Slow Progress

Instead of the lazy days of summer, I have the lazy days of spring. Last night I walked my two miles and then planted 6 patio pots with beautiful, colorful flowers to spread around the patio. That is, after I hose away all of the pollen this weekend.

I have 4 blocks for my "Be Attitudes" quilt made. I think I'm going to get the applique cut out and ready to iron also. That way, if I want to stitch the applique while I am camping (next weekend) the blocks will be ready.

I also have 11 blocks made for Becca's quilt now. so, I have accomplished a little bit this week.

The blocks won't go together like this. I still need the outside border pieced on each block. They are just put up on my design wall in the order I got finished with them. You can see my pink wall hanging still waiting to be quilted. I find that I am a jumpy quilter. I jump from project to project and back again. HeHe. I guess I get bored with one thing and want a change of scenery.

I also have this quilt top that needs borders. It needs to be finished so I can put it on the bed in the guest bedroom. I was planning to add two plain borders but I may decide to add a narrow plain border and then a pieced border. We'll see. I have lots to do so. . . goodnight.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!


  1. Please send me some of your motivation...I have so much work that needs done in my garden and patio plants. Yours look lovely. I can't wait to see what you do with Becca's quilt.

  2. Vivian,

    I love that tan/brown quilt - can't wait to see it finished. :)

  3. Oh me too, LOVE the tan and brown quilt, positively yummy!

    I had so many gardening plans for this year, and I can't get motivated to tackle any of them. Please come over and do mine too! LOL

  4. Oh your plants are looking great! As is your Be Attitudes quilt! I think I need some of your energy! :)
