This is the quilt I'm working on for myself. I started it about a month ago. Here it sits, on the design wall. I haven't found the time or motivation to finish it. I have the border and backing fabric and I love the design and fabric, so why won't I finish it?
Here is the second quilt. I was starting to clean my sewing room yesterday, found the blocks, sewed them all together yesterday, quilted it today. Why can I work on a mindless project like this in less than 24 hours and not finish something for myself? I've made quite a few quilts for others while my quilt hangs on the wall with no finish in sight. I'm not exactly sure what my problem is. I think I need someone to come over and kick me to make me finish that quilt.
Now, with the need for quilts in the Philippines, I can see my project getting pushed even further out of the way. Maybe if I pin it all together and sit it by the sewing machine, I can work on it inbetween other things.
Tomorrow is Stockings for Soldiers. I've contacted three local TV news stations and the two local newspapers. Let's see if anyone shows up to cover the good things high school students do. Hopefully there will be no tragedies tomorrow and it will be a slow news day. Wouldn't it be grand to have all five come over! There are expected to be over 50 kids coming. It's going to be a crazy afternoon.
