Prepping and partying
The only person doing any sewing around here is Laura. She's making some extra large hot pads for her friends who have moved into a new home. She's suing Insul-Brite between 2 layers of batting so they can sit hot dishes on them.
I was supposed to be getting the rest of my booth inventory ready yesterday but Chris, Ian and I went clay shooting instead and then last night Laura and I met another friend for drinks.
Today they are off doing other things so I'll behave and do my work.
One of the "work" things is to pack up some hand work project to do in the booth when things are slow or in my room at night. I'll take my applique project to work on at night but I need something smaller for the booth time. I think my shibori stitching exercises will be perfect and it doesn't take up much space. Space is becoming a serious consideration. I've got 3 people and a lot of stuff to pack in my small car!
My carrot for being serious about work today is that if I get done I'm going to allow myself to get the Maine quilt out and work on it. I'm motivated to get the Maine quilt top done because I REALLY want to start cutting the Antelope Canyon quilt. I'm not going to let myself start cutting AC until Maine is done. That's my goal for the weekend...until Sunday when I'll be totally focused on football for the last time until August.

I need to make myself some new potholders. Mine are awful and that is being nice! LOL!!!! Good luck getting everything you need together for your trip. I hope you are so busy you won't even have time to shibori!

I admire your self control in finishing the Maine quilt before you start the Antelope Canyon one.

Laura is making a very practical gift - something that will be loved and used. And I do admire your sticking to finishing one thing when you're really wanting to play with something new.
