I had such a busy-busy week last week. We had the garage sale, the girls were all here for the weekend, Carver turned one. I didn’t think I would accomplish much as all…but I did manage to get a few more string blocks done for my spider web quilt. Honestly it’s been stolen moments here and there as that was the only time I had.
Then Friday night after the garage sale closed we were visiting over a glass of wine and before I knew it, Kelli was trimming the stack of string blocks I had done, Kayla was knitting and I was de-papering. I ended up getting LOTS more done than I intended. We trimmed and de-papered 56 of them… Whoot-Whoot!!
I didn’t count them immediately. I figured I was close to enough. Then Sunday morning I got up early and sewed a few more.
After counting I had 252 finished and need 256. In Sunday morning’s sewing session I did 10 more so I have all I need plus a few. That means all I need to do is trim and de-paper these and I’m finished. I was so excited as I thought I could clean up the mess from string piecing in my sewing room but I’m planning a scrappy border so that likely won’t be happening until that’s sewn.
All of this is screeching to a halt though. I have to finish that wedding quilt…and then a quilt for publication. I’m gonna still squeeze in a little me time sewing not matter what I have on the burner. That’s how I keep sane!!!
Those of you who went to the retreat…how are your retreat projects coming? I’m so excited that this is so close to the assembly stage!!
