Hooray! My sewing drought is finally at an end! It isn't like I haven't had the desire to sew, I have just had trouble finding the time since finishing my Laundry Money quilt right before Thanksgiving. Yesterday was our last day of school before Winter Break, and when I got home, I just crashed. A late afternoon/evening nap is not great if you want to be able to go to bed at a reasonable hour, but even thought I didn't plan it, I decided to seize the opportunity for some quiet sewing into the wee hours of the morning.
I was so excited to make such great progress that I woke up and finished this quilt top this morning. I've had this bundle of Up Parasol for a couple of months, and it was just killing me to leave it alone for so long.
This weekend is really the calm between two storms. Life has been so hectic lately, and it feels wonderful to have a relaxing weekend at home; but of course we're gearing up for a busy Christmas week next week. I'm hoping I can at least get the back put together, and get this quilt basted before Christmas, but I just don't know if it's going to happen. We shall see!
