Where has the time gone?????




I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since my last post. Unfortunately, I don't have that much to show for it. I have a lot of things prepped, but that is about it.

I did manage to get in last weeks Nearly Insane block, which is pictured above. I still haven't done the week before that. It has a bazillion Y seams!! I decided I am not going to stress over it and just replace the block with another. :)

I took a class at the Orange Quilt Bee yesterday. It was called Whimsy Cats. I was able to learn the Buggy Barn technique of cutting, swapping and sewing back together. Thank goodness for the class and the excellent teacher. I would have never done this on my own without un-sewing every piece. I was able to get 2 cats almost done. All I have to do is add whiskers and eyes.



Hopefully I will be more productive soon!

I hope you all have a healthy, happy, safe week.

Love the blocks Yvette. I think everyone is kinda behind right now. That change of seasons really gets everyone doing other things than sewing :0)

Wishing you a (hopefully short) week of smooth commutes and a less hectic patient load!!

I'm so with you on the whole where has the time gone thing! Oh my gosh. I can't even believe it is already September (let alone mid-September!). Crazy!

Cindy said...

LOL, I'm glad you haven't posted in two weeks because hubby and I have been gone. We RVed up to Yellowstone and I'm catching up on blogs.

Oh, Yvette, these two blocks are eye-catchers! I can see doing many things with just these two blocks!

Please have patience with me as I continue my "catch-up". I've missed all my blogging buddies so much.

are you seriously making two of each NI block? that is truly insane! I love your red & white colors -- I made mine all different... I've also done the Buggy Barn kitties-- such a cute pattern.
