Red and Aqua Quilt Update #4

Okay, here’s the truth.

I stink stink STINK at doing what I say I’m gonna do. So I kinda set myself up for failure when I said I was going to make a block for this quilt every single day. I didn’t do one yesterday. There was too much chaos, not to mention last minute changes in hugely important things like which wedding dress will be worn at the ceremony, and that change instituted a whole bunch of other ones and even a late night WalMart run. So I never got the chance to sit down and sew yesterday.


This morning I was feeling so guilty about missing yesterday, that I got up and got started right away. I finished planning the blocks (turns out I may have just enough fabric after all, without adding any other fabrics) and I chain stitched thirteen pairs of squares together as the bases for the next set of blocks. I even started finishing the blocks off before it was time to go run wedding errands. I feel sort of accomplished but still a bit of a failure from yesterday, but what can ya do?

Off to rethread the bobbin and get some work done before it’s time to go running off again…pics later!

I'm a SAHM with a busy schedule and a love of too many things to count! I sew, I write, I draw, and I love to create. I'm always on the lookout for a new project idea. One other very important thing about me - my house is in a continual state of upheaval and mess. Slowly but surely I'm working through the piles and boxes, but I am still in the process, and some days it seems like it would be much easier to pack up and move!
