Weekly Thread – 6/14/21

A bit wiggly in the middle, but that’s hard to avoid with a 1-year-old running over it (repeatedly) between shots.

It’s another Monday!! What did I get done last week? Well… all my kids are still alive and well!

Ok, in all seriousness I did get some sewing done, just not as much as I wanted. Aside from burning two days obsessively quilting I did get some cross stitching done. Do I ever get as much done as I wanted? Nope.

Finished Projects

Hahahahaha… Nope.

Current Projects

OTD Bargello SAL

Part 7 – DONE!

Part 8 – Mostly done…

I’m very much enjoying these patterns as I work through them. I’m getting a little concerned I might not be able to keep up with the SAL pace which… may prove awkward in the near future.

Machine Embroidered Products

Got a couple new patterns intended for quilting, but haven’t had the chance to actually test them out yet.

OTD Free SAL

Hibernating…

Queen-Size Quilt

Last part of section “B” before final assembly.

I went a little bonkers on this and got a whole lot of it done. I finished section “B” and I guess for whatever reason there is no “C” so I’ve officially moved on to section “D” which is the last section before final assembly! Yay!

First part of section “D”

At least, “yay” aside from the fact that this final part is… huge.

I shall tackle it nonetheless and get to the final assembly stage! Eventually.

I am by no means expecting to get it done in the coming week, or the week after, or even this month, but it will happen and I cant wait to get to that point!

Then comes the challenge of actually “quilting” it. Queen sized quilt on a domestic machine? EEK!

Alternatives may need to be sought out…

Upcoming Projects

Because… why not?! NO!

(More fun with the quilting program… Not an actual project as of yet)

Conclusion?

On the positive side, this post isn’t as empty as I feared it would be. I managed to get a lot more done than I expected to.

On the less positive side, I’m starting to seriously think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew between quilting, two SALs, Machine Embroidery, and just all the little details of trying to run a “business” in these areas. Not to mention caring for 4 young children and maintaining a household.

Has that caused me to slow down at all? *points at the upcoming projects that are “not” upcoming projects* evidently not. Maybe I function best in a perpetual state of overwhelm. There’s no rational reason to keep adding to the pile of things I want to do, yet I keep adding.

Just keep sewing… Just keep sewing…

As always… Thanks for reading!
