Time passes ... so much to do !

Well, at the moment I am working on many things ... I got many projects ... and not only that: my fiance has left me in charge of his tomato & chili-plants while he is 2 weeks on his oil-rig! ... this is nerve-wrecking!!!
I do not possess "green-fingers" - so I am continously studying them:  - too much water, too little ? - too much sun, too little ?. My goal: just keeping them alive until he gets back home.
The tomato plants reside in our bedroom, and the chili-plants in the bathroom:

So far ... they live ! :-D

I am also working on the huge quilt, where a showed you a bit last time. I finished the top - and I had to bring everything to my "mother in law" - in order to find a space big enough to put together the top, lining and bottom ! ... She has a great big livingroom, and it was nice to have a pair of extra hands as well:
I have now started to quilt it by hand ...

And a project I worked on this week-end ... our wedding invitations:

Loving every minute of it .... :-D

So ... a lot to do ... so little time ... I never get bored!!!! ;-)

A new WIP (work in progress)

I couldn't help myself - I had to start on this new project! :-D
I found the recipe/instructions on the Moda Bake Shop - and I had purchased the fabric already last year ... this week-end was the time to start. My fingers have been itching for a LONG time to get started!
Yesterday I sorted out the jelly-rolls, and started cutting ... today I started to make the blocks:
Here the red/cream blocks - 10 in total.
and here I started on the grey/cream blocks:
Need to make 10 of those as well - and then "only" missing the blue/cream blocks.

So - I have 15 small blocks ready - so "only" 21 small blocks still to go - and then assembly them to bigger blocks, etc ... final result should be a beautiful quilt!

Well, I still have lots of other projects not yet finished ... some slow WIP's (works in progress), and definitely some UFO's (unfinished projects) - but the joy of starting something new, makes me forget all the other stuff I am working on. Well, I get back to those ... at some point!  ;-)

Until next time .....
