Cindy’s Creations

My new machine didn’t get here Friday until after 3 pm, I was pacing the floor. The UPS man offered to put it in the room I wanted it in. I thought that was very nice considering they are so busy they usually kinda throw the box at you and run. I’ve sewn on it some, not nearly as much as I would like but I’ll do that today.

I want to finish quilting Waiting on St. Nick today. I would have finished it Thursday but I ran out of the thread I was using in the bobbin. Worked on my Farmer’s Market BOM yesterday, I still have a tiny bit to do before I can show it.
Mon – put binding on 2 baby quilts, Dolly Madison Star
Tues – cut fabric for My Friend, Mary Lou, finish Farmer’s Market BOM, finish Waiting on St. Nick
Wed – Artful Hands (work on My Friend, Mary Lou)
Thurs – continue working on My Friend, Mary Lou
Fri – tea towels using the Be Attitude book

I’ve got my fingers crossed that I will finish all of my goals as I have a full week of real life things to do. Hope everyone has a great week!

Artfull Hands gathering

WOOHOO!! What a fun day! Everybody worked on their own thing but helped each other when needed. They helped me cut my fabric for my Dolly Madison Star and I appli-quilted the Waiting on the St. Nick quilt. The lady sitting at the table in front of me is making a red, black and white Diva quilt. Too cute!Lunch was wonderful. Fruit trays, quesdias (sp), guacomole, chips, salsa and bread pudding. I’m sure I gained 10 lbs.

While I was at the quilt shop I purchased things to keep me busy for a few days, I mean weeks. 😉
Tea towels to applique’ on. The towels are on the backing I purchased for the Sweet Baby Jane quilt
Be Attitude book, I’m going to use these patterns for applique’ on the tea towels. I may be adding this quilt to the list of quilts to make.
I will use these purple and green fat qtrs for eggplant and zucchini for the March Farmer’s Market. Yellow will be the background.
Lacy has 2 friends having a baby this month and one is tomorrow. So I purchased these panels, the bottom part is the backing. Cute, fast and cheating. 😛

Happy quilting!
