|The List: too much?|
digthru the many piles, drawers, bins and bags of WIPs to determine what I might work on for three days.
Three days = not a lot of actual time, but a great deal of imagined time.
And that statement pretty much sums up The Story of My Life.
My must finish project was to complete the borders and piece a backing for the 1930's scrap quilt that I last worked on at retreat in February.
This was a scraps-only project, and I had run out of the soft yellow used for the X blocks. Which implied some fiddly piecing would be needed for those borders. Also, I wanted to make the quilt rectangular (I have a general distaste for square quilts). Needed to piece an inner border to finish off the central design. Boy, can things get fussy and complicated in a hurry!
