Work has been very tough on my schedule lately, but I’m back to writing again and have accomplished a lot in the last few days. I’ve wanted to start… okay, I’ve been dying to start a couple of new queen size quilts that I’ve already bought the fabric for. After telling Kay about this, she not so politely said that I really needed to finish my other projects before starting on new ones.

I needed to start and finish the hand quilting on the Amish mini quilt and then bind it. I have another Sage Garden quilt that needs to go out to the long arm quilter after I sew the sashing on it and get the backing sewn together. But what I really wanted to do was to start the two new quilts that I had in mind.

With all of those unfinished projects hanging over my head, I really needed to finish them before I started my new projects. I’m eating my veggies now in anticipation of desert.
