Returned Monday night after the babysitting trip. Hadn’t been at the sewing machine for the week, but was looking for a reprieve from the heat & humidity, so I went to the basement yesterday and actually finished something- Caitlin’s graduation quilt.
The quilt fit onto Caitlin’s full size bed, so bit bigger than I thought, but I like the size.
Not sure what I’m going to work on now…
Wasn’t able to post a video because Caitlin & I went to Saratoga Performing Arts Center to see the Piano Guys last night. I had never seen any of their videos…boy were they amazing! Now I’m going to binge their videos on Youtube.
I thought I would have enough time to do a video, but time just slipped away. I’m heading to Maryland tomorrow with my daughter to rendezvous with my sister & mother in law, niece and nephew for a couple of days in Oceanside. My niece is dancing in one of those big dance competitions and sister in law got a condo near the beach.
Last week we had a guest speaker at our guild meeting and then a Thursday workshop learning how to use the Westalee/Sew Steady rulers to quilt. My brain was fried after a full day of that. I think I’m going to practice using these rulers on my PPV blocks from last year and continue with the quilt as you go. I also found some of my Creative Memories cutting templates…I wonder if I can figure out a way to use them with the special foot. It would give me more options.
Had a purge of items for a yard sale on Friday. My daughter made it seem like “Sophie’s Choice”. “Mom, you have two of these, decide which one stays, and which one goes.” Now I need her ruthlessness to go through my sewing room.
I think I’ll take some hexies with me. It’s not my favorite thing to do, but it will give me something to do.
Have a happy crafting week.
