    For once I had the weekend to do almost what I wanted. Here is what I did, besides dishes, I put away the summer clothes, got out the winter clothes and washed up. While doing that I managed to meander my autumn lap quilt, got the binding made and just have to finish sewing it to the back. Made a small baby quilt, all cute and meander, got the binding made & need to finish sewing, hemmed my dh pants, (four pairs) made another small baby quilt, got it pinned and ready to go. Sandwiched my pinwheel lap quilt, it is sitting on the machine and ready to go. Made 5 burp cloths for charity. I am sure I did more,..cuz I am exhausted!

    What a wonderful weekend. Freedom to do what you want and ability to accomplish it (smile). Exhaustion from such great accomplishments is well earned. Looking forward to the pics. Thank you for sharing and inspiring.

    Well the baby quilts were simple little things, I must admit, it was a wild hair I got while between meandering. I have a habit of stopping and starting something new in the midst of what I am working on. One minute I am meandering, next off to get some coffee from downstairs, throw and another load of laundry in and on the way back, I see some fabric peeking at me, wala! Baby quilts for charity! MY dh asked me tonite, if I got 6-8 quilts done this weekend? Funny man!

    You got a lot done! Sewing binding on a large quilt takes time! I tired and reading what you did makes me more tired :)

    Nothing better than what I call "good tired"...that's when you have a whole lot of things to show for your day's effort. Look forward to seeing your pics.

    You got a huge amount of things done, but when I did something similar last week, I was not worth talking about for the next 3 days!!! lol So, I could have spread out my jobs a bit and felt much better - this old gray mare ain'ta what she useta be! :)

    But, doesn't it feel good to have so much done?
