I have a good friend who casually asked me if I would be willing to make her a quilt. She'd pay me and everything, but she just wanted a quilt that she could use as a picnic blanket, or around the house.
This friend happened to have a birthday coming up (and is also a great gift giver, the kind that you never know what to get them), so I convinced myself that I could make her a quilt in 2 weeks. It happened to be right in the middle of a busy two weeks, and I managed to get the quilt top done (another scrappy trip around the world), and then my energy petered out and I didn't finish it. I ended up getting her something else, and decided I'd save this for a Christmas gift or something.
It's still sitting in my sewing room, it's May and I just haven't had time to baste it. Now it's HOT and HUMID, and I have even less motivation to work on it. Maybe once the kids are out of school (2 more weeks), we will be bored enough.
