Can you believe it's the last week of 2014? This year has just flown by - I found my resolutions list from last January, and unfortunately not much on it got done, because we went into adoption mode in March and that took over the time allotted to most of my grand plans. But I wouldn't change a thing! It's been wild ride and I can't wait to see what 2015 has in store.
But first, let's see how last week's list went...
1. Finish the weighted blanket I've started for Emmy.
Done! I gave it to my daughter for Christmas, though - in hopes that it would give HER a good night's sleep! She thought that was funny….
2. Rewrite the weighted blanket tutorial to include new, clearer pictures and a few additional tweaks.
I'm working on this - hope to have it done very soon!
3. Get the house ready for a visit from my sister and her daughters after Christmas!
Done! It was still pretty clean, so this was an easy one.
4. Eat too much, open lots of presents, take lots of pictures, and have fun!
Definitely done! We had such a ball on Christmas and in the days following…
|Emmy with her quilt...|
|Lilli with hers...|
|The nieces showed up for a visit...|
|My sister, the ironing minion…|
hooray, I have minions!
|And sweet sisters loving on each other |
when they came over to play today!
5. And, as usual, keep up with any ministry needs that may arise.
Fortunately, this was a quiet week for the quilt ministry. We only gave away one quilt…
This quilt went to a woman with breast cancer.
And I did manage to do one small thing in the sewing room this week…
A new ironing board cover! Hopefully this one will last longer than the muslin ones I've been using - it's an IKEA canvas print.
I also did some major cleaning in the sewing room - but I've barely begun! I'm hoping to get a lot more done this week, and post some pictures.
OK - so now let's see what's on the agenda for this week…
1. Work on the re-organization of the sewing room.
2. Start planning the quilt-along for Hands2Help 2015.
3. Press and cut scraps for the quilt-along samples.
4. Quilt at least two and hopefully five quilts for the quilt ministry.
5. Order interfacing for a commission t-shirt quilt.
6. Keep up with all quilt ministry needs that arise.
That's plenty for this week - I'm also planning to go see several movies with my wonderful husband and maybe a special date night as we celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary!
So now the question is - - - what are YOU working on this week?
