Has been more than a little disconnected. Do you know that feeling? It's a mixture of stress, sadness, exhaustion with a little dose of funk. But the sun is shining and green is returning and so I am diving back into color and joy and maybe I'll get crazy and even do some spring cleaning!!
But first a little organization is in order. I'm a big list person and for this we pull out the big guns....the mother of all Post-its, the poster sized! And now I have 2 lists posted: the Gotta list, the things I've got to get done and most have a deadline and the Wanna list, the things I want to get done next, some UFOs and some are new ones.
Now I can see (and can't avoid) the stuff that needs to get done and focus on that first, that is, of course, til someone drags me to a show or shop and gets me going on a whole new project!!
In the midst of my funk, I did manage to get a few things done, even without a list...
The last Sister challenge was to use a tool from your tool stash that you had never used (you might have one or two of these two!). I went to the top of the pile and used a ruler that I bought in Houston. See my mistake was to walk slowly past Deb Tucker's booth, her energy and fun just pull you in and you end up buying her rulers.
This tool was GREAT!!! you make the whole LeMoyne Star from strips, no cutting pieces with pointy ends on them. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow, but a word of advice....you will NEED to read these instructions, no looking at the pictures only, as I have been known to do.
And lickety split, I had a little quilt with 9 little LeMoynes and no angst.
And no fabric was purchased in the pursuit of this quilt! Maybe I'll try a bigger quilt with a couple different sizes....oh wait, is that on the list?
