Taking inventory

OMG - I have to many projects in the making, at the same time, with deadlines galore…..

This last month has not been productive, rather contra productive - and I fool you not !

I have started to many projects and they are piling up - I do not like that! The more I have going the less I get done!

I am still tired after a month of coughing and having been on antibiotics. The coughing is almost gone now, and I need to rebuild some strength and focus.

I feel like doing like the local furball - just chilling it ;-)


Remember these ?


Was it March I aimed at doing 96 blocks ?
I finished 72 blocks and is happy about that. Scraps from stash and old bed linen for foundation, turned in to blocks for 3 quilts. Not bad :-)
I also promised myself to use all of  my black fabrics this year.

I have a deadline for these 3 quilts, so I better get at it, like in Right Now!

See where I am going ?

In between one can use a snack to keep the focus and to stretch some shoulder muscles  :-)


A very ripe banana, cinnamon, raisins and a handful of oatmeal into an ordinary cupcake recipe - yummy :-)

The day after - Saturday:


3 finished tops and a dent in the black stash too :-)

Late Saturday evening:


The red / pink / black quilt is machine quilted and ready for binding !

No new starts until I get this overwhelming feeling of creative chaos under control - promise !!



  1. WOW! You are on a mission.

  2. I don't sash many quilts myself but I love these. You're making good progress!

  3. Hanne you have been one busy lady..all looks so good.

  4. Wow, you have have been busy!!! And it looks like you are well on your way to getting some of those "disturbing" projects out of the way! Three tops, one of them already quilted and ready for binding! Well done!!!

    Happy to hear you are feeling better! Hope your strength will be completely restored soon!

    Have a great Sunday!

  7. Og du sier du ikke har vært produktiv?? For meg ser det da ut som om du har fått gjort en hel masse:-)Du har all grunn til å være fornøyd med alt det flotte du har fullført her!

    Way to go, and love the picture of the furbaby. She's as cute as ever.

  11. You made some good progress on your projects, Hanne! Way to go!!!
    We're going to make some of these string block quilts for a local project we're sponsoring in our guild, for single Moms and their babes. I like the idea of using sheets for the foundation!
    All the best! Mary Ann
