It is July - already! Half the year is gone - poof - just like that! This means one thing... I have some deadlines coming up.
September: Journeys Thru Art Group yearly project. It wasn't really due this early but we are trying to get them finished for entry into a show in November.
September: entries due for the Mancuso show in West Palm Beach (World Quilt Show Florida - SE States Competition)... do I have anything completed -- NO! Do I want to compete - YES! Dilemma... the story of my life!
October: UFO Challenge -- I brought in my UFO's and the guild members chose which one I needed to finish. Was I freaking nuts signing up for this? I must've been, but then again, if I can get this project done by September (early) then I will also have a competition quilt ready for the Mancuso show in November -- hmmm, maybe my subconscious was thinking ahead.
October: MCQ Guild Challenge. Yep, you remember last years project, Stella Luminosa, right? You remember how it lived in the "I hate your right now corner" for months. Well, guess what... I don't even have a project for this years challenge... not even a thought. What I do have is my official piece of swapped fabric and a list of rules. It must be a scrap quilt - 12 or more fabrics and must use the swapped fabric. Hmmm... should I run with this? I'm sure I can whip something up while I'm sleeping.
Thinking I seriously need a second machine because my customer schedule is booked solid through September! I don't know when I'll be able to quilt my own stuff... lack of sleep sounds like a viable option!
Here's the worst part -- I know there is one more item for my deadlines list, but I can't remember what it is, and no, there is no post-it note either... I'm in trouble!
Oh, and on top of that stuff, I have two super-secret thingy's coming up... can't wait to share, but not yet... soon, I hope!
