Excuses, Excuses

OK, some of you may remember that I not only changed my mind about a backing fabric for my Jane Stickle quilt, I also changed my mind about what thread to use in the quilting.

Here's a link to my post about my first thought about thread, and then a link to a post about changing my mind about the it.

This is more changes allowed. I am going with the rainbow of colors and will take the time to change thread to match the individual blocks. Luckily, I have a wide variety of colors already in my So Fine thread stash, which means I can't use the excuse of not having any thread as a reason to delay starting the quilting.

But I can think of another excuse...I'm seeing some family members this weekend that I haven't seen in a couple of years, so I have to take my DJ top with me to show off. I may not see these people again for quite a while and since they are the type to appreciate the work I've put into the top, I need to delay the quilting for just one more short week....

Now you come up with really good excuses that create days of delay and sound so reasonable that most people wouldn't notice they were excuses. When I am trying to delay committing to those first stitches, I usually can only come up with something like deciding it's time to clean the bathroom.

Excuses! Excuses! I thought you would be finished by the time I got home from wherever I am, but I'm heading home on Friday, so I guess I was wrong, since today is Thursday.
See you next week.
