So, I went a bit rogue on this block. I was finding it way to orange (even thought I like orange), I made what was supposed to dark light and vice versa and then rotated the block. It gave it a weird effect, that I find tolerable. Not totally in love it, but it does help the totally orange look that I had enough of.
I have also created a blog for our quilt guild, Marysville Crazy Quilters. Feel free to take a look at some of the quilts and projects my quilting friends are working on. The guild does a lot of charity work, which I like.
Personally, I still feel crazy. I have come to the conclusion that Covid is truly a state of mind. I don’t like it. This Covid state of mind has me less likely to quilt. I find myself staring at the TV or the ceiling of the bedroom and rarely wandering over to my studio. I have to get out of that state of mind. I am struggling to make a few blocks for a mystery quilt. Jeez. I find I do more when I actually have less time to do it. How is that right? I do have plans to make a few Christmas gifts so I better get moving. I also have had a quilt on the longarm for a couple of months. It stares at me as I walk by and yells insults at me for ignoring it. Ugh.
So I had every intention of participating in One Monthly Goal. However, I can not keep track of days or dates. Here it is April 9, 2020, missed it! I swear I may be losing my mind. It is like time has stood still in my mind because nothing changes, yet it is actually continuing.
I might as well tell you what my goal was. My intention for the One Monthly Goal was to complete the top for a charity quilt. My quilt guild had about 35 kits ready to pass out at meetings, yet we are not having meetings, so they volunteered to drop them off. I said I would do a couple, considering I needed some motivation to actually do something.
Don’t care for it one bit. The dark brown bother me. The instruction I had for this quilt were crazy. They were all wrong and totally goofy. I am not a good instruction follower in general, but since this was not my fabric and for charity, I thought I should actually read them and follow them. WRONG. They were wrong on most counts, what needed cut, the layout, everything. It still needs borders and I am hoping that makes it look a little better, but I am not very hopeful. I am hoping this is meant for a man.
Mostly working from home. I am getting better at that. I get up early before everyone else gets up so I can get as much done as possible before they arise. They are pretty good at not bothering me though, with the exception of the dogs. “Hey Mom us up, let’s all sit on her.”
I hope you are all staying safe. Happy Sewing, Happy Quilting.
