    Weekly goals & some other stuff

    Friday afternoon I went to a local quilt show. Very nice quilts. I was disappointed that they wouldn’t let you take photos but they did give you gloves so you could touch the quilts. One of the vendors had a great sale (patterns 50% off and fat qtrs for $1 if you bought 20). Of course I did my part to help the economy.

    Having walked to much at the quilt show I came home and read Pat Sloan’s book Take the Fear Out of Color. I need to insert a warning at this time.

    WARNING: Do not read Pat’s book if you do not want to get organized because this book is loaded with ways to organize your fabrics and fantastic patterns. 😉

    See what Pat’s book made me do and I’m so happy.

    From this to this

    Yes, that is only one bin. HEY they didn’t build Rome in a day. 😀

    Went to my Beginner Freemotion Quilting class on Saturday and I had sew much fun and learned enough that I am now comfortable with trying to quilt my first quilt. Unfortunately, I don’t have a top finished so I’m hoping to finish Because We Are Special Too today so I can get started quilting it.

    Speaking of Because We Are Special Too I only have 2 leaves to stitch and that will be finished. It was slow going and took a lot of time but it was because of the way I did it.

    I started with this and this is how it looks now.

    I’m not adding anything to my weekly goals as I need to finish up what is on the list before I leave for KY.

    This week goals

    • Cut fabric & batting for Sat class
    • Layer fabric & batting for class
    • Nikki bag
    • We Are Special – finish last 2 leaves, layer and quilt
    • frog – make more blocks for length
    • Farmer’s Market- May block
    • Strolling the Block – finish Feb, do Mar, Apr and May block

    Hope you have a quilt-y week!!

    Not a bad day

    Friday wasn’t a bad day at all. In fact, I’m just pretty pleased with all that I accomplished. I won’t bore you with the details of the household chores but you know they were there. What man decided that women should do the housework? lol We don’t like doing it any better then men would. In fact, housework interferes with the love of my life, quilting. I want a housekeeper and chef.

    Moving on. I got the Be Attitudes towel done for May. I think it turned out pretty cute. Got the pieces fused and cut for the June Be Attitudes tea towel. The last two times I have forgot to trace the letters for the words. What’s up with that?

    I have a few errands to run this morning then it will be fun fun fun for me.

    Happy quilting!

    Off schedule

    Yesterday I made Nikolas 3 pillowcases, then I made 2 pillowcases for me. I so need to stick to my goals so I will have everything done before I go to KY. Today I must have willpower and stick to my list. I was surprised to see that I had so many things I could check off.

    The frog quilt is seriously getting on my nerves so I have decided I will work on it on Wednesday at my quilt group. That way I can talk with the ladies as I applique those silly frogs and their eyes, mouths, and eyelashes on the girl frogs.

    Happy quilting!
