Interruptions

My plan to catch up on binding six smaller quilts has hit a snag. You've seen the two that I have finished. There are four more in various stages of completion. One of these is probably going to my former neighbors as a farewell gift, one is for the wall of my husband's computer room, and one is for the back entry hall. All was going well when. . . . . .the longarm quilter called that my latest quilts were done. So, now I have to shift my interest to at least two in this stack, which are going to be Christmas presents.
I guess I'm overly rigid, I hate dropping one job to start another.
But don't all the quilts look pretty piled up in my den?
Oh, well, I did make some progress. The completed teacup and saucer quilt is very nice decorating the den wall. I haven't taken the Christmas sampler quilt down from the closet door tension rod yet after photographing it - I just wanted to enjoy it for a while. (But I can't get into that closet until I do.)

Speaking as another "rigid", rigid is good! But how lovely to think that you are getting ahead on Christmas presents and it's still late October. Well done for being organised and dare I say a tiny bit "rigid". You deserve to feel smug when everyone else is panicking in December. And yes, they look great all piled up like that. Now what they really need is a greyhound to come along and test them for softness.....

Oh gosh. I can't imagine having a "PILE" of binding to do! I'm afraid I'm not a great fan of binding... Good thing that you enjoy and very good of you to make progress on all of them!

A pile of quilts is as lovely as things can be!
