    Default May 16th - Flash Sewing for this weekend!

    Well, I don't have any cats at the moment, but I'll step in for Debbie (HDWench) and get this kicked off.

    Need motivation? It seems we work better in groups - our own little quilting guild online!

    Post here what you want to or plan on working on this weekend and report in during the next few days with your progress.


    I'm hoping to finish the top to a stained glass quilt I started a couple weekends ago. I also need to get to the Post Office tomorrow to send off my PICU quilts. Need to go to an office supply store to get some patterns I drew up printed off. One takes 11 by 17" paper and my copier won't do that big.

    I'm sure I have 12 other things on my sewing table to work on as well. Oh, 8 more favors for the retreat to finish up too!

    What about you?

    Hope to finish the quilting on the "My Sunshine" quilt and get the binding started.

    My shoulder is immobilized, just two days, and I am going bat sh%& CRAZY.
    I have SO much to finish and start....And just the thought of not being able to sew, makes me want to sew even more!
    Lord, give me strength. I'm ready to toss this contraption in a garbage heap!

    SEW on, chicas!
    Because you CAN!....
    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

    Ugh, you probably can't even cut stuff out. I didn't have much time to sew there for a while with work and then having to catch up on other things during the weekend. But a couple nights I cut out some quilts and made my own "kits" and bagged them in ziplocks, all ready for me to sew when I got a break!

    Sue........take care of that shoulder.......so you can get back to quilting!

    Karen, thanks for starting the flash sewing. I'm thinking I need to tackle just getting my sewing area reorganized and de-cluttered! It is a mess and I must have been in a sewing slump lately.......not getting much accomplished. But if I take this weekend to clean & straighten maybe I will be more likely to get in here and sew.

    Hopefully........cleaning & organizing sewing area counts too!

    I am working on yet another Irish Chain Quilt. The last one I made was too small for my day bed after I washed it. I'm not going to embroider butterflies on this one. I also want to cut a houndstooth quilt and my mystery quilt fabrics.

    Glad this is going again. I finally picked up the wood so I can finish my cutting table. So excited. So this weekend I need to sand it a bit than. I am going to wrap it with batting and fabric so the whole top can serve as an ironing board when needed. My large cutting mat will cover most of it, I think. And, I hope to convince my daughter to help me finish hanging the pegboard

    If I can get those accomplished I can finish quilting the wedding gift quilt I started before. I moved

    Good luck all. Cant wait to see picks on all the progress we make.

    Um ... a meal, but you might have to clean off a place to sit.
