I seen to have overdone starting projects and somehow missed finishing anything. It's time to get a grip and smarten up! And any other rousing statements I can think of. I have a real fellow feeling for the dog in UP who keeps getting distracted and shouting "Squirrel!" It's time to focus.
Fortunately I've got a quilt retreat this weekend, so I'm planning to finish a couple of things there.
I have two cute advent calendars from Spoonflower to make for the GDs. We are looking into an alternative to candy - one has little tree ornaments, the other makes bunting. They have to arrive before December 1st. Top of the list.
Next up, a baby quilt for a friend. It's a little girl, not yet born. I plan to send the quilt as soon as I can though. It's fun to have some new things early. She is a second child, and her parents have just moved house, so everyone is very busy. Should be a good time to get a quilt.
I spent a whole day trying layouts for my Hunter Stars. Originally I planned the traditional layout:
Many layouts later, I thought this looked nice:
Then on Monday morning, another brainstorm, and this is how it looks now:
Of course, there are problems. The second layout just needed triangles sewn dark to dark and light to light. I sewed about 50. They'll all have to come apart. Sigh. I've done the math, so I know how many squares of each colour I will need, and so the colour order may also need adjustment. I'll keep plugging away at this, no time constraint really.
More about my other WIPs in my next post. I need some coffee!
Till next time
