Monday Making


I will finish up these blocks for the Secret Santa Mystery with Temecula Quilt co.  I had hoped to get them done over the weekend, but I had a bit of a mishap that created some colorful words.


Some one (who shall remain nameless) decided my lovely pile of laid out units was a wonderful place to sprawl out on while very wet and muddy.  So a  number of pieces had to be hand washed, towel dried, and now to be repressed.

Once they are done I have to get into a 'quilting' mode.  I cleared out the small table with the Singer for some paper piecing with strings - my breaks between quilting laps.  I have enough batt on the roll to probably get 6 more quilts and a few wallhangings finished for the year.  Then I will have honored my 'focus' for the year - it slipped sometimes.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. Oh no! At least they all came clean and are reclaimable. Here in Oklahoma the dirt is red and it permanently stains anything white (my brother's socks were always orange from playing in the dirt when he was little). Hope you get in lots of stitching time and get all caught up.

  3. Some kind of help is the kind of help...we all could do without! Moe's mischief set you back a bit -- at least it was recoverable! :)

  4. I can’t believe a cat would do such a thing. Some smelly dog must have come in and then left again. You just weren’t around to see it.

  5. Oh nooo, how frustrating--"Someone" should be Very Sorry..but probably not, lol, right? At least a dog (and not smelly either!!)would have the grace to look abashed ...;)))
    Glad you were able to rescue those blocks--
    hugs and have a Wonderful Thanksgiving Celebration.

  7. Very nice. I only recently discovered Burgoyne Surrounded quilts and had to try my hand. Fortunately my furry critter doesn't jump. Denise @fortheloveofgeese
