This week..........

It's been an interesting week. If you had asked me just how much I get done each week (sewing or otherwise) I would have answered very little. This week I have discovered that is just not true. My back caused me to rest this week and I truly got very little done! Apart from the easter egg decoration from earlier in the week, this is the sum total of my efforts this week.

Block one from Leanne Beasely's Butterfly Garden. It is just together in it's roughest form. I still have applique and embroidery to do on it.

I know, I know! Why am I starting another project? I guess most of you know that I joined Peg and Kris' finishing group OPAM (One Project a Month) and have done very little finishing! I think I probably should have joined a starting group, because I just seem to be just brilliant at that! I guess I just get itchy feet. Or bored. Or I need distracting. Something! In fact I will be starting something else again tomorrow as I'm off to a class at the Patchwork Apple. There's no stopping some of us! It will be fun to go to the patchapple tomorrow cause the lovely Jane has just become a grandmother. Much excitement! You can check out her beautiful new granddaughter by clicking on the link to her blog.

This is just something else I started recently. An easter dress for my own granddaughter. (Must finish it! I heard easter is next week!) She is a month old now. Boy, does time fly! Hope you have a great weekend, and make sure you start something new for me!

That quilt you have started is so cute! I jump around a lot on projects too - I don't stay focused on any one project long. I hope you are feeling better - you must be if you are off to a class this weekend.

Welcome to the Butterfly garden club. I am doing this on too and do understand completely why you couldn't resist ;-)
