Last night was the Friday Night Sew-In for January, and as usual, I almost missed it, but got in on it just in the nick of time!
I had big ideas about getting a lot done, but I was so tired, it was like I was moving in slow motion.
I tried to start at 6:00, but didn’t really get started until 6:30. Then I felt like I was all thumbs, and really, I can’t tell you much about my sewing time last night. I don’t even remember what time I quit sewing.
I know I got a couple quilt tops a bit further along, but those two I can’t show you because they don’t belong to me. I also loaded the next customer quilt on the longarm.
BUT . . . I also finally got to make a block for myself! My first block of the year for myself (yes, I’m off to a late start).
This is our guild exchange block for January. Sandra provided the center square, and we were to frame it into a 12″ block and will bring them all back to our February meeting.
I can hardly believe the meeting isn’t until February 11, and I already have my block done. The trick will be still being able to find the block on the 11th when it’s time to go to the meeting!
I’m slowly getting a tidget more organized and able to sew a little more comfortably every day. Having resigned myself to the fact that it’s going to be awhile before my upstairs studio is finished and ready to move into, I’m trying to make the downstairs a bit more convenient to work in for now. Every day I find a few more things I need and get a bit more organized. And none too soon, as I have lots of deadlines coming up.
Did you sew last night? What did you manage to get done? There were quite a few involved in the Sew-In. You can click over to Heidi’s blog and check them all out.
