So for my quilty progress:
Last weeks Goal was : Goal #1: Keep sewing on Judy L's quilt project
And I DID!! I did not make the deadline of June 6th - but I have at least gotten a top done... without borders. I notice that most of my quilts have just plain borders, and I wonder why. I think that maybe I am so excited to be done, that I just want it done. But not this time. I am going to follow Judy's instructions and put a pieced border on... I even have the strips cut to prove it!
Because I have been driving more than quilting this week I have been pondering my quilting life, my quilting process and my "to do" ( or want to do) list.
I have decided that I need to get a plan of action down, as I am finding that I am leaving too many projects unfinished. And too many tops unquilted, which doesn't make sense.... I am a longarm quilter - what is up with that?
One of my biggest thoughts has been - maybe I need to be a one quilt at a time quilter. How many people do this? Or do they have lots of quilts going on and manage to not forget them? And if so, how???? Hmm....
and just to prove that things can get exciting around here.... look what I found outside my door. I had to load some things in the car. Got the load, walked outside, stepped off the step, stepped over the snake, loaded the car and then realized that I had stepped OVER a snake and did what any good girl would do.... I screamed!!! and the snake didn't move!
Wrangler Man saved me, and it was only a hognosed snake. But I explained to the snake that no matter that he is not dangerous - he is not allowed to play near my house.....
OH~~ And because the snake scared me I almost forgot - next weeks goals.
#1: Finish Judy L's Quilt of Valor sew Along ( http://www.patchworktimes.com/)
