Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people. Eleanor Roosevelt

I'm slow. I'm trying not to lose interest this early, b..u..t... I am.
This quilt has 16 stars, meaning it shouldn't take more than 16 days. But it'll probably take me all month.
Yesterday Dorian made himself comfortable on top of it and I didn't have the heart to move him. Today I sewed my second star. Pretty lazy! I also noticed that half of the tension was off and really bad. You know, the kind where you look at the back and all you have to do is pull a thread and you get a long loose string? So I pulled it out and fixed it. I'm feeling pretty good about my accomplishments this morning but can I keep it up?
The backing was a huge piece of floral that has been hanging around for years and years. There was more than enough to use as a backing and it has a green background and purple flowers. I say it matches!
I started a new applique project. I needed something to keep my quiet and my hands busy, for the board meeting tonight.
Pretty exciting isn't it! I have three doodles that will turn (hopefully) into beautiful Easter eggs. I'm planning to keep ahead of the Holidays. We shall see if I'm still ahead by Thanksgiving!
