I'm having a clumsy day...

This morning I hit my browbone on the shower. (Don't ask. I had my eyes closed while I was waiting on a hair treatment.)

I burnt my arm and my thumb on the two different unrelated incidents.

On the plus side, the bright batik quilt is sammiched, though it might not get quilted til Wed.
I got one row (out of 6) done my mom's quilt.

I finished my fourth row of the Rockin Robin quilt along.

Rockin Robin #4

It stormed on and off today. I noticed the cat in pointer mode looking out the window. She had spotted a swallowtail that was trying to dry off its wings. I must have watched it for almost an hour, and I took a ton of pictures.

It was pretty magical.

Sometimes fast goes slow...

I got my skill builder block done today.
And I made HUGE progress (so I thought) on a charm pack quilt for my mom.

Until....I actually did the layout and then realized
*headdesk) that I apparently hadn't read the directions as well as I thought I did and pieced blocks together incorrectly. Um...more than 2/3 the time.
In fact, even taking into account the extra blocks I was supposed to have, I only had 12 blocks that worked.
Enter seam ripper. Over and over again.
The pieces are now for the pieces that will go on the back, because I just couldn't rip anymore.
Sometimes fast is slow...

On tap for Monday:
Row 4 of the Rockin Robin
Finishing the back and borders on the bright batik quilt.
Maybe even the quilt sammich if possible.
Quilting the bits of my Make it Modern swap. I am debating handquilting. I'm just not sure.
