Woefully Behind

I'm woefully behind on my BOMs - the ones that I have actually started. Here is the latest block in the $5 quilt series and I have 3 more to make. Two of those are applique. I have 5 blocks for Stitchers Garden to make as the last 2 months have had 2 blocks each month. Hopefully I'll have some time this weekend to get caught up or closer to being caught up.
When I was in Atlanta last month, I picked up a couple of stitching stash additions. I finally found some Belle Soie Mudpie and Chocolat that actually did not look exactly the same so I bought those and a couple of charts.
I'm hoping to have mostly a long weekend at home. We've had more activity than we normally do lately and it will be nice to have some peacefulness. We'll probably grill out one night but that is a normal year round activity for us. Whatever you decide to do I hope each of you will have an enjoyable and safe weekend!

Ok so I've been bitten by the bug, I want to learn more about stitching...I did my first Biscornu for a swap and I'm hooked. Problem is I don't know where to even begin...any idea's ? I've crossed before but only on 18ct with DMC threads.

Your quilt block looks like it was hard to piece. You did a fabulous job. I love the fabric combination too. Those stitching charts look like so much fun, and I am glad you found the thread you were looking for.

I always seem to be behind for something or other.

We don't plan on going anywhere this weekend either. I do need to do some grocery shopping. Should be nice and crazy at the stores this weekend. I realized this morning that I guess we should grill out on Monday to make it "official" or something. We try to grill out once a week or so anyways.

I can relate to woefully behind! I'm beginning to just realize that it's the way things are. Love your quilt block and do hope that you can get some time to do a little catching up this weekend.
