I did spend one afternoon working on a machine embroidered sweatshirt for me. I am so ready for spring to come that I thought this would be perfect to wear over the next few weeks. (One thing I marked off the goal list this past week.) Hum, I should have picked a different color for the "S" as it does seem to blend in with the shirt. Ok, so I am awaiting "pring." It was about 100 minutes of sewing and then you add the color change. No wonder it took all of one afternoon.
Pat has been busy the past couple of weeks too. He made this gorgeous oak quilt ladder for me. Left pic is the beginning of the ladder. Right is the finished, empty ladder. Below is the ladder in place with some quilts hanging on it.
Hum, I think I need to add some brighter quilts to the rack. The top one and the bottom one are QOVs waiting for me to figure out how to make a label on the embroidery machine. Plus, I can't decide whether to enter the red, white and blue one in the Faithful Quilter's show this year. Decisions, decisions. I can only enter 5 and I've got 2 chosen already.
Next up is the weekly goals. I wasn't all that successful on getting things done this week. But I did read about 4 books. Nothing hard, just light entertaining fair including Janet Evanovich's newest Stephanie Plum book, Takedown Twenty. It was another entertaining romp through the life of a not so talented bounty hunter.

It's time for me to head up to the studio. Since Pat retired we work out at the Y first thing on Monday mornings. He is a morning person and I am definitely a night owl. He has to
drag me out of bed wake me up on work out mornings. We do our normal routine after getting back so I really don't get to writing this until 10 am or so. (I know I could write this early and then schedule it to post but, honestly, that just isn't going to happen!)
