Another Change of Mind

The last couple of days have been kind of busy. I didn't do anything on the cogs and gears and, to tell the truth, I just am not satisfied with the way it has turned out. Quite a bit of work in it but I'm just not crazy about it and don't want to put anymore time in the one with the polka dot background. That sort of thing tends to keep you humble, don't you think? So I laid some of the pieces out on the fabric I bought in the first place and think I like that so much better. I would just do them random and not cut them up. Will have to cut out some more pieces but that isn't hard and, after laying them out on the size background I decide upon, it is just a matter of fusing, layering and quilting. Not everything always turns out as we expect.

It has turned way too warm here for still being May. It's forecast to be better by the end of the week so I will do some plant purchasing Thursday and Friday and then do some planting this weekend. I am getting kind of anxious to pretty things up now that it is warm.

Are any of you Dancing with the Stars followers? Tonight we find out who wins. Last year I was so unhappy that Donny won, but this year any one of the three couples can win and it will please me. It has been a fun season. Also, I watched Idol and they have the last two tonight so will have to tape it. Most of the shows that I watch have had their finales except The Good Wife is still on - and that is a great show.

I like the black just as much. I can't wait to see it finished. The whole cloth will be just as interesting. Going off with Linda today to check out the retreat location.

It is way to hot for May! I had to turn the air conditioner on today. You do what you think is best with your cogs and gears. I watch all the programs you listed.
