--I decided yesterday after my post to make Oren's quilt a little harder on myself (WHY???) and do different stars. Right now I've got it laid out with 20 blocks and only a couple of repeats, but with changing up the fabrics, they should all look different...what do you think? I haven't cleared it with the boss man yet, but I don't think he'll care as long as it gets done.
|The fabrics will differ from what's on here, but I've never tried to figure out how to upload my fabrics into my EQ5...|
--I haven't felt too good over the last few days so I decided on a whim to curl my hair today after seeing a pin on pinterest about it. I'm sitting at my computer with hot rollers in...I'll let you know if it helps lift my mood.
--My race is in a MONTH!! AHHHHHHHH!!! I couldn't run at all yesterday due to shin splints (AGAIN!). I'm going to try and get new insoles this weekend while in Gainesville. I had planned on doing a full 13.1 mile practice run tomorrow but I don't know if I can with these shins. We'll see...
--I'm going to the post office today after having bee blocks ready to send out for 2 weeks. geesh. If they opened at 8 I'd probably go when I dropped the kids off in the morning but sitting in town for half an hour somehow seems like too much of a burden in the mornings.
--I pinned this recipe this morning and within 10 minutes more than 20 people had repinned it. Must have made the front page...they sure look good don't they? I kinda want to make them right now. Luckily I'm out of both pretzels and caramel bits.
--I get to pick the block next month in our traditional blocks meet modern fabrics bee That Stash Bee. I've got it narrowed down to a few choices but haven't decided for sure on block or color or purpose of making these blocks...
--I'm working on that secret block I mentioned a few weeks back today. It seems incredibly simple but involves printing onto fabric and surprisingly I've never done that. Fonts are a weakness for me, so it'll probably take me as long to choose fonts and print correctly as it will to construct the block... I am a sucker for a free font and have WAY TOO many on my computer. That's why I have a degree in (ag.) communication--words are important to me. ;)
Okay--I'll leave it there for today. I still need time to choose fonts, print, sew up these blocks AND take my hot rollers out and comb out the curls...
Thanks for stopping by and reading my silliness. :) And don't forget to head over to Cindy's to see everyone else's thoughts for the day and leave her a sweet message because she thinks she has the flu. :(
