I Am SO Bad Sometimes

I did get this top all sewn together last night, and I pulled this fabric for a possible border, but that is where I went off track.
I pulled out this project box with some free form block starts and lots of colorful scraps.
And those blocks started growing.
Next thing I knew, I had five more or less 10 inch blocks finished. It was just so much fun letting them grow as they pleased.
It's not as if I would have had to look far to find something to sew, I keep a box of 2 1/2" squares next to the machine for leader/enders. I've made a LOT of four-patches and nine-patches that way. But. I just wanted to play, and so I did.
I also pulled some turquoise fabrics for a quilt I have in mind. No clue yet what pattern, still marinating. But I wanted to have an idea of what was in the stash - quite a bit apparently. There may still need to be a tiny bit of stash enhancement though. Just saying.

I awoke to a sunny day and thanked God! Enough with the rain already. But, we did get more rain this afternoon.  It's beginning to feel a bit like a tropical jungle around here.  On the plus side, we have some of the biggest wild plums ever!

I hope you are finding some time to play and having a wonderful time!

Hugs and kisses,

Playing is so important. It feeds your soul, sets you free.

Great to see you playing. And they are productive distractions!

Playing, without the pressures of a specific project, can be liberating. Enjoy!

I totally understand. Aren't they fun. I can play all day with crumbs and skinny strings. Later sash them into quilts. Or blocks into hot pads. People love them, call them pieces of art!

That sounds like my type of playing - just a shame I have to go to work! I'm heading to America in September - perhaps I can play then.

Yay for stash enhancement!!! Looks like you're having a great time playing -- and such beautiful fabrics!!!
