Not enough hours in a day....or a weekend

When your time is limited due to work, family, home....etc...there just aren't enough hours to do all the things you want.

All the blocks for the baby quilt are stacked up in order... numbered by row with the top block being to the "left".   I need to get that stitched.

I got hooked on playing with these hexagons.  The Paper Pieces and the Luna Notte fabric were gifts for Christmas from Sharon and I just thought I would give them a try one evening and now I can't stop.  I have one whole charm packet cut and ready to go and there is another one waiting in the wings.

Then there is my new Nook Color that I have "Sugar Camp Quilts" loaded  on and I want to find the time to read this.  If you don't know, this book is one of the Elm Creek Quilts series.

Then there is the #15 block for the Beyond the Cherry Trees that I am obviously going to be behind on since the new one is due out tomorrow, but hey....there was Christmas, New Years, trying to work on a wedding quilt, etc. 

Here most of the freezer paper pieces have a fabric mate now.  I am going to trace around the patterns and trim them up a little and then it will be time to start stitching on this block. 

Like I said...there just aren't enough hours in a day or for me, there just isn't enough time on the weekend.

Hope you find time to take a few stitches. 


  1. Well you certainly have enough projects to keep you busy and they all look like fun!
    I read right before going to sleep (it helps) and
    I promised myself to set one hour a day (at least) for a project.

  2. We spend too many hours doing the things we have to do to make money to do the things we WANT to do. I spent the afternoon with my niece instead of quilting, but I'm going to have an hour or so before bed to work on block #7. I prepped it last night. (I have no social life) *s*

  3. You are wayyyy out ahead of me with BTCT - trying to finish up #4 and get on to starting #5...a basket finally! I am so slow at applique and only work on it in the evening.

  4. My goodness Faye - I'm tired just reading about everything you're doing! I totally agree about hexagons - addictive and fun!

  5. I think you are making progress with all of your projects! A little everyday is something.

    Don't you just love your Nook? I got a Kindle and it's amazing.


I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
