Just a quick note to post a few pictures of my current work-in-progress's, for "Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday" link party. I have many more sitting on top of dressers, tucked away on shelves and piled onto bookshelves, but right now here's my ironing board in real time....
The main quilt I've been furiously working on is a very special gift that I don't want to show until after the recipient sees it first hand. I'm so happy with the way it's turned out so far, but still have a bit of work to do. I have the top all finished, and the colorful strips in front are part of the border. I hope I don't give away too much.
I've also got back on track with the quilt along I'm participating in. I'm doing 2 of them at once, to hopefully be finished my Christmas. Considering the time crunch and how many projects I have going right now, I made the decision to skip the "wonkification" of them, as this'll add an extra step, and right now I really need the time. Maybe I'll make a wonky quilt in 2011, but for now, I have enough tops to quilt, Christmas presents to finish, and other not-so-fun-household-things-to-do that I'm simplifying them.
As I was getting a bit overwhelmed with my things-to-do list, I took a time out to figure out what's up. I'm not usually so harried. I came to the realization that due to school vacations and sick kids, I've only had 3 out of 11 days that my kids have been in school (I honestly don't know how you quilters with little ones manage), and my husband has only been home 2 out of the last 7 weeks (this week is no exception... he's gone for work). No wonder I'm a bit stressed. Oh, and yes, blogging does take time too :-). SOOOoooo. I decided that once the holiday's are gone, I'm going to slow things down a bit... With maybe one exception, I'm also not going to take on any new projects until after that too.
So hopefully this blog will read "finished projects" very soon, and I'll have some fun stuff to show you!!
