In the middle of a conflict



I've been in the middle of a conflict between my "real life" and my "quilting life". Guess which one has taken precedence. Yes, I can hear the collective gasp out there and if you are thinking, "How rude!", that is my sentiment, exactly.
Let me tell ya, no time to quilt and PMS are not a good mix! But I just kept telling myself, "This too shall pass." And guess what! It did! I found some time to quilt Sunday and Monday.




And Tuesday I had these little units laid out ready to be put together.




My last setting strip (of one inch squares) is together! Yipee!




Today, I'm fusing down leaves and getting some machine applique in. And I'm forgetting all about my hectic (last)week and that nasty PMS.
Isn't quilting fabulous!
Happy sewing!
