SUNDAY was spent in the car. Hour after hour (after HOUR)!!! It's a LONG way from Florida back to North Carolina. We didn't get home until midnight. :o((
Back to work on MONDAY... an extra long split shift. (With my FIRST chiropractic appointment in between.) I found myself feeling a little out of sorts and looking forward to 5:30. I made sure to make it an EARLY night!!
By TUESDAY afternoon, I was ready to spend a little time in the studio. I started by cleaning up the rest of the GREEN and pulling out the bag of LIGHT BLUE that I collected as we were sewing DARK BLUE back in January.
I will, once again, be using a variety of BLUE fabric this month:
WEDNESDAY, before dinner, I actually SEWED... until I was too hungry to sew anymore! I got a good start on the beginnings of one Maverick Star Block:
And... you know it's time to stop for the night when...
... the 2.5 LIGHT BLUE String Blocks that you made look like THIS:
Can YOU spot the problem with that center block??? Looks like I lined up the WRONG line on the ruler when trimming this block down to size... Oops!!!
That's OK. I've already cut it into 4 to make the centers of some Maverick Stars. :o))
On THURSDAY, I worked a LONG day at one job and followed it up with working my evening job, too. Can you say TIRED??? That's what I was at day's end.
FRIDAY was a half day for work, followed by my 2nd ever chiropractic appointment. Today's visit was less traumatic than Monday's. Apparently, doing my "prescribed" stretches cuts down on the number of visits needed to correct "diagnosed" problems. :o))
When I got home, I spent a few minutes of quality time with my sewing machine. Here's what we accomplished... ONE Slab Block and ONE Tiny Nine:
And... Before dinner, I went back up to assemble ONE Maverick Star Block that I prepped earlier:
SATURDAY began WAY earlier that I would have liked, but after getting DS2 off to take his SAT Subject Tests, I finished up this post and joined the LINK Party over at So Scrappy blog. Be sure to click over to see what all of the other RSC Quilters have been working on during this first week of LIGHT BLUE. (Since I was up with the chicken this morning...) Look for me at link number FIVE (5) while you're there!
I'm heading up to the studio to start on a NEW project today, so my RSC sewing will be put on hold for the day. Don't worry! I'll get back to my Rainbow projects tomorrow.
Until next time...
