And this photo might explain where the rest of my time went in January.........
enough for the February retreat, and a good start for June as well. I have exhausted my supply of the brown cases, and now need to use the smaller purple ones. They are also in limited numbers, so unless I can source some more before the end of the year, it will be back to using paper bags again, as I did in the beginning. The girls love their cases, and use them to store projects in after the retreat.
My checking lady was in on Tuesday to work her way through the cases, checking my calculations, correcting errors in my printouts, and counting every piece of fabric in the bags!!!! A mammoth task indeed. She was in another room, with the door shut, so that I couldn't talk to her! I did keep her supplied with food and drink throughout the day though.
There were a few things to change in the notes, and I did have to cut some more pieces of fabric in a couple of quilts. Hope it's all good now.
And after sorting all those scraps earlier in the month, I already have a tray of bits again!
And this is where I am up to with the quilt that has been on the machine for ages. Tonight it is done!
Tomorrow I can start on some edge to edge quilting, before starting another custom next week. There will be another trip up the highway on Sunday, which I will tell you about soon. And next weekend there is another journey to Melbourne, this time for a baby shower. I am trying to get myself very organised, as I am expecting to head to Melbourne again, possibly in the next month, as "Bro" is 36 weeks now!!
So the year has started in earnest, with lots marked in the diary already. I can't see that I will be bored any time soon!
