Are you there time? It's me Heather...

Awesome idea: CHECK.  New fabric: CHECK.  Time: NO CHECK! What the...

Well, sometimes things just get in the way of working on a new project... no comment; trust me, it isn't interesting.

I have a list of stuff I want to do but just can't seem to get them all started, much less finished.  I am making a handbag for a co-worker and have an AWESOME new pattern in mind for her.  It isn't really a pattern; more just an idea I had one night that I thought she would really like.  I have been trying to get it started for like 2 weeks now it seems.  I guess I always have tomorrow right?!  The impatient, spoiled, get-everything-I-want girl in me is having a hard time dealing with that.  I guess I will live though.

On a happier note, I did finish my son's, LittleMoo's, quilt top last night!  I think it looks great; I can tell I am improving.  My daughter, MiniMoo, thinks so too and I am a little worried she might actually want it more then the one I made her.  Go figure huh!  I spend HOURS making her my first quilt, she helps pick out the fabric, she participates the entire time and she LOVES her brother's quilt and likes hers.  What is that?  All that is left of LittleMoo's is the backing, layering, quilting and binding.  Good thing I am almost done.

So, photos, tomorrow, focus...
