Not such a good sewing week

Well, I guess it was a great week for getting back into the swing of things.
but, it was a not so great week for the sewing machine.
I fixed a purse that was coming apart.
I did finish one applique block while waiting for DD.
I started another, but my hands began to complain, so I stopped.
I quilted Lana's Tumbler quilt.
I love it laid out like this. 
I tried to show the close up of the quilting, but I guess the thread blends too good.

I did get to practice my digitizing, but no time to stitch them out.

Other than that, none of the machines were run this week.

This weekend looks no better.
Girl Scouts Saturday and YOSA Sunday.

I plan to load a little at a time and maybe I can get a quilt ready for next week.

Crazy Week

Well, not much got done.
Little bits and pieces were accomplished, but nothing big.
I did make another lanyard.
I am now needing to clean up after lots of paperwork activities.
I would like to come home to a nice area to work.
Leaving tomorrow afternoon for Mo Ranch for a YOSA Band Camp that I'm chaperoning.
No sewing this weekend, unless I get something to work on by hand.
