Motivation Friday

Friday, January 30, 2009
Instead of Motivation Friday I may have to change this to "Fess Up Friday" if I don't stay on track better!

This week I finished quilting Jane's Star. I haven't loaded another quilted, but Ken and I did raise the rollers, so I can work on that goal. My back has been bothering me, so I haven't stood to trim the Christmas Courthouse Steps, maybe tonight, with the help of a little tylenol! And now that I'm not using the rollers to quilt, I can use them to put the borders on the D9P! (I use them to lay the quilt and measure borders, works really good!)

But I did get something else done, I put together enough of those little blue 4-patches to make a top. What do you think? I did it in a total random order, just started with the piles and sewed.



Now those little squares finish to 1", so with borders the quilt will be 40x50", about right for a baby quilt. And since I made enough blocks for three more, I may have enough for a few babies!

I need lots of Motivation.... too much to do, to little time to get it done. I'm jealous of all that you DO get done. Maybe when I retire in 10 years ... meanwhile I'll just drool over what you do!!

I love the quilt. My boss bought me a pair of Crocs to wear while standing at my quilt frame. I have a lot of arthritis in my lower back. They are amazing no back pain after standing a long time. Check it out - www.crocs.com

That is so pretty! It reminds me of those beaded curtains from the 60s--little jewels and beads dangling around.

I like this one a lot!

I really like the blue and white. You can't go wrong with those colours. It gets me thinking of more ways to use up my stash.

Looking good...blue and white are a timeless color combo!

I wear Crocs around the house, too as my slippers. as a matter of fact, when I quilted in my tennies...my back ached something fierce!
