What I’m Working On…

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!!

  1. Baby gifts have taken over my quilting time right now. I am still L&Eing pieces for Thanks to You, but that one is moving right along as I am whipping out star points like crazy. Have to start putting them into blocks, so I know what I have left to make. Last count was still 101 blocks to make.
    Also need to set aside some time to clean OUT the sewing room.

  2. I am working my Points quilt, and today I sewed some spiderwebs too. I have been piecing 4 inch log cabin blocks made with 1 inch logs, I got the 500th one done and now will need to figure out a lay out. We’ve had the grands here a few different times and the garden has been keeping me busy with canning, but it is always nice to fit in a little sewing!
