Do you remember what happened on this date in 1963? I was in junior high school that day and I remember it pretty vividly. Our president was assassinated. It's hard to realize that was almost 60 years ago.
Not so vivid in my memory is what I should have been working on this past week. Although, surprisingly I did get to check off most of the items. Here's last week's goals.
✅Quilt Jenny's quilt
✅Border friendship stars
✅Sew ombré blocks together — hum stated wrong, I’m still making the blocks and I did get 2 done
Clear off the right side of design wall — started but no where near finished
Figure out turquoise blocks — this one is on the far back burner
✅Keep making string blocks — Can you say leader ender?
Here's the friendship stars quilt. The stars were made each month as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.Because this is hanging over the ironing station you can't see the top row of light stars. This quilt makes me smile. In the back of my head I'm trying to decide what I will do for the 2022 RSC. The only thing I'm thinking so far is I want a larger block -- say 9" finished so I can use my Accuquilt Go Cube to cut the blocks. Time will tell.
Now this week's goals.
Make doll dress
Trim and bind Dino quilt
Quilt small quilt of mine
Keep making string blocks
Embroider last t shirt for the grands*
Finish clearing off right side of design wall
*I embroider Christmas motifs on T shirts most years (along with Halloween and sometimes Valentine's Day.) Notice it says last shirt. Yep, I've already finished 3 of the 4 shirts. See Theo's and Ellie's below.This is Merry Rexmas from Urban Threads. I think Theo is going to like that dinosaur. Are you an embroiderer? Do you mix thread types in your stitch-outs? I've got several different brands of thread and a mix of poly and rayon threads. I generally go with the closest color.
Hum, this didn't get done until early evening so this picture is not as bright as I wish it was. This one is Feline Festive -- Christmas Present also from Urban Threads. I'll try to remember to share the last two later.
I've been remiss in announcing my Stash Busting (or Enhancing) for October. Weird that I haven't as I actually figured them in early November. Nothing to shout about because I brought in more fabric than I used. But the out for the year number is pretty darn good still.
Fabric In Month
Fabric In Year
Fabric Out Year
Total In or Out Year
I'm calling it done for this post. I'm linking up with my normal parties. (Have you noticed I haven't gone back to link up To Do Tuesday for weeks??? I'll keep posting in hopes that one of these days I actually do it.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
