How's that Finish-A-Long Coming Colleen?
As you may recall, when I first posted, on New Years Day, I had finished all 64 blocks.
Here is what has happened since.
Jan 2: Cleaned house. Squared up some of the blocks. Thought about going back to work Jan 3.
Jan 3: Went to work. You know how it is the first day back after some time off - it seems like that first day back will never end. I was tired after work, so did not even visit sewing room.
Jan 4: Worked. Squared up some more blocks.
Jan 5: Worked. Realized that my Freebie Fifteen block was due soon, and decided to get started on that.
Jan 6: Worked. Did some more work on that FF block. (Well, it did have a LOT of pieces).
Jan 7: Finally finished the FF block. See, it took me 3 days to do one block. I am a very slow quilter! Actually looked at the calendar for the first time and realized that the fifteenth of the month was a week away, so there was no rush to get this block done.
Jan 8: Read the paper. Went grocery shopping. Had a nap. Made supper. Oh, and I managed to square up the remaining blocks.
Jan 9: Worked. Got distracted by the Freebie Fifteen companion block. I know I don't have to complete this one by the fifteenth, but what the hey.
Jan 10: Had a real excuse for not quilting today. Did some volunteer work after my regular work day, and got home just a half hour before bedtime.
Jan 11: That FF companion block is really challenging!
Jan 12: Still challenging.
Jan 13: Have been blog surfing since supper. I'll finish up the FF companion block tonight.
And there you have it. Two weeks and I haven't even sewn two of the blocks together! Just in case anyone wondered why I only had one item on my Finish-A-Long list for this quarter...
