Yes, I will be the first to admit that some of my recent posts really haven’t been geared toward happiness. Well, at least not as much as I would like them to be. Sorry about that. It’s been a crazy week around here and it’s about to get crazier. In a few short hours, I’m hopping on a plane to Detroit and then flying back on Monday. Crazy, right? It’s a fun trip, though! I’m excited and will share more about it next week. If you pay attention to Facebook and Twitter for the next few days, you may be able to figure out why I’m going. 


Anyway, I’m making some progress on my quilt. I have all of the half-square triangles pieced together. Now I need to trim them all to size. Unfortunately, I’m really not looking forward to this process. It’s going to be rather tedious and time-consuming. It also needs to be done with care so that the points in the quilt will line up once I start putting the rows together. My mom volunteered to help, and I will probably take her up on the offer! Dinner followed by trimming squares and watching a movie? Sounds good to me!


Enjoy your Sunday, everyone!

    That quilt is going to be gorgeous! I just love those colors. Yay for getting Mom to help! That will make the quilt even more special and the tedious work less of a dreaded chore.
    Kudos to you for all you do to inspire. Looking forward to hear about this Detroit adventure. Happy Sunday to you too!

    Michael, when I get to a tedious part of a chore it’s easier to make a game of it. I would take all the pieces that have my first favorite color in them, make a pile and trim them out. THen I’d choose another color that’s left, etc. Keeps your mind occupied thinking how nice it is to have this color, that color in the quilt and before you know it, they’re all trimmed! Hand sewing a binding? Can I do one side before this tv show is over? How many episodes of NCIS to bind the whole quilt?
    Detroit? Hmmmmm….have a good trip.
    ps: your quilt is going to be fun!!!

    Sounds like a lovely Sunday afternoon to me! Can’t wait to see your quilt!

    Oh I can’t wait to see how yours turns out! I made a zig zag quilt not too long ago (my first ever) and you definitely get overwhelmed piecing it all together and thinking about lining it all up. Quilting is like painting on a piece of canvas… all the little mistakes (that only you see) become the charm of the quilt! Everyone you do is gorgeous.. can’t wait to see the quilt!

    The quilt will be worth it in the end. When any friend or guest comes by and says, “OMG, I love that!” you’ll be able to say, “thank you, I made it!.” =0)
