An even bigger mess

20081023 (Small)

The reality of “making things” in a small home…
Um yeah, I should be using my sparse sewing time to finish more of those zippered pouches, but I got distracted by my half-finished quilt.
(that and the fact that putting in zippers does not combine with handling bickering teenagers).
I had to push all the furniture aside to lay it out, it is bigger than I intended. That does happen to me, it shows that I’m not good with measurements, doesn’t it?
I’m going to tie this one, it seems right for those simple squares. Also it just doesn’t fit through my simple machine.
Someday I’m going to buy myself a quilting hoop though and try to hand quilt.
