I have been able to get things pretty much caught up this week. I am ready on Wednesday to turn over the guild treasurer's job to the new elected treasurer. Plus husband and I are planning to leave for a 11 day vacation on a Mississippi Riverboat trip as well. I am thinking a well deserved get away. House and dog sitters all arranged and we are ready to go.
I have been cutting out blossoms for my Alex Anderson neutral quilt project. There are 240 of these little guys so I trace, fuse and cut out a few every evening. I have 2 on so far of 21 that will be on three of the panels between the four pieces rows. Not very happy with the first one as the white petal doesn't show very well, but have decided it is too complicated to un-sew and un-fuse it. Will have to see if I can live with it as I move along adding the rest of them. Once the whole quilt is finished and quilted it probably will not even bother me. Well I hope so!
I got the first of two May BOM blocks completed on the Garden Party Down Under project. My goal this week is to get the second one done before we leave on our trip.
It is now sewn on to the row with its other two block. This project I am really pleased with. So hopefully this week I can finish up the second block and get it sewn onto its other two blocks for the second row completion.
My youngest daughter, the one with all the chickens, ducks, and peacocks has the perfect morning coffee companion. She said they sit out on the patio every morning and have a quiet conversation. Nice to have a friend to talk to.
