I love spring - but I hate one thing about it - the wild weather we have here in Middle Tennessee usually means that our internet service is in and out - which is what has been happening all weekend and all day today! If you've left a comment on a blogpost and I haven't responded, it's not because I don't care - it's because my internet is on the blink!
It's also delayed my list-making for Monday - but now's the time! Here's how I did on last week's list....
1. Make a secret gift for someone who shall remain nameless...(because she may be reading my blog!)
Done! Here's my daughter's birthday present, which was designed by my granddaughter using Legos! It finished out at about 32" square...
Here's a picture of the label I made using Picnik.com. I took a picture of the lego creation and added the wording and border...
2. Quilt a man's quilt with straight line quilting before I move my Juki back to the quilting frame.
Done! This quilt was delivered last week...
3. Put the red and white ministry quilt on the frame and quilt it!
Done! I've got to hand stitch the binding down as soon as I get this posted...
4. Pull fabrics for two children's quilts for the ministry.
Done! The first pile is for an I-Spy quilt for a 7-year old boy, and the other is for a quilt for a 10-year old girl.
This week I also pieced together a stack of already-made blocks into a double irish chain top (sorry, no picture yet!), and I quilted this lovely quilt that my friend Tracy made for our youth minister, who is leaving to go work at another church.
The back is the neatest part, though - all the kids in the youth group signed it on Wednesday night, leaving wonderful messages telling Chase how much he meant to them over the years. And take a look at her pieced border! Isn't that gorgeous?
I think Chase liked it... ;-)
So that's what I did last week. Whew!!
Here's my new list...
1. Finish the red and white ministry quilt.
2. Cut kits for the two children's quilts.
3. Assemble the childrens' quilts, or pass them on to someone else to assemble.
4. Make bee blocks and get them in the mail.
5. Piece a back for the double irish chain quilt and get it quilted.
OK - I think that's enough to keep me busy for a while!
So - - - what are you working on this week??
PS - there's still time to enter the Whoop Whoop Friday giveaway, even if you can't link up any more this week. Be sure to check it out here - and be ready to link something up this coming Friday!!
