Catch Me If You Can-
the first block in Barbara Brackman's Civil War series.
It is so hard to decide which of the many new projects offered in blogland to do!
I've joined Christine's doll quilt exchange and look forward to getting assigned my exchange partner soon.
Next choice is Lori's doll quilt sew along and it is small, just like I like em!
Then there is Madame Samm's mug rug contest, and it has prizes!
Of course, there are all the other ongoing projects out there as well.
Just too many quilts and sew little time!
So after the last affront to my dignity I could stand today...
which is worse??--mammogram, pap smear or the annual all over skin check by a dermatologist with magnifying glasses on!...
all of which I have put myself through this last month...
I made a decision.
I will only add the Civil War Quilts project to my commitments.
It is 52 blocks over 52 weeks.
I think I can handle that.
And besides, I have a use for the end product.
I have been wanting to make a donation quilt for the Quilts of Valor, and this will be perfect for it.
So my colors are chosen--red, grey/white, and blue.
I may decide to join Lori once I get a handle on all the things I have cooking right now.
Her little quilt is so darn cute and a reproduction of an antique!
Finally called the machine quilter today to get my place in her queue.
She is in high demand around quilt show time.
I was secretly hoping she would not have room to fit me in, but alas, I am scheduled the first week in February. Can't use that one as my excuse and now have a second deadline to meet!
She did call me last minute Miller, though.
My fingers are screaming STOP! They are so sore from the frantic hand appliqueing I am putting them through. I use a straw needle and it punctures the skin every once in awhile.
My quilt entry form is due Jan. 15th, accompanied by a picture of the quilt.
Off to the quilt shoppe to get something to protect my finger!
