SAL 19: even more blue

There’s been a lot of that around here recently…

First the big blue Doggies quilt, then the smaller blue and white one I’m making for AHQ  in many of the same fabrics (still in progress, more on that tomorrow), and finally the poor little neglected navy blue and white sampler.

Here’s where I was last time with that:

And here is the pathetically small progress I’ve made. Quilting is taking priority over all other handwork at this point, and I’m sorry to say it shows.

As always, it’s worth your while visiting the other SAL stitchers, who have, I’m sure, been much more industrious than I… Don’t forget about the difference in time zones; you’ll need to drop in a bit later to give them a chance to get their posts up.

    Your quilts are and sometimes something else has to give. Progress however is progress however small and it’s all good.

    Was to keep on keeping on like a bird that flew
    Tangled up in blue.” 🙂

    Small progress is better than no progress. You have been rather busy on other things.

      This is true, but in these situations I’m my own worst enemy! I have no volume control when it comes to getting something done. It always has to be NOW!
      Sadly, while I’m definitely getting older, I don’t also seem to be getting wiser…

    Any progress is good progress – at least that’s what I keep telling myself 😉

      I know it’s true, but I just can’t seem to help myself. Crazy really, because I’m the only one with any expectations of how much work I should actually do! Must…. relax….. more….

    It’s easy to be your own worst enemy sometimes. I was getting stressed last week because I couldn’t get on with stuff as my Mum was visiting but, honestly, what’s more important? Sometimes you just have to stop having such high expectations of yourself.

    Including some blue language I imagine with all the set square flinging around you were doing earlier!

  8. you have only got 2 hands Kate and there are only 24 hours in a day…..and the quilts are soooo pretty and usefull for others !!

  9. I don’t really care what you post about or how much you get done…..gardening, baking, quilting, cross stitch. It’s all lovely to read about 🙂

    Well, at least you did something 🙂 Better than nothing!

    It doesn’t matter as long as you’re not sitting idle. You can only do one thing at the time. I seem to always have 3 or 4 things going at the same time. Sometimes that’s not can cause stress. Add I complete my UFO’S I’m determined to work on one project at the time. On Saturday I altered a dressdid 10 strip blocks and worded on the quilt in the hoop. Quilting causes one to loose track of time, it’s like when your hands start to stitch they take on a mind of their own.
    You do a great job Kate, so don’t beady yourself up.
