I have not been able to sew all week, and I don't expect to be able to do so for a couple of more weeks. The person at work who is sick is having surgery on Tuesday, and I've been working hard to get things pushed through. It's amazing how much I got done. I did manage to work a bit on bindings - five done this year and am working on the sixth. Two more big quilts to go. These will all be 2010 finishes. I will try to get some applique prepped so I can have that ready to go when I need to de-stress. It works. It really does.
Penny is getting better about not trying to play with my thread as I'm stitching bindings down. She's such a cute, joyful puppy, but no where I sat could keep her from wanting to play while I was stitching. I was beginning to think I was going to have to hand stitch standing up!
Last week I forgot to report the Fig Tree Club tablerunner kit that landed. That's 3.625 yards. I can't wait to make this one.
This week a small package arrived from Minick & Simpson for their Stars & Bars kit. I already had the pattern and had purchased some star fabric from the Jo Morton line, but I found another pattern on which to use those darker stars. What's a girl to do but buy more fabric?! Anyway, that kit is 7.75 yards. I'm such an M&S groupie! :)
I will try to get the Pennsylvania Dutch block made today and get that posted for the drawing info for those participating in the Pennsylvania Dutch club.
The give-away I planned to do this week will be after that. I need another bust to get me out of the red!
