The past two weeks have been used…mmm…in an odd manner. The last ten days I have been kind of manic in my sewing. I went away to a retreat with some members of a bee I belong to. I spent 3 days madly stitching together some gifts and charity quilts and I sewed for probably 12- 14 hours per day again. The manic sewing continued when I got home. I purchased fabric for backing, fabric for tops, and I have kept relentlessly sewing.
I put together a quilt top for a friend who is ill. I didn’t like it so I pieced another. I put together 2 tops for my brothers for Christmas. One top is done but the other isn’t. I made two charity baby quilt tops. I think that would be a count of five pieced functional quilts. AND they aren’t really quilts yet because they are only tops at this point. Is it reasonable to think I can finish 5 quilts before Christmas and have time for art???
I really diagnose my self with continued Workshop Withdrawal yet. It is the only excuse I can think of for all this mess I have just created. I have sewn with abandon and made the pile of unfinished projects HUGE in my studio. The only cure for this mess I have created is a list. I need to re-focus some of my manic energy into a reasonable and FOCUSED list. What needs to be finished first this week and what can wait?
Ugh, I hate it when I do this to myself. I take full responsibility.
And add to that fixing this boring blog. It needs color. It needs photos. A header. You get the picture, don’t you?
