In no particular order I have the following projects that are screaming for my attention:
- Finish cleaning the studio (there really isn't much left to do!)
- U is for Unicorn Quilt (borders have been hanging on the design wall for over a month)
- Hexagon Quilt (it sits on the frame, sad, alone, untouched since January)
- My Tweets Quilt (this is a block of the month that I am a month behind on)
- Cathedral Windows Quilt (currently getting my attention each evening)
- Leafy Log Cabin Quilt (half cut, almost all of first half sewn together)
- Three Arches Quilt (needs embellishing)
When I get home, I just don't feel like sitting and sewing. What do I do instead though? I sit at the computer!!! Then I get my son at school. Soon after that it is time to start supper. After supper I don't feel like going in the studio either. This will NOT do!!!
I kinda know why I don't like working on some of the projects right now. The U is for Unicorn is at an intensely, hard, intricate, major, time consuming, stage right now. I just am not looking forward to finishing up the borders.
The Hexagon Quilt is being hand quilted. It is very very time consuming and is a king size quilt. Just to set up to stitch takes time. It cannot sit out where I do most of my hand work, because the cats want to use it for a bed. This means I have to wrestle it back into the studio again, when done. It seems like a lot of work to do for just an hour of hand work.
I am waiting for the next block for the My Tweets quilt. Then I will do the two of them at the same time. It really isn't a problem, other than I would rather work on it than any of the other projects!
Cathedral Windows is the same. I work on it, in between the My Tweets.
I am not sure why I haven't proceeded on the Leafy Log Cabin quilt. It is made from pre-cut strips, so half the cutting is already done! And the Three Arches quilt is just hanging there. I want to embellish it more, but have not been inspired as to how.
The studio...am I avoiding finishing the studio so I can continue to avoid sewing? If so, why??? I did clear a spot around the machine and sewed up a tote for my yoga mat yesterday. That took less than thirty minutes to do and turned out great!
I am sure I will figure it out soon enough. It might be that I just need to get that balance between life outside the house and life inside the house, well, balanced! In the meantime, I will read Jaye's blog, listen to Sandy's podcast, and work on my quilt guild newsletter and block of the month patterns for it. At least that keeps me in the neighborhood of quilters and quilting. :)
