Monday came in a big hurry this week - seems like I haven't gotten much done, and way too much to do - because I counted up and it's only eleven weeks until Christmas!! Ack!! How did that happen? You'd think after as many years as I've been here, it wouldn't sneak up on me like that..... So it's time to make that list, and check it twice, and get going on Christmas! Are you ahead of the game, or behind like me?
Let's see how I did with last week's list...
1. Quilt a man's quilt for the ministry.
Done! I love this big D9P design, pieced by Deb...
2. Quilt a woman's quilt for the ministry.
Done! Deb pieced this one, too...
|See my cute little photography assistant?|
3. Finish piecing and quilt the low volume dump-n-sew quilt top.
Done! This one was fun to make, and fun to quilt...

4. Quilt three baby tops for the ministry.
I didn't get to this one yet...
And I have a prayer request - the lady who pieced these three baby tops was life-flighted to a local hospital tonight after a seizure. They think she might have bleeding on the brain. She's brand-new to our group, but has already pieced five baby tops for the ministry, along with making and quilting her own full size quilt. Say a quick prayer for her, please!
Here's what I need to work on this week...
1. Quilt those three baby tops.
2. Make a dress for my niece's wedding at the end of the month.
3. Quilt a man's quilt for the ministry.
4. Choose and quilt a top for a 15-year old boy with leukemia.
5. Keep working on the junk room, to turn it into a functional room again!!
I'm going to keep it short this week - and hopefully exceed my goals! I've got lots of other things to work on, including quilting the quilts I've got in the works for Lilli and Emmy for Christmas.
I'm also looking for great easy gift ideas for things that Lilli can make herself - so I can help her make presents for family members for Christmas. If you've got any good ideas, I'd love to hear them!
Oh, and a reminder - this is the last week to link up your quilts for 100 Quilts For Kids 2012! The linky party closes on October 15th. Remember, you can link up any quilts you've made and donated for children, including any you made for the Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge. So hop on over here and link up your quilts!!
So now, I want to know - what are you working on this week???
