Through the sewing room door....

Please excuse camera smudge.

This is the door to my sewing room.  I have NOT opened it since returning from Salinas.  And I reason why is because I don't want to work on any of those projects!   I'm just not in the mood for sewing.  Have you ever been that way?

I've been thinking maybe making a skirt for my granddaughter would get me in the mood.  I'll have to think about that one a little bit... no that didn't get me excited either.  LOL!!

But something gotta give and soon because I have some plants in there that I need to water.

Remember those CGQC goals - well one of them was to read EMMA with my family.  Well we are all finally have the book and have a reading schedule, 10 chapters per week.
To be honest with you I'm not enjoying that much.  I did just finish a very fast paced exciting book, so that might be part of it.  Of our family 2 do not like it, and 3 are enjoying it.  Maybe I just need to read a couple more chapters to really get into it.

And my good new is....drum roll please.. you will be so impressed with this.  Okay, maybe not but I'm sure pleased that I finished:  VAL LAIRD'S LOVE BOM!!!  ((clap, clap clap))  Thank you, Thank you.

You can't really see but I sewed little white beads around the vine and pink beads on the hearts.  I did really enjoy doing this block.

Okay enough about me - tell me about you.

  2. A friend I work with has been trying to get me to join her book club. But not sure I want to read for fun on a schedule.
    And what if I hate the book? Too much pressure :) :)

    LOVE that LOVE BOM. I have been saving the blocks for "later". :)

  3. You made me laugh about the sewing room door and the plants. I get that way sometimes too.

    Let me know if the book gets better.

  4. Your BOM looks great! I didn't "love" Emma either. I really, really wanted to but I just didn't.

  5. Your BOM block looks great...I have to admit that I thought Emma was a very, very slow read.
