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. 🙂
