Progress

So after my trip I managed to get all my obligatory sewing done.

I finished up Mum's fitted sheets...


(I don't know why I'm showing you such a boring photo...)

Then finished up the coaster order...


Honestly, I was glad to get them done. Now I know why I don't take many orders - I keep feeling under pressure to get them done on time, just right and up to specs etc... :-(  does any one else feel like this?

After that I got to Nephew's Bizzy Kid...


... And confirmed that I'm completely useless at following patterns, because when I thought I got all the blocks done, I discovered that I was a few short... *sigh*

Well, at least there was some progress, and that has to be a good thing, yay!

Hope everyone's having a great week!

We all feel that pressure...it's one reason so many quilters are stay-at-home moms! As long as you're making progress, well, you're moving forward and that's the important thing. As for being short a few blocks, I did that just last week, and it was my pattern! Oh well, laugh it off and keep going!

Hi Mary, thanks for visiting and leaving such encouraging words! I love how a comment can lead me to venture into previously unknown territory - I'm having fun exploring your blog at the moment

Ros, I'm hoping your quilting will come soon too! Sewing's such a rewarding hobby. I'm no expert but I'll be more than happy to share my experiences if you have any questions :)
