Quilting has really been taking a back seat to schoolwork recently, which isn’t a surprise, but is a bit sad: I miss having the time to sit down and work on something and really lose myself in the process. Instead I have to keep an eye on the clock, to be sure my break doesn’t run longer than planned.
In any case, given my workload, my goals for the first quarter of the 2013 Finish-A-Long were … well … let’s call them ambitious. That sounds better than “insanely unrealistic,” right? (These were my initial goals for the first quarter of 2013.)
Two months into the first quarter of 2013, my more realistic goals are:
1) Finish the Scrappy Trip quilt top and backing and send it off to be professionally quilted, because it’s way too big for my machine at home.
2) Work on one other quilt top: New Wave or Pinwheels and Postage Stamps or the 2012 Block of the Month. Whatever looks like fun.
