I don't know why, but I've always loved Moleskines! They're my guilty pleasure... I have tons of them. Even a recipe-book Moleskine!
So of course, I do my quilting sketching in one. I'm a visual person; I need to sketch out and see what I'm doing and how it's going to look. It also helps with counting how many pieces I'll need.
And I've made some slow progress on the footballs...
Slow progress is still progress, though!
