"Do or Die!"

Our littlest grandchild seems to pick up every bug going around - - - which he then "generously" shares with us.
Last time we thought maybe it was the plague. ugh. (And the poor little monkey is sick again with something new.)

Anyway, for me it's meant slow going in the quilting department. The same quilt that was on the frame last week is still there, waiting for its big finish.

This is the "before" shot - it's actually about 3/4 finished in real life.

This was my view while recovering:

This book, suggested by Tracy, was perfect for taking my mind off my misery.

After a couple of books (well, three) my head became less muzzy, so back to the studio I went.

But not to the frame.

At the last minute, I decided to make a mini quilt to submit to a show. IF it's done in time.
The deadline is the 31st.
Of January.
I know.
What. was. I. thinking?

Little stars will finish at 2 inches, while the larger ones will finish at a whopping four!

Jeeps.

Amazingly, it is pieced and I've started the quilting. Tomorrow it's do or die!
(If I don't make the deadline the idea of entering will die - not me I hope!)

Wish me good luck!
(and, please tell me I'm not the only nut to do these crazy, spontaneous projects!)

  5. Crazy, spontaneous projects. That's why we end up with so many things to do. But it's fun!
