Feeding the monkey ...

Do you ever get that feeling that you just have too much to do, and too little time to do it?  Hmm, me too, especially just lately, I have started way too much and finished way too little. 

So this weekend I tried doing a little 'ketchup'...

After a little work down on the allotment, we picked 1.5Kg of these...


which then turned into another batch of jam, mmm, delicious!

I got the borders put on to the 'It's a Hoot Bricks quilt'...

and it's now loaded up on the frame and quilting has commence!

I finished the pieced borders on my Arcadia Hexagon Park quilt...


... loving this quilt top already!

And pieced the Brit Bee blocks for Miss June!


But I can't show you any more than this, cos it's in da rules!

So I pieced this block for Sue of the Many Jeans group...


so after all that, the monkey was a little happier, and me?  I tackled some of the ironing mountain that seems to have sprung up.  (just how do two people create so much ironing is beyond me!)

I even have a finish for you!  But that's for a whole other post!

Happy Quilting!

So now I realise that you have an allotment on top of everything else. How on earth do you do it? Great quilts, by the way. :-))

Just don't sleep and then you'll get everything done! You certainly haven't been sitting on your laurels. Love the Sue block - does it have a proper name? Jxo

Yes I must agree with Judith - If you are sleeping how could you possibly do anything let alone finish a project! You'll have to just skip that part of your life for now, sleep later! (What is your monkey's name - I think she's been here.) Your quilts are lovely, bright and cheerful. Nice to cuddle up in with tea, toast and strawberry jam.
