I had a busy weekend. On Sunday I didn’t do anything in the sewing room. That rarely happens anymore. I have time on my hands nowadays. I am actually starting to really like it.
We moved into this house in January of 2015. Everything was always full speed ahead. I am feeling really spoiled and wondering if I’m not completely okay with the change that the coronavirus has brought my way.
Saturday I loaded one of Kelli’s quilts on the frame. My goal is a minimum of one flimsy quilt top to get quilt each week. I really want to do more but one is the minimum. I’ve been doing okay with that goal so far….
I’m about half done with this one. This is a Quilted Twins free pattern called Show Off (Find free pattern HERE) Kelli did hers in blue 100% cotton shirts.
The Temecula stay at home sampler is done. They had a couple options for finishing. I haven’t decided what I want to do with mine. A pillow as one option and I’ve been thinking I might do that, we’ll see.
I have the fifth row on my Unity Sew Along quilt. I’m ready for the next clue. Here’s mine….
I saw someone put dark colors in their strips between the rounds. I’m wishing I would have done that.
In the last clue we could piece the neutral border rounds, I opted to just use one color. There is little difference in my background prints so I thought for me, it would be a waste of time.
I have my pieces cut for the Quilted Twins mystery. They aren’t sewn but I will get that finished one morning this week.
I’ve told you all that I’ve been cleaning my sewing room. Here is my pile at the end of the ironing board with my mystery stuff. I have to admit, I’ve kind of getting ready to be done with them all. I keep thinking I could clean this all up and put it away. I only have about a half of an ironing board that is open and can work on.
I told myself that as I clean I have to remember to find a space for projects that in the works and that the ironing board can’t be the space for them to be. UGH.
I keep making just a little more progress each day and I’m really happy with that. I’ll tell you more about that in tonight’s blog post.
I did get all the orange shirts deboned. This is ready for me to cut out my Oregon or Bust quilt. Soon I hope.
That’s what I’ve been busy with. I’ve been cross stitching at night but I’ll save that for another post.
What’s in store for next week?? More sew along/mystery work and more cleaning…always cleaning and perhaps another flimsy quilt top or two on the frame. Oh I wish I could get myself to do two more. I’ll admit to having to fight myself a little bit to load them and get going. Once they are on the frame, it doesn’t bother me to do them. It’s getting them loaded that gets me. Hopefully I can push through….Does anyone else feel like that about their unfinished quilt top pile. Please tell me I’m not the only one!!
