Weekend Fun

Have you ever started and stopped so often on a project that you felt like for every step forward, you took two steps back?  That is how my weekend felt while trying to get some of my work finished.  It didn’t help that I was also doing some IT work from home as well this weekend.

I did accomplish a lot of what I set out to do, but as I was struggling to finish everything on my unfinished list, I lost my way (became disinterested) in them.  This isn’t because they weren’t interesting projects, they just went wrong and at the time I didn’t have the energy to correct them.

Last night I started again with a full head of steam on some fabric that I wanted to do something special with.  Wouldn’t you know it, I (once again!!) failed to set the stitch to ¼” and the square came out all wonky.  I LOVED the look that I will get once I get it worked out, but fell into a funk and had to put everything away for the night.

The highlight of the weekend though was that I’ve finished the Amish mini quilt, the spool of dreams is quilted and just needs the binding now, and the nursery quilt is ready for the long arm.  Hopefully this week will be better for getting things done right the first time and keeping up with my writing.  Happy Quilting everyone!!
