Just wanted to pop in this morning for a quick hello.
This week has been extremely busy on all fronts and today might be the day I finally lose my mind! The kids must be picking up on my stress because this morning before school everyone was throwing tantrums and such. It was all I could do to make sure everyone got out the door in time for the bus. Ah, happy mornings... :(
Luckily I've been able to steal a few moments from the craziness of the week to sew. I saw a funny quote on pinterest somewhere that went something like this: "I Sew So I Don't Kill" Yep, that pretty much sums it up... But, thankfully everyone is alive and well. Not happy, but well. :)
A few weeks ago I showed this stack of fabric that I've had pulled for 18 months or so. Sometimes I post things like that in hopes that it motivates me to work on said project.
Well, I've been working.
Here's where I'm at with it.
(Forgive my hastily taken camera phone pic. It's all I could manage today.)
I'm doing a small #scrappytripalong.
While I'm not normally a band wagon jumper, I just needed to be done with this project. The scrappy trip block seemed the perfect speedy block to help me end the misery of my poor fabrics.
While I'm not swooning over it, I am SO HAPPY to be moving along. I think I only have 8 or so blocks to go. This particular quilt might just be one to test every ounce of my endurance, though. Can I finish it without losing my mind? Only time will tell...
On a side note, don't forget you can still enter to win a copy of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine. It's a great resource for new block ideas. Since my blog is new and my readership is still small the odds are in your favor! You have until Monday.
Lastly, my mom reads my blog (Hi Mom!!) so I wanted to show off the nifty coffee mug I received from Quiltmaker for being part of #100blocks. Cute, huh?
Look, Mom! There's my block! :)
(It will be happy, right?)
Linking up to Finish It Up Friday
