There will be some breaks from cleaning (something about the AC guy coming for the twice a year cleaning on Tuesday... so I should clean up the sewing area/office so he can get into the closet where the unit is in the garage. Including finishing putting away xmas stuff boxes and all the **** all over the place that gets shoved in there. Sigh....
I will piece the backing for Aidan's quilt as well today and cut his batting. He gets to pin it this week.
I already logged into work once and moved something to production. I should also log in and finish getting something tested so I can promote that to test.... the joys of programming with the flexibility to work when I can. I am making up some time since Monday was a holiday, the kids had early release on Wednesday and Friday I was in and out with a Mammogram in the morning (all is well!) and kid pick up in the afternoon. Still 4 hours short for my 20 hour week.....
|Excuse the foot!|
Not too bad! I do wonder what color will be hand appliquéd to the black in February..... but I'll have to wait for Angela to announce it later this week.
For the hand pieced quilt along.... I made my blue and white block this week.
I found one of my girls liked hand piecing the flag for France at girl scouts (my one who doesn't like to try anything and changed her mine and really liked it!). I sent the hand pieced quilt along link to her family and asked if she wanted to do it I'd be happy to cut things out for her from my stash. She accepted - so I need to cut some white, black and blue fabrics and fill a little hand stitching holder I have with what she needs to hand off to her tomorrow night. Emily decided to do it too... and has been picking pinks and teals....we will see what she decides to stitch. I pulled some shades of pink while clearing off the floor (who knew - it is a beige carpet in there!). I suppose that since the lunch break is over (I made corn chowder with 2 leftover corn on the cobbs from dinner last night) it is time to head back in and finish picking up/sorting and vacuuming the garage area a.k.a my office and sewing area. Well, maybe I'll stitch a purple hexagon or two first.... and run out and pick up photo's for the kids science project due in the next week.
Linking up with Kathy and the other slow stitchers. I promise... I will be sitting and stitching something by this evening. I'll need to rest and relaxing with my feet up and a needle in my hand!
