First of all, let me tell you that I am still reeling from the devastation that I've seen on CNN of the Oklahoma City tornado site. A million thoughts are running through my mind about how I can best help out in this situation - I've seen one group making memorial quilts for the teachers at the schools, but I have a feeling that there will be many families left homeless and belonging-less. Those numbers will probably be out in the next day or so, as the search for survivors reaches a conclusion. If anyone else is interested in helping organize some type of quilt drive for those families, or knows of one already established, please let me know! You can leave a comment below or email me directly at salliesue (at) clearwire (dot) net.
Now let's see how I did on last week's list...
1. Pull together my sewing studio and Lilli's craft room.
Done! Well, as well as it's going to be for now - I've got lots of sewing to do!!
2. Clean out and re-organize the garage.
Done!! It looks so good!!
3. Bake lots of goodies for Lantern Lane Farms.
Done! 3 dozen muffins, a Derby pie, a loaf of banana/chocolate chip bread, a loaf of peasant bread, and a three-layer deep chocolate cake with whipped cream/cream cheese icing!
4. Make a ministry quilt for a woman with cancer.
I didn't get to this one, but I did find one finished in the quilt room for this woman.
5. Write a Sweatshop blogpost.
Done! If you missed it, you can read it here.
6. Write my Blogger's Quilt Festival post.
Also done! If you missed it, you can read it here.
7. Photograph and list new items for the Etsy shop.
Didn't get to this one...
So pretty much, a week with no sewing, at least until Saturday afternoon, when I quilted three quilts for the ministry, and put binding on one of them on Sunday so it could go to its recipient today.
We had a whole bunch of quilt requests come in toward the end of the week. So here's what I need to do this week!
1. Quilt the Drunkard's Path on the frame for the ministry.
2. Bind two girls quilts for the ministry.
3. Bind a woman's quilt for ministry.
4. Quilt two H2H quilts.
5. Complete three tops for Quilts Beyond Borders.
6. Quilt the three QBB quilts.
7. Work out a response for the Oklahoma City tornado victims.
8. Photograph and list new items for the Etsy shop.
So that's what I'll be working on this week. It's certainly enough to keep me out of trouble!!!
And just for fun, take a look at this video - my cute littlest granddaughter - she's growing up so fast!! Guaranteed to make you smile....
And now the question is - - - what are you working on this week?
