Make-A-List Monday - Oh, I've been busy!!

Hi, all!

Oh, I've missed you all so much, my bloggy friends!!! I've been nose-to-the-grindstone for the past week, trying to get a ton of quilting done before my surgery next week.  By the time I sit down in the evenings, if there's been any time at all to blog, I've fallen asleep before I get a chance!!  But I'll have plenty of time to catch up on everyone's blogs next week, I'm sure.  

So let's take a look at last week's list and see how it went..

1.  Quilt the rest of the summer camp quilts.
Done!  Take a look at this pretty stack of ten quilts...

These have all been dropped off at church for others to bind...

2.  Bind a quilt (the batik pictured above) for the ministry.
Done and delivered!

3.  Quilt and bind two more quilts for ministry needs.
Done!  Here's one of them...

Then there's this one, which I quilted and Pam did the binding on...

And a third is finished, but I didn't remember to take a picture until after the sun had set!  Oops!

4.  Do something on that upholstery project!
I really need the Cone of Shame.....  still no progress on this!  But in my defense, I did piece a quilt top for a sweet little girl who had to have major surgery this week - it's on the frame for quilting tonight.

And now, for this week....

1.  Quilt the child's quilt on the frame for the quilt ministry.

2.  Quilt a man's quilt for the quilt ministry.

3.  Quilt a woman's quilt for the quilt ministry.

4.  Quilt as many more quilts this week as possible 
to get ahead for September!

How's that for an open-ended list with no end in sight?  It will be interesting to see just how many I can get done this week! I guess it depends a lot on how much rain we get from Hurricane Isaac - whether it tracks more towards Arkansas or Tennessee.  Only time will tell!

And speaking of Hurricane Isaac, keep the folks in the New Orleans area in your prayers - this could be a devastating storm for them, as I was reminded by Jamie of L'Fair Quilts.  Recovery from Hurricane Katrina is still ongoing.....


And on a personal note, I've got a huge whoop whoop a few days early!  I know I don't usually talk about this on my blog but I just want to shout this from the rooftops - I had a CT scan yesterday and it came back completely clear!!  Woohoo!!!  (Thanks for letting me let that out!!)

So now the question is - - - what are you working on this week?




  1. Oh I am so happy for you! That is great news! Whoop whoop for sure!!!!

  2. You always get so much accomplished! I had surgery a few weeks ago and was banned from sewing (my surgeon told me I could in a few weeks) - I was planning on getting so much done while I was off...now I suppose I should just go back to work. (I did make a doll quilt today...shhh!)

  3. Sarah! This is awesome news! I know you and your family and friends must be so happy! Hope your next surgery goes well and that you're able to get as much accomplished as humanly possible beforehand.

  4. Definitely worth a 'hollar from the hills'!! Don't over do or stress before your surgery - and then dear lady, expect to be treated like a queen. Wish I was closer to help out.

  5. Whoop! Whoop!!!!! That's great news Sarah! Will be praying for your surgery to go perfectly and your recovery problem free :*)

  6. Wonderful news about your CT scan.
    I'll pray for you for wisdom for your medical team and rapid healing from the next surgery.

  7. Wow you certainly have been busy! Great news on the CT scan. Thoughts and prayers sent you way for your surgery.

  8. The results of your scan should have been first!!! That is fantastic news, Sarah. All the best for your surgery. Will be thinking of you {{hugs}}

  9. Hooray for clear scans! They can be such a worry until you get the results. Whoop whoop indeed!

    I love the pretty green quilt, btw :)

  10. Over the moon happy for you! Great news!

  11. What wonderful news! Made my day. Hope next weeks surgery goes well.
    You have been a very busy lady! So many lovelies.
    I heard Hurricane Isaac pushed gulf waters went over the levies in parts of New Orleans again. Parish area flooded. So sad.

  12. Glad to hear that the scan came back clear, that's wonderful news. Sounds like the hurricane is causing a lot of destruction in NOLA again!

  13. Wonderful news on the CT scan!!!! Praying that your surgery goes wonderfully, too.

  14. Sarah, that's great news! I'm so happy for you and your family!!!

  15. Congratulations on your clean scan! That is awesome! My husband gets a scan every 4 months at MD Anderson and a clean scan is indeed a GREAT blessing.

  16. The absolute best kind of whoop whoop there is. Shout it from the rooftops, girl! :)

  17. Great projects, and clear CT scans are alwasy good. Funny you mention Katrina, and Isaac, as I just posted about that. My famil lived through Katrina, but moved (thanks goodness) a few years later. So sad about H. Isaac...

  18. I'm so excited and glad that your CT came back clear. That is definitely something to praise and scream from the roof tops.

  19. Check out this amazing school fundraiser www.scholarpon.com you cant buy daily deals and give back to schools.
