It seems like not that long ago I was making resolutions and plans for this year...and listing UFOs and WIPs...not one of which were actually accomplished. And that Studi-O-rganization Challenge? Ha! (Although I'm sharing the blame with Allison on that one.)
I have been in a bit of a fog, having to think hard about once mindless tasks and sleeping a lot. I'm not sure if it's the weather or if I'm having some sort of age-related issue, but I just feel blah. Not sick. Just foggy.
In trying to get my groove back, I started work on a paper piecing project. I got the two halves done, only to figure out that one half was upside down and backwards.
I decided to move onto something a little easier - this adorable Disappearing Nine Patch I saw on Pinterest. Christina from A Few Scraps showed me how simple it would be. And it was.
That's not to say that I had no trouble in my foggy state. I managed to wind an entire bobbin without realizing that the thread was lined up wrong.
|This is what my brain feels like. And the result.|
But I powered through and have finished the top. I'll be bringing it to Mom today so she can start hand quilting it. None too soon, either, since the baby's due date has gotten bumped from early February to a firm January 15.
We are all excited to meet this precious little boy who my cousin and his wife are expecting. We are extra excited because the baby is the first - and maybe only - boy to carry on my maternal grandparents' name.
|I pieced a back too. It took every single one of my brain cells!|
So here's to getting my groove back, one stitch at a time. I wish you all a happy and safe New Year's Eve, and hope to see you sewing tomorrow for the 1st Annual Quilts of Valor New Year's Day Sit and Sew, or whatever you choose to work on.
