The ladies who wanted to put the binding on are hoping to get them all finished before the holidays hit. I work backwards. I do most of my work during the holidays. One day I will be retired and have all the time in the world to quilt.
I just found out that Carla and the lady who is in charge of these Quilts of Valor are off having a great time at a Quilt Retreat, while I am home slaving away :) One day I will sign up for a quilt retreat too and see what all the fun is about. Until then, I will have to retreat into my messy sewing room and dig my way out. I just brought home a whole car load of fabric and I need to sort through it. I tell you, I get a phone call a couple times a month from someone cleaning out and donating fabric. I need to work quicker. But, I justify collecting for now, thinking that in the not so distant future, I will be retired (maybe 15 years from now) and have 10 hours a day to sew, sew, sew! Hopefully my health holds up and my quilting machines do too.
