Sunday, Sunday

 I have been doing a lot of slow stitching this week. The QAYG Hexagons are close to having 4 sections done.. which when stitched together is half of the quilt (88x34).  I have the last row to attach on the 4th section and then I might just stitch all 4 sections together. This turned out better than I had hoped!

I started the red applique of Erin's Butterfly onto the background. I hope to stitch the black body today and add the antenna. I also prepped the teal butterfly to it's background for February. 

I don't think Emily got to the coop yesterday so I'll do a quick clean out there and check their water and food bins. So far - no more critters in the backyard other than the chickens, thank goodness. 

I know a quick run to the store for lunch items for the kiddo's is on tap, unless I stop in Inverness after picking up the kids from Grandma's house tonight. I have a batch of oatmeal chip cookie dough chilling in the fridge waiting to be baked off. Those might last until Tuesday.

Aidan's team advanced to the next round in Robotics so there will be lots of early and late times at school to work on revising things a bit. I should be able to go to the next one and watch as it is local here in Ocala instead of up in Tallahassee like previous years. Emily will have extra band practices as well as she was boosted up to Advanced band for a couple of concerts they have coming up in the next couple of months. Emily is just doing the Horse Evaluation team this year in FFA and not showing the chickens. She has that in a couple of weeks at the state fair in Tampa.  Of course, girl scout cookies arrive next Saturday as well - so my month of February looks to have lots of juggling and hand work opportunity time. Good thing I have lots of possible projects to select from! (Hexagons, embroidery frosty, cross stitch, knitting, crochet, applique)

RSC in Red

Finishing up with red this weekend. I hope to make a few more nine patches in red. I used 1.5 inch strips for these and it looks like a ruler set I already have will work for the other 2 parts needed for the Jacks Chain quilt. This year I will work on making bunches of nine patch blocks. I am using a white dot print - because I know I can get more of it easily.

I added another crossed canoe block in red for 2 this month. I love how it looks like a curve but is really just an illusion.

The butterfly block has been hand appliqued onto the background and the body is back basted. It needs some embroidery antenna and the body stitched down. After a double kid late pick up (Emily normal time 3:45 and Aidan at 5:30 so we hung around the school for him - we live a bit away and with Friday traffic I was afraid I would not make it back in time), then home for a quick bite before I headed to Inverness 45 minutes away to swap cars with Papa Andy. I was too tired to finish up the butterfly last night. It should get completed tonight if I am not too wiped out from Thinking Day with Emily and the troop. I am transporting 4 girls and my co-leader so I needed the bigger van.  We chose England this year. They moved the venue since it is COLD here in Florida today. It is not slated to get much into the 40's all day where I am, so a bit chilly for people who do not have proper clothing for cold weather. It will be in the 80's again in a few days! 


Linking up with the RSC Challenge

The boys are off to a robotics tournament  (FIRST - For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) in our area. There are 10 teams from the middle schools and our school is sending 6 teams. It is the first time Aidan has gone so it should be a good learning experience. He and another boy on his team put in extra hours before and after school this week to finish up their projects. Thank goodness the 3rd one is back from being out for 10 days so he will be able to be there today as well to help out. Lets just say he was really excited and anxious, but really excited last night when I picked him up from school. Something about a robot flip worked and is worth up to 40 points? They also have a quick jab to move the chicken out of the way instead of going around it? I think it will make sense after I see the video Greg will take today but the teacher was laughing and gave them a fist bump. He might have also called their Homeroom teacher and got them excused Friday morning to stay in his class to continue working for the 40 minutes before their block day class started! They got from 8am until close to 11 to work on it as well as 3:45-5:30 last night. It was a long day at school. 

I'd better grab breakfast before the girls start arriving at my house.

January 2022 Table Topper Challenge

The challenge is back this year with a twist. We have a theme to go with the RSC monthly color. January was red and the theme was Snowman. I had various ideas of what to do with scraps to make snowmen. But then I saw a cute wall hanging on Melisa's blog and I had to make my own version! 

The beginning from scraps on the cutting mat.

I added some fabric buttons, a carrot nose and some embroidery for the mouth.

The eyes got added with minimal quilting. I pulled a black striped fabric to make a binding and a leftover scrap (probably from the 1990's?) for the backing.

Ta Da! I think he is pretty cute for a simple snowman. 

