Some of my quilting partners in crime have been complaining that they haven't seen a post about quilts from me in a coons age. Come on ya'll - it hasn't been that long! Unlike many of you, I haven't been able to churn out those finished projects. There must be a secret to it that ya'll aren't telling me.
I have my reasons though. OK - excuses. Its all in your perception. Here's the list. I'm good at making lists.
~I need sleep and you don't want to be around me if I don't get it. Heck, I don't want to be around me if I don't get it and I'm thinking that all of ya'll who are whipping out these fabulous quilts are not sleeping.
~I've been in Texas for a couple of weeks.
~I'm missing my kid. It's much too quiet around here. Yesterday while I was in town running errands I picked up some odds and ends to put together a care package for her.
~I am mowing. And mowing. And mowing some more.There are about 5 acres that constantly need mowing and weed eating around here. The push mower and I are forming an intense relationship this summer.
~I am trying to keep my garden alive and its a battle. 100+ afternoons are taking its toll and I am bracing for the return of the winds later this week. The tomato worms and I are waging war as well.
So, in the heat of the day here's what I'm currently working on:
Yes, its another project. And no, I have not completed the Texas Log Cabin quilt. Nor is the horse quilt finished. And the Hexagon quilt is still in pieces too. I guess that makes me a flighty quilter. But hey, at least I'm honest and owning up to my flighty-ness.
I couldn't help it. The 30's prints I bought just kept hollering that they needed to be a quilt...NOW. Impatient little things.
I should promise you that I won't start another project until I have completed one, but I'm not making any statements that may incriminate me - I'm going to plead the 5th. Last time I checked, I still had the freedom to do that.
