Guess what?!? Nothing In and Nothing Out! And it was my birthday last weekend. I almost succumbed to the pressure and almost went to my LQS on Friday but I didn’t. I had no reason to go other than to buy and pet fabric. Which I could do at home. I ended up heading home, finishing up the frankenbatt for Secret Project #2. I even basted everything together. All I need to do now is quilt it. On Saturday, I pulled everything out of my fabric closet to put the batting bin back when I had the very intelligent thought that I should probably get the batting ready for my next project. That way I wouldn’t have any excuse not to do it and it was already out anyway. I am feeling pretty smart about that decision, thank you very much. Anyway, in reality, my next project is Celtic Solstice. And if you recall, that baby is a pretty BIG quilt. Capital letters B-I-G! BIG! So, I’m not going to frankenbatt that. I’ll pull the batting for that from my roll. The next one after that is Quilty Little Christmas. And that is 2×5 and is going to be a wall hanging. A great project for frankenbatting. I laid it on the floor and got the pieces ready for another frankenbatt. I was not in the mood to actually piece it together (everything from my closet was strewn about on the floor.) So I cut where I needed to cut and pinned the sides I wanted to be together so I wouldn’t have to remember. The batting is now happily in my project bin for that quilt. Right now, my quilty mojo is still missing. However I am able to work on one project at a time. Right now that project is Secret Project #2. It’s very slow progress but progress is progress and I’m happy with the little bit I’m able to do.
