though my quilting time is focused on the scrappy pinwheel, i took a short detour to this small piece yesterday. it was service day for the car, 2 hours' worth, so i pulled this out and put it in the frame to take with me to pass the time and, hopefully, close in on a june finish. in the time i was waiting, i got this nearly half quilted. it's free form, no marking, and i can definitely finish this in june....the scrappy finish is iffy due to weather and warmth of working on the wool quilt batt. **** since retreat is getting closer, i need to make up a couple of kits to take with me, in addition to the civil war diary quilt project. **** i haven't worked on "just takes 2" for about a week now and in 2 days more blocks will be posted. in a week filled with errands plus work, i've been hard pressed to find much sewing time at all. between the car mechanic, doctor, dentist and a bit of grocery shopping, not to mention a few household chores, the old viking and little phoebe have been found wanting. i hope that changes soon.
