Any who. I've tried to stay productive but I'm just really distracted. I do better with deadlines. We had our guild meeting so, I knew I had to get some stuff done by Tuesday and that helped me focus.
The guild block of the month is almost over. This was from November. I was a little nervous to do a dark flower because there is no dark, or purple for that matter, in my companion fabrics for this project. I think it's pretty. It's bright enough that it doesn't look completely out of place.
The fairy blocks are where the applique blocks go. The squares in squares will be light green and a floral. The brown blocks are going to be a clam shell print and the outer border will be the floral again. Trust me, it's going to be great.
My bench was covered in solid black. It just wasn't working. Luckily, Jackmans's had their sale and I was able to re-upholster it for $15. I'm considering pillows but they never get any respect at our house. They end up on the ground and covered in dog hair.
I couldn't let this go to waste because it's also beautiful. Turns out that it's the perfect compliment to my grandmother's peony painting. So, I was right. I was just in the wrong room. BTW, this is the dining room.
So, our guild is doing a UFO challenge that could potentially involve me winning money. I know, pretty exciting. So, there's another motive for me to get my act together and finish my many projects!
I'll keep you posted!
