How did your Tuesday go? Mine started early early this morning, when I dragged myself out of bed and tackled a stack of half-finished blocks. Got those done before I had to go pick up Miss Lilli, and put them up on the design wall.
(While taking Lilli to preschool, I found out that you can buy a magic flute at an enormous green store for $8.00. I'm not sure what a magic flute does, but Lilli has one!)
Got back to the house, sewed the blocks on the wall together and put a border on them. Pieced the scraps into a back, and got ready to load it on the quilting frame.
Intercepted the propane truck so they didn't fill up my tank in April with gas I won't use until next November - woohoo!! Grabbed a little lunch, read a little e-mail....
Back upstairs at noon. Thought, "Hey, I can get this loaded on the frame and quilted before I have to pick up the Bug at 1:30!" While pinning the last of the pieces on the frame, I got a call from a friend who was having trouble with some machine quilting. Made the mistake of laughing at her dilemma (in a nice way, of course!) Spent the next forty minutes trying to figure out why my sewing machine was giving me fits!!! Lesson learned - be kind to everyone - payback stinks!!
Anyway, long story short - I finished up the quilt after I picked up Lilli, who very kindly let me use the quilter while she watched Tangled on my computer! I got the binding sewn on, and here's my hand-work task for tonight....
So that's what I got done today. I'm also totally excited about Hands2Help - I've seen lots of comments and e-mails about people already sending and/or receiving their fabric packets - there's lots of excitement out there! I've also had some great feedback from sponsors, and there's going to be awesome prizes up for grabs at the end of the challenge!!
So what did you do today?
