Playing Catch Up

Such a dreary, rainy day here in KC.   Good for the soil, not so good for the soul.    Gloomy weather does make for good sewing time, though.    I am all caught up on the Farmers Market BOMs.   The photo looks kinda washed out--I think it is much brighter in "real life" but it's hard to get a good pic inside.

Now I can get back to my Civil War Diary blocks.   I am having a tussle with myself though.   I started out gallantly hand-piecing them and consequently, have not completed very many!!!!    I am thinking of wimping out and machine-stitching the rest.   It would be nice, though, to have that handwork to take out on the deck and sew.   Yes, I do believe nice weather will appear again someday; I am an optimist  LOL!   The other thing weighing on my mind is the amount of items I DO NOT have sewn for the June guild quilt show.   Need to come up with a mini or a baby quilt for the charity silent auction and a few things for the quilters' boutique.   No rest for the wicked, as Mom used to say!

That is such a neat pattern! You are being good and keeping up :o) I also have some must do sewing for June, and it is so hard to bring myself to do it. I hate working on a deadline.

Your Farmer's Market is looking great! I am waaaaayyy behind on this quilt. I have the first 2 blocks fused but not sewn and that's it. I better catch up before May's block LOL!

I am faithfully printing out the patterns. That is about all I can say.
Your project is coming along nicely.

Please be sure and post the date for your quilt show -- I went last year and it was a great show. I don't want to miss it.

What a fun quilt of all things we think of summer, veggies, herbs and canning for the winter. This quilt is awesome.

I hope you get some sun soon. They are calling for rain the next couple of days here too.
