This week (so far) my fingers have been working over-time on many things.
One and a half days were spent piecing stitchery blocks into completed projects...
...and taking a gazillion photos of those projects.
Then there was a full day and a half glued to my desk writing patterns, which would have been sooooooo much easier with chocolate but I had none - note to self: "train Bob-the-dog to carry shopping list to corner store for cocoa laden essentials as soon as possible"...
...and did I mention the fight I had with fabric when I was cutting out eight of these "Gorjuss" panels?
They have been printed on the fabric slightly off-centre so they won't sit square because of the bias.
I was a bit growly over this last night, but then I took a deep breath, prayed for Divine assistance, and kept my thoughts focused on Blossom as this will be her 21st birthday quilt and should be oozing with love in every step of the process.
Love really does make difficult things a bit easier, you know.
So with the first three days of my week done and dusted here I sit on Thursday morning planning the day ahead.
I shall piece the Gorjuss quilt top...
...and prepare "at the heart of it all" for hand quilting.
Time will be spent dreaming how I can make use of the 1940's vintage lace I recently purchased and which arrived in the mail yesterday to my shrieks of delight ...
...and when all the days chores are done and the moon has risen over our home, I shall wrap myself in the beautiful pj's which Blossom gave me on Sunday....
...and snuggle under the covers to start a new book.
I might even have some chocolate by then.
I thought I'd best update you on our dear Bob-the-dog after his recent illness and emergency dash to the vet.
He had a burst abscess in an anal gland and was quite unwell for a bit, but he's back to his bright and bouncy self again now and asked me to say 'thank you' for all your concern and well-wishes.
I hope your day is marvellous!
(it could be even better with chocolate, of course....)
