Another 5 10 20

Another 5 10 20, originally uploaded by rkkilmer.
So, this is what I did with my evening. Actually, not my entire evening. More like the last 2 hours. With my little ones, finding time to quilt is a challenge. Ok, honest truth? Finding time to think is a challenge!! However, with potty training so close that I can see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, I have taken to spending some time each evening in my quilt studio to work. My friend Robin suggested that I try just utilizing snippets of time here and there to sew. She was right. As long as I have a way to keep the munchkins away from my work area, I can leave everything out and ready to go so that it's all available to me whenever I find a spare moment. This has been a revelation. I have sincerely gotten more done in the last 2 months than I have in the last 2 years. My quilting really got a jump start when I spent a weekend in Laguna Woods on a Two Wacky Woman retreat. I think I have blogged about it before. I am lucky enough to belong to the most amazing friendship group. 2 of our founding members started a quilt retreat business a few years ago. They do such a great job that the retreats fill up more than 6 months in advance! They have a website. Check them out if you get a Moment they are also both very talented designers and sell their original quilt patterns as well. This quilt top is one of them. I am so excited to get this one put together. Now, when the Tula Pink fabric I ordered online over the weekend arrives, I will be able to get started immediately on the next project! Ha, I think I may be hooked :)))))
