I think I have finally settled on a design for my daughter's Rainy Days and Mondays quilt.
A little of this, a little of that.....
And a ton of my own design. This one will be a challenge and will certainly stretch my limits with new techniques to try...it will have about 1200 itty bitty pieces in all sorts of angles to make the top alone!
Her birthday is only a month away! In keeping with my "new attitude" of balance, I am not stressing about finishing this one up in time. I will pick at it when the mood strikes, show her what I have on her birthday, and let her be involved with the process until it is done. I think she will appreciate having an attentive Mom more so than a quilt on time....but I will make sure there is an "alternate" gift for her to unwrap!
Thanks so much to all of you who offered your support for my post the other day. It is nice to know I am not alone with my SuperMom complex! I stopped the clock for a day or two, played with the kids, and just reset my priorities a bit. I need to have my creative outlet, but it has to all mesh with family life. So, sorry Alison, I am NOT quitting sewing and sending you all of my fabric! But I may just pull back the pace a wee bit!
Back tomorrow with a winner for the giveaway!
