I got up this morning and laid out the blocks on my design wall for that 2008 BOM I told you about in my last post. I love this quilt!!! I had to unsew some things because, guess what??? I didn't read the directions. I just went by the pictures mostly and I should not have done that with this quilt. I had to unsew two blocks as the directions said not to sew them together as they would be used for outside blocks...blah, blah, blah. The picture showed what the block would look like if it was a complete block. Ok, I'll give her that one. Anyway, I wasted a little time by not reading the directions but everything is as it should be now. The quilt is on my design wall and I have been working on putting the rows together today. I have stopped a few times for various reasons. I cleaned house a little and my MIL came over today and we planted two rows of potatoes. I also put a rosemary plant and a miniature rose bush into the ground that my sweet husband gave me for Valentine's Day. I'm not sure the rosemary plant will make it. It was pretty dry. I got it before Christmas and wanted to plant it but then the snow came and I didn't want to plant until warmer weather. Today is a beautiful, sunny day of 72 degrees. You heard me right, 72 degrees! Last week we had to have our coats and scarves, this week is flip flops and shorts. You've heard about the Texas weather, right? It's true....Anyway, my potatoes are in the ground, next comes squash, okra, tomatoes and radishes. I have to check and see when it's ok to plant these first. My soil is ready but I have to wait until it's time. I'll show you my garden when it gets pretty. Ok, everything is up to date now and I can go back to sewing. I already did something Bonnie said not to do. She said don't spend too much time in front of the computer. If you stay too long at the computer, you are not at the sewing machine....she's right but I have to document everything too. I haven't even had time to read blogs this week so please forgive me. I'll play catch up tomorrow and work on my CW too...
BTW, I broke down yesterday and bought me an Accuquilt Go Cutter. I bought the Hexagon templates too. I watched the DVD that comes with it. That was why I didn't go to Sit and Sew last night. I sat down and watched the DVD then I didn't want to get up from my chair. I haven't even played with the Go yet but next week will be better for me. I have no meetings next week except for tatting and Weight Watchers. I'll be sewing every night!!! So, have a great weekend and go sew!
