This week went by very quickly with lots of activities happening.
Monday, DH and I traveled to Marksville and ate lunch.
Tuesday, I traveled to BR and sewed with Glenda, Ann, and friends.
Wednesday, we took care of insurance concerns and I visited with my little sister.
Thursday, we went exercise and then I dropped off DH at casino while I went to the QGA guild meeting.
Friday, we drove to Maurepas to pick up my hand quilting frame so I can work on Halloween Graduation for DGD#2. It will now be a graduation/birthday gift so goal is to have all parts done by October 5th.
|Coming along nicely!|
Today we were going to screen the front section, but my yellow hammer disappeared. I think someone didn't want to work today since they know I don't use any hammer but that one. LOL
So instead, I will bind. DD#1 sent me home with 3 quilts to bind: 1) a wall hanging she made for her children's school; 2) a quilt she quilted for Dottie; 3) a scallop edged quilt - I even have to make the bias binding for that one which I have never done before. Stepping out of my box and grabbing hands-on helpers.
My prediction is that there will very little stash reduction next week too. Why very little sewing? Tuesday DGD#2, DH, and I are going to New Orleans and will be staying until Thursday evening. DGD#2 wants to go and act like a tourist visiting all the sites and taking pictures. Sounds hot to me (fun will be watching DGD#2 having a great time!), but what DGD#2 wants DGD#2 gets! I plan to pack lots of water and gator aid or something like that and lots of sun screen.
As for enhancement next week, well, fabric is just falling into my stash even without me going to the LQS or buying online. So if you want to send any true red and white scraps my way, I will add them to the collection for DGD#1's college graduation quilt. Actually I haven't met a color or fabric yet that was turned away. LOL Thursday there will be a trip to Mes Ami as a reward for sweating! Who knows what delights will come home with me!
Well back to binding!
Lator Gators. Keep making Lemonade out of life's Lemons!
