Oh Scrap! : So Far Behind!

 What is the saying?  "The Busier I am, the more Behind I feel!" (Or something to that effect.)

It was another busy week and I don't have a lot of things to share today.




I did finish four more blocks for my Mercyful quilt.  I also have about 6 more blocks cut out and just waiting to be sewn in green and blue.




Here is my progress so far.  I STILL haven't gotten out my purple scraps but I am sure I will be able to find lots of large scraps in that color for more blocks.

I did finish my last two blue placemat tops.  I am hoping to quilt them up today sometime.  I can then focus on making some in purple while the purple bin is out.

I am just juggling too many projects right now!


*********************************************

It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up: 

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do! 

Quilting is more fun than Housework

I was under the impression that Juggle is your middle name :-D I understand the "too many things" all the time syndrome. Yesterday I sent Paul on a mission to fetch me a chair so that I could sew all day. And now that I have a more comfy chair I will be sewing all day long :-D
Loving your blocks.

Beautiful blocks! I think we're all time-stressed, there's so much to do! But I've noticed that quilters are seldom bored. It will all get done eventually.

You have a fabulous group of blocks going there, Cynthia!!! Don't worry about purple--we're just barely halfway through July. There's still plenty of time.

I think feeling behind on all of your projects just makes you normal, like the rest of us! Love the greens of your Positivity blocks, and the scrappy backgrounds, too. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

I always heard it "the busier I am, the behinder I get."

I love your positivity quilt! It's going to be fabulous! I completely understand how you feel. The more I sew, the more I have to do. Then there's this housework stuff knocking on my door too!

Those Merciful blocks look even better with the additional blocks. You are truly amazing and such an inspiration to me. There are times that I feel like you too so you aren't alone. Looking forward to your next post. . . .!!!!!

Yeah, we're all juggling these days, aren't we? I'm starting to think that Chaos may be my new BFF...

Bernie Kringel said...

I get it. Life only gives us so many hours in the day. Use some of them to relax - at least a tiny bit. :-)

The blocks you've made, when paired with the ones you are going to add, will make a lovely quilt for a wonderful cause!
