Wow, it has been a week! I was so busy getting caught up on stuff, and trying to get things done before my surgery, that I didn't have time to do any blog posts during the day - and then I kept falling asleep in the evenings when I could have been writing blogposts and catching up on everyone's blog! So today's post will be sort of a combination of all my posts for the week...
First of all, here's the recap on last week's to-do list...
1. Make a back for and quilt the commission quilt.
Done! Here's just a teaser (since it's a gift - I'll show more after Christmas....)
2. Work on hand-quilting Lilli's quilt.
Done! The hand quilting is finished - now I just have to quilt the borders and bind it and it'll be finished!
3. Quilt one quilt for the ministry.
Done! This one went to an older gentleman with cancer...
4. Decorate the house for Christmas!
Done! The kids (daughter, son-in-law, and Lilli) came over last Friday for "Decorate Nana's House For Christmas Day"! Here's just a small sample of what we worked on...
So that's what I got done on last week's list. This week, my list was very long, because it's filled with stuff I need to get done before my surgery on the 13th.
1. Finish a quilt for the Monday night prayer service.
2. Finish a quilt for a woman with cancer.
3. Finish Lilli's quilt.
4. Bind and deliver the commission quilt.
5. Cut out my friend's upholstery pieces.
6. Quilt my friend's quilt top.
7. Make a quilt for a gift.
8. Christmas shop.
9. Make a dress for Lilli.
10. Get the house ready for the quilt ministry's
I don't know if I'll get all this done this week, but it's kind of my running list for the next two weeks. So far, though, I finished this quilt for the ministry (one of Sharon's pretty scrappy tops)...
.... and this one, also for the ministry (another of Sharon's tops!)....
As you can see, my little assistant is helping me "light up" the quilt - the last one didn't come out of the dryer until after the sun had set, so I had to take these pics in the house, where the lighting isn't so good. Lilli brought her princess flashlight into play to help me out! She was in the mood to have her picture taken today, though, and I caught this cute one...
So that's what I've been working on all week, and why I've been AWOL - I sure have missed all those emails that come from comments received and comments I've made - so I hope I won't be so busy that I can't blog soon!
And now it's your turn!
