Serious Sewing - Frolic Clue 7

Okay - just to let you know when I get serious about finishing a quilt. I commandeer the dinning room table.  I stop doing house work. Yep.  I said it.  I just don't get around to doing it.  If I'm real serious about finishing I don't cook.    
Being behind on the clues made me go into Serious Sewing Mode. I was worried what new hubby would say as I stopped sitting with him on the couch to watch movies, instead I sit on the floor to cut.  I took over the table   I stopped cleaning. (I'm not sure he has noticed that.)

He is so supportive. He saw I was sewing, he didn't say a word, just simply made us dinner.  He told me that as much as he loves for me to sit with him, he loves that I'm passionate about my quilting.   (Aww - he's a keeper!)

Frolic Clue #8 comes out today.
 (clap, clap, clap. I'm sew excited!)

Whew!  I finished Clue # 7 last night at 10:30!
I don't usually stay up that late, but I was in "gonna get this done" mode!

Pinwheels are always fun to sew.  Most of my points are good.  A couple are so-so.  I can live with that.
 Sew - I know what I'm doing this weekend. 
What about you?

Have a great weekend
and Happy Stitching!



  1. Lots of great variety in your block colors. It's been fun to follow along as folks work on Frolic, but I am just saving the clues for another time. But I need to clean all the contracts for work off my dining room table soon so I can use it to sandwich a small quilt.

  2. thanks for a cute chuckle in reading your post--you go girl--no housework and no cooking will produce a quilt in no time!!!
    luv, di
    ps--who does housework anyways!!!

  3. LOL great way to get your Clue done..
    Good on hubby cooking dinner ...

  4. You are sewing with a vengeance, aren't you. Your pinwheels are beautiful. So glad you did not go hungry....what a wonderful husband to cook the dinner.

  5. Definitely a keeper Linda! Great work with the pinwheels - I am looking forward to seing what comes next. xx

  6. It's so exciting getting swept up in a project and just not wanting to stop! It sounds like hubby is very supportive!! I see that finishing Frolic is your OMG - good luck with that - hope you find plenty of sewing time!

  7. I definitley do the same - ditch the housework and cooking for a finish! Glad that your hubby is very supportive. Lovely colours for your pinwheels x

  8. You were wise to get serious about keeping up since the reveal was yesterday. I'm hoping to get a block or two made today.
