*Finish hand quilting my sister's quilt by April 6th.
My table next to my spot on the couch is always ready for me with my thread, scissors, thimble and a cup of coffee!!!! I am getting a lot done daily.
*Finish piecing the Hidden Star by April 6th. Have it basted and in the hoop by April 8th and finish hand quilting it by mid June. *Cut, machine piece, baste and have in the hoop, the Christmas gift quilt, by September 1st. Have it hand quilted by Christmas. I will be doing the 58x74 size.
Those first 2 are the most pressing. I have plenty of time to get the other done. I am also going to play. During the summer I plan to finish putting the flowers and leaves on the Underground Railroad border, and get that basted and ready to quilt. And there is always the pink and brown....*heavy sigh*. I also want to do a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt in 1 inch hexagons using the feedsack line Cheryl sent me. I am new to hexagons so I need to practice first, right?
I think it will make a really pretty, scrappy, table runner. The squares will all be the same fabric. Since I am so new to hexagons and I hear they can be quite addictive, I joined in on The Great Hexagon Quilt-Along!Along with 97 other hexagoners (hows that for a made up word, Rose Marie) I will share my process on my hexagon creations! Pop over there....they have some gorgeous quilts!! Thanks Cheryl and Dani....picking out that fabric for me was just the kick I needed to get going on a technique I have always wanted to try. Someday I will also finish up my Grandma's GFG blocks.
There are enough there for a bed quilt. Not English Paper Pieced, but hand pieced. That will be a challenge!....someday.
TJ went from story time with Uncle Kyle, to video game watching with Uncle Zach!
Charlotte had went to the Cirque du Soleil with our neighbors. She has had her second crochet lesson and learned a 1/2 double crochet. She and Rachel are both making lap blankets to donate to the elderly at a retirement village. I am proud of both of them for donating their time and effort. Charlotte is making hers red....
Zach has been working in "The Man Room" with his dad. They finished painting the walls yesterday. Just the carpet, doors, and trim to do.
The library at church is coming along. Maybe another week or two and it will be done. I am excited to see it finished. What a beautiful library it will be. I will be sure to take pictures when it is complete.
Have a blessed and productive day!!! Remember to ask God what you can do for Him today!
