...it's been a while...
I don't have a lot of photos to show. I haven't done much. Quilting or otherwise.
...so let's see...
...last post was just after my guild's quilt show in late March and I had Michael's quilt top finished...
Michael's quilt is finished. I sewed the label on today and his open house is mid-June. It's too windy to take a photo today (of course it is!), but I quilted it with spiderwebs. Seemed fitting since there's Spiderman in the focus fabric!
I have also completed another top, but it's hush-hush for now. I hope to share soon! (I should be quilting it today, but I decided a nap was a better choice - this is not helping my problem!)
I still have not cut into the fabrics for the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt from last November, but it's on my radar. I have a week off in mid-July plus a long weekend quilt retreat, so perhaps then?
My guild has issued a Paint Chip Challenge. I took the info and paint chip and have a great idea for quilt, but it seems the pattern, available back in 2013 has gone POOF on the internet. I have e-mailed the designer and have my fingers crossed.
The deal: use at least four of these seven colors. The fabrics I choose must have these colors as predominant colors. I can add one FABRIC.
(at least they're good colors!)
It's due in October, so I've got time, but at the rate I've been going lately, I'll have it not-done by NEXT October!
And sadly, I think that about catches you up on quilty stuff!
What I have been doing:
- working (two 11-hour days last week- yikes!)
- baking cheesecakes (the boys at work have found out I can do this and remind me when their birthdays are...some seem to want to have lots of birthdays each year...the hubby is not amused, but I made him one two weeks ago and it's still in the fridge - WHOLE...I won't eat it because it's no-bake (not a cheesecake in my opinion)..bleh!)
(...and this is what happens when you realize AT WORK that one of those guys has a birthday tomorrow and you haven't bought the cream cheese...good thing for a 30 minute drive home plus errands and a warm day...no, not bricks of drugs...bricks of cream cheese!)
- there was a birthday cake in there for my turning-4 niece, too...just cake-cake
(it stole the show at the party)
- a few snarky embroidery projects
(this isn't quite done and photo converted to black-and-white because phone camera doesn't like black)
...another said "bite me" and was given to a coworker who had her last day yesterday...fits her, but if you say it to her, she just might try...
- Kevin joined the quilt guild after his two free visits
(yes, that $$ has Trump on it - we have a board game called Trump that's YEARS old and this came out of that box...I don't care if you support him or not, this is funny)
- wasting time with my "smart" phone
- reading a little
So I think that's caught you up. I'm going to try to take more photos and be better about blogging, but I keep promising and then don't do it, so I guess you'll get what you get!
Now it's time for me to go catch up on all the blogging you've done and I haven't been reading...
