This week I'm really wondering when people do most of their sewing if they work. Do you mainly quilt on the weekends? Do you make sure to do a bit each night? Anyone successfully integrating work, quilting, kids, cooking, etc...and still managing to exercise?
I've been trying to get a bit done each night, but then that turns from "a bit" into "a lot," and I'm up too late still sewing.
Anyway, the mental health break each night is wonderful...it serves me much better than watching TV.
I've started yet ANOTHER work-in-progress. A second charity quilt for DC Modern's 100 Quilts for Kids. (Now I'm hoping I get them finished! They may turn into Christmas donations.)
I used the wonky block tutorial links from Sewn by Leila. That took me to Quilt Dad and I'm doing his basic wonky log cabin and a large bento block for the center.
I've also spent time quilting the bunny quilt.
And working on lava flow for this week's Free Motion Quilt Along.
I felt like I had a hard time making lava paisley look like something more than paisley done sloppily. I think I need to make the first inner loop more wiggly somehow...
So that leaves all the other unfinished projects...
1.) the first charity quilt - needs a little more FMQ and binding
2.) the classroom echo quilting - more FMQ and binding
3.) the Hooterville quilt - a little more applique, then sewing the top...
I'd consider the hexie quilt hibernating :( along with any other quilts I was thinking of starting for myself. But there's more time to come, and I know I'll be wanting to sew myself through stress and difficult times or just because I'm relaxing after a good day.
Hope everyone has a good day today! I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday--check out Lee's blog at Freshly Pieced--and QED at Color Me Quilty by Pat.
