Sew……Back To BOM Rehab!

 BOMrehab175 Yup, going back to Sinta’s BOM rehab.  I made an attempt last week, but was a bit confused….well, it gave Sinta a chuckle I am sure.  Seems you actually need to make something to go to rehab, not just sign in :)!!!!    Yesterday I got busy!!!   I love the mosaic593acbff4df51de3148f4d09295287a351f68ef9Christmas  Favorites quilt by Nancy Halvorsen,  and I have all the BOM waiting, so that’s what I am going to work on.  The Poinsettia block is done, and the 3-D petals will be attached after quilting.  Fabrics are cut for two more blocks and I will work on them this week,  so I’m on my way.  Now to stay motivated!!!

I wrote Darlene after Xmas I was feeling like a big blob.  Seems like she was feeling blobby too…..we were thinking our MOJO’s were off some where together, but boy she got some motivation to work on a cute pattern…peek here!!!   I figured maybe working on a couple small things would snap me out of it.  I haven’t made The Dots pillowcases in a while and saw this cute glow in the dark famosaice26b4254da5f5801419039a9e7cbcb0552308f77bric, so I whipped up a couple pillowcases.  The stars and moons really do glow in the dark, so fun.    Then there was an after Christmas breakfast with my good friends 004Metta and Jan…..using Miss Rosie’s Morsels pattern, these pincushions were fun  to whip up for my two dear friends.  Using the printer made the label making super easy.

I got the urge to go through my sewing closet…..UGH, where to begin.  Right off the bat I ran acr015oss these rail blocks.  They were from a block exchange I did with a bunch of gals on Prodigy, probably about 15 years ago.  Wow, they would be perfect for a Quilts Of Valor qu018ilt, so that’s what I worked on last Wednesday night at sewing.  They went together super fast and before I knew it the top was done.

So I guess my blobbyness isn’t quite as bad as I thought.  I even have a top secret Valentine project I’m working on.  Here’s a sneaky peek011 ,,,,,

Such happy fabrics!!!  Smiles to you all.

Oh my 'blobby' friend stop fretting - just relax the MOJO will return soon. I'm still a blob - haven't accomplished one thing since the two mini quilts last week. LOL

You have accomplished more than you realize - it's all good!

If you have accomplished all this while feeling like a blob, I can only imagine what will get done when your mojo returns! Cute pillow cases, and love the valentine fabric!

You were working so hard on all of your projects last year and made so many wonderful things... maybe it was a slower month for you... but look at all you did!!! AND you are getting all of your ducks in a row for NH Christmas too! You rock.

The quilt top came together well. I can only imagine what my cupboard will be like in about 15 years time. I have only been quilting for 2 years. I love the look of your Valentine's fabrics.
