I got all of my entries for the upcoming quilt show done, labeled, numbered, and bagged for pick up. So I dumped some scraps to play with more of the Debbie Mumm Sampler blocks. BUT, my helper decided this was a good spot to take some personal time.
So I moved to the corner to do some sorting and cutting. That bag of scraps is working down.
Then himself thought this was a good place to hold things down. It's very hard to cut small pieces when a big cat is laying on them.
So I resorted to my barrel system as I needed nine 4-patch blocks and this was easier than trying to work around a cat. I need 11 of the sawtooth stars though and managed one before he settled in.
So I changed gears and put the rows for the Sail-Away quilt that is a commission piece. I don't have a thing for the back, so will run out early tomorrow and pick up a double fleece for this as I want it quilted and ready for mail out on Monday. She. also, ordered two of my quilts from the shop so three quilts will go out on Monday.
I picked up a commission for a small cross stitch piece, too. So I need to pull my books for border designs and my folder of 'fonts' . I have a rough draft from discussion with the client so I know what direction I am headed. I hope for a 3 week (or less) turn around on this so there won't be a lot of sewing while this happens.
We had some sunshine and warmer weather, which was much appreciated with a couple of walks around the property. I was beginning to feel like a slug!
