I can already tell this is going to be a miscellaneous sort of week in many ways. Thimbleberries Club on Wednesday night means not much sewing going on that night and I'll be spending some time on Tuesday night assembling show and tell and a few other things to bring to the meeting. And the monthly gathering of my stitchery group on Saturday means time spent this week preparing sheep blanket kits for my friends AND getting my own sheep blanket ready to stitch while we're together. I'm not complaining--I love my groups and friends. But it means I can't come home from work every night and play in the Sweat Shop as I usually would.
And then there are the projects I'm working on--miscellaneous stuff. I'm about half finished quilting George, the Schnibbles quilt. And let's not forget those scrap blocks: I only had time to select fabrics and cut four blocks on Sunday, so tonight I pieced three of them, and I have one more to piece. Then there was QADD: Quilter's Attention Deficit Disorder. I'm pretty sure that's what made me set aside piecing the scrap blocks for awhile tonight to piece, quilt, and bind a little mug mat.
Perhaps you recall that earlier in the year, I wanted to make a mug mat for my desk at work every month or every holiday. I think the last one I made was for St. Patrick's Day, so it was about time to make another, and I'd been setting aside random leftover pieces of the spring time fabrics I'd used in the two Easter projects I recently finished. I guess maybe I got tired of moving aside my little pile of scraps for this project, because tonight I finally made that mug mat.
