Today I want to blog

There are a bazillion things I SHOULD be doing today -
Ironing hubby's shirts:

Cleaning the boys room . . . (really! who would want to even go in there!?! gross, I can't believe I am posting these ):

. . . dusting blinds, preparing dinner, mopping the floor, wiping out the fridge. . . . you get the picture. But today I wanted to sew and quilt and blog. It has been SOOO long since I have done any of those and this:

has been crying out to me so I grabbed some scraps of fabrics that I think look great together and started stitching away. I love the crooked block quilting that I have seen so much of lately. I don't really know how to do it but it can't be that hard right? I cut up some strips of various widths and cut some at a slight angle. Working in a log cabin design I started peicing them together and then when they get big enough I'll square them into a 6"ish square.
Is there a rule somewhere that says you have to finish a quilt in progress before you start on a new one? I hope not. I still have one in the hand quilting phase sitting in a basket by the couch. It is my movie/tv project.

The colors aren't showing up on my blog as vibrant as they are in photoshop. . . hmm. Need to figure out what's wrong. I guess the ironing will have to wait yet some more.

What a cute crooked log cabin pattern. I love the fabric choices. I need to be making something for a certain someone . . . I just need an idea.

Oh and I have lots of days I don't want to do the things that need to be done (dishes, dinner, cleaning). I'm glad you took a break for you.

That will make a beautiful quilt! Great color combos. :) I can always find a reason to sew instead of iron. Besides, that is hubby's job to iron his shirts!

I don't iron my husband's shirts, he wouldn't let me, so I'm happy for that freedom.
Love the colors of the started quilt blocks, I see them and want to do more of my own.
