Back to it

I figured that when I retired, I would have lots of time to be a good blogger, with daily posts and lots of fun information. Apparently that's not the case. I retired on the 30th of April, and it's now May 5. Not a single post from me in the last week and a half. Oops.  I was going to blame being away last weekend, but I think if I'm honest it's just laziness :)  I've been enjoying my first week off work, and treating it like a vacation. Which I think is a good thing - I NEEDED a vacation.  But it's time for me to figure out what retirement actually looks like, and start getting some sort of schedule/plan in place.  So here I am with step 1 - getting back to blogging more regularly.

I've been plugging away at some of my active projects this week, and have moved a couple of them along.  Chain Reaction is basically done now. I need to square it up, and then decide if it wants borders. I think it does, simply to make it large enough for a donation quilt.  I had a lot of fun making this, and I'm pretty impressed with how flat all the Y-seams are lying. But it was a lot of work, and may not be on my list again any time soon.

My one-block wonder is getting closer to completion. I think this is going to be the final layout. I have to see if I have enough of the green fabric for the borders.

I'm linking up at The Needle and Thread Network today.
