Slow Start

Is it just me or is 2012 rolling in s-l-o-w-l-y? My kids agree with me. I know this because I can't seem to get them out of bed for school in the morning and they've been tardy twice in the last week (the first times this school year!)

I allowed myself a little break during the holidays and I think thats where the problem started. I should've just kept going and not lost momentum. Now that I've stopped, it's so much harder tp get going.

In all fairness I haven't been sitting around all day playing Angry Birds (well, not EVERY day) I finished up my next fabric collection. WooHoo!  Of course there's still work to do but the hard stuff (designing) is done.

I've also quilted 1 1/2 quilts. Working on finishing the second one but for some reason my walking foot isn't walking very well. I think I may need a replacement. Then there's the 4 stacks of fabrics I've gathered for 4 more quilts I need to have finished by the end of the month. Yes finished. Pieced. Quilted. Bound. Ugh!

So even though I have done 'some' stuff I still feel like a slug in the morning. I have to pep-talk myself into getting in gear. Maybe it's just January. At any rate I'm working hard on being more productive in this new year.

Thanks for being patient with me  :o)

Wow, I feel like I could have written this post! I totally lost momentum over the holidays and now I seem to be having trouble getting it back. Hopefully we'll both be back in the swing of things soon! : )

Have you tried oiling the walking foot? I put a tiny drop of oil on the lever of the walking foot, right where it goes into the boxy part. It's like having a brand new foot.

We've been late too and I know what you mean about the break, kind of hard to get going again (especially since my machine is having fits!!). Sounds like you're been busy though, a new collection and plenty of quilting, you're doing much better than me!!
