Now I know it is August and things slow down at this time of year but I have to tell you I am getting kind of twitchy now. I spent all of last week trying to find five minutes to finish making the back for my circles quilt so that I could sandwich it. Have I got a quilt back? Nope. I am no closer to getting it done,even though it is 90% pieced and I just need to add two little bits. Every time I get it all out something happens - a cat, a kid, a man at the door, and the last time I was interrupted I bundled it unceremoniously together (and I do mean bundled, not carefully folded) and stuck it on top of a pile of boxes, where it is still sitting, untouched.
I am doing fine on my little twiddly bits of handwork: circles, skirt, quilting, but need to be doing just a tiny bit more.
So, trying to be a realist, I am going to stick with small bits that don't require a floor for now. The good side to this is that it means I have started cutting my lovely pile of red, white and blue. I'm just cutting strips and piecing them into sets of three for now, but it will giving me something to work with in a while and it's very manageable practically.
