work in progress


Quilting this full size quilt was my project for the day.
I was hoping to get it all quilted and the binding machine stitched on, but that goal was a little lofty for a single day, apparently. I wanted to take it along to our multiple thanksgiving festivities tomorrow so I had something to stitch while I was visiting. I have a crochet blanket that I will probably cart along with me instead. (I have to be doing something!)

See, that's why it's important to have multiple projects going. :)

That looks really pretty so far. I am taking my knifty knitter along because my MIL wants to see how it works. I may take another project along, too. I have a project for Etsy that is going to need hemming if I can get a few minutes of stitching in in the morning to get it to the point where I can hem it. Not sure if that's gonna happen or not.

That quilt looks great! I am jealous....I need to sew. ARGH! Off to scour the house yet again for that missing cord! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!
I vote for multiple projects, so I can flip from one to the next before it gets boring. It never is......now you can imagine how many I have on the run:-))my poor family living between bolts and skeins....
I love your choice of quilt-along blocks.

I completely understand the importance of multiple projects! And what better things for my family to be surrounded with than fabric and yarn!

Great quilting, I'm glad you mentioned taking a project a long on those holidays visit's. I'm planning on doing some knitting or binding since I too can't just sit there.

I would get restless if I had only one project to do... Happy Thanksgiving!! How fun you take something with you to do while visiting.

Thanks. That's a splendid reason for multiple projects. I feel so much less guilty now.

I hope your Thanksgiving was great and that you got lots done on the blanket (a smart project to haul around when it's cold out)!

Clair said...

The quilt is one that fits the Thanksgiving color theme. Fun.

I totally agree with you about multiple projects. I'm not the kind of girl who can sit still. Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you got a lot done on your trip.

Beautiful quilt! I hope your holiday was perfect and you found just the right thing to keep your hands busy! I can relate - I think I have a different project in every room of my house so that if I find myself with a sleeping (or nursing) baby I can pick it up and work on it.

I completely agree! Happy belated Thanksgiving to you!

I'm a multi-project person too. I enjoy having more than one going, then I work on whatever fits my mood. Sometimes I want to sew at the machine, other times I prefer some hand sewing in front of the TV. And then I need something portable to take along for whenever I need it.
