I hosting an auction here on the blog. If you missed it, you can find it HERE. It ends today at noon central time. If you’re looking for sewing machine attachments for your vintage machines, this is the sale you’ve been looking for.
I wasn’t at the sewing machine very much this week at all. I did manage to get the Unity Quilt Along blocks sewn. Being there was so many, I guess that really wasn’t a small feat.
I’m writing this post on Sunday night so the plan is, after I’m done writing this, to head upstairs and get them sewn onto the quilt. I am so happy this quilt is coming to a close. I’ve really enjoyed making it and the round robin style is appealing to me. I’m ready for the mess of it to get cleaned up and put away though. I’ll be happy to have another quilt finished. I’m hoping by next Monday I’ll have a finish to show. That’s an advantage to having my own longarm.
I did work on the Quilted Twins mystery for just a bit. Not much at all really. I thought I had all the first blocks done but soon discovered that I was short two blocks and finished them but that’s all I did on that.
When Kelli was home she started cutting out this….Sorry…not much of the sneak peak is it?
It’s a project we plan on submitting so don’t want to reveal everything at this point. I did get quite a bit sewn on it. I’m hoping it becomes a top this week…but who knows…I think I’m making to big of plans. I’ve been learning that I’m not accomplishing as much as I thought I could most days.
I spent a little time on the longarm. The big block of the month is off and finished.
I also did two baby quilts that were in the pile. These all need a binding.
I’m hoping to get another quilt on the frame this week but I need to piece backs. I have four big quilts left to machine quilt and then I’m caught up. I’ve been a little bit of a downer about all of them but in reality, I should be celebrating how farm I’ve some with the stack. I’ve even done quilts that weren’t in the stack so no more beating myself up about that…right?!
More totes came in the mail so more happened in the closet. I’m getting so close to having the closed finished but had to order one more set of totes so now I’m waiting for them to show up. Amazon tells me my package has shipped but it’s stuck in San Bernardino California. It’s been there since the 12th. Hmm. Once it gets here I’m stopping everything and finishing the last bit of organizing I have to do. I’m going to be so happy to have the closet just the way I want it.
Something else on my to do list to make a list of UFOs. I want to have less of them and get that all tackled. If Mary over at Country Threads’ Chicken Scratch blog does a new UFO challenge, I’m definitely joining.
One thing I do know for sure, there is never a lack of projects. So, I’ll just keep plugging away on them, eventually I’ll get to them… In the meantime, I’m having fun and really that’s all that matters.
