I've been unhappy lately because I haven't been able to get into my sewing room as much as I would like. A full time job, which has been requiring 2 evenings of my time every week in addition to the regular 40 hours, has taken a big chunk out of both my time and energy. This isn't likely to change anytime soon, so I hope to adjust my expectations and goals to match reality. Then I should be less annoyed when I don't get time in the sewing room during the week.
So, weekends will be my sewing time - some portion of them, anyway. Have to allocate time to spend with the kiddos, too. It won't be much longer before they don't want anything to do with Mom and have their own plans for the whole weekend. This means that Wednesday accountability reports won't fit nicely into my schedule - I don't get a chance to crunch on Monday/Tuesday to make sure I have something to report :)
new project". Some might wonder how that can happen, but I suspect most quilters can understand. That quilt is now ready for quilting - but that means there wasn't a whole lot of progress on the rest of my UFOs this week.
Next week is my guild meeting. I have a number of quilties in progress, and I'd love to have them ready to take with me, so they can be donated this month. So, I will see how many of those I can finish up this weekend. Let's see if I can focus on quilting, rather than piecing, for a week. My goals:
yellow celtic hearts (just needs binding)
red celtic hearts (needs quilting)
blue celtic hearts (a stretch - this top isn't done yet, so it's the bottom of the priority list)
tic-tac-toe (needs quilting)
sleight of hand (needs quilting)
