So busy!

So awhile back I promised myself that I wouldn’t blog about not blogging and here I am breaking that promise.  Being freelance with my work, my quilting free time ebbs and flows.  After a very long time just quilting a ton (mostly stuff I can’t post here!), on Monday I started back up on a job.  So I’m in an ebb and I will be for about three months.  I’ll miss my sewing machine but the paychecks will ease the pain.

Meanwhile, the fabrics for the next quilt have been pulled!

Oh gray – why can’t I quit you?!?

Can’t wait to get cutting and sewing this weekend!

    Oh, me, too!
    Grey has become the love of my life! My quilting life, at least!

    Congrats on the new job! I paycheck from time to time to keep the fabric coming in is helpful :)

    Have fun sewing this weekend. Looks like you have some great fabrics picked.

    Hehe I just pulled grey for the quilt I started working on today… AGAIN! I was trying to go in a different direction but I can’t fight grey. It’s my true love!

    Love the colours / fabrics you pulled btw!!

    Fabric doesn’t go bad. Your pretty pile will inspire you until you get the time to hack it up!

    Looks like a beautiful combination! I’m feeling the whole yellow/grey/aqua thing at the moment, and resisting pulling a stack out for a new quilt when I’ve still got two in progress.

    Nice to know you’re still around! I just came back to my blog from a break – I was too busy to have fun with my blog – that’s what it’s all about, right?

    so sad that you’re ‘so busy’ and not ‘sew busy’….. but, time makes the heart grow fonder, you will enjoy your sewing time even more than ever in three months time!

    we’ll miss you, but know that you’ll have all that time to “think” about the quilts you’re going to make!!
