It's been a couple of weeks since I've felt like blogging. Things just seem to pile up on me, and if I can't do it on my phone, then it doesn't get done.
Health issues keep coming up. I called my doctor and had a long conversation with him last week. One specialist that he sent me to isn't a good fit. He said he would step in and take control of these additional tests, etc. It sucks getting old!
I pulled out a quilt this morning that needed a minor fix. It didn't take but an hour so I don't know why I've put it aside for so long. On to the next one that needs a fix. On this one I managed to screw up an inner border and didn't realize it until I pulled it out to get to a quilter. It's been just sitting for a few years. I'm going to work on that one today. It's a bright and happy Christmas quilt that I know I'll be happy to have done come December.
There are so many new quilts that I want to start, but I think it's smart to first get these off to be quilted. There are maybe five or six. I need to take inventory. There may be more. No time like the present to just do it.
Market is in a couple of weeks and I can't wait to see what is shown there. Carrie at Miss Rosie has been teasing everyone on Instagram with peeks at her new quilts. I know there will be lots of fabulous fabric unveiled, but, honestly, I'm more interested in patterns at this point. I have a feeling there will be some good ones from Me & My Sister, too. There's a Minick & Simpson pattern I want to make from their new line when that hits the stores. I'm always interested to see what Jaybird and V and Co. come up with.
The one project I will dig into is something that will use up those low volumes I've been collecting. I'm thinking about doing the Burgoyne Surrounded low volume quilt that a lot of you did a few months back. Of course, something else may pop up that I'd rather make. I need to stay focused here. Once this stack is off to the quilter, then I'll make the decision.
I've been having horrible internet issues. The provider has let me, and the others in this condo group, down for the past couple of years. Workers are digging outside my front door now, and when I asked, they said they were laying new lines for Vios (?). Penny doesn't like them out there at all! I need to check with the management office to see what's going on. Anything will be an improvement! I can't wait to retire and move away from being a renter. It was a wise decision not to buy again after I sold my house, but the wait for retirement is going so slowly. That beautiful quilting studio is waiting for me!
