I don't know what's going on over here. I spent another week practising quilt avoidance and with about 5 weeks until the end of the year multiple quilt finishes are looking less and less likely. I'm still hopeful of knocking off a couple of quilts, but beyond that I think I'm stuffed. So my question is: Do I admit defeat here and now or go for the big stressful effort as I dash to the end of the year ?
It's not all doom and gloom . I have finished stuff. Just not the stuff I need to finish, which makes me feel like a slacker.
Miss P 's Pyjamas got a waistband.
Little P's Christmas stocking got finished. All it needed was a loop and a button ...it's been sitting there for months ...
I started a cushion to match my Dresden quilt
And I made a table runner for my Christmas breakfast table...
I did manage to stitch in the ditch this week in the centre of my Blue and Brown quilt (that quilt still needs a snappy name ) But I also spent some considerable time un-sewing all the previous scallopy quilting I had done because I decided I hated it. And with the quilting I'm now doing I'm going to have to bury about a billion thread ends which I've never done before and the thought is making me slightly sick.
I'm still studiously avoiding this
octopus monkey is firmly ensconced in a plastic bag where I am hoping it will suffocate.
To see people that have actually achieved their goals and have not sat round twiddling their thumbs and practising quilt avoidance go on over to Kate's for a looky loo.
If I don't find some quilting mojo soon I make take up ceramics.
