Today I had a lot to do and did I get it all done? No! I didn’t really think I would, but I was hopeful! I made my list and I did make progress.
First off, I need to make my binding for my Dresden star quilt, sleeve and label and then get it on the quilt. Why does it always takes me longer than I think it should? I did get on the computer more than I should and then I was totally distracted during the Texans football game. My goodness, they sure made me nervous, but they did pull out a win. Yippee!
I also fixed lunch for tomorrow and I made a cake. But the main thing that I needed to have accomplished I didn’t get done. I needed to get a quilt cut out and ready to take with me on Wednesday. I decided on a Red Crinoline Quilt (formerly Bonnie Blue Quilts) pattern, called Tavern Blues. I did get it started and I made pretty good progress, but I still have 4 more darks to cut and then I have to cut 140, 2-inch squares out of 6 fabrics, plus the borders. Since there is a lot of sewing involved I doubt I will get to sew on the borders. It is taking me FOREVER! I’m chipping away, a little at a time.
This is what I have cut up so far – see, it doesn’t look like much!
Tomorrow is a big day; Kara will be taking Adley to daycare for the first time. Oh, I dread it for her, I remember how hard it was for me and I hate that she is going to have to go through that experience. Please keep her in your prayers, thank you!
I started pulling things to take to Florida for Camp Blanding; I am so looking forward to my 5-day sewing retreat!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads, love and hugs!
