Design Wall Monday - Not Much Going On

The weather was beautiful this weekend and even better we didn't have to be anywhere or do anything.  Well other then a bit of laundry and little housework.  But other than that, it was a very relaxing weekend.   Not that I'm any more ready to head back to work, Monday always seems to come too soon. 

In spite of it being a laid back weekend, not a lot of sewing happened.  Napping was the preferred activity after all the housework was done.  I'm still trying to catch up on all the sleep lost while My Guy and I were sick.  I did get row 2 of Grand Illusion done along with the next row of sashing.

Grand Illusion,  A Bonnie Hunter Mystery














I'm only making 5 rows of blocks, so I'm not quite half way there.  I'm still not thrilled with this quilt, but I've got so many of the parts made that it seems silly not to finish it. 

That's about it for the design wall this week. I've been working to finish up the blocks for several projects. Once those are all done, them I'm going to tackle settings one at a time.  Hopefully by reducing the number of projects I'm actively working on I'll get a few more quilts finished.  Grand Illusion is the first one of those.

  1. Everyone needs a little break from time to time, sounds like you could use one after the last couple of weeks.

  2. Hope you are feeling better. I agree that you should finish after all the work you've put in. It is a pretty quilt.

  3. Your body is telling you to rest - listen to it. Keep working the Illusion - it would be a shame to let that sit.

  4. Hope you get some more rest. Your Grand Illusion looks great. I gave up on mine. I had a lot of the units done (for the small size) when it was revealed, and just wasn't too excited about finishing it up by then. I decided to scrap it and I'm using the bits and pieces for other projects. Have a great week.

  8. As my friend Sue says, all those little pieces make me itch. Yours is looking good though. I like the bright green you used, especially.

  9. GI is going to be wonderful as all of your work usually is! I even took a small nap yesterday after the weekends festivities! That crud is definitely in all parts of the country right now!

  10. So pretty, love the motion in Grand Illusions. Why is it Monday's come so quickly and Fridays take so long to get here???? Enjoy a nap, sometimes that's all it takes.
