I can't wait. This time next week I will be knee deep in quilting some tops that are way overdue for attention. I'm heading back to Chicago on Monday to enjoy the generosity of my friend, MacQuilt, and spend a few days playing with Sadie, her Gammill.
I currently have seven tops (actually I have more than that but let's be realistic -- how much can I really get done) that are stacked with batting and backing and waiting to be pushed in the car bright and early on Monday. With a little luck, I'll get six of them quilted and one will stay in Chicago for Mom22smartchix to quilt for me. It needs a bit more than I can give it.
In addition, I will be meeting up with friends to catch up (one of whom I haven't seen since I retired in early Sept). I needed more social time but I am keenly aware of the fish analogy about company and the G8 Summit coming to Chicago at the end of my visit seems like a good time to head home with tops to bind. Hopefully, lots of tops to bind.
Going with me are:
There are two more quilts going (Village and Waffle) which I haven't posted about. We'll see how they look when the quilting is done.
Wish me luck (I'll be taking lots of Diet Coke and Advil to supplement my activities!). I hope you're finding time to finish a few things along the way! Jan
