Weekend minutes

/ Sunday, 24 January 2010 /
This term I have a heavier teaching load than I did last term, and I'm really feeling the pinch when it comes to my quilting productivity. Last weekend I pinned this quilt but it was only last night that I got a chance to start the quilting. One of my courses is a new prep, so I'm devoting a lot of time to getting things read properly and seminar material organized. I'm not really complaining, since I do love my job - not to mention that the university writes my paycheques and therefore indirectly supplies my stash habit!
My first granny square
Progress in crochet-land continues apace. Perhaps I am being kind to myself by measuring progress in inches rather than miles. This granny square still looks pretty weedy and off-kilter, and I tell no word of a lie when I say this is probably granny square, take 200. Never mind, it does look better than the previous 199 efforts! I'm enjoying learning to crochet - and granny squares are nice interleaved with course prep. It's easier to ration, as well. I can tell myself I'll do one round on the granny square and then I'll read half of a journal article, and it actually works - trying to work that kind of a deal with quilting is a mug's game!

I like your method of work some then play some. Your quilt looks great as does your granny square.

Fortunately, my work is my play. Playing is just fun. Your playtime was productive and beautiful!
