I was busy this weekend. Saturday I was home alone all day. I loved it. I needed it.
The extra rows got put on Bricks and Stepping Stones.
Right now it’s about 72″ x 81″.
It’s a wedding present. The debate is on…leave it as is? add more rows? put a border on?
What would you do? Right now I am leaning towardsleaving it as is. It’s a decent size. Not huge but definitely usable.
After that was done I decided to keep on with my cleaning…I’ve been crazily cleaning and reorganizing. It’s been wonderful. We’ve been in the house over a year but there are lots of things that don’t have their forever home. Saturday was sewing room day. I’ve tucked things into the closet or under quilting machine but haven’t completely thought their purpose and place through.
I was suppose to go to a sewing at the school but I just didn’t feel up to it. Working and tidying at my own pace at home seemed like that would be a better option for me.
I’ve said that I currently have charity quilts coming out my ears. I reorganized all of them, took count and made a plan of attack. I did that with the all the left over batting strips too.
I pulled out half of the things and put in another shelf. I think I am going to keep my eyes open and find one more set of metal shelving units. I just need the cheap ones that are narrow. Funny thing is that last year I bought two and gave them both away to the kids. Oh well. I’ll find another set…auction season is coming after all.
Once I got everything that was going into the closet back in I decided to start on one of the charity quilts. I decided to see how many I could get done by using up only scrap batting…
I really need to get a better handle on keeping things to keep a plan in place. I’m kind of silly. I make rules and games for myself. The new plan is that if I have more than 5 charity quilts here I have to stop everything and get a few of them done….I have LOTS of work to do until I get to that spot but I’m going to work hard on them until I get them under control so keep watching the blog. If I can manage to stay active over my treatment time LOTS of charity are going to get finished…If I don’t feel good then I’ll just slowly plug away on them. It’s a good thing that I like working on them. There are close to 30 here. Oh my. I don’t want them to live here for forever.
I do have a stack of charity quilts here that need binding. I almost thought about having a binding party…That might be fun. Any takers?
Today I’m hooking up with Patchwork Times.
