And back to reality……..

 Well, the holiday break ends for me after today. It's back to the lesson teaching schedule tomorrow. That went super fast. And my to do list?……..hahahah It's still a mile long, although I did get to scratch some things off of the list. I always seem to think I will have more time than I do. As if my entire time would be spent alone in my sewing studio. Pipe dreams. We did have a beautiful break, however. Once my last playing job was done Christmas Eve we spent some time lounging around in our pjs for some time. (a few days) ha! I adore those days when it is off time and it is cold outside and we can shower and put the jammies back on. Yep. That's me. Thank God the dh doesn't have a problem with that. ;0)

  I was able to get some sewing done in between family visits and visiting friends. I finished the other baby quilt I was working on. My quilt machine resides in our garage. We did enclose it, but it isn't exactly living space. It is clean enough to quilt a white quilt but it is indeed not spacious. There are other garagey items still in it as well as my space that we carved out. My dream is to have a large studio in the house at some point…but that will most likely require moving. I have a heater but this is what it looks like on a cold day.

   I have no idea what that spill on it is. Probably coffee……looks like it just got added to my immediate to do list. Blech. What IS that? So you can see I have to REALLY want to quilt to be out there. And I DO!  I do!!  :0)   Anyway, here is the quilt in progress and then finished before binding…..I don't think I got a picture of it with the binding on before it went to be given to the new baby. Darn it! 

   My swoon top is also nearing completion. I love this fabric so very much. I had no idea I had such a love of romantic fabrics deep inside me. I usually go for the brighter batiks and prints. Who knew? Now I can't get enough. I have been looking through florals like a fiend now. And Civil War prints. What the heck?

   I will be adding some of the pinwheels as corner stones in the sashing most likely or even as sashings maybe. I am not sure. Then around the quilt as I find I like. We will see what it finally ends up as I go. You can see the back of my poor Bali Wedding Star above it. I really need to put that on the machine and get it quilted. It is earmarked for our bed……but it may be next season before it gets there. heh And the baby quilt is peeking out underneath……I need several design walls……..or maybe just some focus. Yeah, that's it. Focus. 
  How about you? Do you normally have multiple projects going at any given time? I'd love to hear from anyone out there. :0) I hope you are all off to a creative and happy healthy New Year!!!!
