I ask because I’m not sure I know really.
At the weekend I was in Cumbria at the Quilters Guild Region 15W regional meeting. Saturday I gave a talk “The Accidental Quilter” and Sunday I taught a workshop on Goddesses. I had my camera in my bag all the time but forgot to take any photos (as I do when I’m teaching I must get out of this bad habit).
Then I finally decided what to do for the CQGB challenge “Breakthrough”. I had started a piece months ago for this but decide it wasn’t working and chopped it up – making it too small for the 90×90 or 60x60cm strict limits (I hate having these limits it doesn’t work for me at all – and only 1cm tolerance. Embroiderers would never demand this regulation).
Anyway, now I have my design I have realised that the deadline – 6th November – is not weeks away but only 12 days to account for postage of info. I have visitors arriving tomorrow for a whole week so I know there is little chance I’m going to get this done. I thought I had about two weeks after the holidays.
So do I try and work like crazy? My work is always very labour intensive and I don’t produce 4 works in a day. That’s not me – I can do much better than that. Throwing something together is not my style.
Maybe I’ll get going and try, at the least I’ll have one piece of work in progress……..
