Working Hard or Hardly Working

I don't have much to show for all the work I have been doing.
I have been working away on my double wedding ring quilt.

It seems that if you start working on a stage and have it figured out,
 you should keep working away at it before you loose your skills.

Doesn't look like much but this picture represents a few hours of work.


 I think I have half the amount of melons needed for a second row.

I also took time this past week to caulk my bathtub.  
 had to go online and review a youtube video 
which was most helpful and got the job done.


About a year and half ago, I went to visit my daughter in London, England.

I had heard about Liberty London and took a trip down there by myself and just 
gawked at all of the pretty fabric and other items in the store.
I was on limited funds back then and came away with nothing.
Then on my last day in London, I went back with my daughter 
and she encouraged me to buy 'something'
or I would regret it.

I found this little pack of hexigons with 50 different fabrics and papers.


I brought them home with me and have been sitting down here and there to work away on them.
The colours and patterns are all so diverse.

This one is such a cutie!


Wouldn't you agree?

I hope that one of these days that I will have a finish to show.
I bought backing at the last quilting retreat
for my Tessellating Crosses quilt so am going to stretch it out
and put it under the machine to quilt.


 I guess I like having quilts at all stages. 
I like having the choice of different projects to work on,
or maybe I deceive myself and really only have ADD.
I am enjoying my long weekend and I hope you are too if it's a long one for you too!
