It happens every January, and this year is no exception. I feel quilt guilt as I try to work on quilting. Somehow over the holidays the momentum has been lost, and the new year means I must decide what to pick up next.
I pick up the Daisy quilt, for which I have sewn down the binding. I still need to sew down the label and the hanging sleeve. But then something else calls me - I should work on cleaning and organizing the sewing room. I pick up a few things, but then those blocks of the month pop up on my Bloglovin' feed, and I feel like I need to work on them. I started so many projects in 2016 that I feel I must make myself finish them in 2017. But of course, there are new projects coming into the feed too. But then there are two quilts I promised other family members.
Phew! I was able to quilt without guilt in 2016 (probably not in January though), so I am hoping that I only have a couple more days of this before I can establish a more forgiving routine and enjoy the joy of quilting again.
To that end, I have prepped the final three blocks of the Adinkra quilt and will be stitching all four of them down shortly. As it turns out, I have been spelling this wrong. I think in 2016 I spelled it Adrinka- I thought I even checked it several times, but now I think it is supposed to be Adinkra.
The fun begins soon! February and March are generally more productive for me, sewing-wise, and I am looking forward to that time this year.
