find gardening so rewarding! It’s so lovely to see things come up year after year and watch your efforts multiply and grow each year. My next effort is going to be a Craigslist purge. I’ve got a number of things, mostly furniture, that I need to sell.
