I planned to spend this afternoon in the studio. I knew I would come back from the quilt show full of inspiration and would be itching to quilt.
After I had followed up on some lovely blog comments and email messages, I felt torn about what to do next: play with the pressure foot and rulers I bought at the show to do ruler work? Baste the big broken dishes rainbow scrap quilt and start quilting it (with threads acquired for that purpose at the show)? Finish the thread work cat? Something else? Something New? Make more January blocks for the Block Lotto? Make the February blocks and get the pattern written for the sneak peek next week?
I decided to retreat to the den, pull out the flannel zig-zag quilt, stitch down a bit more of the binding and think about it.
I made more progress toward finishing this old UFO and I came downstairs feeling more centered and equipped with a plan for my afternoon. Since any progress is progress, I'm joining the WIPs be Gone list on a Quilting Reader's Garden.
Kathy asked for a show of hands for Slow Sunday Stitching today ... here's mine, wearing the tailor's thimble which is my choice for hand sewing. I will return to this binding later today ... the end is in sight and I'd love to be putting this snuggly quilt on the bed soon.
