I'm not Dreaming it's a White Christmas
Now, is the time for me to get busy sewing. I have three classes I am teaching in the early spring and one lecture I have to prepare for. Thank goodness, one quilt top is totally finished, but it still needs to be quilted, if there is time. I now have 9 blocks done for my retreat quilt and am debating whether to stop there or continue on to 20 blocks. I have a few blocks done for my lecture quilts and need to add to those and put them into tops at the very least. Finally, I need to finish my Inspiration quilt top and decide if I have time to get it quilted before April. I have bits and pieces done, but nothing finished. I can't blame the computer for distracting me since I haven't had it for several months. I just need to focus and get going. I need to set a plan, work on one thing at a time and not let other new projects distract me. HaHa!! I am always distracted by the new and fun project which is why I have such a nice collection of quilt tops. I have quilted several quilts lately, but those are the small tops, some of which have been sitting around for more than a year. (10+ years for the color wash quilt) edit: oops! didn't realize I hadn't posted pics on this one. Made the center many, many years ago. Then several years ago, I added the border. I was planning on making a pillow out of it, but then I decided how to quilt it and put a hanger on it so now, it's a small wall hanging. See it hanging off my yardstick? I came up with that system so I could photograph some of my small quilts.
Okay, I know, get off this computer and go get busy. But, first lunch! Now to decide what to have? This may take awhile.
