Quilting away

I knew it.  Just when I had to get up yesterday and go on with the day, the machine was ready to quilt. 

I stole a few minutes while dinner was in the oven last night and quilted.

When I went in at bedtime to feed the fish, I sat down and quilted for a few minutes. 

And, I spent all of my half hour this morning quilting.  I managed to finish the plus sign shaped area in the lower part of this picture and move into the surrounding spaces.  Not much of an accomplishment. 

I am looking forward to this weekend when I can quilt for more than a half hour at a stretch. 

But, before I can quilt, I've got to get everything pulled together for class.  I thought I was so prepared.  Then, this morning, I thought of something important I had not pulled out.  And, because Sydney says I have the memory of a goldfish, I wrote that down.  And, then I thought of something else.

And, something else and something else and before I knew it, I had made a column of items on one side of a small piece of paper and turned it over to the back.  I didn't know when I'd be teaching again, so I put everything away.  After this one, I'm going to leave it in a tub and only take out what I need, when I need it, and then put it back in the tub.

Who laughed?  That wasn't very nice.  You never burst the bubbles of the delusional, just like you never wake a sleepwalker. 

Thought I'd share a couple of pics from my desk. 

Am I cynical, or what? 

Everybody have a great day.  Quilt until you break a sweat and then go back and quilt some more.  Do you hear me quilter?  Now drop and give me 20 stitches.

Thanks Lane! You made me laugh! I love your pins and that bumper sticker (?) I need a tee shirt with that on it!

I feel your pain about not being able to quilt or sew when you want to. I'm so glad that when I lost my job in February my spousal unit told me I didn't have to find another one if I didn't want to, but that we had to stop eating and blowing money left and right. Not hard terms to agree with in order to get sewing time!
