Some Improvement . . .

I'm happy to say I was less achy and sore today although I felt like I was winded quicker during the work out.  But maybe that's just because I was working harder?  Hard to say.  But it felt good, finally.  I'm no where near the endurance level of the other gals who started two months before me, but they're all very encouraging.  I don't have another CrossFit session now until Monday night, so I'm thinking I should do SOMETHING to keep exercising in the interim.  At least some walking and a few stretching-type exercises.  And I think I can modify some of the CrossFit exercises to do at home without special equipment, like the sit ups/crunches, push ups, etc.

And tonight, after dinner, I felt a bit more enthusiastic about quilting, although I was awfully tempted to just kick back and read instead.  Still, I'm getting together with my stitchery friends on Saturday, and I always bring them a sheep blanket kit, so that's what I did tonight--I made up the wool kits.  Tomorrow night I'll get mine prepped to work on Saturday.

Did you, by any chance, see Synthia's comment yesterday about the teeny tiny cake stand blocks she's been working on?  It's a free pattern/sew along by Temecula Quilt Co.  I was thinking it would be an excellent scrap project for those of you who might want to participate in Scrap Basket Sunday.  You can find it HERE, with a link to the PDF pattern.  Between that and this month's Schnibbles project, it seems that baskets are popping up all over!  And that reminds me--I was thinking if I could just get myself to finish the Merry, Merry Snowman quilt, I could use my leftover French General fabric for the Schnibbles basket quilt.  Wouldn't that be pretty?  Hummmmm, maybe I'm getting my mojo back after all!

Ooh! French General for the Schnibbles basket quilt, that sounds good. I'd like to join in, am hooked on Schnibbles after making just one (like potato chips).

French General fabric would look so cute in this month's Schnibble.

Thelma from Cupcakes and Daisies blog started these tiny baskets the beginning of July. Take a look here:

This is a wonderful blog that I read every time she posts. Hers and yours are the only blogs I enjoy enough to read every day!

I have all the Temecula Quilt Co cake stand blocks ready to turn into a wall hanging. It was easier for me to do about 4 blocks at a time to get a rhythm going. They are the cutest little blocks and the sample quilts in person are amazing!
