I started this mini quilt a few weeks ago. I love the pattern but really dislike my color choices.
Maybe when they are not next to each other, but they feel a bit garish.
I never thought I would say this, too many polka dots, well maybe they are too much the same...
What was I thinking with that big greenish yellow blob in the center block? How could I not see that????
Any way I am walking away from it and NOT finishing it. I will put the blocks in my box of orphans and cannibalize them at a later date...do you do that, just walk away if it is not working for you? I have too many other things I want to make. Now I love the pattern and want to make it but I will re-think the fabrics and do it another time.
Now it feels like spring, the candy and the eggs are waiting to be hidden.

To keep my Suzie Homemaker crown, I made Bob a crustless lemon meringue pie the other night. I very rarely make dessert but he worked hard and deserved some pie. He is not a fan of the crust so I skipped it (and saved some time and effort), it turned out great and was easy.
For those of you who are fans of the Outlander books, I just finished book 2. Just when I thought there was no where else to go, she surprised me again. I can't wait to start book 3.
Linda from Flourishing Palms alerted me that the network, Starz will be starting a series on these books this summer. I need to hurry up and get the rest of them read!
