When I was teaching I would leave for school early, like 5:30, and then run up to the third floor of Hyde Park HS chanting, "Papers to grade, Papers to grade, I still have more papers to grade." Recently I have developed a new chant. "Shot Cottons and Wool, Shot Cottons and Wool, I will only quilt with Shot Cottons and Wool." Actually, I mean peppered shot cottons. The other night grandson Brandon admitted that he goes into a slight panic when he gets to the end of a binge watch if he doesn't have another watch lined up. I get it. That's exactly how I am with hand quilting. I've been working on hand-quilt ing this piece for Cristina since the beginning of October. It takes about two months to work my way through a big quilt. I'm maybe three weeks from completion and already I'm worrying about what to work on next.
