I did finish Julies CYT "Fishing Block" and it came out quite Folk Art-ish despite what I tried to achieve, especially the fish I motifed . I am not thrilled with it but do believe it looks better in person than in this photo. You never know exactly how a block will end up in crazy quilting which is an expectant part of the fun. I am doing seam treatments to Rebeccas "Mouse Block" now and am enjoying it because of the purple, yellow and teal color scheme. 1 more block after Rebeccas (Sharons "Garden Block") and the RR is complete. I have not been doing any good with my personal challenge CQ so nothing to report there. I am just glad to be blogging again after such a dry spell!
We have been doing some outdoor winter preparation around the house but did take a ride up into the Keweenaw to Eagle Harbor. Check out Georges site for a feel of the area... http://www.eagleharborweb.net/index.htm
The weather was dry and sunny, great for a day trip to catch the tale end of the fall colors. The draught sure cabashed the display but there were still some glowing vistas in a few areas. I didn't get any good photos of foilage but did get a few of some other things. Mainly the Monastery between the Harbor and theRiver. Somehow I knew better than to push my luck past anything other than lunch, so that meant no shopping. Shopping is something my husband despises and it is mostly a necessity thing when we do go together. That or a real treat!
I have deduced that the 'Feng Shui' around my creative space was bad. I was missing my table as the computer was set up on it when we moved here and what I had going on was all wrong for how I like to work. I couldn't leave anything out and to do anything crafty was such a chore to set up that I found myself not doing anything at all. I had to bite the bullet and fix that problem and at the same time I knew I would be fixing some of whats been depressing me. So I worked on the computer space and my creative space (again) this weekend. I moved the desk down and the table up. I weeded out some books, cleaned and revamped all the PC hardware and now have a spot in the loft that I wanted since we moved here.