Dressed up with a snowman my Mom made and some snowflake tea light candle holders.

It's only Tuesday?

Yesterday, my 17 year old Sophie cat passed away. We knew it was coming. She had stopped eating and was getting weaker and weaker. Her kidneys have been an issue for a few years but she appeared happy and in no pain so we let her go on her terms. Up until yesterday she was still purring when we petted her. She is buried out back next to Maxie cat - her sister that passed 4 years ago. 

This morning we had a opossum in the cage. Greg released it but upon further research it is probably what got Fred the chicken. We will try to capture it again and rehome it far, far away. It was a cute little bugger though.

3 sets of 12 groups of hexagons are put together. I have 5 sections to go. Now that I know how they go together it is moving along pretty quickly. I also might have spent a lot of time in the living room with Sophie stitching on Sunday.

Slow stitching Sunday

Today I'll be working on stitching these QAYG hexagons together by hand. I have them all into sets of 8 from last nights stitching. I'll make them into rows of 16 today and then start stitching the 3 rows together. This is section 3 of 8 for this quilt.  It measures 22x34 at the longest points. 

The first 2 sections.

I was visiting blogs and saw the cutest snowman wall hanging on Pinker N Pumpkin Quilting & Stitching yesterday. I hope she does not mind but I ran into the sewing room and grabbed some red and extra white and began stitching this up. My guess on sizes was a little off but I'm making it work!

After some hand stitching last night it was to this point. I tried using my applipops for the circles. Lets just say someone needs more practice... but my snowman is not about perfection as he might be melting down here in Florida. 

Ollie (I know it looks like Peanut but he is about 3 pounds heavier than his brother!)

I'll be adding eyes to him today and then will have to think about getting him finished off for Saturday's link up for the 2022 Table Scraps Challenge - where red is the RSC color and snowman was the theme for the month.

Linking up with the Slow Sunday Stitchers.

Yesterday we lost another Chicken, to a raccoon this time. Fred was a favorite of everyone - she was one of the original pack and had a bit of white on her so I could always tell her apart from the others. So far we lost Emma and now Fred. Rosie had not put herself to bed last night like the others so Emily was headed out to shoo her in when she spotted the Raccoon about to pounce on her. She scared off the raccoon and we got Rosie tucked into the coop and secure for the night.  They will not be happy today as I think we will keep them in the run until we can capture the raccoon and rehome it far, far away from the house. We normally have their door to the run open so they can go into the fenced in back yard (almost an acre) and wander around all day.

A little red stitching...

I got the inner circle cut and hand stitched to the wings for the red butterfly. I think I picked the black for the bodies of these and just need to cut out 9 of them and then I'll start the process of hand applique to the background and adding some embroidery antenna as well.

I had forgotten I planned to use the crossed canoe die this year for the RSC. I pulled this red and some white dot print and quickly stitched up this 9 inch block. I think I will pull another red and make one more - 2 each month for 10 months will make 20 blocks. 36x45 will make a nice baby size quilt I think. 

 I still need to make some little nine patch blocks using 1.5 inch squares for the eventual Jacks Chain quilt. That will be this week's project I think.

I continue to stitch together the hexagons I was making last year. The second section of 12 is now stitched together. 2 down and 6 to go!

 It is already noon and I feel like I have not done much yet! The kids are to school. I might have ordered a Arkansas Traveller BOB die from Accuquilt for $40 this morning.... I had it in my cart last night  but did not want to pay shipping and didn't see a small die I wanted to bump it over $50.... so they kindly sent me a free shipping code. Yup - purchased and used my measly points to knock $4 off it. So if you really want a die but are thinking on the shipping... go ahead and pop it into your bag and go about your business. It saves in there and they might entice you to get it with a deal! With tax I got it for about $38.

A quick shower and then I grabbed the big bucket and the grippers Aidan uses when he mows the lawn and picked up a full bucket of trash off the side lawn by the busy road this morning. Usually after trash pickup there is a little but there was a whole bunch Monday that I noticed Tuesday and the wind had a lot landing against our fence. All picked up and into our trash bin (in a bag) for Monday.  We needed new towels in our master bath - 10 years and they just needed replacing. We both wanted to 'feel' the towels before we got them so hubby and I went shopping this morning and both agreed on some. I also got a science poster board for our Thinking Day Display for Scouts next weekend and some shock for the pool.

