What a week! I'm exhausted but I really wanted to write my normal Monday post. I did surprisingly well on my goals list so I'm sharing that first.
✅Quilt two tops — done and done!
✅Make blocks for BOM for guild — finished & turned in quite a few different blocks at the meeting.
✅Start fusing & trimming tee shirts for a quilt — 1 column of shirts done.
👎🏼Put border on the UFO — um, no, didn’t happen
Here are sneak peeks of the two tops I quilted this week.
And here are some blocks I made for the guild raffle quilt.
Mail two packages of blocks out
Finish fusing & trimming tee shirts for a quilt
Put border on APQ UFO for May
Trim and bind 2 quilts
Hum, I sure hope I get all of these things done. But a high priority is to bind 2 quilts.
Every Monday I head up to our community's club house to join a group of stitchers. There is a variety of stitching going on along with lots of talking and laughing. I work on whatever strikes my fancy or I want to get done. Many of the gals make hats using a circular frame. When I realized I have 4 boxes of miscellaneous yarn I decided I'd borrow a frame and try to make one. (Or more.) (I'm looking at you Alycia!)
Um, it really isn't a weird cactus. I had some leftover fuzzy yarn so I decided to try it. A friend made the pompom and another one trimmed it up. Some little girl is going to love this hat and her mom will probably hate that the fuzzy pieces fall out! The frame that was available was more for a baby or toddler so that's the size I'm making. I've already made two more that I'll eventually photograph and share. I've asked another friend to be on the lookout for a frame or frames while she does her thrift shopping. I'm happy to be making a dent in my yarn.
These will go to From the Heart Stitchers in Fredericksburg/King George. Here's a little about them. "Our mission is to serve our community by preserving and promoting fiber arts, creating a spirit of fellowship and love among our volunteers and board members, and producing handmade items which bring comfort, love and solace to others."
system. We were exhausted when we finally got home. Call time on Saturday was 3:15 as the concert was beginning at 5. This semester we were only doing one concert rather than an evening and a matinee the next day. We sang a wide variety of music from traditional Madrigal, pop music, spirituals, and a several songs from Disney. We even sang a song in Norwegian! (Think Frozen.) This was the 20th anniversary of the group so it was quite festive. Two other choral groups joined us. We finished at 7:30! I was exhausted and I expect the audience was too. The highlight of the night might have been the heavy down pour during the second half which made its own music on the roof and dripped on the altos. Exciting! Like true professionals they moved out of the way and didn't skip a note!
The group celebrated with a wonderful dinner and party at a local restaurant. (We were all starving by the time we got there!) There were several presentations and surprises before dancing and karaoke began. Hubby and I were so very surprised and pleased when we were given a remembrance for our 50th wedding anniversary that we will be celebrating in June. (Boy did that time go by fast!) I thought you might like to see us with our acrylic reminder.
We were totally exhausted when we got home. (Again!) Sunday was quieter but I did start and finish a small quilt.
I'm linking up with my favorite beginning of the week parties:
I'll come back tomorrow to link up what ever blogs are available.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
