I thought I was being so good this week, but I guess not ...
While I was being all smug about not poking any buttons, the Circle Around quilt kit arrived that I had forgotten about, with backing, and that was 11.625 yards. Then another box arrived with the backing for the Vintage Memories BOM, another 7.25 yards. Heck, I can't even be good while I'm trying.
Nothing busted, so what's new about that. I realized this week, though, that I'm tired of working on UFOs and need to move on to something new to keep my motivation up. The Rabbits Prefer Embroidery has been fun, and I'm ready to keep going on new things. So far this year I have gotten a bunch of quilts finished and have a stack more to go to the quilter, so massive progress was made on UFOs. It's just time to move on. They aren't going anywhere. I can do another tackle on them later in the year.
Also I'm trying to figure out the best way to sell a lot of yardage that I have tubbed up, kits, and other quilty things. I wish I lived in an area where yard sales were allowed. That would be fun. I'll figure something out. I just know I need to reduce the amount of bulk in the quilting condo.
Which reminds me -- the Fat Quarter Shop is having their 7th Anniversary Sale. I'm just saying.
Oh, oh, I keep forgetting things. Jere'e at Quilted Quickies is having a kit giveaway! She designs the most adorable quilts! Be sure to head over there and enter to win!
