Yesterday I finally began on a project that has been waiting in the wings for months - a portrait of Cooper made from old denim jeans. A nose and an eye - it's a start!
Here's my stash! A pile of varying shades of blue jeans. I hope to hang this at the lake house. Forever in blue jeans....
Okay. So here's the deal. Last year I had a very regimented quilting plan. This year I've been much more lackadaisical. (I had to do spellcheck on that word...) And it's simply not working. I have SO MANY quilts I want to make! And unless I make some changes I won't get to them in this lifetime. So it's time for a change!
I've made a new schedule and I hope to stick with it.
Monday- Machine Quilting
Tuesday- Midcentury houses
Wednesday-Blue/cream plus quilt
Thursday- Christmas quilts
Friday- BOM, Accuquilt Club, SS2
Weekend: Cooper in Denim
Evenings: Handsewing (Bring Me Flowers)
A couple of the items are quilts I haven't started yet - but want to (Midcentury houses and a blue/cream plus quilt). I'll share more about them this week. I put aside one day for all my Christmas quilts.
I haven't mentioned this, but I'm running a BOM program for my guild. Fridays will be my day to make a block (if needed), work on the Accuquilt Club I run at my local quilt shop, and catch up on Splendid Sampler 2.
I'll save Denim Cooper for the weekend and work on Bring Me Flowers in the evenings. Do you see Craftsy Class listed? I caved and subscribed to Craftsy Unlimited. I hope to watch a class each weekend - doesn't matter if it's quilting, painting, cooking, or something entirely different.
As always, if I'm too busy one day, I'll just skip that project and get to it the next week.
