I spent much of last week not feeling well. It was nothing too serious. I’d say a regular winter cold. We’re all being cautious with childcare so I had a couple of days off. One would think I would have sewn. Nope…I really didn’t.
Instead, I did little jobs. I’ll share more of them in tomorrow’s post. Instead, I did little jobs that required some moving around, and then I did some sitting jobs, trying to take it easy.
One of the things I did was change the bedding and pull out a spring quilt. Rosie was the perfect helper…
I also opened the windows and aired the house out on Saturday. Rosie had a blast with that too.
I changed the bedding and quilt in the south bedroom too. I love this quilt on this bed with the blue walls. This is Scrap Crystals, another Bonnie Hunter design. It can also be found in her book More Adventures with Leaders and Enders. You can read the whole story on this quilt HERE.
I love so many of the quilts in that book. Here’s proof. I made up the quilt in Karl’s old room and guess what? I put another quilt from the book on that bed. This is Winston Ways. It is also a Bonnie Hunter design that can also be found in her book More Adventures with Leaders and Enders. You can read the whole story on this quilt HERE
So that’s that beds at my house…all decked out in quilts from the More Adventures with Leaders and Enders book.
As far as sewing, I did a little. Not much. I added the twosies onto these…
I didn’t iron them. I’ll do that this week at naptime during childcare.
I made two blocks for my next deadline quilt. I’m pushing the deadline on that again. I need a dozen more blocks made, then time to assemble. It’s due on April 15th so I’m okay…but I do want to get it finished.
I probably should have put in some time on it while I was off but, you know, I think I just needed a little downtime, and sometimes, that’s okay.
I intended to loaded Karl’s quilt onto the frame but opted for family super on Sunday night instead.
Other than that, not much happened as far as quilting goes. My goal for this week is to work on my deadline quilt…and hopefully to finish Karl’s quilt. That’s enough of a goal. Once I get those two things done, I’m stopping and cleaning the sewing room. It’s a mess!! I’d love to get a little more spring cleaning done too.
