You know when you start a project and you have so much enthusiasm and energy for it and it all seems so great and fun? But then it just drags on and on and becomes like a weight around your neck and you wish that it was finished so you can move onto something else? That's where I am right now. And I'm sad to say, it's because of Super Mario.
I had to speed up my pace on this QAL to try and finish the quilt by 9/28 as that is the recipient's birthday. Because of that, I've been working on nothing but this quilt for the last 2 weeks or so and am becoming thoroughly sick of it. I thought I was very near the end on Thursday, as I had finished piecing the backing and was putting the sashing on the front.
So, instead of getting ready to sandwich on Friday, it was back to the machine for more blocks. Blocks made of tiny squares. Urgh! I decided to make 3 coin blocks to go across the top of the backing.
2 are done, 1 to go, and then I shall make it all fit. And hopefully still get this quilt finished by Friday!
I really like how the quilt is turning out, I'm just tired of working on it.
Now, grumble time is over, back to my machine....
