One of Those Days

One of Those Days

Today is one of those restless days.  You know the kind. (Right? I’m not the only one?) It started out sunny, but now, the clouds have rolled in and at first glance, it seems to be snowing outside.  Since it’s in the low 70’s, it’s really just cottonwood trees doing their thing, causing allergies to flare and screens to get clogged up.  Ella’s allergic to cottonwood and is not amused.  I did a bit of this and a bit of that, but nothing that made me feel like I’ve accomplished much.

I finished a Quilt of Valor top yesterday (yay!), and now I need to figure out a back so I can start quilting.  Didn’t do that today.

I finished a little practice piece with paintstiks so now I’m only two weeks behind in my online class.

I have sixty 6-inch blocks for my small quilt group project.  I’ve been playing with arrangements on Electric Quilt 7 for a chunk of the afternoon and maybe I have a clue how I want to do this. Or not.

It’s now late afternoon and I’m thawing some hamburger although I have no idea how I’m going to make it into dinner.  Yes, THAT kind of a day.

You may now relax as the whining portion of this blog is over.

I finished the quilt I finally named “Nameless in Green.”  I painted my idea first, which is a new direction for me.  I like watercolors even though they’re pretty challenging sometimes.


Then I gave it a shot with fabric.


It’s more intense than I planned, but now I know better what I’m aiming for. Maybe a subtler fabric that doesn’t jump up and head slap me.

I am catching up in my Paintstiks class.  Here’s my latest:

Untitled 3

This is actually a lot of fun.  Messy, but fun.  I definitely want to make something out of this piece.  It’s pretty small, so maybe a bag.

The good news is that if I live to be 110, I’ll never run out of stuff to do.  There’s no bad news.  Good to know.

Quilt for fun.
