And Saturday means sewing starts for the weekend ... after a haircut, a car wash, and a market run!
I plan on finishing up the Brrrrr Park/Winter blocks and start setting them, but I need to do a quickie first. Well, I think it's going to be a quickie, but you know how that goes! Whenever that's done, it's back to my quilt. Finish what I start, you know!
Like Thelma, I've been thinking about the next quilt I want to make. I'm going to knock a couple of things off my Short List first, but I think this one will be next up on the cutting table.
It's from the book Summer Gatherings by Lisa Bongean and Carole Charles of Primitive Gatherings. The fabric is an old Judy Rothermel line. I blogged about wanting to make this in August of 2011. Think it's marinated enough by now? :)
Kathie would have this knocked out in no time flat, but it'll take me a while to make.
A few months ago someone I was chatting with via email asked me why I didn't sew more or faster, etc. That person had forgotten I work during the week. It's just the way it is in my little world for now. My goal is to retire, and that means working until then. But, gosh, won't it be fun to get up in the morning with nothing planned for the day except whatever I want to do! I can't even imagine that lifestyle, but I'm so looking forward to it!
Darlene almost inspired me to start making Schnibbles -- almost. I think I'm going to stick to my plan for this year, i.e., some larger quilts for my beds, Christmas quilts, and attacking the Short List. Maybe 2014 will be my Year of Schnibbles! Remind me of that next year, Darlene!
I have an event to go to next weekend out of town, so no sewing then. Penny will be able to accompany me. That will be fun. I think. Anyway, this weekend is crunch time!
