Every day I have been able to work on the quilt - for large spans of time (since the last film wrapped) - he has managed to wander in to the area and question me as to how much more there is to go and, when do you think it will be finished?
"Will you be done in time for the first of the contests?" (which is coming up very soon).
It's nerve-wracking enough to bear down with my own sets of pressures, but his constant reminders of how much - or rather how little - time is left before the deadline, "...and you're not even quilting it, yet" is driving me to distraction.
I am now beginning to allow reality firmly in 'the door.'
"No," I reply. "Most likely I will not be done for mid-November."
This is a large change from my last response of "I'm still shooting for it. It could still happen."
In all honesty, there is really still too much to do, and I utilized too much precious time over the last three weekends doing other activities instead of keeping my head down, my eyes on the prize and keeping my nose to the grindstone. Foolish!
But I am very gratified that Brian wants to see this one finished. Even more so that he wants to help me get it to that point!
