It was so fun to get so much feedback yesterday on what quilt project you all would have me work on. I have to laugh at myself and tell you a bit about me.
Back in the day when I was in high school and college and had to study, I was pretty disciplined with myself. I had a set time when I studied or worked on my term projects. However, if my room was untidy, I had to clean it up first before I allowed myself to sit down and do my work. I was OCD enough that anything amiss in my environment was a distraction and I had to take care of it before buckling down to anything else. Forget about skipping out on my study session to hang out with friends or otherwise fool around. Responsibilities first, then I could focus on the next thing.
My daughter's quilt for her friend is kind of like that. I have other things I want/need to be working on, but I just have to get this one out of the way before I move on. Don't misunderstand: I really am enjoying making this quilt, which is a bit different than the things I usually work on. And I will be thrilled to have participated in making something that someone special will enjoy. I have just over half the blocks done and hope to finish all of them this week. Then she can help me sew the rows together and cut out the border fabric. This project will be finished over the next week or so and then...
I will move on to Jacob's Ladder!