Lunch was leftovers from last night - the potato all disappeared but I did have one small chicken piece and roasted broccoli from the sheet pan dinner. Tonight is my Mom's Spaghetti meat sauce. I have not made it in a while and everyone likes it now that they will eat tomato's!

This was my view last night as I was stitching 2 rows together. Peanut decided my OTT light was too bright for his eyes and pulled this end over them to block it and took a nap.... until I needed to move it to stitch. The look he gave me before he repositioned and tucked his head against my hip and out of the light.... good thing looks can't kill!

I managed to stitch all 15 sides to get the 2 sections together. No unpicking so I might have figured it out finally! I'll work on attaching that last section tonight.

I have 3 hours until kid pick up .... I think I'll spend 30-60 minutes in the office area with a trash bag. Then my reward is the sewing area to play... where I should also be cleaning but sewing will be the reward for cleaning the office.

The next set of 12....

 I pulled the next set of 12 and they are stitched into 3 sets of 4. It was a relaxing day of watching Murdoch Mysteries on Hulu. I am still on Season 1 but close to the end of it I think. I also finished watching the last few episodes of the British Bake Off on Netflix.  Back to work and school today for everyone. Sigh... back to the old thinking of what to make for dinner again this week. No clue at this point. I did just make a hot ham and swiss sandwich (ok - my version of grilled cheese) for lunch. A fully stocked freezer and pantry and no clue what I want for dinner. Might be due to lack of appetite still but I'm sure I will come up with something. Worst case - I'll bake some chicken with herbs on it with some rosemary roasted potato and a frozen veggie of some sort. Maybe as a sheet pan dinner like this ... we will see. I know I have fresh lemon and everything else needed to make it.

OMG for January is completed!

I did a lot of watching tv and resting yesterday while getting some hand stitching in on these Hexagons. This section of 12 groups of 4 is all together. Now I know how they should go together and I only had a couple of oops to unpick around the end of the first 2 section joins yesterday. It is a learning process!

Here is a shot of the back - already quilted and bound so once all the sections are together it is done! This measures 34x22 for this section. There will be 8 sections so it should end up around 68x88 I believe.

I was thinking I had to work today but a quick check of the company website and we have it off! Another day to putter and I plan to be in the sewing room today since I am feeling a lot better. Kids are off school today as well.

Linking up with the January Finish OMG.  I have completed 2 more sets after this one - so 3 sets so far for the month.

Stitching Hexagon rows...

I was a little under the weather Saturday so sat in my chair and did some hand stitching. I was all excited as it was going together so well.

Look how nice it lined up to stitch!

Then a little niggle in the brain had me open it up to check and oops.... somehow I was a little off when I started stitching it. Sigh, that middle teal blue needed to be on the other side of the orange.

So out came this little seam ripper. All that stitching is out. I decided to stop for the day and I'll attempt to try it again today.

Since I will be doing a pretty lazy day again today I might try to work on the knitted sheep pillow for Aidan as well. I believe this is where I left it. I have watched a few videos on how to do this properly now so it should make progress.  Lets hope both projects go smoothly today.

RSC Week 3

 I'm not sure what happened this week but there was no stitching that I can recall! Here is a rose in my front bushes. Not as full as other years but I do love them as they are just opening up. Scroll down to the bottom for my 2 red sewing photos!

Saturday - Emily had her second jumping lesson. She was outside the arena and out front with 4-5 jumps set up really low. Working on control and form but she did do a bunch of jumping. The horse was being a little testy and she had to reign her in a few times. She also is officially a horse woman now - she fell off the horse after a jump. She slid off her side, popped right back up. I know she was shaken but I let Liz handle it. She checked her then got her back on the horse and had her do 2 more circuits before calling it a day. She looked the best jumping after the fall! No bruising or pain after either! I decided to not talk about it on the ride home and distracted her with other conversation so we could avoid the emotional crying I knew she wanted to avoid. She was a trooper though.  This was a good run through of jumping if you care to see. Not bad for her second lesson!

Sunday - Is a blur. I know kids went to Grandma's for the day and I had the nightly pickup - 45 minutes there, visit for an hour or so and then 45 minutes home. I think I made a veggie minestrone soup from all the fresh produce I picked up Friday morning at the Market of Marion. I might have cut out some red 2.5 inch squares for 16 patches. I got word while at Grandma's that my co-leader from scouts (a teacher) took a home test and was positive. That led to checking to see if I had another background checked adult that could be at my meeting in place of her...

