Busy weekend but little to show

/ Sunday, 16 May 2010 /
Yes, friends, I was fairly productive this weekend, huzzah! As you can see, I started quilting the neutrals quilt. I was amazed at the range of suggestions offered for the back, whether it should have colour or continue the neutral theme. For the colours, there were so many different suggestions. I liked them all, and think they would all work wonderfully well. I guess it's true that neutrals go with everything! I won't reveal just yet what I decided - I'll leave you all in suspense a little longer!
But I have little photographic evidence of the rest of my weekend work, because, in my haste to catch up on my heinously behind bees, I packaged up the two bee blocks that I completed before taking photos. I had a nagging feeling that I had forgotten something. Anyway, believe me when I say they were not evidence of my finest hour. I finally made the gnome home for Sharon of the Incredible Shrinkers, and despite best efforts, this one ended up looking like something a Habitat for Gnomanity team on crack made. I am so sorry, Sharon. I did my best. I also made the two vintage sheet pinwheel blocks for Heather, in the Maple Leaf Bee. So I have caught up with my April bees, which is no real accomplishment, since it's the middle of May.
Waterproof gardening gloves
I also wanted to show you these waterproof gardening gloves. Because why? Because tomorrow morning at 6.30 I'll be doing pushups in the mud at a fitness boot camp, and looking forward to four days a week of this regime, for four weeks. Why, oh, why? All I can say is it sounded like a good idea at the time.   At least these will keep my hands out of the mud.

P.S. This is my 97th blog post. My century post is looming, and a giveaway, too! What will it be? Hmmmm *scratches chin*.......

Are you giving away the neutrals quilt? Looks lovely so far. I like the swirls.

While you may not be all that thrilled with using neutrals at least you tried it out.

Good luck with "boot camp" The glove colors would look great on the back of your quilt :)
