Two steps forward, one step back

Websampler2Wow - it's been a week since I last blogged!  I should have a lot of progress to show for my week, but no, I don't, really.   I didn't get a lot of sewing done over the long holiday weekend, so I'm a little grumpy for not having spent much quality time in my sewing room.  I did finish these 3 Web Sampler blocks, so based on my last blog post, I should only have one left, right?  Well, in theory.  But, the setting I'm using requires 13 blocks, so that one on the right in the photo is my extra block.  I also decided to re-make one of my earlier blocks.  When I first started this sampler, I was planning to use 2 different background fabrics.  I guess I forgot that I planned to do that, and all of the blocks except one have used the same background.  The odd-ball block looks out of place because the background was quite a bit lighter than these Civil War Classics fabrics, so what's a Type A quilter to do, but remake the odd-ball?  So 8 + 3 -1 equals 10 and that means I still have 3 blocks remaining to finish the sampler.  Oh and a fafillion sashing blocks.  Best get started on those as well.....

  2. At least you know where your blocks are!

  3. Dear Type A Quilter,
    You know what to do if you get too grumpy with your work. I'm sure I don't need to tell you. But I'll remind you just in case. Simply mail the blocks to YOU KNOW WHERE!
    No Shame! I simply have no shame!

  4. You will get it finished someday. That's what I keep telling myself, lol.
