Hi friends! I hope you're having a wonderful week! I made some progress with my blocks from Wishes Quilt Along. After my little boy was born in April I took a long time to adjust my routine again. You now I had my mom here for a long time and I got used to have a lot of things done (who wouldn't? haha). I miss her so much, just because she is my oldest friend I can count on her on everything I need... well, I should stop before I cry. ;-)
Anyway, it's also good to have the house, the kids and the hubby to take care all by myself again. It feels like a new start.
About the blocks, I liked them a lot, the process of making them, so easy cutting and piecing. The only thing that is bothering a bit is a tendency I've to choose old fabrics when starting new projects. I almost feel like the oldest daughter should always get married first! hahaha Do you understand me? So, I'm always putting on hold fabrics that I just added to my stash. Then, the vicious circle just keep going on, my new fabrics are just waiting in the bins to get older and to be used someday in the future...
Sigh... I just wish I could execute more of my projects in a near future then, I could get to enjoy more my stash.
Do you have this habit? Do you always have a project in mind when buying the latest fabric collection in the market? I'd love to know! But, keep reading I have another bad habit :-/
Besides I'm using old scraps, I've the worse habit of not measuring my fabrics to find whether I'm gonna have enough for the project. Really? Yes, it sounds like I love taking risks... and I really do. But, the result of it is not always fun. Notice my background... I just couldn't find the same light blue I started my blocks with. Now, I have this darker blue and I need to figure out how to get the best of the blocks distribuiting them nicely in my top when I've all the blocks for this quilt. Wish me luck! I'll keep you updated about this adventure ;-)
