Ok, I admit it, I'm 13 Nine Patches Behind . . . .

Since today is June 13th that means I haven't even done one yet . . . .  AGGGHHHHH!  I was going to be so good and do one a day.  What happened???? 

Life happened.  I have been a little busy.  New grandson, who is absolutely adorable even with the current shade of orange/yellow skin he's currently sporting making him resemble a little pumpkin, the shop turned 14 and had a birthday celebration, I had a birthday.  Hmmm, what else has been going on?  ISN'T THAT ENOUGH????  That all happened in one weekend so I think I can use the excuse that I took this past week off to recover and didn't get any Nine Patches sewn. 

But even I have to admit - no more excuses.  I've decided to combine two projects into one.  I NEED to  make something with our NJ batik.  I want to make nine patches.   Why not combine the two? 

So today, I'm going into the store and dipping into the 30 new batik bolts that went onto the sales floor yesterday and finding something for a background for my 9 patches.  Then I'm going to claim owner's privilege, designer's privilege, SOME PRIVILEGE, snatch a whole bolt of the lighthouse batik and bring it home.  That's what I'm going to make my Nine Patch Blocks out of.

Ok, I have a plan, a course of action, and a deadline.  This could work!

Till next time.
