Design Wall Monday - 5/23/16

Instead of moping 100% this weekend I just dug right into my hexies Thursday/Friday evenings and half of Saturday.

My fav fabric of the 5 is bottom left.
The 2 bottom fabrics I just got in Cobleskill.

And what better project to work on while moping? Why Salt & Pepper, of course!! Read about how the project started here.

Eventually I got tired of working on the stars and moved my sorry butt to the Quilt Lab, looking for something "different" to work on. I quickly remembered from my recent trunk show that I told everyone of my Rose Star project. It's become my camping only project. I had no actual finished project in mind when I started it - I just had 12 or so coordinated FQs and I wanted to make as many blocks as I could. I decided that I would finish fussy cutting the parts so I would be prepared for the 3 camping trips I am planning on this summer. This will give me 23 blocks - a weird number but it will work out perfectly for a layout that I found.

I had meant to bring the neutral bits to work to stitch during lunches this week but managed to leave it at home. Boo! Hiss!

For the rest of Saturday I worked on The Bathroom Floor but didn't take any pictures.

You'll be glad I didn't take pictures of what I did on Sunday - spending an hour or so in each room of the house; cleaning, putting away and purging. We won't get into the psychology of that project but the mutlitple bags in the garbage can and windows open to let in the sunshine and fresh air helped lift my mood in this big, old, "empty" house where the  remaining feline wants to spend his time outside...

There was a piece on the news tonight about the local animal shelter needing foster families for cats and kittens right now. I wanted to bring them all home with me. Hope the sun continues to shine this week for you. Shorts, shorts, shorts!! :)

I feel your pain right now - keeping busy is a good way to work thru it. I am purging too - but for other reasons.

Nothing wrong with moping--especially when it is spelled m.o.u.r.n.i.n.g..

they say time is a healer but I know that does not help yet, I feel for you.
The heixes are so nice all that fussy cutting you have done had paid off so well. I read about a new book a calender block a day of hexies that is due out soon by Katja Marek very tempted but so far have resisted to order prior to pubishing

Your projects are looking very good. Love the Salt and Pepper fabrics. I'm glad you managed to keep busy this weekend. It sure does help. You've also got a clean and sorted house to boot. Sometimes an impromptu sort and clean works best. You know, get at it while you are in the right frame of mind to do it.
