Pin It Life is full at the moment... Full of good things. I took my 3 boys on a date to the ice cream shop this afternoon. They love nothing more than ice cream for lunch on Wednesday Hump Day. Nevermind that I sneak in a waffle cone of chocolate-peanut butter too.
The littlest one had his first birthday on Sunday.
We are remodeling parts of our new house.
Basketball practice. Homework.
We've all been there.
So this busy bee has been working on smaller projects (like lanyards and mini clutches) while simultaneously avoiding this quilt. The red, aqua and navy one. I've also been working on other projects, ones which I cannot share, and are therefore zero fun to blog about. But this one, I almost feel embarrassed to share an update on since I feel like I've been giving WIP updates on it for too long.
But did you know that sometimes procrastination can lead to a giant whale-sized light bulb? Ding! I was making these blocks from this book
with no real plan. My stalling has actually proved beneficial now. I know what I am going to do with them, and I've only one block left to make.
Which is a good thing, since I am at the end of my rope with paper piecing. See me and paper piecing have a love-hate relationship.
Hopefully, I'll have a quilt top to show next week. But I also might get sucked into watching more Walking Dead with the hubby. At least removing the paper off the back of these blocks gives me something to look at when the zombies come out...
