In my hopes to actually get a 'finish' this month..... I worked last weekend to make a batting from leftover scraps using the zigzag stitch on the machine. I am trying to get a finish on Crayon Box - a free pattern from Quiltville.com
Thank goodness it is big enough! This is a little one at 44x58.
I have the pieces set to piece the backing - I figured with a bright top I needed a nice bright background - so yellow with a strip of flowers down the middle. Could not make it easy on myself...but down the middle will look nicer than just on one side.
This needs a backing pieced, then everything pressed, pinned and quilted. A binding made and attached... in the next 3 days to get a September finish. Thank I can do it? Time will tell.....
Gymnastics tonight with Emily - so early dinner for us. Tomorrow is busy - orthodontist appt for Emily at 3:30, Aidan has his first soccer game at 5:30 and then of course... it is open house night at school from 6-7. One parent will take Emily to her open house and the other will finish the soccer game and try to get him there for the last 15 minutes. Friday... I need to call and see if we have a guitar lesson or not. Saturday morning is bowling - Greg took them last week and got a splitting headache from the noise!
I finally got sleep last night after 2 nights up with a boy who was all stuffed up and couldn't breathe. Yes, we tried everything - humidifier in room, steamy shower and personal humidifier, vicks, netti pot, medicine, sleeping upright (and cleaned air vents and changed air filter on the AC yesterday afternoon)..... he got a full night of sleep last night too, thank goodness. He was in bed at 8 and I headed in to find my bed around 8:30!
I think it will be a sewing room evening after the kids are in bed if I want to make some progress.
Happy Wednesday everyone.
