Jelly Roll Sampler Block #11

Hope there is others out there that are like me. I have really landed in a rut when it comes to motivation for sewing. I don't think that I have ever been like this before. I decided that it must mean that I need not worry about it, it must be time to relax and before long it will all come back. It hasn't stopped me from shopping for fabric so I guess that motivation better hurry and come back :)

A part of my family will be heading out to Tennessee for a family reunion Aug. 9th. We will vacationing out in the Smokies and look forward to being with family again. I am counting on the fact that you will start to see more of me after that.

Here is Jelly Roll Sampler Block #10.
I've enjoyed how simple the blocks have been, yet there has been a couple that were more challenging. I had to stop and think about opposites so the colors would balance.

Other then doing the blocks, I haven't done much quilting at all. Its been frustrating for me because I don't think I have let so much time elapse in between projects before. There must be a reason so I won't fret about it. Till block #11,

I have a grand-daughter turning 2 here very soon! That is her in the top photo sitting on her daddy's lap. Some time back I actually got this idea from watching Martha Stewart on tv. I really don't watch her show that much, but for some reason I did and got the cutest idea for a memory game. I decided to make one set for her birthday.

I got colored copy pictures of all her family including grandparents, aunts and uncles and Modge Podge them on little wooden circles. I bought the wooden circles already pre-cut from Joanns. There is 2 of every picture so she can learn names etc from playing Memory. All that is on the other side is a circle cut from scrapbook paper. Talk about cheap gifts!, but I think that it will be one that she will enjoy for awhile anyways.

I want to make a set to keep here at my house for when the grand-
children come to play.

Jelly Roll Sample Block #9.

Can you believe how fast time flies. I remember how I thought that this sample quilt along would be so fun and it truly has been, yet the time has gone quickly and before you know it, it will be time to put the whole thing together. It will be exciting to see how everyones quilts turn out.
I do need to get back to other WIP's and start another one. It never ends, thankfully!
