Are you quilting this weekend? US Memorial Day

lindaoh_gwMay 28, 2011

I made another twister quilt today. It's a small wreath, wall hanging size. Thank you new2quilting! I just had to try it after I saw your link yesterday.

Anyone else quilting this weekend?

Hi, Linda - I'm making miniature tops for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. Last weekend I made the first 4 blocks of Nancy Rink's Civil War BOM and it had a squillion stitch & flip flying geese and square-in-a-square pieces. I sewed the corners into HSTs as I was going, so yesterday I made 4 little tops from those HSTs, and I still have enough for 2 or 3 more. I also have a bunch of blue & yellow HSTs from a previous project. I'm going to work with those today.

DH may be putting up track lighting in my sewing room this weekend, too, so I'll probably help with that. And I may help with the yard work if he wants me to. He's been under the weather for a couple of weeks.

Yes I am! A friend stopped by as she was visiting "local artists in the area" (ya gotta love that one!) requesting donations for an auction to save their stained-glass window.
She isn't sure if it's in June or July. I'm not only working again but I'm on a deadline! WOW it feels good to rejoin the living!! Everything seems so new and exciting this spring...I just don't know which way to run first!!LOL!
I hope we're all having a great weekend

I just completed and sent off to Texas a quilt for my greatgranddaughter. Today I think I will relax. Since I got up this morning I ran,I mean run and still didn't make it to bathroom. I sure hope I don't have the flu. I woke up once during the nite and thought I was going to throw up.
I have my moon over the mountain cut out so will start it next week. Have a safe holiday

I have several UFOs that I am working on. I switch from one to another depending on my mood - must be why they are still UFOs! LOL
I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

I made a bunch of half square triangles this morning, but then joined DH in watching Indy 500. This is the only sporting event DH EVER watches, so it's a yearly event with home made pizza and a boutique beer of his choice.

The pizza was yummy! I think I need a nap, LOL - we rarely eat that heavily for lunch.

I seem to do better if I don't plan on doing any sewing!!

Today I've gotten 2 skirts done for DD(3yo), 1 skirt done for DD(9yo), elastic finished in 2 pairs of pj pants for DS(6yo), and binding cut and pressed for the 2nd raffle quilt I've been doing. [Once I get it sewn on, hopefully tomorrow, someone else will stitch it down! yea!]

Have a nightshirt for DD(9) still to do...been knocking things out!

Also planted some flowers & tomatoes today and some bean seeds...Still a few more plants to go after another trip to the store.

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!
