Today is the last day for the SewPad free shipping special.
Gary the owner of the company wrote and said, “We’ll be doing a Mother’s Day promo starting on May 7th and running through midnight on May 10th. Free priority shipping. Promo Code is MOMDAY.”
If you didn’t get the goodies you wanted for Mother’s Day, here’s the chance to treat yourself.
I had a great Mother’s Day weekend but I’ll tell you more about that in a post later this week. For now, I’m going to tell you what I’ve been up to in the sewing department. The short answer is not much.
When I was at Kelli’s house helping her I picked up a quilt top she had finished.
Kelli did her version in reproduction fabrics. I just love it that way. It’s a scrappy beauty for sure.
I took it home with the intention of quilting it for her then got looking at it. When she was here I asked her if she wanted a border put on it. She does so I’ll be doing that before I quilt it.
I also grabbed this box of shirts at Kelli’s. I’m deboning them and putting them in my stash with the understanding that Kelli can raid my stash anytime.
I worked on them when I could this week. I planned on three a day. I kept up until this weekend hit. Wowza it was too busy to worry about shirts. I’ll finish them up this week.
Besides that, I worked on my Lori Holt Red Sampler Quilt Along. Here’s how far I am…
I have all of the blocks finished except this last one needs to be trimmed down.
The new blocks are released today so I’ll be working on them this week. I’ve really only sewing these blocks this week. I’ve had so much family here and yard work to do…and helping Kelli that I really haven’t had any time to even think about sewing.
I think for me quilting has turned into a little more of a fall-winter activity. I never dreamed I would be so busy with family 8 years ago when Kalissa was just graduating from high school that quilting wouldn’t be the priority it once was.
No worries…I’m not giving up quilting. I’m just enjoying the days that come my way and currently, there’s just not a lot of time to quilt.
