Yes, I confess - I was bad and didn't post a Make-A-List last week! I didn't get nearly enough done on my list for the prior week - but in my defense, I was battling with allergies and the medication to stay upright. No excuse, but I didn't want to confess how badly I did on my list! So now I've had two weeks to work on it (and I still haven't done everything on the list) but I did do a lot last week! So here goes...
1. Make valance and curtain panels for guest room closet.
Still not done. I'm putting this on hold for a while, as it looks like my father-in-law won't be coming in the very near future...
2. Quilt a man's quilt for the ministry.
3. Piece and quilt a couple's quilt for the ministry.
4. Quilt two quilts for H2H.
Done, but I don't have pictures yet...
Plus I finished and quilted my own H2H quilt!
5. Make my own hand block!
Started, but not finished yet...
6. Write a Sweatshop blogpost this Wednesday!
7. Finish pulling together the guest room.
8. Contact more potential sponsors for H2H!
OK, so as I said, I didn't get everything done, but I did do some serious quilting. Three quilts for H2H, three more for the quilt ministry. Plus I pieced and quilted two quilts for the ministry. So not a bad week all in all.
And here's what's happening around here this week. My daughter and her family are off on vacation, so I've got some big projects in the works.
This past Saturday, my husband decided to brainstorm other options for revamping my sewing studio. Originally he was going to make some cabinets to go underneath my sewing table to increase my storage, but with boating season upon us (if it would EVER warm up and stop raining!) he was afraid he wouldn't have time to do it anytime soon. So in the process of brainstorming ready-made solutions, he decided that it would be smart to move all of my sewing paraphernalia into one room and put his drums where my sewing studio is right now. That means that my regular sewing and my longarm machine are now in the same room! Woohoo! But with that move comes a whole lot of work!!
And then on Tuesday, I've got a couple of strong teenagers coming to my house to help me work on my Father's Day present to my husband - a clean and organized garage! It's been a couple of years since we did any major work in it, and you can imagine what it's like now. So that's my major job for Tuesday.
And then I volunteered to provide some baked goods for a local non-profit's Pets In The Pasture event on Saturday....
So here's my to-do list for this week...
1. Pull together my sewing studio and Lilli's craft room.
2. Clean out and re-organize the garage.
3. Bake lots of goodies for Lantern Lane Farms.
4. Make a ministry quilt for a woman with cancer.
5. Write a Sweatshop blogpost.
6. Write my Blogger's Quilt Festival post.
7. Photograph and list new items for the Etsy shop.
Yes, I know - I've lost my mind!! I guess it just goes to prove, there's no rest for the wicked! I have spent all day working on my sewing studio, so it's getting close, but then I have to work on the craft room because a lot of stuff has headed in there and needs to find a home. Plus Lilli is as messy a crafter as I am! I will have pictures (hopefully Friday!) of the new studio, as it will definitely be my whoop whoop for the week!
And fortunately, I can write blogposts while I'm waiting for stuff to bake. Good thing! I can't wait to try out Karen's banana bread recipe (with the chocolate chips!) - if you didn't see it, be sure to go back to Sunday's H2H post!
So that's what I'm working on this week. Now the question is - - - what are you working on?
