Sometimes when I feel overwhelmed, I just have to put everything aside and do something else. I suppose that I am abdicating my responsibilities, but only for a couple hours or so.
Jewel's Arm Candy (Flickr name) posted this quilt on the flickr discussion board after block 11. HERE's the link in case you are interested.
I have been thinking about it since she posted this picture. Today it was just what I needed. I figured out how much fabric I would need and what I would need to cut while sitting at the tire store waiting for a leak to be plugged. Then I stopped by a fabric shop on my way home and picked up the supplies. I even had a gift certificate to the shop so the quilt was free (well, almost)!
So, the kids watched tv and made messes while I sewed. The kids played and cried while I sewed. It is all done except the border. I am hoping to show it to you tomorrow. I love it! Thanks Jewel's Arm Candy!
Here's to (temporary) abdication of responsibility!
