First things first...who knew it was already MONDAY??? I think I need a reminder each week. I didn't do too badly since I was busy being the good little diabetic girl again. Lordy I miss the chocolate!!!!!!!!!! I am missing anything sweet and I don't even have that big of a sweet tooth. I'd rather eat salty Payday bars but the salt is bad for us too so I limit that and the caramel center of goodness....drool, drool. SO anyway I lost 2 pounds this week! Not bad for starting back. Back to sewing stuff.
I joined the Spring to Finish and I definitely have lots to do and lots to finish! I'm busy getting some things finished and pinned so they are ready to hit the quilting Juki when I switch out machines. I hope to have about 5 quilts ready to do.
Here's the latest mini from Jan Patek's Mini Club. A simple Easter wall hanging. I didn't get it finished before Easter, since it came really close, but it will be ready for next year. I changed out the bunny color and I also used a different red border fabric. I didn't like the older dull red and purple dot fabric that came with the kit, so I grabbed a better choice and used some stash in the process.
I also got my next two Gail Pan blocks done. I started to put the fabric around the embroidery but realized I'd need more info before I did that...like is their sashing between the block? SHould all the red be the same and all the green too? or mix them up? I think I'll wait for more info before I do any more borders.
I also got the last of the Four Season blocks embroidered and the fall block all put together so I'm ready to assemble the top and quilt! Hopefully it will be one of the things I get to quilt this weekend after getting it all pinned. Ialso started on the first block of the Baskets quilt from Country Loft!
I swear that Tumbler quilt is still getting done too. I just have to sit down and get the applique done of the second border and then do the little flowers on the sides. Then it will get put together and pinned for quilting. But not today. I've been running from doctor to doctor all day today and I am now pooped! I'm hitting the sofa for a nice nap!
