It’s been a week! The emotions are erratic and I have been unsettled and disorganized. I’m sure you all can identify with these feelings. I’m telling myself it is a form of cabin fever.
My list for my hoped for progress is:
1. Finish the binding on Star Crossed Plaid. On the last side.
2. Finish piecing the flimsy for the test pattern. Still working on it. Lots of sweet little units needing to be made to start assembling the blocks. All I can say is I’m working on it!
3. Try to get some more cutting and designing done on my Memory Quilt for DH. Concentration levels were too low to be able to think my ideas and plans through.
4. Put the Vortex blocks together to flimsy stage. Didn’t touch it.
5. If the thread I ordered comes in, finish quilting my Robot Quilt. Thread order did not arrive. Still waiting to finish.
6. Prep another quilt from the To Be Quilted pile for quilting if I can find a backing that works. Another one sandwiched to start when Robbie is done.
7. Check with our local hospitals to see if they are in need of cotton masks yet. If so, start sewing. No hospitals needing them but plenty of front line workers. 127 masks made and distributed.
8. Keep working on my socks and working on the new crochet stitch I’m trying to learn. Managed a bit more on both of these.
I did also finish my Project Quilting 11.6 project since I needed to sew.
And a squirrel attacked me with a DREAMI project to post a finish on my QQQ Making Us Laugh Blog Hop post on March 23. This was also a project done from my scrap bins.
I was also able to show one of the tops I had finished a couple of months ago. Quirky Pinwheels was fun and a quick top to make. You can about it here. The pattern will be in the April issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.
So here’s my list of goals for the upcoming week:
1. Finish my pattern test. I will get these piles of goodies assembled in to a top.
2. Finish my Star Crossed Plaid and get it into the mail.
3. Keep working on the memory quilt.
4. Assemble Vortex in to a top.
5. Finish quilting Robbie.
6. Start quilting the next quilt.
7. Work on selecting patterns for two upcoming blog hops I’m participating in.
8. Work on my knitting and two crochet projects.
Try to keep positive out there. Just remind yourselves that you are saving lives by staying home. Remember that this will pass and eventually we will be able to visit our family and friends, our LQS’s, Guild meetings and attend social occasions sooner, if we take the time to self isolate now.
Thanks for visiting. Hope you are fondling fabric and getting to use some of that stash! Comments are appreciated and responded to! 😷 Carol
