Work In Progress Update

Hi guys!  I am sad to say I have very little to report in the way of quilty progress.  That being said, I have learned a bit about myself this week.  It seems the weekends are incredibly important in my crafting. I get at least one good, solid day of quilting or stitching done each weekend and it seems that momentum keeps me running all week.  You see, if I can start a job with several hours to dedciate, it makes things so much easier for me to continue on in my evenings after work.  When I miss that weekend of quilting, my evenings are dedicated to smaller, piece-meal tasks.

I am sad to say, last weekend was a non-quilty weekend.  I have little quilting to show today.  I finished the hand binding on my sampler quilt with the exception of the 3 inch span that I blogged about on Monday.  That still needs to be fixed and the quilt is ready for washing.  Fixing that binding error is a big job in my head, but an easy Saturday task! 

I have high hopes for next week.  I have my mystery quilt fabric arriving over the weekend and I am really excited to start piecing the remaining blocks.  That will be my happiness next week, so you'll have a good show of new, pretty things on Wednesday.

Although my quilting progress is not mighty this week, I have been messing with my Tree of Life embroidery.  I mastered the French Knot last night with much happiness!  It's not finished yet, but here is a picture of my progress.  Thanks for the encouraging nudge, Claudia :)
