Yesterday was a VERY productive day. However the nature of my job prevents me from showing you how productive just yet. What I can tell you is that I fniished 4 quilts yesterday.
Before you start thinking I'm some sort of quilting Terminator (Sorry, I have boys) I need to clarify. There's the 'Needs to be Pieced' stack that consists of folds of fabric carefully selected for a particular project. These are numerous and scattered throughout my studio but 2 are on High Priority status right now.
Then there's the 'Needs to be Quilted' stack that consists of pieced quilt tops waiting to be sandwiched and quilted. There is only one of these stacks but is almost more daunting that the plethora of 'Needs to be Pieced' stacks. This stack can range between 1 and 12 quilts on any given day. At this very point in time there are 3 quilts in this stack.
Lastly, there's the 'Needs to be Bound' stack. This stack is self explanitory and actaully embarassing. I HATE BINDING! I'm not sure why. It's that last little bump to get over before the project is complete but I often let quilts sit for days or weeks (even months) before binding them. Yesterday was an exception- I bound 4 quilts. Yes, the same 4 that made it to the FINISHED stack along with 1 that made it to the 'Need to be Quilted' stack and the 2 'Need to be Pieced' quilts cut out and ready to go.
So yesterday when the hubs walked in the door, I was laying on the couch half-dead (certainly brain-dead) watching old 'Big Bang Theory' episodes. He asked what I'd been doing all day and when I replied 'Working' he chuckled and said 'Uh huh' in his you-don't-have-a-real-job sort of voice. I showed him. I went to bed. He had to do dishes. :o)
