Not Enough Quilt Time
Olivia's quilt is still in progress.
The flowers are quilted with an outline around the edges and inside the edges of each flower and down the middle of each leaf, and I've started quilting the rest of the borders. I forget about working over Valentine's Day and how little energy I have at the end of a day. It slows down my progress. I hope I finish it before Olivia is walking!
I've also been stitching a blessing dress and slip for Olivia. (I wasn't able to get a good photo: they are all white and bleached out no matter how I tried to photograph them.) Sometimes my slow pace is because of indecision. Buttons or snaps? Embroidery or lace? Short or long? Long or longer? I eventually decide, and then reconsider again. It's the challenge of trying to make things perfectly.
All in all, I've had too little time quilting!
