It's another rainy morning and as I look around
from not-my-usual-table, I'm thinking everyone
here had the same idea:
It's a good morning to hit the coffee shop.
Someone even took "my" table. The nerve!
Hmm, maybe that's a little nudge?
It is a new season. Have I grown a little
too comfortable with anything?
Fabric, colors, styles, quilting....
Well, I did step out of my comfort zone last month
to paper piece all those snowflakes! No I'm not
going to launch another whine-session about it
but it's a nice segway into today's list.
Snowflakes, aka Christmas Flurries
The Snowflakes are quilted and off the frame.
I think I'll go with Christmas Flurries for the name
unless a better one hits by the time I make the label.
(I'll get better pic upon when it's completely done.)
Charity Baby Quilts
Finish quilt #2 top.
I already had this into rows so this was easy to
check off. Next Mount Scrap Batting did a great
job in setting me up nicely for both quilts.
The backings were then prepped...
Hmm, was that momentum building?
I only planned to get the first one loaded up
yesterday but I guess I was just in my zone.
Suddenly, it was quilted, rolled off and
the second one was on and ready to go.
Wow, baby quilts go so quickly!
So quickly that in no time the second baby
quilt joined the pile. What a day!
I'm positively giddy to be finished with items
I thought I'd be putting on today's list!
I stitched up trimmings from baby quilt #2 to make
a mere 30 HSTs; no progress on anything else.
It's a lake out there! I'm thinking it'll be well
into April before anything else gets planted.
Up until yesterday I was feeling like I still had not
come out of my post-holiday slow-mo rut.
I was even going to blame it on the rain.
Yes, the rain that actually set the stage for my
awesome quilty-packed day. I work well enough
with my own to-do lists but I have never liked
deadlines set by others. As a consequence I try
to start those things early. Thankfully, I did that
this time and now with my big jump, certainly
I'll be finished by next Wednesday--or earlier.
Maybe the sew-jo is finally picking up!
Label and bind / completely finish.
Charity Baby Quilts
Label and bind both; submit.
Nothing to do but watch the rain.
A last word on comfort zones...it's good to step
out occasionally but that doesn't mean we have
to stay out. Maybe things were just fine before.
