SUNDAY took me up to the sewing room to deal with...
The bag of scraps that Candy brought to Quilt Group on Thursday:
Thank you, Candy!! I always enjoy seeing what new scraps I'll have to play with. This time it's a few bits of your special Indonesian fabric scraps. See the blue with squares in the photo above.
I'm SEW excited!!!
Along with the scraps that Candy brought, I had a MAJOR scrap infusion from Jean the same day:
Would you believe it took me a half hour to sort them all?!?!
The small bag on the LEFT used to hold my batik scraps. The top half of the large bag on the RIGHT came out of Jeans two scrap bags:
Thanks, Jean!!! The bag even held a few surprises...
I got a couple of Pear Squares from the "Pear Phase" that Jean went through a while back:
As if that wasn't enough...
The small (gallon) bag that once held my batiks now holds a wealth of Jean's hand dyed leftovers:
When I was done, I went off to get DS1 from college. Spring Break began when classes ended on Friday. I left around 1:30 and got back around 8:30. We had many errands to run! The good news is that our errands included a Mom and son "dinner date." Always enjoyable!!
On MONDAY there were miscellaneous errands to run and laundry to do. (Did I mention that DS1 was home for Spring Break??? Yes, Mt. Washmore is higher than ever!!) I managed to finish the LAST square and assembled the final row for O's T-quilt:
I also prepped an RSC block and did part of the sewing:
TUESDAY was my weekly Knit Group meeting. That evening, I found that Angela posted:
WEDNESDAY was reserved for QUILTING!!! I took the time to add the border blocks to O's T-quilt. I also completed ONE Maverick Star Block that I began the other day:
On THURSDAY morning, I made my way to Quilt Group. When I got home, I assembled the completed rows of O's T-quilt into a top:
Approximately 50" x 70"
This week FRIDAY was a FREE DAY for me. No errands, no chores, no work! I chose to begin the design process on S's T-quilt. I did get far, but I got a start.
The first layout mimicked that of her brother's quilt:
Then I combined some things:
Next, I will have to figure out some fill-in options because she's only 5 and all the clothes are smaller.
SATURDAY morning, I woke up EARLY to help Mr. Joyful get ready for Robotics Competition.
Unfortunately, Angela had not posted the LINK PARTY over at the So Scrappy Blog. :o((
I'll join in later, but I'm off to get ready for Quilt Bee. It's so early that I will have to see what all of the other RSC Quilters have been up to this week... later! Would you wait for me???
No? I didn't THINK so!! That's OK... enjoy yourself and I'll catch up tonight. :o))
Until next time...
