This morning was supposed to be routine: get the kids off to school, post to my blog, get busy sewing. And then my older daughter decided to get up close and personal with the corner of the coffee table. Between the epic bug, ensuing ear infections, school vacation, countless snow storms and bitter cold (it snowed last night. again.) and now an ER visit, these past few weeks have been totally sideways as far as productivity. (On a related note - thank goodness for glue! I had stitches at her age, but she just got some super glue and a few days of skipping the bathtub. Oh, and a "grown up" donut - not a munchkin, which seems to have totally made up for the entire morning's drama : P)
Soooooo now here's my post a few hours later...
My progress so far has been to choose fabric, cut and piece a little Maverick Star mini quilt. But I think I *may* be guilty of already falling off the wagon, because when I found a scrap of fairy fabric and fussy cut it for the star, I almost immediately figured it would look best in my daughters' room... which means it might not really be for me, so now I need a new project to make up for it! I have managed to sit down and sew every day, though, so the daily habit I want to reinforce is coming along, even if the self-focus has been thrown off a tad.
I've also started cutting strips for my TLP herringbone quilts. It is almost painful to chop up the adorable Wee Wander prints with horses and fawns, but I'm looking forward to plunging into the piecing this weekend, so it's gotta be done!
What are you up to this week? I'm linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts' Let's Bee Social while madly trying to catch up on work and eagerly awaiting spring! You?
