Full of Mo-Jo.....

That's right! I either got my Mo-Jo back, or Finn's Mo-Jo found it's way to me....

I have been sewing, cutting, and arranging up a storm today! Woohoo for me!!! And I DID start another project!!! So much for getting more UFOs done! I think maybe my Mo-Jo got lost in a UFO funk..... so something new was just the thing I needed today! 8-) ....

This is what I look like at the comp in the morn.... after I make my day's first cup of coffee.... Good thing we have air-conditioning, otherwise those fur girls wouldn't be sitting on me!!! Ruby doesn't seem to realize that she is actually too big to lay on me like that any more.... Goofy girl! 8-)
There is my start for the day! Two charm packs, and some neutrals that I cut up first thing.... Doing my markings....
Getting the sewing done.... Pfaffy and I were friends today. Bonded quite nicely, so much so, that I think I will attempt to do more on the anniversary quilt tomorrow.... Keep your fingers crossed for me!
The train is coming along quite nicely.....
My side-kicks on the chair in my sewing room.... non too impressed with me spending the day in there.... DH took them for their walk tonight, so I don't have to feel guilty any more...Trimming up the half square triangles.... There were sooooo many of them!!! 8-)
The start of the layout on my display wall.... I need a bigger display wall...... shall have to fix that problem soon....
This is as far as I got for today.... Not a bad day I would say! Not a bad day at all! Very productive! 8-)
My only troubles today was my feet swelling again, and a sore back!!! Seems every time I spend a lot of time sitting at the sewing machine my feet swell!?! Good thing I am going to the doc's next week!!!

Still don't have my new glasses. I am needing them badly. My existing glasses are driving me kind of nutty. Can't see right with them, and can't see right without them, so they have been on and off my face over the weekend....

That be it for now folks! Time for bed...

What a great days work. Glad to see you're sewing again.

Have you raising your feet while you are sewing. It might help a little.As for the back I'd advise a few rests where you can stretch your back.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Wow! That's impressive. You did a lot in one day and all those triangles too! Don't you just hate trimming hundreds of little triangles?

Hope the doc has some suggestions about your swelling feet, 'cause when the mo jo hits like this you just gotta be able to sit for the day :-)

The layout is coming along very nice.  Is all of that fabric from Kansas Troubles collections or is it a scrap quilt that has some KT fabric?  Some of it looks familiar.  Very, very nice. Hard to remember to take little breaks here and there when you get busy and motivated making a quilt - drink lots of water and then you have to stop for potty breaks! Keep up the good job. - Marlene
