Make-A-List Monday #34! Happy Valentine's Day!!

Hi, all!

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hope you are having a wonderful day - we've had beautiful weather here this weekend (it was 67 degrees here yesterday!)  Such a change after the cold and snowy weather we've had this year - it really puts me in the mood for spring!  And spring makes me want to get creative!

I got a good bit done last week ......

1.  Work on blocks for a commissioned quilt. (Paying work - I love it!)
I made about 25 of these blocks (all I had the necessary ingredients for) so it's coming along nicely!

2.  Work on blocks for a red and white ministry quilt.
Done - the flimsy is completely finished and ready for quilting!

3.  Pull fabrics for our Saturday sewing get together - we're making mug rugs for our church group to take on a mission trip to Peru as gifts for the school teachers 
in the town they will be working in.
Done - we had a great time, and made a big pile of mug rugs!!

4.  Make a pillow by this pattern for Lilli for Valentine's Day!
Done!  I not only made this one for Lilli...

I made these two for Bill on Sunday!!

So what's on the to-do list for this week?

1.  Finish piecing the commission quilt.

2.  Quilt the commission quilt.

3.  Quilt the red and white ministry quilt.

4.  Quilt another ministry quilt.

5.  Finish hand stitching the binding on some of Saturday's mug rugs.

Whew!  I think that's enough for one week!
