You might have noted I now have a floating Goals list -- sometimes I post on Tuesday and sometimes on Wednesday. Yet, I always use Tuesday at the end of the day as my cut off for getting things done even if the blog post itself doesn't get done until sometime Wednesday. I'll confess right now I actually got less done this past week than I expected to. I got immersed in a book and had a fight with Ruthie the long arm. Sometimes she won, and sometimes I did.
Here's how I did last week:
Trim log cabin blocks ✔️started
Start quilting customer quilt ✔️just 4 more rows out of 14 total
Make 1 scrap basket in red — made fabric but didn’t start sewing the basket yet
Bind one of my quilts — started
Put borders on baby quilt. ✔️ Isn't this a cute little (40" sq or so) quilt? (I had to hang this on the ironing board because the design wall is full of log cabin blocks!)
Hum, some of the pinwheel blocks don't look very even. Oh well, I still like it, especially the little bunnies with hats carrying candy canes.
Here's what is on the list for this week.
Finish quilting customer quilt
Prep pieces for Embroidety Garden Class
Attend Embroidery Garden Class Thursday
Keep trimming log cabin blocks
Finish binding one of my quilts
Make 1 scrap basket in red
I'm really looking forward to the Embroidery Garden class. It is a Sewing Stand that is made in a hoop then put over a horizontal plastic frame to hold it up. (I pulled the one pictured below off MollyMadeEmb on Etsy as she was selling kits for the class.) I notice the design is not available on EG's web site as it is only sold through a class. I've picked my fabrics, I just need to cut and mark them before the class tomorrow afternoon. Click this link to go to Embroidery Garden's web page to see other designs. If you want to take a class be sure you to join their Facebook page to find out about classes. There a several classes for some very cute projects and they fill up quickly!
I hope I can get most of these goals done this week. I was doing pretty well with trimming the blocks until I ran into several blocks that wouldn't trim to 10.5" at all. Back to the start as I had to retrim to 10.25" instead. Sigh. I will eventually finish trimming all these blocks.
Just a small note of frustration with Blogger... it seems every time I write a blog something about Blogger has changed. Today my space bar seemed to put 4 spaces in. I closed out of Blogger and Safari and did something else for a few minutes before I went back. Thank goodness that cleared the issue. I'm not that upset with change but, honestly, to keep making little changes is driving me crazy!
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
