It's a Holiday
The podcast was recorded on May 4th, my BD! Today, I am getting around to writing the post and uploading the podcast.
What I ramble about:
Book finish: Insurgent, by Veronica Roth
Audible: next book "Drums of Autumn", 4th book of the Outlander Series
Wearing multiple hats this week, I have been working longer than normal hours. So, hence not so much quilting this past week. Well this is what I have accomplished this week.
My progress on "Boxy Stars" is coming along. I got this pattern from Bonnie Hunter's (BH) website. It is listed here under the free patterns tab. I am adding the sashing and corner stones. I have even sewn a few completed rows together. My focus this weekend is on completing this top! I am soooo close, it should not difficult to do.
My goal for this weekend is to load my "String Geese" quilt top. I made this top using men's shirts purchased from Goodwill. This pattern can also be found on BH's website. It is made using long strips. A nice, simple no brainer top.
I am continuing to work on my hexies, one more to add to my stack. Just so you know, I haven't had the energy to do any stitching while waiting for the light. Not even to work on them at lunchtime. I have been working through lunch or at a meeting the entire week.
My previous post about the charity quilt that came home with me in February for me to complete....well, I received a phone call thanking me for my participation. I was told that they like to personally thank each person that sends in a quilt. I was also given a website to see where my quilt went. I was a little surprised that I was called
Last but not least, I am continuing to cut my 1 1/2" squares for the swap. I am about halfway there!
I hope everyone enjoys this special weekend, however you may celebrate it!!!
Until next time.........
