I'm an idiot! Well not really, but there are times when I wonder where my brain has gone. Obviously on vacation! And it was only when I read Sew Fresh Quilts blog this morning that I realised what I'm doing wrong.
Well, not what I'm doing wrong, but what I'm not doing. And it was because of Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts that I purchased them. THEM being some labels. When I'm making these deadline quilts, they usually go out of the office WITHOUT a label. I know! Not good - but I do tack my business card to the quilts. What I should be doing is putting my Crazyquilteronabike label in the binding like Lorna does. GOD - what an idiot. I've had them since February and not used a single one. When I get home, I'm digging those labels out and they are going to sit on the sewing machine, the cutting mat or wherever I need to put them so I remember them.
DUH DUH DUH!!!!!
I didn't rip up the little page from the book yet. I thought I better wait until I hear that the quilt has arrived - then my job is done and I'm off the hook. So hopefully I can rip up that deadline page tonight.
Do you want to know the funny thing?? So one deadline is done - right? Guess what happened yesterday??? Yep - not one, not two, not three, not four, BUT FIVE new deadlines were added. FIVE - how did that happen???? And there will be more. How many more? No idea, but quilt ideas are spewing out of my brain faster than water from a leaky bucket. And I'm super excited! (as usual).
When I got home last night, I retired to the backyard so I could have a quiet moment reading my book. Nope - not happening! Those girls - well - it's like "MOM - we've been cooped up all day - we need to show you how we play!"
Have I shown you this little project??? It was a give away from QuiltCon. I may have shown it. It takes FIVE 5-inch squares to make this. The pattern isn't on the Northcott website, but I'll try to get it loaded soon. It's a cool use of 5 inch squares and very little waste. It was one of those projects where I had to make something with what I had. But imagine making this with whatever fabrics? Scraps?? It would be awesome.

On that note, I've a super busy day today. I went to the gym. I didn't want to go to the gym, but I needed to go to the gym. I was dragging my butt before I got there and after - well I feel energised. Sometimes we just have to push!
Have a super day!!!!
