Resting day.....

I made a feeble attempt to clean off the cutting table, but when I found this little stack of 1" wide strips I decided to play with them instead.  I didn't do much yesterday, paid bills, shopped for birdseed and groceries, knitted a bit.  Toward evening I decided to go out and start trimming my 2 forsythia bushes because brush pick up date is coming soon.  I chopped off lots of long branches since both bushes are really big.  I know I can cut them all the way down to 18" and they will come back fine.  Today I need to put away all of the quilts and quilt tops that I took to my program and to the workshop Saturday.  Then I can decide what I am working on next.

After several busy days of activity a down day or two usually are in order. Storming here so we will be inside. Chris

Good luck with all that putting away . . . that's harder work than many people realize!

Just like the 1" strings, moving one thing leads to another . . .

putting away all those quilts can be a little bit of work I bet. it will be too hot here to do outside work today - heat index 101! summer is here, glad I got the grass cut yesterday morning -

Glad to hear you "played"after so much hard work. What I would like to know is how you choose which 1"strip to join to the next one, picking them up randomly? Picking up the next one that looks good next to what you have already done? Sorting them out before you even start?

Isn't it fun to have a creative distraction????

I, too, find it great fun to find little bits. I just came back from a one-week class, and had a big of bits and pieces from my projects. So it was time for a little detour to make a tiny (9 x 12) strippy quilt from them.
Adult ADD, I guess.

Your energy is just about as much inspiration as your quilts! Blessings as you garden and sew.

I trimmed bushes and pulled briars yesterday. They fought back! I'm covered in scratches and I have a thorn in my finger. The shrubs do look nicer.

I am not sure you did much resting!

I'm always amazed at how much you achieve each month.

Thanks to you, I have been knitting a few dishcloths too recently. Quite nice to do in the evening in front of TV.
