It's so true that the holidays makes you lose track of the days. All day yesterday it felt like Sunday to me. Now that it's actually Sunday, I feel like I have a bonus day to the weekend :)
....and I needed the extra day....to complete my One Monthly Goal.
I dragged my feet on this one, it seems. I don't know that I'm terribly happy with my fabric choices....but I'm happy that it's done!
My goal was to finish Block #4 in my Queen's Garden....
It seems to be a bit dark and boring to me...but it looks fine hidden amongst the rest of the flowers in the garden, I think...
Yesterday, as I was getting caught up on my Border Creek Mystery, I realised that I was just aching to work with some COLOUR!!!
This was as I was doing the tedious job of trimming-up. (Which I usually avoid by utilizing other methods, but this quilt is a mystery so I followed directions.)
....a lovely, messy pile of colour!
This had me digging into a box containing a project destined for the future....but I had to play with just one block to get my colour-fix in!
There's always something so special about the very beginning of a quilt, don't you think???
I was able to get a few stitches into the colourful fabrics and it made me feel much better. Funny, isn't it, how that works?
I'm supposed to meet my friend for a nice, long run in Port Dover this morning.....but I did not expect to wake up to a snowy morning! Oh well, I'll get ready and see how it is in a bit.
Sometimes it's difficult to push myself out on these grey Winter days but one thing I do know....once I get out and do it, I never regret it!
I am linking up with Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching, and with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal - December finish.
My goals for today....get a run in, do a bit more stitching, watch last night's episode of Outlander (which should be amazing!!!).
