Quilting this week took a little detour to a little quilt that wasn't even thought of last week. Hey, that's what happens sometimes. Stay tuned for a photo. Interesting how that happens.
Sometimes working fast (as in - oh, look how quickly the deadline for that is rushing up!) isn't a good thing. There's a fine line balance between getting into the zone because there's a time limit and not having a lot of time to think things out. Sometimes everything works out great, sometimes you have second thoughts but it's too late. But, I guess if you don't try, you don't try. In the long run, it pays to get the idea sooner rather than later, if only so that it's been sitting developing in your head rather than being made up as you do it. At least that's my experience.
Now we're into the down-to-the-wire, chicken version of blogshares. May 1, all accounts are reset and you'll only carry the cash you have forward. No stocks, except 1000 of the stock you claimed. Here's my list of current or recently owned stocks. My total worth is around $4100. Not bad.... I'm shooting for $5K.Update: see next post for list of past and present stocks.
As I said earlier, I've been working on my pink and green quilt, an inch and a half at a time. I am about one third of the way done sewing the horizontal seams together so I'm more than half way done with sewing the top. I think this photos is a little off colorwise, but the color of the quilt varies a lot depending on the light source. It does give you an idea of the overall look of the quilt though.

I have managed to do a little bit more on the pink and green quilt. 1.5 inches at a time. That's how it works. Closer and closer to done but it's slow going. I see a few places that I'll probably fuss with a bit to make the seams match a bit better. But overall, it's not as hard as I thought it would be. Probably because I'm not in a mood to go fast. Sometimes that's a good thing.
