The advantage of keeping something loaded and ready on the frame is that it lets you jump in and do a little bit of quilting when there is time. I quilted a few rows this morning before taking the girls out for lunch, shopping and a movie. I am back now and will get few more rows in before doing a bit of housekeeping and settling into essay grading. Summer isn't far off when I can quilt with no guilt. Until then I will tide myself over with a row at a time.
