Lost month

Somewhere along the line, I lost an entire month. Not sure how, but since it’s been a month since my last post, it’s definitely gone. I have been busy with trade shows every weekend since the end of October, and yesterday was the last of them. I was not terrifically successful, but I did sell a couple of larger pieces, several small items, and I got a couple of side jobs as well, so overall I’m pretty pleased.

I have also been very busy trying to complete several Christmas projects. A friend’s aunt passed away last year, and her daughter (my friends cousin) asked if I could do memorial quilts for her daughters for Christmas. Of course, I was glad to help out. She sent a large duffle bag full of her mother’s pajamas, and I’ve been able to get three good sized lap quilts out of them. As most of the pajamas are knit fabrics, I treated them as I would a t-shirt quilt, and backed them all with fusible interfacing before I cut out the blocks. I bordered each block on two sides with purple fabric to tie everything together, and assembled them into a woven rectangle pattern. I’m pretty happy with how they are turning out.

I’ve also been hired to make a Frozen quilt for a little girl, and three table runners for a friend of mine. I also have a couple of projects to quilt for customers before Christmas. I had better get to it!! I fully admit to being a procrastinator, but I would rather not give myself grey hair if I can avoid it.

  1. Your lost month left me laughing…just last night I commented to a friend that I had “lost the last quarter!”…so I can fully appreciate how you’re feeling. I’m quilting like mad (after my day job) to catch up on holiday gifting, was thinking about asking Santa to delay Christmas for thirty days or so, but probably will be a no-go!
