Weekend Stitching: Things Were Slow

It wasn't the most productive weekend on the stitching front.  The cold seems to have sapped my get up and go.  My normal Saturday stitching time was spend napping to get rid of a headache. Sunday it was time to deal with getting the tree down.  I had promised this year I would deal with the disaster of the ornament boxes as part of our closet clean up.  That took most of Sunday afternoon. 



This is just one end of the dinning room table the other side was full as well. 

I did get some evening time in the sewing room both days of the weekend, but not much got done.  The only progress on En Provence was to get enough quarter square triangles done to frame the one block that's now partially assembled.  


 En Provence, A Bonnie Hunter Mystery (2016)

I'm happy with the color choices after dropping the gold from the star corner blocks and using the background fabric instead.  I'll continue to work on En Provence, but it will be secondary to the graduation quilts.  Those need to come first.

  2. I think the color change was a smart decision, I really like it. I have to tackle my Christmas decorations as well - I've been putting it off....

  6. The block is very pretty. I know what you mean about the cold. I always makes me want to get under the covers and sleep. We have a closet that probably looks something like yours. I keep telling Mike that when he retires we're going to purge some of the closets and drawers at our place.

  7. Darn it. Sometimes changing the holiday decor has to take precedence over sewing time. I lucked out as hubby decided it needed to be done and boom! Everything except snowmen is away. (He also put up most of it....a definite keeper.) Your En Provence looks lovely.
