Only Three Fridays Until Christmas

By Mary Covey

Back in September, I wrote a blog post titled “Only 16 Fridays Until Christmas”. It was hard to believe then that there was so little time to get all our quilts and quilted projects finished.

Well it is even harder to believe that there are only three Fridays until Christmas as I am writing this post. For those of us that provide long arm machine quilting, these next few weeks are like Black Friday and Cyber Monday all rolled into one. We get up earlier and work later into the evening almost every day. Most of our clients have had a spot reserved for a while and are anxiously waiting to get their projects back. The quilts that needed to be shipped are already finished and delivered to the UPS store.

I usually stop quilting for others about a week before Christmas so that I can get my own projects finished. How about you? What deadlines have you set for yourself?  If you don’t have time to get your project quilted, wrap it with a note explaining that you will get the quilting done right after Christmas. Everyone will enjoy seeing the quilt top before and again after it is finished.

Taking time to enjoy Christmas is at the top of my project list. Hope you have made that a priority on your to do list this year.

Looking Forward to Autumn

By Mary Covey

Autumn

Gourds – www.marycoveydesigns.com

We have had some really hot days lately here in Oklahoma. The best part of the day is early in the morning. The rest of the day, I just want to be inside under the air conditioning. While I enjoy every season, I always look forward to autumn. The air is crisp and the colors of fall are outstanding. Just like I look ahead to cooler days, quilters should look ahead at getting fall projects quilted. Just  give me a call (918-299-2750)  to save a spot for your project so we can have it done in time to display this fall. And remember, it is never too early to put your name in line for your Christmas projects. Enjoy your summer. #Autumn #ChristmasProjects #longarmquilting
