I've come to a bit of a hiatus as far as stitching is concerned
I have several (or should that read seventy times several?) projects on the go:
Sarah's blue bullseye which is overdue now as DH has finished decorating her bedroom.
Nick's Liverpool 'Tonya lettering' quilt which I've completed half the names for
My Ostrich which needs a whole load of hand applique that I would usually delight in settling down to do
My Hexagon quilt which needs all the part hexagons for round the edge putting on - I can understand why I don't want to pick this up as they are a real pain to do but it wouldn't take very long if I put my mind to it
My scrappy bullseye - the top's complete, I have a recipient in mind for it although she doesn't know she'll receive it even though she's admired it several times - this just needs sandwiching to get it ready for machine quilting
The little green, pink and white friendship star cot quilt I played with much earlier on my blog
Lots of other UFO's that are sitting in boxes in the loft which haven't been unpacked since the move a year ago on Saturday
I just can't get myself motivated
My sewing area looks like a bomb has hit it - I know it would only take me a couple of hours or so to tidy it all up and DH would really like me to do so as he's almost ready to start work on putting in my lovely new worktop, moving the radiator etc
Maybe having to concentrate and get into the rhythm of my new job is taking up most of my mental energy
Also all the kids' activities on weekday evenings are in full swing so I often don't get back in the house to lock the door and forget the outside world until 9pm - doesn't leave much stitching time when I go to bed between 10.30 and 11.00 and like to spend a bit of time with DH as well
Plus Sarah's rugby coach is expecting a baby in about 4 - 5 weeks time and Sarah would really like me to make her a baby quilt - but, wait for it............ it's a boy and she thinks the quilt should be in the rugby club colours of white, burgundy and black! - not pressing any buttons for me I'm afraid.
Also money's very tight in the Bebbs household this year so I thought I'd get fired up and make some quilty Christmas presents for people - can't even get my head around those - bluuugh!
So in the absence of anything productive to show you I've added three more quilts from our show plus a lovely stained glass design I've picked up somewhere on the net as I've been browsing and squirrelled away in my 'Quilt Ideas' picture file for future reference.
I think it would make a lovely quilt centre if I could only get the impetus to have a go!!!
