Well, come Sunday, I was looking at all the blocks I have. I am participating in three BOM's and a Quilting Bee. Plus I have a block swap that I need to finish up my blocks for because those are due this month. Then there is also the Grandma's Flower Garden which I began while we were on vacation. So I have BLOCKS everywhere!
Sunday was a day where I just spent sorting, cutting, and hand-piecing MORE blocks! HA! Sounds funny, I know - but I am two months behind with one of the BOM's - so I was getting all those cut. Then I spent part of the day hand-piecing more of the flowers for the garden.
I also spent some of the day reviewing notes for the Newbie-Blogger Blog Hop which I am participating in! It's a huge hop and you should really come check it out! It starts on June 4th...I have learned so much from this group of Bloggers and I feel very fortunate to be able to participate with this group.
Anyway, some of those notes have prompted me to make some changes to my blog, and I have a few more underway. It's been a great learning opportunity! So please check back on Wednesday so you can check out our blog hop!
And my greatest source of pride this weekend - I was randomly selected as a winner of a box of Aurifil thread!!! I got an email from Pat Sloan and my block for the Aurifil BOM which I have been participating was randomly drawn as the winner... It is my first time since I began quilting that I have won anything!
I have two projects that I still need to quilt - I am hoping to get to those this week. So tell me... Do you ever feel overwhelmed by all the projects you have underway? I think the nice thing about BOMs is that you only have to make one or two blocks a month. Granted, it takes a long time to finish an entire project - but it leaves you time to work on other things throughout the month/year also.
If you have finished a BOM, share a link with me! I would love to see!
Until next time my quilty friends ~ PIECE!
