Yesterday in the quilt cave...

I thought I'd do a little update on the progress I made during my quilt cave day. My husband stayed home so I was able to spend most of the day in my cave (other than quick stops to get lunch, make dinner, and go an emergency thread run... nothing worse than running out of thread in the midst of quilting, which I nearly did!). It was like my own mini quilt retreat! I was able to check a few things off my list:

checking items off the to-do list

I even got some binding strips cut. Woo!!!

Lists can be powerful tools for me. I love seeing those x's as items are completed. It truly gives me a sense of accomplishment. Blogging does that too oftentimes. But putting it out there in the world makes it "real," you know? Sometimes, I'm wanting to go with the flow and see where it takes me without the pressure I put on myself to keep up with the blog. Thus, lack of blogging. I want to make it a priority because I know it keeps me focused. At the same time, I have so much routine and focus in every other aspect of my life that I am finding I don't really want focus-- I want freedom. And I'm lazy. Blogging (writing!) takes so much effort for me. And it is not quick. Clearly, what I really need is to change up my blogging perspective. I'll add that to the list.

Look at that! I did some crafty musing there for a bit. :)

Moving on...

Here are all five of my recent roll o' fabric tops are quilted and ready for binding:

five pretty quilts, all in a row... but they still need binding

Now I'm about ready to start a new project:

and a little something new-- fabrics a quilt for Little Bear!

It's time to make a quilt for my Little Bear.

He turns 4 next month.



  1. Babies grow up too fast!!! :)

    Gorgeous quilt tops!

    1. Woo!!! I finally figured out how to do the threaded comments (like you have on your blog!). :) Sorry I haven't responded before-- you're a no-reply blogger, so I didn't have a way. Now I do!

      Many thanks for your kind words, Nakisha! And, wow... they really do grow up fast! Time is on fast-forward these days.

  2. Rock on with your bad self! I only got 1 done... and the binding made, but it is a queen! LOL. I hope to have ot bound and washed for a Tuesday linky! Wish me luck!

  3. WOW! you have been a roll with that roll of fabric. Is it all gone?
