I actually accomplished something yesterday. I finished the quilt top I’ve been working on! Sorry I can’t share more than a tease but I’m so excited to have gotten something done I had to mention it. Of course I’m still a long way off from being truly finished. And part of me is incredibly sad about how much work I still have to do on my cutting and piecing techniques. I suppose I just need practice. And some patience. Mostly practice. So of course my brain is jumping ahead of the work still to do on *this* quilt and starting to plan the next project. (Simple 4 patches with larger squares made in blues and greens from my stash, in case you’re curious.) But back to the present, with any luck I will be able to get it pressed and basted in the next week or so. That’s my plan anyway. We’ll see how it goes. I have a lot of plans and not lots of time to accomplish them.
To celebrate getting something done I put a hold on Treasures from the Attic so I could finish it. Of course I could only place a hold and not download it so I’m still not being distracted by a good book 😉
I’ll be linking up Thursday with Elizabeth’s new sharing spot for sewing projects and reading. Not that I’ll get to join in often, given my super slow progress with such things. But I do love looking at all the beautiful things other bloggers are creating. I always need some more distractions. Maybe it will be more inspiration than distraction. And anyway, it’s way better than doing dishes.
