I think she may be back!

Hey, I think my "Mojo" may be back. You see, I haven't really done much sewing or embroidery. I normally always do embroidery work at night during the week while watching TV and then do my piecing, etc. on the weekends. I have not done this in a while. I guess I had a "temporary" loss of interest. Not really loss of interest, but loss of "want to".
I am doing the Bunny Hill BOM (see side bar). I was doing GREAT and getting each month's block done. Then it happened, I fell behind. Well, my dear friend, Molly, has been working on hers and inspired me. I have got the other four blocks together and now I am stitching them down with the buttonhole stitch. I will add all the embellishments (ribbon, buttons, etc.) after the quilt is complete and quilted (those things tend to get in the way of a machine quilter).
Here is a 'not very good' picture of the first 3 blocks complete (except for embellishments) and the next four that are in the process of being stitched down. I'm pumped! My Mojo has returned! Thanks Molly!
I know what you are really thinking: 'wonder why she doesn't get that lint roller and clean all those threads off that design wall?' LOL! I've been thinking about it! Does that count?

The baskets all look great. I thought I was going to do this BOM too but didn't even finish the first block but I'm saving the patterns for future use. And I know that feeling of lack of interest, it must be going around.

Your blocks are beautiful! I think its just summer, I just don't feel like doing much and then I really get excided about quilting or knitting and then its back not feeling like doing anything!

You are doing such a great job with your blocks. I have three done and machine appliqued: still that the hand embroidery to do. I haven't done that in 35-40 years so it will be something of a challenge.

Awesome, Kathey!! I need to get some MoJo here and seeing your post is giving me a much-needed reminder to get going on these blocks and my own, too. :-)

Glad you got your Mojo back! Your baskets look great! I am a bit behind on my baskets at the moment, but maybe this will push me a little so I can catch up. Thanks!
