It's been so crazy at work this week. Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. I was so tired when I got home last night that I wanted to go straight to bed, but I made myself sit and applique a bit. Then when I finally went upstairs, I tossed and turned until 3:30 this morning - then fell asleep. Needless to say, it's been a long day!

I just finished the last circle on the first Bundling Board block. This is so easy. A good one to ease back into applique. Circles are my favorite thing to needleturn. They're still not perfectly round, but it'll get better. I just haven't done hardly any needling for the longest time. This felt good. But I had forgotten how stretchy all those wovens are. It'll need to be blocked before they're sewn together. And if it's a bit crooked -- oh, well, it's folk art!

OMG Vicky! I can't believe how quickly you've got that block done. It looks lovely and yes, it's folk art and no I can't see that the circles aren't perfectly round. Have a wonderful day.

You're circles aren't perfectly round - surely you jest. Please don't fret - I'll enjoy this quilt immensely. teehee!!!!

Oh, this is coming along nicely! This is one of the projects I have bagged up for myself, for 'someday' :)

Don't work too hard!

The weekend will be here soon and you'll be able to relax and sleep in. The applique block is really cute-can't tell the circles aren't perfect at all.
Take care of yourself, don't get too run down.

I like the idea of folk art applique too - so flexible, and easy to say it was a design choice. I haven't done much applique at all, so I need all the leeway I can get. Stress is good - it shows you how strong you are and how much you can accomplish.

Your Bundling Board block is looking nice. And soooo quick! Sure hope things settle down at work soon.
