By the end of the retreat, most everyone had at least two finished tops to show . . many had more. I had one and all I had done was sew rows together. I visited! I visited a lot! As I told the retreaters . . I sew alone every day so being there with folks to talk to was a treat for me. And, you know I love to talk! 🙂
Today as I returned to the sewing room, I realized that I’m truly a sewing slug! I’ll sew really good when I have a deadline to meet but otherwise, I waste more time than anyone I know. I came up with a plan. I’ll do progress reports in the evenings and show what I started with each morning and what I ended with each evening. I’m not going to date the reports and some days there won’t be reports (if I didn’t sew!) so I’m just going to number them. Here we are on about day 51 of the year and this is Report #1. Wonder how many I’ll do this year . . at last two! 🙂 I do better when I’m accountable and knowing I have to report my progress might help me work better. I have a lot of quilts to make and a lot of stash to use!
The first photo (start of the day) in each day’s report will be the same photo I ended with in the previous day’s post. Make sense? Today I started out with the same thing that was on my design wall:
It was a day of making silly mistakes but here’s what I ended with:
