Inside Tasks This Weekend !!


I have woken this morning to a very bleak and dreary day.  The breeze is ice cold and all together it makes for a very drab day.  I think that this weekend will have to be an inside weekend.  I have been putting off lots of inside tasks for sometime now so I think the time has come to tackle a few of them and start crossing some things off my list.


High on that list is my Blue & White Collection which lives in this dresser.  I have way too much of it and I think I need to "de-stash" it.  Some pieces have great sentimental value so they will be keepers but a number of these pieces will hit the shelves of my e-bay shop.  It's time to be frugle again and shed some of the things I don't need. 



My mojo has nicked off somewhere again this month - If it has any sense it will be holidaying somewhere warm - I am hoping that it comes home soon as I have lots for it to do. I think if I was to go back through my blog that each time my mojo has run away it has been in these cold few months of the year.  Can't blame it really.......  Before it went away I managed to finish 13 hexagon flowers for my Hexagon Quilt


This is the only stitching that I have managed at all this week - Part of a new project for a magazine.  Fabrics usually inspire me and the blue fabric along with the background fabric were purchases from the Patchwork Cafe on Monday.  It is nice to cut straight into newly purchased fabric - Most of the time it goes into the drawers to live in my stash so it is refreshing to actually be using a recent purchase.


Melody has been very brave the past 2 months and has made herself a monthly to do list and she hit target for May - Well Done Melody !!  I am going to be brave and make myself a list and put on my sidebar.  Hopefully this time next month I can say that I have finished a few.

Have a lovely weekend girls

Hugs,

Fee XX

You're good with destashing... I think I'd be like Vicki and pack them up... OR buy another dresser!! ;) Hope the mojo returns. I think the weather doesn't help sometimes!

Mojo just seems to run away sometimes doesn't it! Darn stuff! hee,hee,hee. I love all your blue and white. Destashing does help to clear the mind though. Love your hexies and now I'll have to hop over and visit Melody. Bunnies ya know. :)

It's rainy & drab here too in NE Vic, so I'm thinking along the same lines as you Fee. Love your dresser- have always loved the ones with the "little" drawers set into them. Your Blue & White sets it off nicely. Have a great weekend.

Definitely time for indoor tasks! You're probably right about the cold weather making your mojo go on vacation. Love your hexagons, and your lovely flowers! Have a great weekend Fee, enjoy some indoor time!

I think when you find your mojo, you will find mine with it.. I too think the colder climate has something to do with it. All I seem to want to do is sleep and hang out in my PJ's. Love that dresser of yours and your hexies are gorgeous. It's colder here today, but yesterday was glorious. I think that putting my list of To Do's on my sidebar is a terrific idea... will look into that xx