Monday - Em had a dentist appt for a cavity in the morning so Greg got tapped to take Aidan to school. Bad accident on the way to the school - but they were able to get through. Em's appt was quick and no numbing. We had said she could have the day off thinking she would be all numb and you can't eat lunch or play a clarinet in that state. She was not happy when I said she had to go to school! Home to prep her lunch and get ready then a ride to drop her off to school. She missed her first period class but got there right at the change bell.  Her brothers reaction at lunch when he looked up and she was at the next table 'What are you doing here?'. I got a few hours of work in and a walk, then pick up kids, make dinner and head to scouts. Turns out the accident from above was another girl scout leaders younger sister and her hubby. Both banged up bad but ok.

Tuesday - Hubby aged a year. Standard drop to school, work, pick up from school. Hubby decided he did want a restaurant meal but with cases high we opted for take out. I ran to Publix to get his chocolate ganash cake and then to Pig and Cattle for our meals... which they didn't put in until I got there at they have a lot of people messing up the 2 locations. Most things are slow cooked (pulled pork, ribs, briscuit, etc) so it is pretty quick although that place was hopping with in person and take out/drive through business. 

Wednesday - Kids to school, work, walk at lunch, work, pick up kids. I agreed to make a meal for the above accident family on Thursday and it was a bit of a coordination to get that to Lindsay Thursday but we got it figured out. That meant a trip to Walmart to pick up a few things after dinner. Somehow I slept wrong and pulled something in my back - in hindsight I should have just moved the cats!

Thursday - kids to school - my day off work but I was mostly in the kitchen today. I made 3 quiches - 2 ham and cheese for the family with salad and homemade chocolate chip cookies. Parents and 4 kids. The other quiche was a veggie clean out the fridge for my house. Both parents went to pick up my kids from school, a trip to Wendy's for early dinner then we went to visit the Belleview High School - Cambridge program and open house to see the school and the various electives/programs they offer. Lets just say it is not like the high school I remember! Their media center is essentially a real production room - with 3 sets for news/interviews, a sound room for taping and editing and then the computer room for classes. The Ag program had a cow and calf there for petting and photos and we talked with a few kids in those classes. The culinary pretty much sets people up to run a business - catering or various restaurants with the certifications needed. The robotics room was a range of engineering options and things to do and learn from electrical, to programming 3 d printers to various robot arms/cars to do tasks. We did not look into the health sciences (all health related fields), ROTC - air force/engineering and a few other offerings. We did learn that with passing 7 Cambridge AICE exams over the 4 years - they would receive their HS diploma and an AICE certificate and at least 21 college credits that are recognized at colleges over the country/international. I decided I want to go back to high school!

Friday - I had been checking in on my co-leader and by mid week both kids had it (11 yo twins) and Thursday her hubby had it as well. Everyone was offering the 'tell us if you need anything' - myself included over the week. Well, I decided I was going to make a grocery run and deliver that morning so I texted her with my ideas and asked if they had preferences on drinks. I let work know I was out for a couple of hours while I hit Walmart (I would loved to have cooked but there is a nut allergy in their house and I did not want to put him in the hospital!) - got soups, crackers, various drinks, tp, kleenex, a roaster chicken.  I dropped it to their door and rang the bell. Then back to work, pick up kids and hubby wanted pizza so I call in the order in car line and it is ready when I have the kids in car to pick up down the road!  I got a late walk in but the back spasm was worse so a nice hot soak in the tub helped.

A side note - while in line at Walmart I was chatting with the cashier who let me know earlier there was a lady checking out who said she was covid +, the cashier asked right now and she confirmed. Once she was through she made everyone wait as she sanitized the whole area as best as she could. Craziness down here in Florida still. 

Saturday - hubby took Em to horses this morning for her jumping lesson. I was planning to go but  decided to stay home.... and sew! I just stitched these 2 16 patch blocks with supervision from Peanut.

While looking through drawers, I found these friendship stars. I might add 2 more in reds and then continue these each month.

Audio books listened to this week - A Stroke of Malice by Anna Lee Huber (#8 in series) - I love the voice of the person reading this one, I is for Innocent by Sue Grafton (#9 in series), K is for Killer by Sue Grafton (#11 in series). Currently have High Five by Janet Evanovich.

