Yes, it’s a Christmas quilt and yes, it would be nice to get it finished.
The reason why I said I’m not even going to attempt to finish it — we’re closing on the house very soon and then the construction of the sewing room will begin. My priorities for November are to get the fire quilts finished and get the several UFOs I’ve been working on, that happen to be strewn about the sewing room, finished and start getting things ready for the movers to come in and once again move us to a new, and hopefully, final destination! Probably every trip over to the new house, we’ll bring a car load of things we can do with out — like boxes that have not been opened since August. It’s amazing how many boxes say “Judy’s Bathroom”. I’ll never need to buy body lotion or scrub. We will not move any fabric or sewing items over til the new room is finished. No need having to work around “stuff”.
We’re planning on moving into the new house some time right after the first of the year. Since we’ll probably be packed up and since most of Christmas decorations are in storage, except the poor Christmas tree that has been wet twice already from basement floods, there probably won’t be much decorating around here this year.
And, since Chad will probably only have off Christmas Day and can’t come here to spend Christmas with us, and since we’d be in the Motel 6 which is the only hotel there that allows dogs, and since no restaurants are open on Christmas Day there, my guess is we’ll be working out at the house on Christmas Day .. maybe eating a ham sandwich.
Since our house in MO is sitting empty, the thought crossed my mind . . no, they wouldn’t let us go in and sleep on a blowup bed and fix Christmas dinner in my old kitchen but it was a thought! 🙂
So, when I said my November UFO isn’t getting touched, it isn’t because I can’t do it or don’t want to do it . . it’s because there are other priorities for the next two months.
