Make-A-List Monday - Making Progress!

Hi, all!

It's been a beautiful week here in Middle Tennessee - but we're getting lots of rain today!  That makes for great sewing weather, though - yipee!!

Here's how I did on last week's list...

1.  Keep working on the pattern book for the quilt ministry.
The work in progress is still a work in progress...

2.  Start sewing on the quilts for Lilli and Emmy.
Done!  I finished Emmy's top...

...and I made the snowball blocks for Lilli's quilt top.

3.  Make two quilt backs for the quilt ministry.
I made one back, but the other one is still pending.

4.  Put borders on a small quilt top for the ministry.
Didn't get to this one!

5.  Teach a couple of friends how to use Jolene!
One of my friends came over, and she learned how to use Jolene, quilting a top for the quilt ministry.

6.  Work on Emmy's cross-stitched Christmas stocking.
Done - or at least coming long!  Here's how it looked last Monday...

...and here's how it looks today!

Slow but steady wins the race, right?

Want to see part of why I didn't get everything on the list done?  Saturday we met for our monthly sewing meeting, and set out all the quilts that are going to New Orleans for a picture...

Many of these quilts came to us as part of Hands2Help!
...and then Saturday afternoon, we took our daughter and granddaughters to the zoo!!

So Saturday was a busy day all around!

And here's what's on the list for this week...

1.  Make a backing for a quilt for the ministry.

2.  Put borders on a ministry quilt and make a backing.

3.  Finish Lilli's quilt top.

4.  Work on Emmy's stocking.

5.  Work on the ministry pattern book.

6.  Dump out my scraps and make some dump blocks!

OK - that's enough for this week!  I'm hoping to get released from some of my restrictions so I can start quilting again next week - we'll see how it goes!  Keep your fingers crossed...

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