Wow - it's tougher coming back to the real world than I thought it would be! We spent a wonderful ten days in Hawaii celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary - the weather was fabulous just for us! There is nothing better in mid-winter than a long stretch of sun-filled, beautifully warm days. I do feel rejuvenated - but the jet lag is still wreaking havoc with my sleep schedule. Let's hope I can stay awake long enough to get this posted!!
Ok, now let's see what is on tap for this week...
1. Deep cleaning in the studio.
2. Bind a ministry quilt.
3. Quilt at least one ministry quilt.
4. Work on designs for the Rockin' Rectangles quilt-along (coming soon!)
5. Work on prototypes for the quilt-along.
6. Choose new goals for Scrap Attack 2019.
7. Write a special blog post for a friend.
8. Put away Christmas!
9. Keep up with any quilt ministry needs that come up.
I'm sure there are other things that will come up, and the good Lord knows I could deep clean my studio for a month and still have more to do... but at least I'm making a start!
For instance, I took the old plastic shelving unit out of this closet and replaced it with a wire shelving unit that I had stashed in the attic. Being able to see everything in the closet without the solid shelves blocking the view makes it all look so much nicer!
And this abomination is my strings hamper. I've started pulling the strings out, pressing them and folding them into a storage tub. Hopefully I'll be able to use them more easily after that! I've been working on it off and on for a couple of days now (ok, more off than on, but still!) and haven't made much of a dent in the hamper. They are really packed in there!
And of course, it's time to start looking forward to QuiltCon 2019, which is going to be in Nashville, TN, my "backyard", so to speak! I've been trying to come up with a pin to swap with the other quilters - that was a fun part of QuiltCon 2017, and I want to be able to participate this time around! Here's what I'm looking at right now...
What do you think? And will you be at QuiltCon too? If so, I'd love to meet up with you! Let me know in the comments (leave your email address if I don't already communicate with you that way!) and I'll get in touch to see what we can work out!
And now, my question is - - - what are YOU working on this week?
