I've lost my blogging mojo

Had to write this post today so I could have at least ONE post in July.

I've been in a bit of a funk lately....little black cloud floating over my head. I'm really over going to Victor every weekend and feel like I'm constantly playing 'catch-up' through the week, and there have been a few little things that have happened recently that have bothered me waaay more than they should have. I do recognise this though, am aware that I'm over-reacting, so have just been riding it out. Hopefully will be back to normal transmission soon.

On the quilting scene, I've finished 48 blocks for another string quilt - love using up scraps but still have so much more to use! I pulled apart the music quilt that I had sewn together.....couldn't get the top to square up and it was absolutely doing my head in! Then I read this post and decided to undo all the strips and start again, alternating which end I started stitching from and using my walking foot. I haven't quite finished putting it all back together again (I was so disheartened I made the scrappy string blocks instead) so it will be interesting to see if it makes any difference.

Next on the agenda is a baby quilt for my cousin, and then these Swoon blocks that Theresa has inspired me to try.

So I'll leave you with this shot of my favourite room in the house at Victor....can't wait to actually have the time to curl up here and read a good book....
