I guess I'm just falling behind in everything I'm doing. I have quilts that are half done, 153 bog post to read, dishes that I've let set for three days (that task is now done), house that needs cleaned, books to take back to the library and binding to put on a quilt. How did I let that happen? It seems my list is just getting longer and longer these days. I never feel like doing these items once I get home from work. Perhaps I should get off my lazy ass and get these things done, but it's the lazy days of summer.
Pat Sloan blogged about a quilt that the Blackbird girls Alma and Barb are doing and I just love it, but I can't start another project now until I get a few of my own done. Isn't it just so darn cute!! It looks really easy to do if you like half square triangles. Which I do. It's even made with a jelly roll. I have a few of these laying around. I bet you do too. How fun is that? Check out their blog for the directions.
I got my copies of Love of Quilting and Quilter's Would magazine in the mail a few weeks ago and I've been looking them over. Not really seen anything that I want to make. Did anyone else noticed that right in the middle of the magazine is a catalog of woman's clothing? I'm not really sure how I feel about this. Not sure it's the right place to advertise this type of stuff. I think the magazine needs to be all quilting related. I guess I don't like this idea because I'm not a woman. There is one plus side to this and that is there are no bra and panties in the ads. Ya most men might like this, but me, not so much. Maybe with the downturn of the economy they need any advertising they can get and once things start to turn around maybe we won't be seeing this type of advertising. I for one sure hope we don't, but that's just my two cents.
I should wrap this up and maybe move on to a quilting project. I have some curtains that I want to get done. The blocks are finished and I just need to piece them all together and make some hang tabs. Sounds easy enough, but I'm sure it'll take me a few more weeks with the way I'm procrastinating.
