Cross-Stitching and Fabric Cutting...

Well...I'm two days into my "I'm going to cross-stitch for an hour every day" plan, and it's sort of going okay, but sort of not. I'll explain.

On Saturday, I stitched for 2 hours. Technically, my "plan" wasn't supposed to start until Sunday, so I was working ahead. Those 2 hours counted for Sunday and today. In my mind anyways :-)

And if that doesn't work, I blame the time change. It isn't a big deal, unless, in my case, I start work at 6am, decided to spend Saturday night at my friendss house, which is an hour away from my home (and also from my work), which meant I had to get up at 4 to leave at 5, which really, was like getting up at 3, and it has really thrown me off. I'm totally exhausted but can't get to sleep at my normal times. Not cool.

On Sunday I started my quilt! I went to Rose's house and she helped get me going on it. And...6 hours later, ALL of my fabric is cut and ready to go! Can you believe that? It was one crazy day of cutting...Rose was working at her rack hand quilting and watching a movie and I decided to just get as much done as I possibly could before dinner. And that I did!

I was short on my border/binding fabric so I have to go back and get another meter of that because I want to use it in the quilt as part of the main pattern as well, just to tie it together, so I can't start pinning or sewing until I do that and get it cut too.

Tomorrow: Mission cross-stitch!!!!! (hopefully)

  1. I totally feel for you with the time change. I still haven't gotten the hang of it yet!
