Lazy Days of Summer

I've been so lazy!  I'm not sure what my problem is but honestly, I have no motivation at all to do anything.  I did get about 20 loads of laundry done this weekend and that was no fun at all!  But the good news is that I'll have clean clothes to wear to work this week.  I'll be honest, it got pretty dicey at the end of last week.

Our guild is doing an applique block of the month this year.  It's going to be fun, I think.  It took me a month to figure out what style I was going to do it in.  I finally settled on an Art Deco feel.  I found some great clam shell fabric in teals and a great outer border with peach and teals. Pretty exciting stuff.  I'm pretty sure the patterns were from the 20's.

I did manage to get a Christmas block done.  Now that I'm looking at the corner detail, I realize I have a rogue thread to tuck in before I finish it up.  Eventually, I'm going to drape the tree with pearl garland.  I'll get to it, EVENTUALLY!  That's a reference to a kids show from the 90s.  There was a super hero family of procrastinators.  They were always going to get to it, EVENTUALLY!

Here's something else, I finally got around to doing!  I did this quilt top as a Super Bowl Mystery 2 years ago.  The top has been sitting in a pile of tops for 2 1/2 years.  I quilted a simple 1/4 inch on either side of the seam and it took no time at all to finish.  Why wait so long?  I can't tell you.
And, go me for finally figuring out how to make the pictures bigger in my iPad!


  1. I absolutely LOVE your BOM - the background is fantastic! Love the Christmas block, too - the frame is really unique. I'm not familiar with the pattern - are all of the blocks framed? Very cool. Glad to see you have had a victory with the iPad - I've had the opposite problem with mine (gigantic pics). So frustrating!

  2. Love your background fabric for the applique BOM. I'm having trouble narrowing down how I want to go with this project. I will get it figured out .... next month!
