Nothing new done

I really had planned to do the binding on the pink and green quilt, but the band activities took over.  What I thought would only take a little over half the day took all day.
I hope the next 3 days are no like that.  I'm hoping they go the half day and I have some time to myself.

  • Put binding on pink and green quilt
  • Cut more 2.5” squares from baby clothing
  •   Vacuum and dust
  •  Clean off desk (started and redone)
  • Redo the lease for the trailer
  • Sew some of UFO together


  • Get photos to download to the right spot
  • Uniform items done for band       
  •  Uniform fitting finalized for band for next week
  • Laundry
  •  Update the school calendar on my phone

    Final update on trip list

    My plans for my handwork are:
    1.    Take the signature quilt with me to bind a. DONE
    2.    Take a hand quilting project that I don’t like doing to try and finish. IN PROCESS  I have 12 more stars that need to be done
    3.    Take the extra yarn to make more of the scarves and finally get it all used up
          Made one scarf There are loads of yarn left.  It will stay in the car for use when I need it.
    4.    Take the bonus hst with me to press and trim.  These are normally my summer project and maybe I’ll have enough 2” hst to finish up the next border on my bonus triangle quilt. IN PROCESS  I showed a photo of what I had done.  There are always more that need to be worked on.
    5.    Take some applique blocks with me.  I still need to pull the fabric and trace the wax paper to get them ready. Won't be done, forgot the thread to stitch them down
    6.    Take a couple of books to read.stated one and need to finish it
    7.    Take my graph paper and colored pencils to dream STARTED ONE QUILT Still playing with a design.
    8.  Handwork on thread catchers

    baby clothing quilts

    I am once again cutting on the baby clothing
    Non stretchy pieces

    Stretchy ones that needed to have stabilizer on the back

    the next one that needs stabilizing

    The container with all the rest of the stuff in it.  It is still full.
    I have to cut 2.5", 4.5" and 6.5" depending on the design that is embroidered on the item.
    Then comes putting them all together.  I've done a few to make sure it is OK, but it is a long way from completion. :(

    unpacking

    One of my tasks was to work on the bonus hst and see how many I could get trimmed.
    I didn't get them all done, but some is better than none.
