Motivation Friday

I hope everyone was more motivated in their sewing than I was this week. That's not to say I didn't sew, but nothing I can show yet. As for what else I was doing this week - let's just say that I have a heck of a lot of sewing to do to "catch up," if you know what I mean! LOL

This weekend I'll be binding and clearing off my sewing table. I'm going to pull out five projects that I want to finish up next or make. I know one will be the Patchwork Party finishing kit from that luscious Prairie Paisley. I know one will be finishing up the last month and borders on Raspberry Truffles BOM. And I think one will be sewing the last of Thimbleberries Hometown Christmas and getting that together. Also up will be Judy's Quilt for an Hour. Since none of those will be busting stash (except for the backings), the other quilt will be something from stash. I've got a real easy little quickie quilt out of Shangra-La Garden that I might bust.

I want to get as much done by the end of the month as I can because June is a quarter ending month, and we all what that means for me!

I about had a heart attack at the gas pump last night. $4.59.9 certainly got my attention! Man, I could have purchased eight yards of fabric for what it cost me to fill up the QuiltMobile!

And last but not least ... if you've read this far on a blog with no picture:

Today is the end of the contest at Jolly Jabber. I just know I'm going to win!! LOL

sorry, no sympathy hereon the petrol front! We pay US 10.51 per gallon at the moment and fabric is the eqivalent of around US$18 per meter.

Tricked us with the contest!!! What a cute bear! From the picture, it looks like Emma loves it.

Good luck with your sewing this weekend. Gas is too expensive to go anywhere. I don't think I want to open the electric bill when it gets here:)

Vicky, whether or not you won the Jolly Jabber one, you won the So Free drawing on my blog. Will you please send me your address? I'll get your prize out to you by the end of the month. Thanks.

I found out about the Jolly Jabber contest too late, but I thought it was YOU! The bear is adorable, and Emma loves it, doesn't she?
It sounds like you have a wonderful weekend planned - I can't wait to see all that you've accomplished!
As for the gas's time to stay home and sew all day, EVERY day, isn't it? If only we could!
