My sewing week

Monday, July 30th, 2012

It’s Monday and my sewing week is up and running – a little slower than I’d hoped because the teenagers only leave tomorrow, so I’ve had to spend much of today running around and sorting out stuff for them and being the perennial taxi driver, but my head is in sewing mode and in between I’m doing what I can and at the same time dreaming of what four uninterrupted days is going to feel like….whoopeee!!!

The plan is as follows:


No, just joking…


1) Finish the Soda Pop Quilt top and maybe even get it basted and ready to quilt.

2) Finish the Happy Mochi Yum Yum quilt top…again possibly sit in front of the Olympics and get it basted.

3) Finish the cover I started for my sewing machine a million years ago.

4) Make my next Stitch Tease block for Katy

5) Do some test sewing and make some decisions and prepare packs to send out for September for both the EPP bee and the Sew Euro-bee-an bee….(How did I end up having September for both bees?)

If I get anywhere near having that little lot done I’ll be incredibly happy. It probably won’t happen because dealing with the jungle that was my garden is on the agenda too – but I can ration myself to an hour a day on that front and whatever happens I should make some pretty significant inroads into all the projects. Watch out for regular progress reports!

It’s making me feel incredibly happy. Which is what I need right now!

The red velvet cup cakes my daughter is making help the general mood….particularly as it looks like I will be the only one here to eat them šŸ™‚

Please don’t mention the diet!

    I am absolutely LOVING the soda pop quilt! I see this in my future… Like I NEED another project?

  2. Kathy E. Says:

    A quick question… will you sew down the green edges with satin stitch, or blanket stitch, or something? Or will you just plan on the quilting holding that down?

  3. Katy Says:

    Lol, lets hope she’s not hoping to take those cupcakes to munch on the trip šŸ˜‰

    Have fun with all your sewing! I’m going through my ever growing list, and am actually motoring through a few things today, between coughing fits. We’ll just ignore the fact that in the grand scheme of things, the main thing I’m working on has the longest deadline, ‘k? šŸ˜‰

    Red velvet cup cakes? Tell me more. The soda pop quilt looks wondrful. You have a long list and sound so positive. I have a long list and feel dragged down by it. Why is this?

    The soda pop quilt is looking lovely! Good luck with your list. Sounds like it will be a wonderfully satisfying few days. What I want to know is how did you manage to find those days with both kids and husband out of the house? I’ve been trying to do that for years to no avail! Enjoy!
