So time continues to refuse to stand still for me. So rude. Since time won't play nice I've been trying to be diligent about working on my beading a little every day. It's the tortoise that will win this race! So I've got about half of the green beads done on my panel. I'm a little discouraged about how slow it's going but really I shouldn't be. I'm still figuring out what I'm doing and haven't found my rhythm yet. Once I get into my groove progress will speed up... it's the same story with all my projects.

What I really want to do it get started on one of the three fabulous 18th century outfits I've got planned for the summer. But I can't. I've got a commission due in a few weeks, my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary party at the end of the month to help plan and real life to deal with.

Right now of course I'm not working on any of those - the day's priority is a quilt square for a friendship quilt. Normally I'm not really a quilter but this was a special project I had to be a part of. So yeah, it was due on Sunday and I'm just now starting it... this is my life.
I looked online for a pattern on Monday, decided which one to do yesterday and just got back from the quilt store with the fabric I needed. It's in the washer right now, which is why I'm online killing time. I'm hoping to make it a one day project. Less would be even better so I can work on that commission. I mean it's just one quilt square right? Ha! Famous last words since quilts really don't like me. They don't play nice, quilts. I think they are like dogs and cats - they know the people who are just tolerating them or don't really like them and then they try to mess with your head. It's true.
