All kinds of lazy?

When I look at the end result of yesterday's stitching, I keep thinking I must have been all kinds of lazy yesterday, but then I look around at the house sparkling, and recall Amy's return to netball for the year and I remember what actually took place yesterday.

She played two games last night, so from 7pm to 10.30pm life became netball. Ohhh, and I'm not sure if it was a good move, but I'm coaching the school team now ... and they won last night! By one goal shot in the last 15 seconds of the game ... a real nail biter!

Before I go on, I have to say this - to my wonderful friend Linda in San Jose, please look away now, this post has Thimbleberries content!!

And this is what I started yesterday - a cute little table topper! I think I may be becoming a bit ADD with my stitching in the last couple of weeks, I'm feeling like I'm starting a whole lot of new things all of a sudden, and I don't normally do that ... but it's been really fun!

Melanie mentioned the other day that I still have time to put a Valentine project together, which jogged my memory about a pattern I received as a gift last year. It's super cute, and shouldn't take too long to put together, so I started cutting yesterday. I have a LOT of Thimbleberries scraps left over from club over the years, so it's going to be wonderful to use up some of it.

I managed to make up the triangle sections for the bottom of the hearts ... and that's it! But it's a start, right! I'll be able to get a lot more done today - and I'm sooooo looking forward to to the applique component - I haven't done any for a while, and I love it! This will be the first time I've ever made a Valentine quilt!

Well, that's it from me today, I'll look forward to showing you the next installment of my new project! Have a great day!

That topper is going to be soooo cute, Tazzie! I wonder how many of us fell into quilting because of Thimbleberries patterns and fabrics. They were my first love, followed closely by Little Quilts. I still love the older Thimbleberries fabrics and patterns. :D

That is a cute little table topper.

Congratulations on the win Coach!
What is net ball? Is it similar to basketball or volleyball?

Congratulations on the win! How long is the netball season?
Have fun with the hearts-aren't you joining any of the T'berries clubs this year?

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm glad you did *s* Love the table topper -- I'm soon going to doing a scalloped border on a project -- they are fun.

I think I should have looked away too. A Valentine's Day project sounds wonderful. I even have a pattern with scalloped edges and hearts.

I had to laugh at that last bit. It's been annoying me that I can't get the TAST webring to leave out all the extra spaces on my lj sidebar. =) I guess we share that trait - even spaces and symmetry.
