Spinning my Wheels

I feel just like the back wheel of this bicycle, going round and around and not going anywhere. I've been working on a lot of projects and none of them have moved to a "picture taking" stage.

I'm still working on hand stitching  the binding of this quilt.
I haven't even started the binding on the blue and cream Pineapple Blossom I posted about a few weeks ago.

And I'm still working on all these projects as well as several hand quilting ones.  I even got sidetracked back to my hexi project, and I'm so close to finishing that I've put my Beyond the Cherry Tree blocks on hold while I persevere, I'm literally 3 flowers to the finish. Then the borders and quilting, but that's a whole separate issue. :-)

I spent Sunday afternoon with my gal pal Muriel and she taught me the art of putting in zippers.  I now have the backs to two pillows.  The front of these are hand quilted whole clothes, so stay tuned for something to be finished in the next while. 

In the meantime, I'm enjoying all my visits to fellow blogger sites, enjoying all the treasures that are being created all over the world.  Check out Dixie's blog to see a fantastic project, this is one of my favorite things that I've seen around blogland lately.

I know that spinning feeling. That is when I make myself work on a little instant gratification project. I have 2 queen size quilts to bind but keep putting it off.

I know the feeling of spinning the wheels. It is kind of fun that there is so much we can choose from.
I'm loving Dixie's project too! She tried talking me into doing one like it!!

Sometimes I feel like I'm spinning my wheels too, but then all of a sudden there's several things finished in a row? I guess we all have times like that?
I love Dixie's project and have been watching her progress. It's so cheerful!
