What I’m Working On…

Kelli stopped by to sew on Saturday but we didn’t get much sewing done.  We ended up spending part of the day trying to figure out Karl’s taxes.  Apparently when we filed this spring they were rejected….we didn’t know until the refund check didn’t arrive.  UGH.  Then we worked on designing invitations for an upcoming get together.  Then it was picking green beans and finally time to sew.

I can’t show much of what I was working on….but here’s what Kelli was up to.

See the cover quilt on the magazine.  That’s the quilt.  Plans are that it will be a donation quilt for our new Do Good Deeds Quilt Share.  We don’t have a recipient in mind for this one yet but figured we wanted to get a few tops done in case a need arises.

I was busy working on next month’s Quilt Square Quilt Along block.  I can’t believe that July is just around the corner.

After working on those things for awhile Kelli threw a revolt and said that’s it…just for a little bit we are sewing something else.  Next thing I knew she had papers cut and strips sorted and we were making red string triangles.  She is bound and determined to get some of the Bonnie Hunter’s Talkin’ Turkey blocks done before Bonnie’s book, Spring Fling, arrives in July.

I have seven triangles done and a few more in process.  I am excited to be working on these even though I definitely didn’t need another project started.

Country Threads is hosting their Big Event in a couple weeks.  They always have great sales and good things going on.  I am planning to take inventory of what I want to sew, what fabric I have and what I need.  Right now, I am hoping for some neutrals with a whitish background rather than a cream background….I have more figuring to do though.

  1. Sometimes things get in the way and sometime the worst one is ourselves. I completely understand droping one project and working on something else. It works for me. Good luck to both of you and happy stitching.

  2. Sounds like a fun and busy time. Sometimes the projects we think we need to do just aren’t the ones we want to do. Hope you found something to inspire you.

    I just finished that Merry-go-round quilt that Kelli is working on! I love mine. We did one as a retreat project in May and most of us worked on our own. So many different versions. I did mine in pastel colors because I had a bunch of scraps in those colors and I really like how mine turned out.
