Prairie Moon

Prairie Moon challenge is

Deal with the paper clutter
So, I've done really well with the other challenges.
I think I brought this on myself by saying I need to handle the paper clutter.
It is embarrassing to show this photo.
the pile to the left of the chair is my Mom's stuff that I need to figure out how to handle.
The pile in the front is band booster things.
The beige basket is all the leftover envelopes I need to toss or put away.
The desk is a never ending pile of mess.
The blue bag doesn't really have much in it. 
I went through things and they got put there and now I don't know what I wanted to do with them.
So, I don't know if I'll be able to take care of ALL of it, but something is better than nothing, I think.  LOL

15 MInute spiff up

The task for the 15 minute spiff up for this week is 

Time to organize and straighten up your books.  
This is what my book shelf still looks like.
I'm sure I have other books around the house.
So maybe I'll see if anything needs to come into the studio.
I need to be more awake to climb, so this will happen tomorrow.

Little progress

I'm still quilting the T-shirt quilt.
Swirls take time.

Next is the Wilder T shirt quilt.
I have all the pieces sewn.
Now to get it all together.
This will not be quilted this month.
I finally cut some of the super hero panel apart.
I know what I want to do, but I'm not sure how I'm going to do it yet.
These are the 6 different characters.
All the others are repeats.
I think I have to put a border around them and then square them up.
They are slightly off square.
The first step is taken.

Prayers, please.  My Mom is back in the hospital.

T-shirt quilt loaded and started

So, the only pattern to quilt was my favorite - swirls.
I chose the white because of all the colors of the T-shirts and it matches the white swirls in the fabric.
I feel good that it is started, but it does take time because swirls are dense.
I also have to think when going over the t-shirts.
I take breaks and read email and work on other quilts when I run out of bobbin thread.

Two UFO bindings done.

Finished pineapple blossom's binding.
Washed it.
It is ready to go to the new owner. 
My Lovely year of finishes quilt is bound.

I need to put it through a wash and it will be ready for Christmas or a gift.
It feels good to complete something else.

Christmas Quilt is quilted

The Christmas quilt is quilted.
I have enough leftover red binding to bind the quilt.
DD has an hour lesson tomorrow, so I should make a dent in it then.

Design Wall Monday

My T-shirt quilt is the only thing on my design wall right now.
Guess I worked through everything else.
Will need to work on the super hero quilt today
