Do you wish sometimes that you could make the rest of the world stand still and you'd busily catch up with all the things on your list? Jodie posted about her list in only the way Jodie can. I'm a list maker too and sometimes I feel just like her, that my head is going to explode with all the things running around in there trying to get out, trying to prioritize themselves, trying desperately to get done. I make lists so that things don't get lost in there. Sometimes it even works.
I've been a busy bee so far this week. Hubby is in Chicago all week. I miss him terribly, but his absence does give me a bit more time to sew. I've been working on a couple of secret projects. Sorry I can only give a sneak peak. This first one will have a pattern and tutorial later in the spring. I made one for myself as a trial run. I'm loving it. This one is for someone special.
Again, apologies, another secret project....this one is turning out too. The quilting fairy seems to be smiling on me this week.
The heart blocks are coming along. The red ones are ready to become hearts. The pink ones are just about there too. I thought at first this would be one quilt...now I think it might be two. I'm still playing with ideas for these.
Ever seen a hundred hearts? I'm still cutting....oh dear...these are a secret too.
Lastly, I'm caught up on my virtual quilting bee commitments. Fabric sets were piling up...I was getting a bit stressed; I hate when things are late, so I did a quilt block marathon. The top two are Alissa's blocks for January, bottom left is Jenny's for January, and I even did Stefanie's for February. When an idea hits, you just need to go for it! Don't these ladies know how to pick fabric! They are all so different, but all gorgeous!
My mom's machine is in the shop, so I'm back to my trusty Singer. That means no quilting this week. That means my goal for finishing 2008 tops has to be put on hold. I have been quilting away...three are basted and in progress. So many more to go. I've been trying to hold back with starting new projects...now I have an excuse....I'm off to sew.
PS...blog friends...I'm working my way through reading my blog list....I haven't been able to get the list under 500 posts. Could you hold up on posting while I catch up? I know...you have lots to say and share, and I hate to miss out. A little patience, please?
Oh, and I have 3 awards to acknowledge and pass on...I'm working on it...it's harder when you actually try to pass them on. If only the world stood still...