Slow stitching Sunday....

 I have been working away at hand stitching this set of 12 Hexagon groups together this week. The groups of 4 became groups of eight with 3 sides to hand stitch. Then they became columns of 16 with 3 sides to stitch. Now it is time to do the long attaching with 15 sides to stitch together! As soon as I set these down on the floor for a photo Peanut needed to inspect them. I moved him off for the second photo.

The black line indicates the next line of stitching.  You can read more about my Quilt As You Go Hexagons here.

Back during the December Sales with Accuquilt I picked up these two on a buy one get one 99% off. They were similar in price. I figured those shapes would help me finish up the applique border on the midget applique quilt that has been stalled for a while. Who doesn't love a playful butterfly, dragon fly or bumblebee? Those might be used in my placemats this year as well.

RSC in red

 Finishing up 2021 projects.

I made the last 2 blocks for the RSC Squares this week. Now I can play with the blocks and start stitching them together. I do need to press them first - the ironing board was full and I was too lazy to clear it off for pressing.

Peanut had to inspect the blocks.

I also cut out the wings for Erin's Butterfly in red. They are stitched into their wings. I need to press, cut the inner circle and hand stitch that to each wing and then I can baste it. I think I was planning to applique them to the background this year and add the body and antennae. 2023 for hand quilting it. I will have 9 blocks - when the red is completed I'll have 8 and just need to add one more color to the mix.

January OMG 2022

 It has taken me a bit of time to figure out what I want my January OMG to be. I finally decided I'd like to hand piece one 'section' on my Hexagon Quilt as you go quilt. I have hand pieced  one per day last year and managed to get most of them into sets of 4. I'm going to grab 12 of those sets of 4 and hand piece them into rows of 8 and then stitch those all together. I did a different color each month so that grouping will have a variety of color.  This is the first section I will work on for January. I will probably move the last column around a bit to space out the light and darks. 

I just sorted all the sets of 4 into groupings of 12, attempting to spread out the colors a bit for future sections. 
So, the goal for January is to have these 12 sets all sewn together by hand. It should be a very achievable goal.

Wednesday check in....

 The kids are back in school! If you heard a big cheer this morning, it might have been me dropping them off to school! They both indicated that just a few of their teachers wore masks, the principal did (as they said he always has his on! Smart man!). Not many kids did- about what it was in December. As the Florida government passed a law in November not allowing masks mandates, vaccine mandates, and allowing parents to opt out of quarantining and isolation.... it should be an interesting month.

I opted out of a GS leader meeting tonight as I know the only ones wearing a mask would be me and Jenny, another leader who lost a parent to a few girls in her troop in October to COVID. I am planning to meet with my troop for our normal Monday night meetings,  but we meet at a church where masking is required and the girls and parents respect that. There are only 6 now so I can spread them out well too.

Lets see - meals for the week since I know I struggle with coming up with things I figured others do as well! Monday it was cool (60 degrees and lovely weather from the 85 on Sunday!). I decided it was a great night for meatloaf and baked potato with green beans. I use the Betty Crocker cookbook for my meatloaf - and use about 3-4 pieces of white bread instead of bread crumbs because that is what my Mom did!. We add mozzarella to half the loaf in the middle (emily does not like the cheese in there and she helped make it) and ketchup on top. Tuesday - I had ground pork to use since I forgot to separate it before I froze it and there was 24 ounces in the package. I had half a cabbage in the fridge and some carrot and scallion so I made Egg Roll in a Bowl on Tuesday night. Ms. Emily made some rice in the quick cooker (Pampered chef version of insta pot) and added some soy sauce and an egg to make her version of Japanese Steak House rice.  Wednesday.... it was lemon chicken with thyme over rice with green peas. I believe if I remember to get mushrooms tomorrow we will do beef stroganoff on Thursday with a green salad and egg noodles. Friday - Papa Johns Pizza (supporting the local economy!). I have been doing salads for lunch with cucumber, roma tomato, olives, hard boiled egg and a home made vinegrette. Breakfast has been oatmeal with craisins and a little brown sugar. 

As for sewing.... I have been stitching away at hexagons and have all the black ones into sets of 4. I'll prep the needed extra hexagons to finish up the color sets tomorrow and then will begin putting the sets of 4 into sets of 8. 

