Bits of Time

We aren't all just lazing around, but we are taking things a bit at a time.  There are several things going on that need attention and it is being tackled  in  scheduled times along with some enjoyment of some lovely weather for a change.  A week ago we had temps in the 30's with snow and now in the 70's with sunshine - have to soak it in.

Bits of time was used to get the light background Chandelier Bead Blocks done in the new RSC19 color.

We hung quilts in the library to prepare for the show.  They will hang for two weeks with a number of flower and quilting activities mixed in.

A little bit of time was taken to get the dark background Chandelier Bead Blocks done in the new RSC19 color.

The garden club came in to the library to set up the little vinettes of flowers with some of the quilts.  These will stay up for a week or as long as the flowers last.

Some of the Button Blocks for the Temecula Quilt Co project.  I did make a few in blue - I have a lot of blue.

I made 80 signature blocks up as well with bits of time for an activity at the library - will show these the day they are used.

One of the library activities - decorate a planter and then plant a flower of choice.  Yes, I donated the fabric and some other bits for this project.

Then I attended the presentation of Betty Fikes Pillsbury on growing roses followed by a lovely tea party on the front porch of the library.

So I have been grabbing bits of time to stitch, enjoy the day, and support a local series of activities.  How do you use your bits of time?

Sewingly Yours,

What a wonderful combo of quilts and flowers! I love the vignette with the small crazy quilt. It is just so perfect. All the activities sound grand.

Isn't it amazing how the weather has shifted one week to the next? Love your chandelier blocks, those blues are so pretty. Happy stitching this week.

Really enjoyed your post Sharon. Love the blocks you've made. How do I use little bits of time? I spent a few minutes thinking about it and I'm not as good as I used to be at making good use of bits of time. I must get back to using my time more wisely. Thank you for making me reflect on this.

My little bits of time lately while my machines are at the spa involve a little handstitching and organizing and cutting. Even while on the phone lol

We accomplish SEW much more when we use bits of time!! I use my bits of time differently depending on the day. Today, I sent my bits of time to enjoy my favorite wait blogs. Tomorrow, I will quilt!

Your library has some wonderful programs. It must be a great community resource.
