There will be no excuses this week - because Miss Lilli goes back to preschool! Spring break is over - - - and that means the sweatshop starts back up!
I didn't do so badly last week, though - so let's take a look...
1. Clean up the sewing room!
OK, maybe this isn't the best place to start, since the word "clean" is mentioned -
but I did get it picked up a little bit at the beginning of the week
(although it still looks like a bomb hit it!)
|Just to keep it real.... ;-) !!|
2. Bind the three quilts that were quilted on Sunday.
Done! This was how I kept busy on my car ride to and from Paducah...
|An I-Spy quilt for a 7 year old boy with leukemia...|
(Pieced by Pam, quilted by Sarah)
|Another Double Irish Chain going to a woman just diagnosed with breast cancer...|
(Blocks pieced by Connie, top pieced by Tracy and Sarah, quilted by Sarah)
|And this beauty is going to a lady who has had ongoing complications from back surgery.|
(Pieced by Tracy, quilted by Sarah)
3. Work on the Brown Bag Challenge quilt due 4/1/11.
Done! I completed my blocks late Sunday afternoon, and I'll start
assembling the quilt today!
|All ready to be cut up!!|
4. Organize undesignated quilts in progress.
Done! Amazingly, I now have twelve adult quilts in various stages of completion, which is so wonderful! Now when I finish one, I just reach into the box and pull out the next one.
5. Finish organization project for keeping track of designated quilts in progress.
Done! I think I'm going to like this - we create a card each time there's a
request for a quilt, with the recipient's name on it, how they're
connected to us, and any information we have about them.
I attach a clip to the card if someone is working on the quilt.
This way, anyone can come in and see if there's something they can
work on, and know everything I know about the recipient.
|It still needs binding, but I needed|
to put it to work!!
I also quilted a small quilt for a friend and two more ministry quilts.
So that's how last week went. And here's what's on the schedule for this week....
1. Bind quilt for Relay for Life auction.
2. Bind purple ministry quilt.
3. Finish Brown Bag Challenge quilt.
4. Complete one or two more ministry quilts.
This should be enough to keep me busy for the week -
especially since I still have to do my taxes!!
I can't put those off much longer..........
What are you planning on doing this week? Our weather is supposed to be cold and rainy here, so I won't be playing outside - but I hope you are enjoying some beautiful spring weather wherever you are!!
