Okay, you're right. I'm not actually working on 281 block-of-the-month projects, but it seems like it. I knew the day would come when I'd start to feel that way. After all, how could I remain ignorant when I'm the one who keeps signing up for this stuff?! Although if Hubby asks, I might plead early onset Alzheimer's. (And that's not to say I don't understand Alzheimer's is a very serious disease; it's simply that I'm just not a very respectful, tactful, circumspect person and I have an irreverant sense of humor.)
About a week ago, the first block kit of Shabby Fabric's Sweetheart Houses arrived, and I've been working on it all week--I finally finished it Friday night:
The color contrast doesn't show up very well in my photo--and I took a couple photos on different settings, but none of them were very distinct. Oh, well, take my word for it--it's a cute project, although I DO kind of wish the blue of the flower pot was a little darker. Maybe I'll have to see if I can do something to change that; if not on this block, at least where blue is used in the others.
Isn't the tiny white rick rack on the windows cute? More fun than embroidery too!
Luckily, my group of appliquers is getting close to finishing our Autumn House block of the month project, so that will drop one off the schedule. AND I don't have too many more sections to go before the Garden Club block of the month is done too. Hopefully I won't get so overwhelmed with having too many projects going at once that I decide to just shut down. Do you do that? I think there has to be the right balance.
What else is new? Trial ended today: We reached verdicts on most of the 18 counts we were asked to consider, although we were hung on 3 counts. I'll have to tell you more about it in another post now that I can.
Also, the aches and pains I was suffering over the past week are starting to get a lot better. I think I'll take a muscle relaxant now, before bed, but this might be the last one unless I aggravate it when return to work on Monday.
In the meantime . . . happy Saturday!
