The essence of time seems to speed up as I add to my growth rings.
I took a small respite from quilting and sewing and did absolutely nothing crafty. I had to reset whatever clock pushes my passion for quilting.
My mother visited briefly yesterday and asked if I had worked on the green lemonade quilt. I said I had not touched any part of the project for a couple of weeks. I also informed her that I was so close to being done.
So in leu of that happening and then the mailman brought me 2 packages. I seemed to find the fire again. I bought the book by Anita Grossman Solomon entitled Perfect Blocks in minutes the Make It Simpler way. I believe I had red someone’s blog that they had checked this book out from the library or had met her or something. So I went bargin hunting on amazon and found the book for pennies on the dollar. I am very satisfied and the blocks in the book will eventually turn into something for someone. I also received the yardage in the mail for the back of green lemonade. As much as I want to share this with you, I am going to leave this as a surprise. It will make you smile and it goes perfectly with the color scheme.
So I put my big girl panties on and proceeded to sew. And I enjoyed it! and sewed for about 2 1/2 hours! With no interruptions! I have a few more melons to sew to the borders and then it will be ready for sandwiching. *Whew* that one was a lot of work, considering I tried to take a shortcut by buying it half done.
Thread choice, not sure which way to go. If I choose white I will be able to break up a lot of the green, Perhaps I should go with multiple thread colors. I just hope when I go to quilt this, all my problems are behind me.
