I have been travelling for work most of this week. And it has been awesome. But I miss my family and my sewing a lot. In my last post I talked a pretty big game about getting lots of WIPs done. I was going to conquer all and conquer it immediately. Yes, not so much.
I have transitioned from being a GO GO GO quilter on the weekends to balancing with hanging out with the fam, playing MarioKart, and getting out of the house. Much more healthy for my mental state, but I get so much less done.
Last weekend I got this top done for a project linus quilt and got it basted. (I HATE BASTING SO MUCH I MEAN FOR REALS HATE) It wasn’t as much as I planned to get done, but I do love the top after spending time to contemplate what would work best. Because of the color scheme and improv-y parts, I decide to make it big enough for a kid/teenager instead of a baby quilt because I think it will be more appreciated. It includes 4 orphan blocks, several of the 1/2 square triangles left over from this quilt, and some scraps and stash I was happy to use up. Something exhilariting in making a dent in all of the glorious fabric I have. A lot of this fabric I was not sure I loved, but I love it all in this quilt top.
This weekend I will quilt and bind it. And maybe that is all I will get done and that is ok. I am setting new, more reasonable goals. One Project Linus quilt, finishing one WIP per month and then I will allow myself to work on a “new” project.
Find the gray. Find the gray. Find the gray.
