I finished putting the last sashing and borders on my client's antique quilt top yesterday, and sent it downstairs to let Guy put some quilting in the sashing before I tie the blocks and bind it.
I was glad to get that out of my sewing room; it's been nagging at me and I knew I just needed to sit down and finish it up. So, I had a "free" day to start a new project. What is it about having a blank slate? I had a terrible time deciding what to start on....do you have that problem?
Here were some of my possibilities:
I now have TWO possible designs for my "Summerbreeze" fabrics; I went back to EQ yesterday morning and started playing with other lay outs....but I can't decide which one I like, so that project is going to sit a while longer.
I designed this Sudoku quilt for Guy while I was on vacation (can you believe I have never made him a quilt?) He's the "Sudoku Guru" around here. I think I want to use my Cherrywood scraps, but I was too lazy to open the drawer and start sorting........
I found this gorgeous button when I was shopping at JoAnn's a few weeks ago; the button led me to the blacks and whites; the blacks and whites led me to the red....this will be a purse for Tracey when I get my act together...but I have to find the Pellon and where did I put that?...........and where's the pattern?
VCQ Celebration starts exactly ONE WEEK from tomorrow.....and I still haven't put my class kits together. I need to print out some landscape photos, I have to decide what three colors I want to use in Bonnie Hunter's "Smith Mountain Morning" class. I fully intended to get a lot of pre-cutting done before class, since Bonnie's classes are all about the sewing, sewing..
The landscape class has a laundry list of items that I think I have around here somewhere, but I guess I'd better get busy and find them.
And, of course, I still need to decide on a border for my "Little Monkey" quilt.....took it to my hand-quilt group yesterday, and got tons of suggestions, but no really great ideas.
You can see where this is heading, can't you folks? I spent so much time wondering how to spend my free morning, that......I ran out of time and had to leave to run some errands........sometimes you can have too much of a good thing.....
Margaret's picking me up early in the morning to head to Patchwork Plus for a little retail therapy. Maybe I'll have my Mojo working by the time I get home......now it's time for a little Washington National's baseball and a good book before bed.
Have great evening....it rained slowly and softly all day here today, and our trees and shrubs got a much-needed watering....
