You don't get too many snow days when you homeschool. But we did today. There was no way I was driving all the way into the city for fencing lessons in this weather. So we stayed home and played instead.
I worked on my latest quilt all day. And according to my calculations I'll still be working on it this time next year...
I really, really need to work on reading the fine print on things. I picked the Buckeye Beauty pattern out of the book 101 Fabulous Rotary-Cut Quilts. I like the book because it has this cute little grading system for each pattern. One, two or three spools depending on difficulty. Seemed like a no brainer way to keep from getting in over my head. Yep, I picked a one spool pattern but failed to notice that I would need to make 520 of these no brainer blocks. It's taking FOR-EVER.
Anyhoo, I found these photos on my hard drive tonight and realized I've never shown them to you here. Since it's going to be a year or so before I get this other one done I'll show you these instead.
A quilt I made for my daughter last year.
The Tattered Pioneer quilt I made for the Engineer.
I'm hand quilting this one, I'm almost done only a few more days work on it. I've been dragging it with me everywhere on and off for a year.
A Turning Twenty I made for my stepdad.
And the very first quilt I made.
So there. Now I have a feeling of accomplishment even though I didn't finish anything today. I feel better already.
