Okay, so my weekend quilting plans have not gone exactly as I had hoped...
Friday was off to a great start, but before I started working on the stairstepper quilt for my step-mom I was given another project by her. It is to make cover/liners for a basket she has. Now, I'm not a person that knows how to sew. I know how to do the stuff I need to do for quilt, but that's it. However, I gave it my very best shot (and more than one try) and came up with this. It isn't too bad. I have to do another one for her as well. I have the pieces cut, just not sewn. I will hopefully finish that up today. So, instead of working on her quilt, I worked on these. I guess it is an even trade of my time, but I was really hoping to have the top of the quilt finished by this weekend.
Yesterday, I was going to trace the blocks for my son to color for his ABC quilt. That was going to be what I did with the time I allowed for that as I couldn't bare to take even more blocks away from him so soon. Which he had no problem informing me he is still sad that I took the others. I did promise him that as soon as we were done tracing and coloring the blocks though, that he could have the coloring books to do whatever he wanted with. That definitely made him happier! Back to the point... since I wasn't going to sew on that quilt, I decided to use the time to get a bit ahead on the "tracing" part, so I traced 4 blocks! Well, yes, Gentry colored all 4 of them yesterday. So, now I'm not ahead anymore. LOL! I know he is going to want me to do more tracing today as we only have X, Y and Z left.
And finally regarding my own quilt. I was so hoping to sew the rows together yesterday and plan out the border. However, I have not been feeling well lately and each day seems to be worse. I'm tired and very dizzy. I keep feeling like I am suffering from motion sickness, even when I'm perfectly still. It has really been draining me of my energy and motivation. I'm sure it is nothing, but I just wish I knew how to make it go away. So, instead of sewing my rows together, I had to take a nap, couldn't help it!
So, here we are on Sunday. And I don't know if I even want to attempt to plan out anything. Maybe I should take the day off and rest. I just get so depressed when I don't accomplish anything. Maybe I should plan amounts of "time" to work on things instead of "amounts to accomplish". Hmmm... I don't know. I'm headed back to bed for a bit of a rest and maybe I'll have an answer later on.
