Whew! . . . what a busy, busy week!
But I know that I'm not alone - as there are barely over six weeks before Fall Quilt Market - most all of the designers & manufactures who are getting things ready for Market. . . are in the midst of what we "lovingly" refer to as 'crunch time'. For me what that means is that sewing, stitching, binding, writing, creating layouts, & more of the same - are what will fill each & every day for the next six weeks. . .
Then there's the last three days before leaving for Market. . . when there's no time to finish anything new. . . but then the reality of packing my suitcase & the panic of, "what am I going to wear?". . . This usually leads to at least one or two trips to my local J.Jill store (my favorite!!!) & then a sigh of relief. For me - there actually comes a time - about a week before Market - when I really look forward just to getting to Market. . . because it feels like that will be easier & much more relaxing than preparing for it!
But for today. . . after a week of deadlines & meetings. . . I need to spend at least a little time in my laundry room. I can get by with t-shirts & shorts around the house & the studio. . . but I'm about at the point that I will run out of those pretty soon!
So while I'm there. . . I figure today is a good day to get through all the towels, bath rugs . . . & anything else I can find that needs a good run through the wash cycle! The best part of doing laundry is that I can get some stitching done in-between cycles. . . (a win-win in my book!)
. . . & maybe. . . I may just go find that latest J.Jill catalog. . .
. . . just in case!
