January 2, 2011



The Ice has Been Broken

Every January I have this period of funk...where I sit and don't do anything.  I don't sew...although I dream about it...so I think that counts as a sewing activity.  I don't shop for fabric...although I think about it so that counts except on stash busters.  And this lasts for approximately 2 to 3 weeks...longest period was a month I seriously started to worry about me that year.  OH and then the year that I had my shoulder operated on right after the New Year...wow that year it was a couple of months...badddd year!

Ok so back to 2011...(which I like typing 2011 much better than 2010) I loaded up one of our SQA casa quilts thinking I'd wait until tomorrow... cleaned up the quilter...he sure gets dusty (I never did name him maybe that would be a cute name) and did the row of basting to hold the quilt/batting/backing together.  Then thought...ok 1 row...just to see if I like the loopies on it.  Worked well - so I did another row...and another and WOW it's done! 
I've loaded the backing for the next casa but I have to stitch a batting together.  So I think that one will be on tomorrow's list. 
I need to figure out how to put a UFO/MIA/CRS list to the side here...so I can list my 42 UFO/ my 2 MIA / and my 2 CRS ones... and ONE FINISH!  the first of the new year....2011

Wow, when you get moving, you go! (CASA is such a great cause. We have it in OK, too.)

Love this quilt! And love that you aren't going to get into that funk this year!
