|Suzi the cat helps out with the hand quilting|
This time around I am hand quilting a quilt for a show. The delivery deadline is one month away, and every spare moment is focussed on sewing, and even just a few stitches a day will bring it closer to its completion. I have noticed, as I surf the internet, that I am not the only one in this predicament. As you can see, I am getting a lot of help from Suzi, who can't wait until it is back from the show and in full circulation. All I REALLY want to be doing is more of my Nearly Insane Quilt, or to use the fabric, and to do some of the small projects I brought back from my trip to the USA, but this self-imposed deadline has taken over my LIFE!

So it is back to quilting. However, this weekend is offering up some good television entertainment, which is VERY good for quilting. We have the start of the Tour de France, the British Formula 1 Grand Prix, and even the new series of Top Gear. I hope to get a lot done.
