New Plan of Attack

I found the best advice...ever!!! Check out Madame Samm's blog post from last year!!

She says, in short..

The day before - choose three things you want to finish; do this two hours before bedtime.

Must use a timer.

Spend 23 minutes at a time on each task until completed, jump from 1, 2, to 3. Everything should be handy and prepared, if not, prepare then start the timer. The 23 minutes is for the project, not preparation.  Work faster and faster for each 23 minutes. Take breaks in between.

Do not drink juice or soda as they hinder your brain from working!

Turn off all noise for at least three hours each day.

Suggestion a snack of 1/4 cup of whole almonds and 1 teaspoon of honey!! Gives you lots of energy.

So, I'm going to try that...I'll let you know, too early to choose my 3 things. Going out so my day is done, only got a Dear Jane block done, but worked on other things. Might be keep the fancy machine.

Will re-read again tomorrow for inspiration. So happy Madamn Samm sort of validated my 15 minutes, but I must say that most of my projects really did spill over the 15 minutes mark, so my new time will be 23!!!

Finished January Project

I did it!! I held off doing my first Dear Jane quilt block to finish my one project a month/January Schnibbles!!! I'm really excited to actually finish something. I think this blogging thing is starting to make me accountable for my projects.

Madeline is done! What do you think? Can't show you the quilting up close as I'm not really good yet. Too many crossovers and a few bird nests on the back creeped in. Done is definitely better than perfect, for now!! Not sure how many more quilts I need to do before I declare myself a better quilter and demand perfection.

I have so many online projects I've signed up for an bought fabric for...crazy stupid, but I couldn't decide which ones not to do!!!


Latest Project - Crayon Curtains

Well, I visited my daughter and she convinced me to sew some curtains for her daughter's pre-school classroom. It's my daughter's design, based loosely on a Pinterest photo. LOL
Here's the latest photo, what do you think?

I'll keep you updated on my progress.

I have a bunch of projects that I want to share. Just need to get an app that works to upload my pics from my iPhone or iPad, have any suggestions?  I need an easy way to upload photos and then I'll use my computer to write the blog itself. What do you use?

On the Go - More Help Needed

So, here's the quilt:

It's pretty much directional, so do I quilt my motif (taken from the appliqued elements and quilt designed in AnS) in the outside border going all around or do I do the top/bottom the same as well as the sides or do I just quilt the motif around the quilt?  Better stated, do I treat it as a wall hanging and that I want to see the cars going across the quilt at both the top and the bottom? Or not? This is why I never get anything done.  
Here's a pic of the motif (may be hard to see):

I'm using the blue thread, just have to decide, help!!!!  I know, I know, it's my quilt, but I'd love some input.
