I have a big work project to get done -- actually two of them -- but I just can't seem to make myself focus on either of them for more than a short time. I keep setting goals for myself: okay, if you get this part of it done you can go and sew for 1/2 hour -- but then I can't even stick to that! Does this happen to everyone? and how do you get over it (I know -- quit my job!)
I did spend some time seriously sewing with a couple of friends this afternoon, and got a good part of the second half of my batik jewel box sewn together. That's my UFO target for the month.
And, somehow I've signed myself up for a few "Robins" starting this month and next. I think the most interesting might be the Ostrich Robin at Peach Quilting -- called "Ostrich" because it doesn't fly: you do all the rounds yourself, following instructions that Kim will provide every couple of months! I have my center block made already -- it's a tiny bit from a pattern in Quiltmaker Magazine's last issue.
One of my online groups is doing a Row Robin and I've picked out the focus fabrics I want to use (my stash of Andover's American Tinware from their folk art collection a couple of years ago) but I haven't figured out what sort of blocks I'm going to do, yet. There's a few weeks left on that one.
Finally, one more photo and then I REALLY need to get some work done -- I finished the Spring Breeze top from A Pocket Full of Mysteries. Now to think about quilting it...
