A Time to Catch-up with my Mojo

My sewing Mojo has been on hiatus.  I decided to take a birding class that meets on Monday evenings and then has a field trip every Saturday for 8 weeks.  In hindsight I didn't realize that the field trips often required departing my house at 5:30 a.m. and not getting back until 6 or 7 p.m.  My error.
Add to that my frequent trips to my new house in Reno, and I pretty much eliminated my desire to sew.  Or my desire to do much of anything else.

Now I seem to be on the other side of the obstacles and I'm getting back to sewing. The first thing that I took on was a Round Robin group that I am in with the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild.  

There are only 4 of us in our little sub-group.  I received this start from Chris that Jaye had added to:


I first did this:





I should tell you that fabric was limited (especially the white background with the black circles)  and I really had to stretch the fabric to get to this point!

Then I started on what I really wanted to add:




I'm half way there!  Two more corners to add and I'll be ready to pass this on to the next member in our group to add yet another round.  

One of the things that I really love about participating in Round Robins with people you know is that you get such amazing results from such a simple start.  I can't wait until the next person adds their touch to this to see what spin she will put on this experiment.  

I hope you had a wonderful Halloween and I will touch base again in the near future.

Aaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.

    1. Funny - when you don't sew, there's nothing to blog about! Hopefully I'm back in the groove.
      Hope to see you soon!
