Well, things didn't go as planned during last night's Friday Night Sew-In. I wanted to start quilting my George Schnibble.
It was on the frame. I'd practiced on the whiteboard for a few days. I thought I was good to go.......then I lost it. I'd just couldn't get it back. Do you know what I mean? I had lost the rhythm of that quilt motif in my head and I just couldn't make my hands go that way anymore.
|On the frame and ready to go.....or not?|
Maybe I had practiced too much? Or maybe I had psyched myself out? I'm really not sure. I gave it a go anyway and I was sorry I did. I ended up spending a good bit of time unsewing last night instead of sewing. The Friday Night UnSew-In is what went on at my house!
Eventually, once I picked out all of the quilting stitches, I moved to another project. Quilting George will just have to wait for another day. There are a few other projects on my list..........just a few........

Notice that this book is so well loved that the pages are falling out!
Maybe I need to get it spiral bound at the copy store.
Has anyone ever done that to a quilt book?
I decided it was time to work on the July Schnibble. The end of the month is coming up quickly. Choosing any Schnibble pattern I wanted slowed me down! Don't get me wrong, I love that we have so many wonderful options, but that itself was my problem! What to choose? I had been tossing a few patterns around in my head.....that's a hint......I made my final decision and I began to sort and cut.
|This is a hint too. It's a bit of a stretch, but it might help.|
Do you know which one I chose? If you are joining in this month, which one are you doing? I'd better get going on it. August is just around the corner!
