Today's Accomplishments

Well, another day of work. We had staff meeting today, so that took up a bit of my time. And I still had more people to catch up with so... I still didn't get a whole lot of sewing done. But I did get eight of these done:

Of course, I still have forty more to go. And the pressing and the trimming. These will be added to all 12 of the blocks for this quilt. And the flash really washed out the fabric in this picture.

I guess I could sew these more quickly by machine, but if I have machine sewing time, I'd like to be working on my paper piecing project. And if I'm sewing by hand at home, I'd like to spend as much of that time hand quilting the big WIP in the Basement. To slow things down a bit, it looks like I will be helping with a big project at work in addition to my regular duties so... less sewing time. But I'm not complaining! I like my job and like the idea of being more helpful there. 

That being said, I still hope to have two big finishes in the next month or so. Actually, there is every possibility that I could complete 4 bed sized quilts (3 queens and a twin) in the first 6 months of this year! Whew! I will be so amazed with myself! (Of course, it hasn't actually happened yet.)
