Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

Slow Progress....

...which is better than no progress, of course.

I'd been looking forward to a good session on the machine this evening, and I completed the daisy chains on the inner border, and along half of one of the two sashing strips.

It wasn't the jolliest of sessions, though, and I stopped after an hour - the top thread broke a couple of times, which was a pain; the discussion show on the radio was particularly irritating; and Domino cat was mooching about intent on trouble, 'up to stuff' which needed me to keep an eye on. 

It's all about perceptions, though, isn't it?  I wouldn't feel so sour about the short session if I hadn't been looking forward to it so - if this had been an hour grabbed on the hoof between other jobs, I would have been delighted at my progress!

Onwards and upwards - (and whisper it quietly), but I should have a spare hour tomorrow evening to sew too...


  1. We all have times when the sewing machine seems to gather dust without us (Bag end is a prime example!)

    Leaving everything out - as much as the cats will permit - does help because then you can snatch the odd 10 minutes here and there.

  2. I like to keep everything out/ready as you suggest, Bilbo - and as long as I remember to pull the door firmly closed behind me (not guaranteed by any stretch!), I don't get sneaky visitors enjoying the comfort of the half quilted item/fabric box!
