I'll have to keep this post brief -- which is difficult to do, because I am bursting with ideas and the desire to make things, even with so much on my plate. Boo hoo.
Enough whining; on with it!
I got some treats in the mail. First, I returned home to find my order from paperpieces.com
-- which promises to facilitate the production of many more hexies for the Hexalong. I just need to figure out where to take things in the next round of hexagon making!!
I played with the arrangement of the current lot -- just for the sake of picture-taking-- and I don't yet have things quite where I want them (not even close). I need to stare at these photos for a while before taking action.
Sorry about the toes; space was limited :)
My Loulouthi hexies make me swoon -- sometimes in a good way (the fabrics are so lush and beautiful, aren't they? Isn't it perfect for the candied hexagon project?) and sometimes in a not-so-good-way (why didn't I choose an easy, subtle palette for this quilt? What was I thinking?!). Oh well. I'll work it out, but I might need to take a break from all this wild beauty; I could go "down home" and whip up some more of my Farmer's Wife blocks. Yup. I think I'll do that...as soon as I have time. Boo hoo.
In other postal news: I also received the gorgeous scrap bag from Sew Fresh Fabrics -- which I won over at Lily's Quilts. Yay!
There are so many little treasures in this bag...it makes me want to sew something new...but, alas, I cannot do so right now. Boo hoo. (Here we go again!)
Stop sniveling, Prof. S., and just appreciate your good fortune. Look at all these beauties.
If only I had more time....I wish I could focus on the book manuscript every day AND go to crafty day camp AND clean my office AND do FMQing on my mom's quilt (I haven't even shown you that one yet!) AND get the undergrad documents in order AND make Farmer's Wife blocks AND experiment with making exotic popsicles (!) AND crack the nut that is my hexie quilt...AND start about 50 new projects. Hmmm. I think I'll have to settle for getting some writing done and playing with fabric for just a little while each day. If I can do both of those things AND keep my family happy, then I think I'm in good shape.
Still, I can't help wishing for just a few more hours in every day. What would you do with more time?
