This weekend was very difficult for me. I was super depressed. I kept pacing the house feeling like something was wrong. My anxiety was high and I was exhausted. This is why I don’t like fall. I love the color changes and the smell, but not the winter blues. I even tried quilting on Saturday and then cut a few things too small pulled out a bunch of pieces and spent 1 hour with nothing achieved. This didn’t help me. SO I just slept… and slept… and slept some more. I did get myself to work on my EPP a bit. I almost have the star row around my rosette complete. I’m a little further than this picture shows. I’m loving these colors together!
Then today I decided at 7:30am I needed to stop sleeping and needed to actually get something done to get out of this slump. So I took a shower, ate breakfast and went up to my quilt room. AND I ACCOMPLISHED THINGS! YAY! Now I feel 100x better. I even made fajitas for dinner!
The Splendid Sampler blocks I completed!
Block 71 – First Stitch by Kerry Green: I did a completely different color combination that was just calling out to me.
Block 70 – Bows by Jane Davidson: I used up the last of my background on this one. Luckily it is super busy because I had a piece a few pieces together to have enough to finish the block.
Block 69 – Full Circle by Holly DeGroot: This one took me the longest to piece. I feel like I am looking out a submarine window for some reason.
Block 64 – Rising Star by Kathy Brown
Bonus Block – October Pumpkin by Pat Sloan
The I did my October Aurifil Designer of the Month block.
Chip off the Old Block by Kathy Brown: I was happy to have large squares to use this beautiful blue fabric in.
Here are all my blocks for this year thus far:
It is amazing how as you add in more blocks they start all working together. There was a few I was worried about before since they are all random scraps, but they are all starting to fit in. I think I will be using medium to dark grey for the sashing. I am hoping that will help bring the black into it. We will see.
Then my phone saw this beautiful view and I just had to take a picture! Splendid Sampler blocks on the design wall with Marcia Derse fabrics and Aurifil Designer of the month blocks on the floor. My idea of a sexy room!
Tomorrow, back to work. The drywallers are starting to work on our basement tomorrow so *fingers crossed* by Christmas my quilting stuff and I will be in the daylight basement!
