Crafting versus everything else

I got two little stars pieced yesterday because I had to go out and run some errands in the morning.  Today I have to get a shower and I should go food shopping.  I also should bake something for Evan to take to school for snack time.  So hard when the rest of my life interferes with my hobbies!

But I will get the stars done!  Just to note, these small stars, which end up as a 9.5 inch square with background pieces added, are made of 24 pieces of fabric and 23 individual seams.  I can do 3 in a day if I don’t do much else.  The points and the seams all need to match up precisely, and it needs to come out square, so it takes a while to do.  Next time you see a hand-made quilt selling for over $1000, this is why.
