I am like an old broken record telling you I didn’t get much done in the sewing room again…UGH. I keep thinking things will slow down and they don’t. This week I worked Monday-Wednesday. Thursday I ended up doing errands. Originally I was going to do them on Friday but my aunt passed away so Friday I spent in Minnesota at the funeral and visiting family. Then Friday evening I had company and had company through noon on Sunday. So…the weekend snuck away from me as did sewing time. It’s all good though as even though there was a funeral, we were all able to get together and it was nice. I’ll tell you more about that in the evening blog post….lets get on to sewing…
I FINALLY cut out the fabric Ila gave me for my Tribute to Judie quilt.
I’m so happy that there was another of this print. I really like it. It’s all cutout, now I just need to get sewing and get the center together. I already have all the star blocks made. This is the oldest UFO I have and I’d really like to get it finished…SOON??!!
I think I’m going to have to make some commitment to this or some deadline for me to work towards. I’ve just not had time. But, one step closer is one step closer.
I’ve REALLY been in a cleaning mood. I guess maybe more than cleaning…maybe an organizing mood. I had a blog reader sent me some Frolic leftovers along with some recycled shirts. Originally she planned on making shirt quilts but decided it wasn’t for her. She passed her shirt to me. YAHOO!! Best news…they are the colors I happen to be currently collecting. I want to make a white, yellow, and blue quilt. These are all those colors.
Here they are all cut and ready to be used as fabric. I’m so happy and excited to have these. Thank you so much to the generous blog reader. These made my day!!!
I also finished the longarm work on my Oregon or Bust quilt. Here Rosie and Izzy are showing it off. So cute!! The plan for this is to get it bound one night after work. I already have the binding strips ready to go. It shouldn’t take long to finish. This has been a bucket list quilt for me so I’m extra excited to see this one come of the finish!!
I did some organizing in the garage and had all of this ready to go to the Cresco Ladies. They picked it all up one day when I was gone and left me with a bag of quilt tops. Does anyone need some? I’m hoping so!!
I have a few others besides the one that they sent as well. I like to have the quilt tops out to finishers and not languishing in my garage. I have a goal to keep the garage more organized and having these out to finishers would be great!! Feel free to drop me a note at email@example.com if you are interested in finishing some quilt tops and donating them to your favorite worthy charity.
That’s all I have for you this week. I’m slowing plugging away. Hopefully, soon I’ll get more sewing time!!
