Project Life 2012 - Week Nine, and MBOM

Hello Project Life Week 9...a week that almost didn't make it onto the blog ;)


There is something about this week's layout that I just don't like. It could be the duller colours, or that I've mixed too many patterned papers, or that, in the end I just wanted it DONE! Any hoo, here it is...



I've included an insert, which has a spelling test from my youngest on one side (a good record of her neatest handwriting at this age), and some journaling on the other. The journaling side is a definite re-do...it's quite awful! LOL I had to keep switching pens, my writing wasn't well thought out, and in general it is quite...well, awful. Just keeping it real here ;)


Moving on.

Our 2012 Mystery Block of the Month (MBOM) from the Fat Quarter Shop is quickly coming to a close...this one is Block Nine by Joanna Figueroa from Fig Tree, and is called Lakeside Retreat.


Only 3 blocks to go, and we are done! Luckily, the 2013 quilt is looking rather lovely...I would miss receiving my little fabric parcel in the post each month!

That's another couple of ticks off my to-do list for March, which is pretty good considering I haven't even put the list up on my blog yet...hahahaha...oh dear.

Happy hump day!

I think it looks great, full of stories and pictures. Sorry it wasn't working for you this week. I can so relate to that, remember my first weeks this year. I know you have new goodies to work with now and I bet week 11 is going to be AWESOME!! Thanks for sharing it with us!!
LOVELY LOVELY block, happy colors!

Your Pl looks good nothing wrong with it, i would keep the journaling you hate so much because that is life running out of ink etc. Ho hum i am two blocks behind with one on the way i had better get moving/sewing.

Your pages looks great, though we all have weeks where it just doesn't seem to 'work' how we'd like.
Love the new MBOM block, haven't made mine yet, but it is on the list!
