So what is a girl to do with all of this - Just Roll With It!
I am working on a UFO that is not only not on the list for this month, it wasn't even on this years list. But I found it looking for something else and can't pull myself away from it. Savannah Flair that I mentioned in my last post. A free BOM from Fat Cat Patterns in 2010.
I finished the last 3 masks.
Now I am working on the top stitching. I am doing a raw edge straight stitch around it, that's how I started it so many years ago - so I'm continuing with that. I had 2/3 of the stitching done on the animals. So I worked on that for a little bit on Thursday. Next time I'm in my room I will finish up the animals and hopefully start doing the top stitching on the masks. However I really should get started on quilting my charity quilt so I should wait on that a little.
I have two retreats coming up. One is in a couple of weeks, and one is in two weeks and the other is three and half weeks after that. Yay!
So I have been putting stuff together to work on at them. I have a kit I prepped for one of my retreats past that I didn't get to called Frog Work. It's all cut out and I even have a couple of the stitchery's traced.
Then I have 2 different strip quilts that I'm going to work on. One is called Stack and Flip. its a pattern that was featured by Missouri star.
Using this jelly roll.
Then I put together another strip quilt that will use this pattern and these fabrics.
This is a jelly roll that I got at the white elephant exchange from my last retreat.
Then the final thing that I have ready for the two retreats is a scrappy quilt that I'm making using these 4 patches I put together.
After the first retreat, I will know better if I need to get more stuff ready or not. If I am productive I will get lots done and need to prep more stuff. But if not I will be all ready to go. I have 2 more quilts I would like to start (Like I don't have enough going on) so I may set them up and have them ready to go.
As for my hand stitching - I did the hand stitching of the binding on a friends quilt for her. And I got these two little things done on Friday - they came from a pin cushion kit I got from Simply Put Plus, however I am going to make them into little wall hangings. One is going to be a gift to my friends Sister.
We were out and about all day yesterday. My honey needed to get out of the house. But I think today between the heat and the fact we did get out yesterday I will have some time in my sewing room. So I'm going to sign off for now and get in there while I can.
I'll let you know what I get done.
