In the sewing department…I’ve really done nothing this week. The summer schedule is kicking my sewing time to the curb.
Carver’s ball schedule kicked in last week and he had a game one of the evenings so I went to that…I had my kids all here for supper two of the nights. I had Kalissa’s kids most of the days last week and will again this week. It’s all okay. It happens.
As of yesterday, the flying geese were still sitting on my kitchen island waiting for me to iron them. I didn’t even get that done during the week. AHH!! Gannon and I walk and Carver rides his bike to ball practice. Practice is an hour and then we walk back. That takes most of the morning time up. So even little tasks like ironing haven’t gotten done.
Finally on Sunday afternoon I carved out a few hours and decided I better just get these ironed.
I got that done and then…I started sewing them together.
If you missed my much requested tutorial on flying geese, you can find it HERE. If you missed my tutorial on bonus triangles, you can find that HERE.
I sewed and sewed as quickly as I could as I was going to the movies later in the day. For the most part…I didn’t get a lot done that looks like anything but I’m taking it as progress. I think these next couple of weeks are going to a little busier that most so I don’t think there will be a lot of progress on the sewing front. We’ll see.
I did manage to get a few more rows machine quilted on my double wedding ring quilt but that too didn’t get finished…and so it goes.
It’s far enough that it is now off the floor and that’s what I really like. Then I don’t have to worry about Rosie damaging the batting.
I did some work on EQ (Electric Quilt), the quilt designing software. I got two ideas floating around in my head for a couple of simple quilts that would use up a lot of strips which is awesome because once I get the UFOs in focus, using up some of the strips is next on the list. I’ll share those another day.
That was short and sweet for this week’s sewing update. Please share what you’re working on. I’d love to know.
