Wonky Stars

I had these grand plans of having a finished quilt by the time I made this post but the mojo gremlins have struck again 😦

I do at least have a finished top & back and I made franken-batting for it…its all still hanging on my design wall waiting to be basted.

The back is made from a FQ bundle in my stash… you can see the batting on the left laying over the top.

And that’s where its been for the last week…what’s even more frustrating is I’ve been off work all week!!! I have a lot of PTO and I needed to use some of it so I took off, but all I did was sit around watching tennis and other sports… UGH what a waste 😦

That’s about all for now…have a great rest of your weekend! 🙂

Mojo oh mojo…where did you go?

I’m not sure if it’s the time change or the weather change or something else altogether but I just can’t seem to find my running mojo. I haven’t run since Oct 31 when I put in a hard fought 3 miles – it wasn’t so hard from a physical perspective as it was the mental perspective. The whole time I was running I was cursing myself for not being more consistent and fighting back the gremlins that kept telling me it was ok to stop at 1 or 2 miles. Ugh…why does my brain do this?

Every day since then I’ve been trying to pep-talk myself into a run but it just hasn’t worked…the gremlins have won. About two weeks ago I re-joined Weight Watchers, after a 3 year hiatus, and I’ve been making better food choices but I haven’t fully committed to that either. I’ve been trying to focus on “why” I want to lose weight and be more active but that hasn’t resulted in finding my mojo. Any suggestions would be appreciated 🙂


On a brighter note, I’ve been getting caught up on some of my sewing/quilting projects. I finished and mailed the Christmas Tree table runner and I’ve gotten caught up on the HST Sampler QAL from Amanda at 3and3quaters. There are nine blocks planned in the series…here are my first 6:







I chose to use a Michael Miller layer cake called “Happy Dots” and I really love how fun and pretty the fabrics are…the only issue is I don’t have enough of each color/print to make some of the blocks because there were only a few duplicates in the stack. I’m going to have to check my stash for some other dot fabric, if I don’t have any I guess I’ll just have to buy more!!

That’s about all for now…as I said above, if you have any suggestions to spark my running mojo I’d LOVE to hear it.
