I'm off and running around with Tetsu today so this post is short.
What have I been doing?
A nice long walk with Choco yesterday. We practically stepped on a huge snake and I thought "Hmmm. I wonder if I should go get my camera and take a picture and post it." Decided that it would scare you all to pieces and no one would ever visit again! Besides, on our way back from the walk the snake was gone. But we do get a lot of snakes around here.
Mostly I've been quilting the Wonky Word quilt. That's fun, and since it is wonky to begin with, I'm not worrying about the length of my stitches nor if I miss a stitch on the back etc. No quilt police are going to see it (but Mrs. Furui and friends may raise an eyebrow.) I figure if I quilt 6 fans a day then I'll have it quilted by the end of July.
I have so much fun quilting that I've ignored all my other goals for this month. No work on the applique, no work on the prayer and square quilt, no work on the feathered star block (that was a hidden goal). I really must focus myself on those next week. Hopeful thoughts.
And as reported before, I've started another project which is the 365 Challenge. So far just cutting the fabrics and I love the colors but don't know how this is going to work with writing. As Atet pointed out, no one says the blocks have to be beige or white and even paper comes in many colors. So, here are my blocks! Colorful to say the least!
But I had soooo much trouble cutting the fabric because of aforementioned "lack of brain for mathematics". Really pitiful how much fabric I cut wrong. I'll use it for a crumb quilt someday. (Hah!) And I'm not starting this quilt for another month because I want to begin on my 52 birthday. So, these blocks are all put away in plastic bags and are waiting for me. (I hope I don't forget where I put the bags.)
