It’s Monday!

Just thought I’d drop by to update on my weekend progress. Nothing terribly exciting, but some progress nonetheless. First up, since the BTN provided us with some spring football (and we all know that football is the best time for hand piecing), La Passacaglia got a little love. I completed the first of three Rosette …

La Passacaglia Progress

I feel good about the progress I made during football watching. I got the wreath attached and all ten stars made. That took until after the end of the game. Which is a good thing because I have not yet cut the diamonds to go between the stars in that wreath. I haven’t even chosen …

Beginning La Passacaglia

As I mentioned earlier, I did not get any hand piecing prepped in time for last week’s Michigan football game. Yes, I did make a lot of progress going through stacks of magazines and dismantling them, but I wasn’t going to be able to work on those when I drove my DH to his meeting …

Labor Day Sew-In Update

I sort of started my Labor Day Sew-In on Thursday night by hand piecing while watching the Michigan – Utah football game. Football is so great for hand piecing because you can look up for the plays and replays, but you can sew while everyone is just talking. During the football game, I got 8 …

Thoughts on Thursday

A Little Progress on Something

I am such a slacker lately! Grr! I need to get back to some productivity here! And some blogging! So to start with here is a short post. Remember back a ways when I changed my rules about completing the 2011 Designer Mystery BOM before even starting the 2012 because I was seduced by fabric? …

Making a Group Quilt, Part 4 – Assembling Block Kits & Distributing Them

I probably mentioned before that very few of the people who work on this quilt are quilters other than for this. Part of the original plan when this fell to us was to involve as many people as possible. We wanted more of the church to feel ownership for the quilts, especially since the person …

Today’s Accomplishments

Well, another day of work. We had staff meeting today, so that took up a bit of my time. And I still had more people to catch up with so… I still didn’t get a whole lot of sewing done. But I did get eight of these done:   Of course, I still have forty …

If I don’t work, I don’t do much blogging. It certainly isn’t that I haven’t been doing quilty things! I am making good progress on the neverending hand quilting project. And I have organized our church’s quilt for the auction next December, including cutting, putting together block kits, making the sample block so that I …
