Let's see ... yesterday was a long day. I was up by 6 so I could be at WW at 7 (I decided to join - I've got a lot of weight to lose and the Dr. recommended them) for the 7:30 mtg. Then I was off to Ethics class at 10. Then to the store as soon as my test was handed in and graded (100 % :-)). Then home barely in time to pack for "all night quilt"
It started at 4, but I got there around 4:30. There were four other ladies. The owner of the shop T., an instructor for the shop, S., a lady by the name of J., and one by the name of L. Another L. arrived shortly after I did. It was fun.
We chatted and sewed and looked at fabric to see what would work for a new pattern (to me anyway) that she is teaching called "One Block Wonder." It is out of a book - I don't know if that is the name of the book or not. It is similar to a stack and whack method. You take 6 repeats of your fabric. Stack them up exactly on each other and whack away. You cut it into triangles and then put them together in hexagons so it's sort of like a kaleidescope pattern. She had two samples in the store and they looked really awesome. I might take the class if I can fit it into my schedule. It is Sat. Aug 18th and takes all day. Sweet, then the All-night quilt occurs :-).
We ordered pizza. The poor pizza place had to come three times. The 2nd L. made it too late to order with all of us as our order was already on its way. Then they messed hers up so they had to come back to replace it.
I was pooped from running all day and having a long week so by 9 I was packing up and heading home. It was cool though. I plan on coming every month. It is always the 3rd Saturday of the month. Several of the ladies meet on Thursdays to sew. Some of them are there all day. Some arrive after work and stay until the store closes at 7. I just might have to start doing that when I don't have class. Cool - more quilting time!!!
I got most of the stuff cut for the special one year old. This week I really need to work on his and on quilting (for the 3rd time) the 1930's blue/yellow quilt. That baby was born this past week. No, I still haven't uploaded pictures. I promise I will sometime soon though.
Shopping was good. I spent way too much of course. But I now have all fabrics for dad and sis. I got backing for special 1 year old and picked up a coordinating white to use as the train backgrounds. I also got backing for Pastor's baby girl and several F.Q.'s. I also picked up a Christmas panel. So now I just am looking for w.o.w. for SBS blocks (I completely forgot to look) and whatever novelty/coordinating prints I get for special one year-old's new baby bro, and coordinating fabric for the Christmas panel to make a throw.
My goals for this week are:
1. frog, baste, quilt, bind, and label 1930's quilt and give it away.
2. finish cutting, piece, baste, quilt, bind, and label special one year-old's.
3. shop!!!! - sbs blocks w.o.w, new baby bro, and Christmas panel coordinates.
4. Rest, relax, and have fun :-). I think I can do this one. Well, maybe the have fun part. I don't know about the rest and relax part. I never seem to find time for those :-D.
Well, I best get out of here (I came in to work some - but the printer is out of ink :-().
