    Well...I completed 2 biggies this afternoon...prepping our tax materials so hubby can drop at the cpa office tomorrow and finishing the database of our part of the guest list for our son's upcoming wedding reception. My sewing goals this week...pull out my old serger and see if it still works. If it does, I am going to take a serger class a week from tomorrow evening. I also intend to cut out some projects (that is what I dislike doing the most.). I teach school so my days are already full...this is just what I will try to accomplish in the evenings.

    My goal for this week is to get 3 Quilts for kids cut out and sewn, then come up with some placemats & potholders & Mats for hot casserole dishes for a gift. If I accomplish this, I will feel good.

    Everyone sounds very industrious. I want to finish appliquing my turtle's shell for a wallhanging, cut the batting,backing and make the sandwich. I need to get some patches for a denim shirt for my husband. I want to decide the final fabrics for another small turtle wall hanging. ( can you see a theme, hehehe) . And I need to cut out the diaper bag I want to make for my daughter in law due in May. I guess that is enough for one day. hahaha

    Oh, I like weekly goals rather than yearly - seems more do-able. This week I do need to get my fabric all put away and organized (am working on it!). I have one more Kids Quilt to finish before sending all out to the quilter. I'd love to get that done this week also.

    My goals are simple. I want to finish hand embroidering my 3 butterflies block and do a reverse applique heart block for my sampler quilt.

    This week, I want to:
    1) make the backing on my Turning Twenty quilt, and buy the batting
    2) finish cutting squares for my rag quilt, and start sewing them together
    3) decide on the layout of my stack and whack (I keep rearranging!)
    4) put a border and backing on a lap sized quilt for my 4 year old niece.
    4) try really hard not to spend much $$ in the local quilt shops!

    :)

    Do Not Kill Hubby!!! If you do, next weeks goals will be to find somewhere to hide the evidence, making up a convincing story about his "extended" business trip...etc, etc... all this will leave you no time for the important stuff, you know, QUILTING!

    I have dumped the reverse applique block in favor of a stained glass owl block using the "empty space" technique, since I had already purchased a yard of Black cotton for the sashing on this quilt. So far I've picked out the design and cut out the templates. Now for the color selection. This part seems to be one of my short falls.

    We have a deadline at work and it is pandemonium. I am so tired when I get home that I can't make it to my sewing room. My goal is to make it through the week and still be on speaking terms with everyone at work. Sewing comes back next week.
