something else finished
don't faint, but I finally sat down and did my blocks for project improv! With the Fab challenge mailed off and the reveal enjoyed-it was on to the next thing. These blocks are being mailed tomorrow and that completes everything I "owed" others in the quilting projects department.
I am almost half done with the hand stitching of the kingsize sleeve on my show quilt. I am turning it in Wednesday night and feel confident I won't be stitching Wednesday morning - another few nights of tv watching and sewing should do it.
I have quilts to put labels on and take photos of and then ship off to headquarters for Wraptheminlove. As these quilts are an always on-going commitment I do not treat them as deadline driven. It is always great to send them on their way-but there is absolutely zero stress as they hang around waiting.
I will be returning to my word house project- the last class of Tonya's that has been sidelined far too long. Also, I have nothing to hand quilt and may have to whip up another free pieced scrappy little something until the house top is a top.
The last guild quilt show I am involved with on a working level is this coming Saturday the 18th.
Once all the paperwork is wrapped up and handed over to both guilds I belong to - I am done with my guild positions and can really relax.
The rest of the year my focus will be on personal plans.
Spring is slowly but steadily making itself visible-so gardening will be taking some of my time-I so love planting future color to enjoy. I am going to do some playing with decorative rock again and expand on some garden design work started a year ago. That is the outside stuff.
The inside stuff will be to finish clearing the fabric room-it's at the half way mark right now. Then, I can start looking seriously for the bed I have in mind to put in there. My sister arrives in 41 days-and that makes a natural deadline for having that room ready. Plus, Alice can't spend the night either until I find that bed-another good motivation. She has outgrown the porta crib and it's time for a real bed for that 2.8 year old!
Speaking of Alice, she and her daddy came over for an indoor Easter Egg hunt. Oh the fun we all had "helping" her. I think we had to re-hide about 4 or 5 times it was so delightful. I will leave you will a photo(s) of her joy.
