Make-a-List Monday - Nope, Still AWOL!


Hi, all!

Well, it's official - my sew-jo is still AWOL!  But it's Monday, and that means it's time to look back at last week and take stock, and then look at the week ahead and make plans.  So let's get started with a look at last week's list...

1.  Have a friend over for a long arm "teaching day".
Done, and we had a lot of fun!  And in the process, we quilted this large quilt and put the binding on the smaller one.  And I actually put the binding on the larger one by the end of the week....

2.  Cut out another annual quilt.
Done!  No pictures, but I cut out all the pieces for Nathanael's annual quilt, which will be another version of my Supernova pattern.

3.  Start working on the second memory quilt.
I finished the second memory quilt top.... 

and I started on the third memory quilt top, too!  Made a big booboo when I started putting on the borders, though, and had to do some major ripping.  It kind of put me off wanting to sew....

4.  Begin planning repairs on a vintage top.
Didn't get to this one...

5.  Quilt a top for a patient friend.
...or to this one.

My border mess-up really threw a monkey wrench in the works - I was going pretty well before that!  But I'll get back on the horse tomorrow and finish that third top.  After all, tomorrow is another day!

So here's what I'm hoping to accomplish this week...

1.  Finish the borders on the third memory quilt.

2.  Make the backs for those three quilts.

3.  Make the back for Lilli's annual quilt.

4.  Start working on the half-square triangles for Nathanael's annual quilt.

5.  Have a baking day/Spanish lesson day with Lilli.

I'm looking forward to that last one - since Lilli is home-schooling, we get to go at her lessons in some unusual ways.  She wants to make chocolate chip cookies (and we NEED more chocolate chip cookies!) so I've looked up all the Spanish words for the ingredients and the actions we'll be doing.  It will be interesting to see if we can figure it all out in Spanish!

So now I really need to know - - - what are YOU working on this week?




  1. making chocolate chip cookies...the american version....LOL

  2. Sigh--we all hit slumps like this. Time with Lilli will do you wonders! Ten un día divertido

  3. For someone who has lost their co-op you sure accomplish a lot. I wish I could get my mo-jo back!

  4. Muy bueno! Disfruta tu dia con Lilli.
    I do a Spanish lesson every day and twice a week a friend and I do a Zoom lesson together.

  5. I love this Spanish lesson idea. You can type "english to spanish translation" and put the whole thing in and get a translation. It may not be 100% but pretty good. I am slow to not moving too with my sewing. Getting what I committed to done, but not much else. I am bored with lost sew-jo.
