New Years Resolutions my a**... I've just taken stock of what I'm
doing at the moment, and how much of it there is (not that I'm showing
off or anything, its just made me think that there aren't enough hours
in the day, nor days in the week...
I'm busy cutting MQ-swap squares at the moment, and frantically making
4.5" siggy squares to send to Theresa in Washington for the siggy
Then there's the Tumbling Blocks quilt, which now I've finished
changing green hexes for orange ones needs to be continued with. I've
got another three types of tumbling block-type pattern to make up,
after having put the yellow border round what I've done already.
Then there's the flying geese border to make for my sisters narrowboat
quilt, and of course, I've got to design and make the quilt as well...
a pieced narrowboat with a castle and rose design on it somewhere...
Then there's my Napoleonic historic quilt - Grandmothers Flower
Garden, which needs organising so that I can sit at shows this season
and stitch to my hearts content, so I need to prepare sets of hexes
Then there's my American Civil War quilt - squares and 45 degree
diamonds, which needs preparing right from the start, 'cos I've ony
just gotten the material for it (remember those purple roses on black?
team that up with lavender sprigs on white, and its a stunning
combination - trust me I'm a re-enactor...)
Then there's some little hexes for me to play with - 1" across, just
for the sheer hell of it...
Then theres all the material I bought in America which needs things
doing with it, and everyone we met I got to sign a siggy square, so I
need to make an American Visit Quilt with them.
Then of course there's the actual re-enacting to be done (with
campfire cookery and occasional powder-monkey duties) for three
different groups, two Napoleonic and one American Civil War group.
My web-page needs some serious work done on it, the artillery web-page
needs even more serious work done on it and I've just volunteered to
write a web-page for another re-enactment group.
I've got about 17 craft fairs booked to help out at (long and early
start whole-day jobs, heaving humping and great fun!), I also want to
make Christmas Cards to sell at some of these craft fairs, so need to
schedule time for those as well.
And of course I work full-time Monday-Friday...
Think I'm heading for a nervous breakdown?
It'll be fun tho!
