Debra sent me a box of patriotic fabrics & miscellaneous blocks for making Quilts of Valor. Many possibilities here.
This is Dexter. When he crosses one paw over the other like that, I just crack up.
I'm meeting my goals of moving the UFOs along, even though they are not completely complete. That will be when they are quilted and bound; however, they're not languishing, I've pulled them out and I'm putting them together.
I will be more thoughtful about a few of them, like the appliqued Baltimore-style basket blocks I did a while back. But these are moving right along.
I feel like it's been a fairly productive week. I could have done more, but most of my sewing is done on the weekends. I'm just too worn out after working all day, usually. I prefer knitting or embroidery in the evenings. However, this past Sunday I helped my sister in law do some downsizing. They are doing some work on their house in anticipation of selling (one day). SIL's mother is a long timecollector of all things, including every piece of paper she's ever laid a hand on ;-), beanie babies (about 200), coins, stamps (thousands, all unorganized and in boxes and envelopes). SIL desperately needed help going through all this stuff and deciding what to keep and what to pitch. Her mother is 92 years old and had a fall about a week ago. She seems to be okay, but will be needing some in-house care. SIL felt her room needed a makeover before that happens so I was glad to lend a hand. Still, it took all day and we did not finish, so it cut into my sewing time on Sunday.
Hope you are having a creative and productive week, and thanks to Debra for her generous fabric donations
