Thursday Morning Wonderings

Outside my window... The sun is coming up.
I am listening to... Me-New purr and air conditioner run.
One of my favorite things... my quiet time in the mornings. 
One of my least favorite things... picking up after Ama. Last night a poor little possum made the mistake of coming into her yard.
I am missing... templatesThat might be a good thing since I can't start the KS BOM until I find them!
I am planning... on clearing 1 bin today and making 2 sided binding.
I am trying to remember... The sizes to cut the binding pieces. 1 3/4" for the pink and 1 1/2" for the Blue- I think!
I need... to finish the Blue Binding Star Wedding quilt and make my design wall. 
I am wondering... when the blob will finally disappear or will it be there for the rest of my life.
I am thinking... life is good! I have all I need and if I really want something I have the means to get it.
I am super thankful... for my friends. They keep me on the straight and narrow - NOT!
BBSWQ
I am sewing on... binding and BBSWQ. 
I am deciding... how to best clear office area so I can finish studio!
Should I... sew or sit and read blogs?
TOO Many Decisions Too Much to Do!

Design Wall

Goal 1: "Save the Ta-Ta's" donation quilt is quilted. Next is binding. I think I want to try a 2 sided binding - blue for the back with a pink flange on front.

Goal 2: BBSWQ - I will be working on this project until it is done. I am going to have to make the decision soon of either stopping or going buy more blue batiks.
BBSWQ
Goal 3: Design Wall -- The plan is to get to Lowe's soon to get the foam core boards. Actually it was suppose to happen already but didn't! 

GOAL 4: I will use this as my leader/Ender to finish the red rows. I think I still need more quarter square triangle.

Stash Report

I'm in the black so I need to replenish, right.
Fabric IN This Week:  03  yards (2 jelly rolls) i have a plan for them but lost the pattern.
Fabric IN for September: 7 yards 
Fabric IN YTD: 60 8/12 yards
Fabric OUT This Week:  yards 
Fabric OUT for September: 12 yards
Fabric OUT YTD: 66 9/12 yards
Reduction/Enhancement This Week: 3 yards
Reduction/Enhancement for September: 5  yards
Reduction/Enhancement YTD: 6 1/12 yards. 
   Life is Grand!  I got to spend time with Glenda, Frank, and the dogs on Thursday night and Friday morning. I brought back 2 bins full and a very heavy black bag of fabric that DH saved and forgot to tell me where he had saved them. Glenda said it was like Christmas and greeting old friends at the same time! I am just wondering where she is going to put more fabric - her shelves are stacked full! 
   Thursday evening was the most relaxing evening I have had for a very long time. All we did is have a wonderful meal of potato and leek soup with sausage and rolls. Yum! Then we all sat on the sofas and watched tv. Well, to be honest after a while the tv was watching us napping.
   The next morning Glenda fixed breakfast - an omlet with orange slices. The woman can cook! Then Glenda and I went into the sewing room and tried w/o success to piece a block. It is a shirt block which we plan on making together when I go. We made a great shirt back but the collar got us!  The directions were very unclear on the actual cutting sizes. We know that at least one piece is the wrong size. Glenda is going to try it again and write down the actual sizes. It will make a great memory quilt for a guy once we understand how to cut it properly.

I am back to piecing BBSWQ blocks. 5 more were done this week. This project will soon be a flimsy!
Lator Gators!

Stuff

   Today, DGS#9 has a parade to march in. While he is marching, I plan to go get two 4' by 8' foam core panels and a solid core 30" door. The door will become the top to my new sewing desk after DGS#9 paints it. The panels will be hung from a curtain rod and covered with batting to become a much needed design wall. Today, I want to get the cutting table moved to the studio. Hopefully that will happen this weekend or at least by next weekend.
   We are still not finished with the floor in the Studio but we are getting closer! Right now it is a matter of moving heavy stuff (bookcases and drawer units) out of the way so floor can be painted.  To do that I need to pull the bins of fabric etc out of the office/fabric room so that the heavy stuff has a place to go. Clean that room. Then the bins of fabric need to go back on shelves in the office/fabric room. It will get done but slowly. Oh, so slowly! It is overwhelming!

Thursday Morning Wonderings

UOutside my window... birds singing, cool breeze, and morning sun.
I am listening to... Me-New purr.
One of my favorite things... sitting silently with my early morning coffee reading blogs. 
One of my least favorite things... taking meds. But at least the horse pills seem to be working!
I am missing... templates. That might be a good thing since I can't start the KS BOM until I find them!
I am planning... on going to Glenda's tonight! It has been months since I saw her.
I am trying to remember... which bin my templates were placed.
I need... to finish the Blue Binding Star Wedding quilt. 
I am wondering... when the horse pills are done, will the blob reappear or disappear for good.
I am thinking... life is good! I have all I need and if I really want something I have the means to get it.
I am super thankful... for DGS#9 and all he does for us. He moved in to the "Kris" room so he could help me more.
BBSWQ
I am sewing on... several projects at one time still. BH Leader/Ender is my neutral and red for the month - 1909 Universal. Blue Binding Star Wedding quilt is on the BabyLock. There are 3 or 4 other projects that need finishing  - a wedding quilt, a wedding signature wall hanging, and 2 to be quilted table runners. 
I am deciding... where to set up cutting table and new sewing desk - new to me!
Should I... sew or sit and read blogs?
