That's right! I have pondered over a common quilting conundrum and come up with my own mathematical relationship. It goes like this:
"Especially on holidays, opportunity to sew is inversely proportional to prepared work taken."
In other words, if you plan and prepare work to take along on holiday, you are unlikely to do it. The corollary is that the more opportunity you have to sew, the less work you have prepared.
I prepared lots. You guessed it. More than 2 weeks away from home, with hand projects galore, I barely sewed anything. I can present to you the sum total of my holiday sewing
Not a lot to show for so much opportunity! And to top it off, I missed all my favourite blogs. But now I have the pleasure of catching up on my blog reading.
I have foregone the usual new year resolutions although the perennial "I won't buy more fabric till I've used up my stash" did briefly flit across my conscience. Not wishing to set myself up for failure, I've just forgotten the whole 'change for good' idea.
Perhaps a challenge would be more interesting. For example, every quilt made (not just started) in 2011 must have some of this fabric in it:
I did manage to finish a Cherry tree quilt block on holidays. Check it out over here.
