I can’t seem to get my teeth into anything properly at the moment before my energy levels bottom out. Lots of good intentions that are not making it to completion. I am very frustrated. It’s February already and the bulbs are poking their heads out of the soil and I haven’t done half of what was on my mental list. But being realistic, my mental list is frequently as my husband says – mental.
Saying this, I did finish all the first set of blocks for my checkerboard quilt top.
Then cut them into strips, to my son’s amazement. He was at home with a high temperature fluey thing. He doesn’t understand cutting fabric and sewing it together in attractive combinations, then cutting it up again. Putting it like this, it does sound a bit nuts.
I then laid out all my strips and worked out my blocks.
Very satisfying to know that when I have 10 minutes, I can pick up a set and sew together a block. Not so good is the lack of energy to sew them since.
This is the first of the five I did last week.
There are either 30 or 31 left to sew. I haven’t decided whether to do 6 x 6 blocks or 7 x 5 blocks and use the last one for a matching cushion. I’ll decide when I lay them out for joining. They are so pretty, just wish I had more energy at the moment.
What project is frustrating you at the moment?
