I did finally catch up on sleep. The 3 days I did work this week were kind of a blur, as I had 800 emails waiting for me. I was able to narrow that down to about 265 that needed my attention and I am going through those more slowly, topic by topic. It will all come together. I am very happy that this week is a 4 day work week as well.
I did have a finish in the quilty realm. I was like #3 on the queen's list, so I was due for one.
Celtic Solstice was a Bonnie Hunter Quiltville mystery in 2013. Bonnie starts her mystery on Black Friday and it runs through the New Year, which for many of us provides a focal point of sanity and escape during what many of us call the silly season. This one is 11 by 129 and busts 20.72 yards of stash. Yes, it is very large. And it's now on my bed. It also has a few errors in it but if you can't find them, I'm not telling. I have 5 quilts in mind for my bed and this one is #2.
I have a lot of other quilty projects underway and Ted has commissioned me to make a baby quilt for a co-worker. (FYI only Kim and Ted are allowed to commission me. Don't get any ideas.) Right now, I am all about enjoying the process. Each of the items I have on my list are things I am looking forward to working on. Nothing is drudgery.
Here's the list:
Girl baby quilt for Ted
Blue split 9 patch
Baby Bugs II quilt
Mini Roman Stripe
That's 10 different things. Some are seriously just an idea, like that first one. I have no idea what to do. I was at a quilter's estate sale on Friday and I scored a backing, so there's a start. Some are small and have great senses of accomplishment when completed. Some are very detailed, like the mini Roman stripe, and if I get one set of 10 blocks done, it's a victory. We are calling this micro-progress "Just One Thing" in the Stashbusters world.
Knitting wise, I totally flunked out of Loopy Academy second semester Freshman year. I plan to double up next semester to get back on track. Pictures of the epic failures and their replacement projects will happen as the semester evolves.
Right now we are in Camp Loopy. I need to finish up the June project. I'm on the toe of one sock and need to do the foot and toe of the other. Tight, but doable if I focus.
The garden loved the rain but it needs weeding.
And I think that's it.
