    Default WiP May 17 - 23, 2019

    Gosh, this week just hurdled by. Busy with end of the school year things for both grandkids, end of the season for my bell choir at church, an annual filing at work and the annual membership renewals at quilt guild that I'm responsible for as treasurer.

    Nuts, just nuts. And I'm on the outer background of my Carpenter's Wheel 24 inch block. I LOVE the way it looks.

    Hope things are going well in your world!

    I have started work on the River Rocks pattern by Sarah Maxwell. I actually have her Radiant Reflections pattern which has the same design in a different colorway and I am using pictures of the River Rock quilt and fabric from my stash to get close. So basically I have the right dimensions, and color wise I am winging it with what I have to work with. So far I am having lots of fun trying to find the right fabrics that are happy playing together with each other to make up the block. These are blocks 1B and 3A.

    This week I will be traveling to Missouri Star for their Quilt Academy. This will be my first trip and hopefully not my last.
    Stash Treasure Acquisitions Beyond Life Expectancy. My stash keeps me STABLE, oh yeah.... and dark chocolate.

    Quilted a baby quilt today to practice. I need to donate it, it was packed when I moved but it's a charity quilt.

    Well I finally got to my sewing room last week and started quilting the ribbon star quilt. It was sandwiched but sat untouched for over 6 weeks. Wednesday I decided enough - no more intimidation. I started quilting SITD on the sashings and stars. By Thursday all that was left was the border, decided on swirly one & went for it. It was done in an hour. No more intimidation. I finished the binding Friday, and showed mom when I visited in the afternoon. Yeah.

    This week I hope to attack other sewing projects that have been in a queue. A valance for a relative, 4 bean bags, mending for my DD and my son brought me his work vest to add extra pocket on inside. I also hope to sew a portable ironing pad for VQC group. If I get half of these done, I will be happy and will then sandwich another UFO to quilt.

    For this time of the year, it's very cool with off-on rainy days, so not much yardwork is getting done.

    Denise - have fun at the Academy. Enjoy the shopping and activities. Look forward to hearing about it.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
