Not a lot of my own sewing was done this past week, but I did finish the Big Ten top that I was working on last week. I'm going to try to get a picture today, but we'll see if that works. That quilt is pretty big, around 90" x 110". Oh yea, I did start another project from the Oct./Nov. 2011 Quilt Magazine and that will probably be on the design wall tomorrow because I doubt that any more sewing will be done on that today. I have to embroider the Homecoming sashes for the local high school and that should take care of the rest of my day sewing-wise.
It's October and I really need to get busy working on UFOs again, but I keep seeing new things I want to begin. I really do feel like a child that needs constant reminding to stay on task. In my defense though, I have finished a fair number of things this year. Contrary to an e-mail that I received about my numbers a couple of months ago, I'm counting the 15 honor flight quilts just like any other quilt, even though they're small. I was told in the e-mail that I really shouldn't count them as 15 quilts because they only measured 36" x 48" and that a better idea would be for me to perhaps count them as 7 or 8 quilts. The writer felt that it wasn't fair for me to report that I had finished so many more quilts than a person like herself who never makes anything smaller than 60" x 70". Really?!? I don't think so. My stash report is for me and it's not a contest. If I want to count them as a quilt then so be it. Besides, I didn't know that there is a size requirement for a project to be considered a quilt. :-) What about about all those baby quilts people make. Should they count?
