Just a recap on the week and how it has gone. I’m not a monogamous crafter or even monogamous within the craft. I always have several projects going on at a time. And this is the first time in a long time, I have been working on a single project straight. I did have some knitting in there since Thursday is knit night but other than that, I’ve been working on this cushion. And to be honest, I’m not enjoying it. I absolutely hate not having the time to cross stitch or work on other quilty projects and being on a deadline. But I still want to have everything ready to put the cushion together so I’m putting my big girl panties on and moving forward. I am liking how things are turning out. I just don’t like rushing.
As you know from Tuesday’s evening post, I completed the Star of Jasmine.
And on Tuesday, I was halfway through the flying geese.
I finished the flying geese on Wednesday evening.
Thursday was knit night so did no quilting. On Friday, I finished putting the Flying Geese blocks together to make a long string of them.
I finished the evening by starting the pineapple blocks.
I know. They don’t look anything like pineapple blocks yet. I have to do 4 and they were going pretty quickly when I was working on them.
I did make it TomatoMania (which I mistakenly called Tomatania) Friday and picked up several tomato plants, a couple of peppers, an eggplant, basil, and strawberry plants.
I also (as planned) spent a lot of the day today (Saturday) out in the garden as it was a nice 70 degrees here in Southern California. It’s been in the 40’s at night the past few weeks so I haven’t wanted to plant anything but I think it’s starting to warm up. A little bit. I did as much as I could until I ran out of soil. I totally misjudged how much soil I would need. Rookie mistake. So now, tomorrow, I’ll need to run over to the nursery to pick up more soil for my containers.
And I got the batting prepped for the orange quilt top.
So tonight I will continue to work on my pineapple blocks. The plan is to finish them by tomorrow, Sunday and to create a new plan for next week. 🙂
Gosh, you’ve been busy! Your pieces for the cushion are coming along. I totally understand your frustration with having to stick with one project and not do a little work on other projects. I’m not always keen on that either! No planting here until late April into May, but Spring is here and we’ll be doing all of that soon!
Great quilt blocks. And I feel your frustration from working on one thing like you I have lots of projects going on and hate deadlines. Hopefully I will get my garden started soon.
