I'm totally in need of a knitting fix ... some crochet even ... just a little action on second sock for Nadie ... really ... just for a minute or two.
Let me spell it out for you:
Q-U-I-L-T---S-H-O-W --- less than 3 weeks away ---'to do' list not getting any shorter.
I have to:
- bind 3 sides of a queen sized quilt
- piece, quilt and bind my thingy for the challenge [ currently a pile of blocks and an idea]
- finish HAND quilting and bind the japanese quilt
...do you know how long it takes just to hand sew 600" of binding [ yep that's the total for the 3 quilts ] six hundred inches ... 50 flipping feet of it ...oh bloody hell...must sew faster... must sew faster.
*Insert nervous breakdown here*
Before I was just guestimating ... now I've measured and the grand total, counting the hanging casings is 672" or 56 '. On the plus side ... I've finished the QS deconstructed Log Cabin.
The blocks for the challenge quilt have been laid out, rearranged, rearranged again...and again ...and ...
I've started sewing them together. As well as that, I've stencilled a quote from william Blake onto the top border with Shiva antique gold paintstik. All of which tells you very little about what I'm up to. Not having access to my photos is driving me bonkers.
