It's not that I'm giving up quilting, and it's not that the sewing studio is so cluttered that I can't reach the machine (though that isn't far from the truth!). It's a couple of other things: First, I'm still feeling glow-y and relaxed from our wonderful trip, and don't feel driven to spend every possible moment sewing. Second, I've been spending a significant amount of time at blurb which I sort of discovered through Julie, who published a lovely book of her haiku quilts there. I'm editing the blog posts about my trip and turning them into a keepsake book. It was that important of a trip. The editing takes a lot of time; I had just about finished and realized that I wanted my book to be a different size, and had to start over. So that is what has been keeping me busy during my expendable time.
But Summer Hours began today (Hallelujah!). For the next nine weeks I'll be working from 8-1 instead of 7:30-4 and I know I'm going to want to sew. Shortly before going away, I bought this pattern and am eager to dive into it. Now the situation is getting complicated because I just discovered Bounce, by Miss Rosie, and think I really, really, need to do something about it. I've got a giant Rubbermaid tub full of batiks and a bolt of Kona black. Each of these quilts would be gorgeous in those fabrics.
Where should I start?????
