I would start a project , maybe a second one but no more than that and finish them. By hand, piecing and quilting. And those who know me, know that I don't make small quilts 90% of the time 60x84" is the norm for the kids and 80" square is the minimum for a coverlet on our bed.
So today I was minding my own business - looking for some solids to cut for Amish Tumbling blocks as my piecing project for vacation.And a container fell off the shelf full of Diamond Strings Well I need at least another 10 blocks and I'm bored with strings, they make such a mess so I did a few rows including sashing- black cause it frames it so well. Now I need to make more blocks and figure what color I want the cornerstones and whether I want to dye some bright color for my inner border. Too much detail
:( So I started putting things away and found more strips for binding on my pineapple blossom and I found another 6 blocks of another project I was doing ( top secret till top is finished- maybe tomorrow :D ) But I don't want a plain backing for this one so I think I'm going to order a fatback for it but not sure of the color. And I'm toying with silk or wool for a batting. But I want them tomorrow not when I get back from vacation :(. I was informed that ALL of this mess needs to be cleaned up before we leave- fat chance - well maybe if I stop playing for awhile. But I did put all my embroidery threads away and plan on cleaning the machine tonight again and see if maybe it will play nice for a day or two.
SO maybe I should stop playing on the computer and get something done....like the binding on pineapple blossom. Graduation party is the Saturday after we get back.
So, I never got the area cleaned but I have a new flimsy :)
