…running with the wind at your back and the road ahead is straight and long, at least for the moment!
You may remember last week’s post when I shamefully shared that I had just not managed to get my Be My Neighbor sew along block finished in time to for my Monday post, in time to share it along with the Block 4 Blueprints. WELL. Guess who had an extraordinarily productive week last week?
Not only did I get block 4 finished…
…I got lots of other great things finished too! Before I get too far ahead – my Grunges of choice for block 4 above are as follows:
Peacoat 30150 353, Papaya Punch 30150 323, Teaberry 30150 329, and Bachelor 30150 342
I also finished this week’s block:
For my Block 5 Grunges, I used:
Aruba 30150 337, Gris 30150 278, and Rocacco 30150 322
The Block 5 Blueprints are next (and before you ask – I shall encourage you with all the warmth of a joyful embrace to also create the little applique bird if you feel so moved, but I didn’t – so I didn’t!) :
What else did I get finished, you ask? Well, besides catching the season premier of of Poldark on PBS…have I mentioned I’m a giant fan of period films and programming, especially British period films and programming, and also Public Television? Yep, once upon a time I may not have shared such guilty pleasures of mine out loud, but now I say –
the best thing about aging is just learning to say: This is me ~ Love me or leave me!
Anyone remember Who’s the Boss? Mmm hmm. I love goofy, nerdy 80s TV too. I also just updated my iPhone, so now I have easy GIF capabilities. My friends and family LOVE me for this (probably not). Either way, what I most love about GIFs is that it’s a little like using my hands when I talk (which happens constantly) or at the very least, lets me share a silly thought or feeling that is associated with either the expression on my face as I type, or a memory I have of something I’m reminded of. At any rate – GIFs rock. Don’t you agree?
Oh – we were talking about other things I got done this week. Fabric things:
Yep, I made some Mini Stacks too,
and hope to get those listed before day’s end.
Lastly, my extraordinary peace is that I was also able to get a few more blocks ahead for the Be My Neighbor sew along, which will be AWESOME, since Quilt Market is coming very soooooon!
All that and I almost forgot to say – Happy Monday! I hope your week is great 🙂
