Last week I did so good and got LOTS and LOTS of sewing done. This week….almost none.
When I left you I was here…..
Now I’m here…. Not a lot further. See?The center is together …no borders yet.
Carver looked at it and said, “tute!” (his version of cute)
I had secretly hoped to have it done and finished for a Friday showing but I doubt that will happen. Going to the doctor really slowed me down…lots. But taking care of myself is more important than a quilt. WAY.
Also Karl came home on Saturday so everyone has been home and will be home all week to soak up as much Karl time in as we can before he heads back to Texas on Friday.
I can’t believe how much a few days away from home put me behind. I guess it goes to show I do occasionally accomplish something now and then.
I don’t know quite how I feel…my copy of Bonnie Hunter’s new book came,
Lou Ann of Lou Ann’s Quilt Garden & Retreat got them into her shop and sent one to me.
So did I reach my goal of having all of the quilts done before her new book came out? Hmm… everywhere that I’ve looked says her new book will be released on December 7th. I’m taking that as the date I need to have the quilt finished by to reach my goal of making all of the books in Bonnie Hunter’s String Fling book. I think that’s fair, don’t you?
The kids will all be home this week. Some of them for several days. I had hoped to get a quilt machine quilted for a wedding we have on Saturday but I am now thinking that I’ll probably give a quilt I already have done.
Maybe Bricks and Stepping Stones?? What do you think?
(Read about that quilt here) I think that’s a nice quilt that anyone could like.
I should probably cut another one of those out, sew it up and have it on hand…Not now though.
Next week will be our last link up. My goal was to run the link up to challenge myself to finish my quilts from String Fling…and I’m about done…I hope you are too. It’s time for me to think of a new challenge for myself. Any ideas?
