This last week I did not follow my schedule, which is okay. I’m occasionally floating through grief as this loss is still very new to me. I did finish drawing out another quilt I need to get started on as it is for a quilt show in March 2019, and I want to hand quilt it with pearle cotton. It is a variation on Drunkard’s Path. Full name to come.
I attended a paper piecing retreat for any Judy Niemeyer pattern. I pulled out my two started patterns, and was able to make good progress on both. This class came at the perfect time for a good distraction. I have my “homework” for the next class cut out for me. I understand it, so I need to dedicate a good chunk of time to make great progress on other sections so I can use my next retreat time to my advantage.
This upcoming week and a half does not have any deadlines, as simple touching fabric or planning will be therapeutic and good for me. I plan to do a mix of things including tearing out papers from the units I have finished, drawing out quilts/doing calculations, ripping seams, and maybe cutting out additional papers. I am going to try to get my August One Monthly Goal finished before the end of the month, however I am not going to push myself or cry over not getting it done. There is always next month and my priorities have significantly changed.
Next week I should have a great plan in place to get all of the quilts done before the end of the year, and I’ll share it and what I was able to accomplish this week.
