Motivation Friday

Time to check on my weekly goals--

Catch up With Double Irish Stars QAL--YES
Finish the Stay Center colored blocks--YES
Work on binding the orange quilt--YES
Put away some of the folded fabric--no

Here are the Star blocks I made this week--



Lots of flying geese in these blocks.  I am not fond of making flying geese but I love the star blocks--I make them a bit bigger and trim to fit--


Not the fastest way but it works for me.   Since the design wall was empty I put more blocks on it--




These are the Honeycomb blocks I worked on at the Nebraska retreat.   The wall is not big enough, there is still another row of blocks not up there.  I'll play with block placement for a while.

And my holiday cacti have decided to bloom--


That is one pot that has two different varieties in it--a fuschia/white and a yellow.  There used to be a white one but I think it died last spring--stalk rot.  These plants cover a piano bench.  There is one blooming in the sewing room, I wanted it next to this one but its too crowded.  I have a soft spot for holiday cactus, Ken's grandmother had a huge one, and his mother has a large one too.  Ken took good care of them this summer, he said he watered them once a week.  If he remembered.  

There is still fabric to fold and put away.  I have most my block parts cut for now so I can start putting fabric away.  Maybe this weekend.

Your Christmas Cactus are gorgeous!

I admire your motivation...mine seems to be in short supply. Trying to get Christmas presents bought, ordered or made. Got some new glasses, being able to see better helps with it all.
