quilter's dliemma

Well, the weather has gone downhill. Rain. Thunder. Lightening. Flood. There's a man with a beard up the street who has laid out the keel of a boat.
So, the outdoor quilt show is cancelled. Even driving through the hill country antiquing is cancelled. Now, I have to pick a project for a plan B.
Do I pull out a top, pin baste it and quilt it up?
Do I keep working on my latest project?

Do I work on my other latest project that I'm taking a break from?

Do I pull out something I haven't worked on in a long time?

Or do I start something new????

Oh, I am so sorry, I thought about you guys this morning and was hoping you would have a lovely day! Darn weather...I am not one to give advice....but I would TRY to not start a new project....and I stressed the word TRY! Whatever you decide, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

If the weather is vile, I'd go and grab one of your beautiful finished quilts, get a quilting book, cuddle up on the lounge and read said book and look for a re-run of Antiques Roadshow on the TV. That way you're still having the day you planned- just a little differently.

Whatever you decide to do - I hope it's fun.

Lane, too bad you have to go to plan B. I really like that green/blue/brown/gold circle quilt. I finished my Bunny Hill quilt and have it hanging on my wall. It's a nice springy/summery touch. Rhoda

I can sympathize. We've had 2 weekends in a row with cold rainy weather, and last weekend we lost power for an entire day. Hard to sew with no power! I'll have to post pictures of the quilt show I'm going to today so you can enjoy it. Take care.

I vote for the circle quilt. Or how about something you can finish today. The disappointment from changed plans will be lost in the feeling of having a finish.

I've been up since 4:15am....couldn't sleep. So I took a bunch of orphan blocks that had been sent to me (orange! all 6") and threw together a top and bordered it. It's now basted and ready to go for traveling and hand quilting. It feels like a finish of sorts.

I'd probably plug away on the one that is closest to being DONE and off the list if I were you!

Or...something "hand worky" so I could sit and watch some movies on TV if the weather is extremely yucky and dark. I love that!

So disappointing for you.
Hope you found something to keep you busy, you have a lot of choices.

Can't wait to see what you got up to. Really like the way your drunkards path is looking.
Enjoy.

Hi Lane! Do the third choice because those blocks are so cute and i want to see what the rest will look like! :-) Sam xox

Oh, my! You are doing those adorable baskets! I loved those, but never did anything about them (not even bookmarking the site). Obviously, you've decided what to work on, but I vote for those cute baskets and hope it works retroactively - ha, ha, ha! Your projects are all so beautiful! Thanks for a peek into your WIP's.

Oh, and sorry your day didn't work out as planned. That can be so frustrating.
