Long week end Monday

Gotta love that!!

First and foremost, I would like to add to my last post. I might have sounded like I was complaining but it was not my point. Don't get me wrong, I DO love to quilt! I am by no means a small woman but I do suffer from back problems since I was 20 years old. No! No need for pity; not what I am looking for here. Just stating the facts. (More than a year ago now, I finally found an osteopathic therapist who is doing a wonderful job with my spine so I am living with less and less pain and more determination.(added in for all the well-wishers out there.)) Enough said! What I do want to say is: Machine - quilting is FUN!  I did a lot on the first night because I had FUN !! True, being a south paw, my right side has less endurance. (and I haven't done any exercises in the last 15 years!! ooops!) I coulda, shoulda, woulda listen to my body more attentively IF i hadn't had some much FUN!  Life is short! Why not pack it to the brim with FUN??   Just saying (to my non-quilters friends who mean good, I know).

Enough of the boring stuff... On to the jean quilt... now that is another story.  I am SO happy that I made is small.  Boy that snipping at the seams is hard on the hand and the scissors!! (I do sound like a complainer. Sorry about that.) But I have to say it is hard work. This will be my one and only jean quilt. (Yes, I have also said I don't do off road so... ) Nada! Hopefully the boys will finish the snipping and I can get it wash today and show you a picture of it soon.

Talking of TODAY: (finally we're getting somewhere) I will do some hexies. Yes, I'm in love again.

Four green diamonds attached and 6 more are waiting in line. Yeah!

I love my living green wall in the background. It is such a lovely ivy.  It's an English Ivy (Hedera Helix) the kind that turns red in fall.
So here I will be today, enjoying my lazy Monday.  Will do some baking, cooking and plenty of sewing by hand and by machine. Hope you are enjoying a long weekend too, or at least enjoying the kind of work you have to do.

Until next time ... SMiLE ... it's not hard work.

Yes, you've heard me complain about how hot it is at the moment in Canada but I want to finish the flannel quilt for my son.  Our emblem...
