Vacation is over - - - and it was a lot of fun!! I'm rested, tanned for the first time in over a year, and had a wonderful time with my wonderful hubby!! We ate too much, slept late, went to movies, spent hours on the beach - a fabulous time!!
So even though my list was short last week, let's see how I did....
1. Work on my vacation quilt.
Done! Well, sort of...
... because my hubby didn't like the fabric I was going to use for the outer border, so I ordered a Kate Spain Serenade print that we both liked better - it should be here tomorrow or Wednesday, so I can finish this off. But isn't it pretty with the sun shining through it?
2. Enjoy some sun, beach, breeze, good food, and my DH!
So last week was a success, even though it was a short list - I had a lot of fun working on something just for me! Can't do that at home - too many ministry quilts needing work most of the time! So yes, sewing is allowed on vacation when it's something fun!!
And now let's see what's on tap for this week...
1. Make a back for a woman's quilt needed for the ministry.
2. Add borders and make a back for a second woman's quilt needed for the ministry.
3. Quilt and bind both of those quilts.
4. Bind two children's quilts for Phoenix Quilts.
5. Work on an upholstery project for a friend.
Not too long a list, and I may get more done than this, but it's a start and do-able!!
And I wanted to share a video with you, but I'm having trouble getting it from my daughter due to file size. Hopefully I'll get it soon, but for now the picture above will have to do. What you are seeing is Emmalyn hearing for the first time! She was born with very little hearing in her left ear, none in her right ear - but last Friday she got her hearing aids and heard her mom and dad's voices for the first time! Doesn't she look happy? (That's my beautiful daughter holding her, by the way! She looks pretty happy too!) Lilli is very excited about the hearing aids - she says they are pink because Emmy is a girl!)
And speaking of Lilli, look at how she's growing up...
Isn't she beautiful?
So now the question is..... what are you working on this week?
