This is a Wednesday that has felt like Monday all day. I'm dragging a bit and maybe that's because we have been having electrical storms since about midnight. We are catching up with the rain that eluded us this spring and prevented us from having a good garden and flowers.
In another week or so it will be time for flannel jammies, socks and long sleeves - maybe even the occasional jacket. The trees are just beginning to turn color and fall. I can't wait for the first snow!
I'm in a bit of a break from sewing right now, having done more than usual the last two weeks or so. The wheels are turning in my head and the new quilt list is getting longer and longer. Seriously, I need to pull some of the UFO's out and work on them. Here are just a few.....
There is a tremendous amount of work in these blocks. The blades were machine pieced, but they were then appliqued to the block by hand and so was the center circle. These need to be layed out and sewn together and have border(s) added. A special trip was made to Springfield to shop for the background fabric.
This is half of a Jellyroll Race quilt that just needs a border and quilting. It's made from the Swiss Chocolate line of fabric.
All this Christmas runner needs is binding.
I work on several projects at the same time because I become easily bored working on just one at a time. This means I finish up several projects around the same time and many of my quilty friends think all I do is sew. This is not so - I takes LOTS of breaks from sewing, but never from thinking about and planning future projects!
What type of quilter are you? Do you work on just one project at a time. When you shop for fabric, are you buying for several projects at the same time? I would love to hear how you go about this.
Until next time, Hugs and Best Wishes....Barb
