Today is a busy day..we have online quilting yards sales going on too. I’m cleaning my quilting room closets. Check out the sale here.
We had a busy weekend. I have photos that I plan to share with you this week just to prove it….I had hoped to get the borders on my Lazy Sunday Mystery quilt this weekend but as I am typing this on Sunday night…I have absolutely no progress!
I sent out a challenge to all our readers to share what their Labor Day weekend goal was. Then, Tuesday, I’d pick a winner and give away the book, Traditions for Elm Creek Quilts by Jennifer Chiaverini. There’s still time to set a goal and share it for your chance to win the book. You can find the post, the details and the place to sign up by following this link.
So..will I make my goal?? I’m not sure. If Hubby quits working early today and we go work on the house in town, I probably won’t get it done. If Hubby works a full day, I’ll probably get the top finished.
This week I also need to pull out my UFO #12 to be completed for September. It’s a stitching project with wool. Honestly, I really don’t think there is a lot to do on it. So far, I have kept up by finishing a UFO each month. You can see my UFO list here.

I just reviewed my plans for the Labor Day weekend and am happy to report that the quilt is bound (and slept under!), and my quilt squares are pressed and squared up- just waiting for assembly now.
I cut the binding for another quilt top last night, and will try to get that sewn on and ready for hand sewing down this afternoon.
A trip to the grocery store is in order early this morning, but the rest of the day will be devoted to quilting chores.
Oh goodness, love the blocks and the colors of that quilt, just gorgeous.
Very pretty quilt. I have been finding that I have not been getting much done over the past couple of weeks. However, life is about to get very quiet soon and then there will be plenty of time to work on stuff. Enjoy your day!!
I had a 4 day week end. Got pictures organized, house cleaned & COMPLETLY dusted, 1 lap top quilt ready to go to the quilter, sewing half way cleaned, a large family gathering @ our house for a ‘Cream Can’ cookout. I think that is quite a bit!
LOL the best laid plans of mice and quilters!!! I had planned on quilting all day. I have a charity quilt on the frame that I have been having a lot of difficulty getting finished. So the PLAN was to get it done.
What happened was about 20 relatives and grands coming over and a cookout. Instead I did work 1 hr on the long arm, and then about 6 hrs cleaning! before help arrived.
My goal is to do the quilting on four potholders each day until I have my quota of 20 done for selling at my guild’s boutique table first weekend of October. So far, for today, I have two done!
