That's one of those expressions that makes you wonder where it started ...
Monday was a rainy day, a good day to catch up after a busy weekend -- a turnaround trip to East TN on Friday, setting up handbells on Saturday, early practice and performance at the Sunday service. I needed to get my quilting mojo back.
But I wasn't yet in the mood to start prepping for the upcoming classes I'll be teaching in Illinois. Instead, I turned to an easy pattern I'm doing for Son-2 and DIL called "Twist of Lime" (Fons & Porter's Quilting Quickly May/June 2015) using fabrics I picked up in Paducah.

The light gray squares will have black in the center and the intersections of the light gray and white squares will have lime green squares. Because of the wide variety of greens I have, I'm thinking I should keep those green corners matching, also. Which means I need to lay everything out before I can add the green flip'n'sew corners.
Once I work out the details it will be mindless sewing that I can pick up when I get a few minutes or run through as leaders-enders on what I should really be working on -- class samples and step-outs.
I did devote some time yesterday to organizing my trip files, printing GoogleMaps, and loading Gabby the Garmin. Now it's time to get cracking on triangle log cabins.....
