I had really high hopes that I’d get to quilt one of my own quilts last month. I’m not sure why, since the entire month was chock full of deadlines, and I’m still running behind on the customer backlog. What was I thinking?
No time to quilt anything of my own, as usual. But one of these days!
There are only two lonely numbers left to choose this year from my list of 12, and for me this month, it’s #3.
I made this quilt from a tutorial by Amber at A Little Bit Biased. I finished the top a long time ago, and it’s been languishing in the “to be quilted” pile ever since.
I LOVE this quilt, and I do want to get it finished soon; I’ll have to see if I can squeeze in a quilt of my own this month!
If not, look out December! I’m scrambling to get caught up on the customer stuff during November, so that I’ll indeed have some time to do a few things for myself before the end of the year — not just quilting things, but house things as well (the remodel has come to a screeching halt because I have no time to paint) — December will be a month of me catching up on “me stuff”, I hope — and slowing down a little for the holidays, too. My friends keep telling me: Stress kills!
If I can manage to fit this one in this month, it’ll be one less I’ll feel obligated to get done in December, though, right? And I have yet to finish any of the 12 projects on my Procrastination list this year, although I have moved some of them further along. I need to do better next year, that’s for sure (or make a different list — haha)! I’m actually anxious to see what I can yet get done this year, and already thinking ahead to next year’s list!
What project will YOU be working on this month that you’ve had on the back burner for way too long? We still have 59 days left in this year — lots of time to accomplish great things!
