Inspiration.....or lack thereof

I have been so tired lately that I haven't wanted to work on anything.  I know I have to and I will but I really don't want to.  Why has it been like this?

Oh I don't know.  Lots of reasons ... or would that be excuses.  Yesterday there was some stress at work(more like a week of it) but that is starting to die down a little bit.  Then I picked up the bronze plaque that the military did since Tony was a vet.  It was much bigger and heavier than we thought it would be.  We will get it out to the graves eventually...before Memorial Day.  There isn't a rush since he isn't out there yet either.

I do have to paint the urns out at the cemetery.   They haven't been painted in years and desperately need it.  Perhaps I will see when Kerm can go out with me.  It's going to be his job to "install" Tony's marker.  :) 

I did make headway in the test blocks that I need to get done within the next two weeks.  One done and two to go.  The second one is fused on and just needs to be stitched.  Haven't done anything with the third block yet and it looks to be the most complicated.  I also need to help a friend with doing a T-shirt quilt.  She has so many T-shirts that she needs cut and interfacing on that she is paying me to help her do it.  I don't mind.  I wanted to learn how to do them anyway.  :)  I want to do two T-shirt quilts myself.  One out of the T-shirts that my friend Dan gave me when he was overseas in Iraq.  The other one will be from T-shirts from NIU.  I am not wearing them so I might as well put them to use somehow!

I wondered where you've been, Bonni. We must conquer little hurdles now and then. I havent had anything to blog about lately! It's not that I've been idle...just nothing blog worthy! I hope that changes soon.

Thanks Kat. I'm sure you will have lots to show us soon. I think it is this time of year. There are a lot out there who just don't have the motivation to do things right now.