I have tomorrow off so I will plan to do a little prep work on the memory quilt and sew the last 2 blocks needed for the RSC21 Squares quilt. I was able to find and cut out the parts needed for the four patches and all the other squares for a maroon and a red block.  I also pulled out the little basket of red scraps and cut out 20 'wings' for a red butterfly block. I should be able to  machine stitch that tomorrow so I can hand baste it in the car line tomorrow.

I may take the 2 crumb blocks in red and stitch them together to make a table placemat size rectangle. I am picturing a nice white snowman on one side of the placemat. He might need a jaunty top hat... we will see what happens.

Winter 2022 UFO Challenge.

The fall challenge only had one finish. Lets hope the Winter quarter is a little more productive. 

Block Collections.

1.) I know I have at least one more cut and in a baggie somewhere to fill that open spot for a 7x6 setting. These are hand pieced.... and might need a little fixing along the way.

 2.) Hexagon flowers on a black background. These are a stack of blocks I hand pieced a few years ago then hand appliqued to the black background a couple years after that!  Not sure if they will become one or two quilts....

3.) Crumb blocks.... might these end up in a quilt? Or the start of some baskets?

4.) Sweet Confetti blocks - I have 96 of these made.... need to be put together and quilted.

***5.) Midget Applique quilt from Sentimental Stitches. I need to add  more flowers and leaves and the vines... and the bottom yellow border. This one is completely hand pieced.

6.) Ella Maria Deacon blocks - make a few more and finish them off into a top. I believe I was making these by hand. Patterns from Sentimental Stitches.

**7.) Purple applique hearts... need to figure out how they want to be set.

**8.)  this quilt that has been an on and off, leader and ender for years. My scrappy irish chain. I believe I had a bucket of 2 inch squares next to my sewing machine for a while and would make sets, and rows and blocks in between sewing other things. I think it wants to get competed.

9.) Midget block collection - I started these in Vermont in 2010! I have a light blue for sashing.

10.) Civil War Blocks

****11.) Endless Diamond Blocks - Currently in the hoop being hand quilted!

12.) Birds in the Air block collection

13.) Harmony - hand pieced project started March 2021- one 28 inch block completed - 3 to go.

14.) Lets go fly a kite- because it might have percolated long enough in my head already. - 2 completed into a placemat august 2021.

15.) Cat and mouse is on the frame in process of hand quilting but has been sadly neglected.

16) This one stayed on the list - needs quilting. Vermont Quilt Festival Booth Hop from either 2008 or 2009. I have backing for this and it is 71x71.

17.) Green Tumblers - a hand pieced top. 

18.) Hoarfrost - top is done will it get quilted this year? **Snowflake gray backing

19.) Baby Bear Paw quilt top ** Made back from a class in 1999 I think from Yankee Pride. ** Polka dot backing

20.) Trip around the World

21.) Y2K Joann's BOM - quilt top

22.) Tumbler flag - this did not come out how I imagined.... It might get reinvented after taking parts out. We will see. **Suggestion to make it wider. 

23.) 1857 Quilt Along Top

24.) Spring Hexagons - not sure if this wants to be bigger or not.... 

25.) FCQG baby quilt challenge. 40x48 have a backing for this. ***Polka dot backing

26.) Triple Irish Chain - green. 80x80 I think. I did find both fabrics extra with it... Might need a green or cream border first or both... Made in the early 2000's.

Found some more to add to the mix! My current RSC2021 blocks.

****27.) Hexagon QAYG- 362 have been stitched. About 12 more to add I think. Progress is being made. The groups of 4 will be working on becoming groups of 8! All by hand.

28.) Garden Path blocks - a few more got added last quarter. missing purple, orange and light green and maybe dark blue.

****29.) RSC 2021 blocks - 2 more blocks in red and maroon to go!

30.) Full Stop Sew along.... 2021 . Re thinking this one - might eliminate some of the white space.

31 - Memory quilt for Olivia. I think I will do a jeans quilt using 6.5 inch squares. Some will be pieced. One stack is about 50 and the other are parts to be pieced. 

I'd like to get the midget applique borders finished this quarter, finish hand quilting on Endless Diamonds and put together the Hexagon QAYG. Hoping to finish piecing the RSC2021 quilt blocks in red and then maybe get that one quilted on the machine? Time will tell but as the mood strikes I tend to go with what I 'feel like' working on at any given time.

Hopefully I get to check off a few as finished this quarter!
