The December Lack-of-Progress Report


Hmm, I've left the post that talked about being sick up for three weeks. My quilt-blog discipline went to hell when the Q4P blogring bit the dust. But just in case anybody has been wondering: I'm fine. Healthy as a horse. A healthy horse.

December has been a tough quilting month. One reason has been the end of the college football season, which takes away my guaranteed weekly intensive quilting times. The other reason has been, of course, Christmas. I do love me some Christmas, but it certainly does take vast swathes of times with all of the planning and cooking and buying and making and wrapping and this and that and the other thing. Hard to keep the momentum going on the craft projects.

The upside is, I have several projects needing only some final handwork to get finished, and several days of holiday downtime with the family coming up in which to do handwork. You do the math! I'm hoping I can start bragging about some finished projects soon.
Here's the bin full of my Christmas homework.
It has Ice and Fire, Two Complex Shapes, and all four of the Four Seasons in it, along with everything I'll need to work on them. Which is a lot of homework -- I'm betting on winter weather forcing everyone to stay indoors and spend a lot of time gabbing -- but I'm also going to be bringing along Labyrinth. The quilting on Lab' is about 80% finished, and I must say I'm pretty happy with how it's coming along....


Happy Holidays to all you fabulous readers, and to everyone you know, and to everyone else too!

Was wondering where you had got to.

Kim handed over the ring to Swooze who renamed it Quilting For Fun. That ring is now full, but she has started another one called More Quilting For Fun. You'll find a link for the first onat at Chez Moi which also links to Swooze's blog.

Labyrinth is looking wonderful. Here's hoping you get a lot done over the holidays. Then on to next year's list and resolutions!

Labyrinth is looking great! But what about Ice & Fire... it's finished isn't it? Doesn't it get a post?

Labyrinth looks great, especially with the quilting. Glad you're feeling better!

Labyrinth looks awesome - want to see a big picture, whole thing - can't find it . . .

@dordogne: Yeah... I just haven't decided whether I want to "go back in the ring" yet....

@rebel: NOW it's finished and gets a post. There was still some detail work to go when you saw it.

@e.c., f.d., b.b.: Thanks!!!
