We have received almost 2 inches of rain and more is coming! We are hoping for another 3 inches (dreaming). So nice to have the rain as we head into Summer.
Here is my Heart for May 20.
I made up my mind this morning when I walked to start a new quilt, but ended up deciding to work on the flowers for Mountmellick.
I started preparing the nice little EPP 1/2” hexagons, only to realize after 3 hours of work that when I fussy cut them somehow I (ME?) screwed them up! There were 196 hexagons to make for the next border because I did not want to do anymore Broderie Purse! OK, trash can time!
I then had to make a decision to totally give up on this quilt, or put my big girl pants on and start over with the border. I have decided to continue on with this project. I am going to use some of the same fabric that is in the medallion to make at least 12 flowers (fussy cutting) and the remainder are already cut but they are not fussy cut hexagons (whew). I have 9 more hexagons to cut out.
Then I will try to continue on and make this quilt! I have no reason not to other than I want to start a new project and that is just stupid since I am trying to clean up my UFO’s.
I had a great day in spite of this issue, and my focusing is now back on track. I do believe that I made the error in cutting when I was not really feeling well! Lesson learned – do not work on an intense project when not feeling well!!!! Of course, in past posts I have repeated this over and over, guess I just did not listen to self!
OH you ask about the last 2 blocks of Section 5 of Stonefields – well they went to visit the trash along with the hexagons that were cut wrong! I have decided I will do something else as I start Section 6 later this year! (BUMMER). I do not know when I will learn that when I continue to not work on certain things that there is a reason! Obviously I made errors on both of these little things, just waited too long to figure it out!
We were expecting more rain this evening, but think it is breaking up. We are grateful for what we received!
Have a great week!
