It's Friday!
(have you missed me?)

Come back later to see my 'sale' items - my camera batteries died - sigh!
Still no sewing or quilting going on here - the quilting mojo has seriously left the building! I did manage to completely finish my Blossom quilt. It's quilted and the binding has been sewn to the front of the quilt BUT about half way through the actual quilting process I realized that I'm definitely in a quilting whirlpool. I was making swirls on the quilt - this was not my intention! Big Sigh!!! I continued because the last thing I feel like doing is ripping out quilting - UGH!!! I knew then that it was time to step away from my machine and take a respite. LOL

I have managed to finish three more Truly Scrumptious blocks. Seven down; two to go! :-)

Here's Tilly tending her garden. Miss Delish reminding us to 'be kind to yourself' - how often we do forget to do that!
And, Miss T Tipsy inviting you to join us for a cup of tea - I'd love it if you would. :-)

I appreciate that you've popped in to visit with me - please come again soon! And, if you find my quilting mojo would you please send it to me!

In Friendship!

Libby said...

You never know what project will hold your mojo - just dig around until you find it . . . . sort of like a scavenger hunt *S*

Pam Marshall said...

You do the tea I'll do the coffee.
Blocks are great as usual.
Like you my sewing left for higher ground.
If anyone finds it, please return.

I love those blocks. They are so cute.
I too had to leave my machine yesterday. My quilting was looking like...I don't know what. At least swirls and whirpools are pretty lol.
I stopped quilting for almost a year. So no stones coming from here. It's a hobby, not a job. If it isn't there, do something else. It's supossed to be fun.

O.k. big sis you're making me smile...so three stitcheries done and a quilt quilted and binding sewn on is what you consider not doing any sewing??!? I love those ladies sooo much, I can hardly wait until you send them to me...that is what they're for right? For your lil sis? Your mojo will be back before you know it, really :)

Sending quilting mojo airmail, special delivery.

Those blocks are wonderful, Darlene. Tell Miss Tipsy that I'm sipping some tea as I type this, so bottom's up!

Allie said...

Darn quilting mojo, getting up and walking off. Mojos are fickle like that. If I see it, I'll send it home.

I love your blocks. Love them. The designs, the pattern, the colors. Excellent job!

Janet said...

Your blocks are looking great and you are achieving. I think your sewing mojo is looking for something new and exciting.

Quilterbee said...

Your stitchery are made into blocks for a quilt so I'd say your mojo is still there. Keep up the work, your blocks are really cute.

Robin aka Bookquilter said...

I hope you find your Mojo soon but until then take good care of yourself!!!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

I'm always always impressed with your stitching.
