I think it must be a character defect. I just can’t seem to control it these days.
I’m talking about doing fabric pulls and starting new projects with three already on the go and nowhere near complete. I have the Secret Sewing job, the TWX Ovarian Cancer quilt to get done by the start of May, and Sea Glass. And that doesn’t even take into account the Hat-box BM&I quilt, the Anemone ScrapHappy quilt, my embroidery, and two entire sets of F²F quilt blocks waiting to be assembled. I have never in my entire life had such a log-jam.
So I’m knuckling down to get at least the Secret Sewing quilt top completed. Not too much left to do still, but it’s meticulous work and I want to get it right. Quilting will be very straightforward and simple, so I hope to have it done in a week or two. Then I’ll have to get cracking on TWX. There are a couple of blocks still to come in, but I can certainly start sandwiching and quilting the ones I have. My lovely SIL is, she promises, happy to wait for Sea Glass, which is perhaps just as well…
Anyway, no prizes for guessing what the fabric pull is for. Yup, a pair of bunk quilts for Lizzie. Simple pieced squares, some small, some larger; dark and light blues, taupes, greys and creams and pale brownish pinks. Nice.
Now, let’s see how long I can hold out before I succumb to the urge to start pressing and cutting.
