So that was weird, no post on Monday. I had hoped I'd be over my need to whine about stuff but it turns out I'm not. So sorry in advance.
Honestly I really try to not complain about the heat but the last couple of days really have wiped me out. Yesterday I went to Target and it was exhausting. Target is being a good global citizen and not keeping their store at the frigid temperatures of the olden days but honestly it was so muggy inside it felt good to get out of the store.
To make matters worse, when I got back home wasps were swarming all round my driveway.. trying to get into the eaves. My neighbor Ron came out and we chatted and all I could think of was those stinken things and what would happen if one of us was stung. Later when I went out back to drizzle some water onto my poor fig tree there was a gigantic BLACK WIDOW spider by my hose.
Seriously, nature is trying to ruin everything this year.
I have been sewing together the blocks I partially assembled when I was hanging out with Nanette. Sunday I spent way more time ripping out than actually accomplishing. Do you baste your seams? I pin then machine baste then check my intersections. These low volume blocks hide my less than great matches at least. I was feeling pretty discouraged Sunday, but Monday I was back at it and things went a lot better. I'm not sure why. I'm not even going to press those until I have them all ready or until my mood improves.
I'm sure that the fact I haven't slept that well the past few days has brought me here to the whiney place. I already feel better just getting it out. Sorry you had to listen to it. Especially the people who dealt with all the horrible snow this winter. Snow.. it just seems like a magical dream to me.
Tell me what you're up to. OH! And if you're headed to the Minnesota Twin Cities area, head over to see Roseann at her shop, Rosebud's Cottage, in White Bear Lake. As you know Roseann and I are great pals and I created a little tote bag pattern for her to give away with the purchase of a Rosebud's Cottage license plate. You can read about it and see a picture here. What! You don' t know about the Row By Row Experience? Check out their site here. All the cool kids are doing it, you can too!
Ok, now that I've had my coffee with you guys I feel better already. Have a great day. xo
