    Sunday I'm going to go buy fabric to make a binding for a quilt I started in 1992. It was half hand quilted when I started having problems with my neck and arm, and have never been able to finish it. A friend of my moms finished the quilting and I picked it up today. It's the second quilt I ever made but it's in the colors of my old furniture, light blue and mauve. But I will use it.
    Just a few more UFO's to go.

    I'm doing a D9P for a friend retiring in May. I have two friends retiring and need to get an early start to make sure I finish in plenty of time. Sometimes "Life" happens!

    I am working on appliqueing a landscape quilt and going through my stash to gather fabrics to start a Grandmothers flower garden. I also hope to have time to do a bit of FMQ on a "fairy" crib quilt for my newest granddaughter.

    I am making a new quilted jacket. I worked on it all day today. It is a log cabin type of batik. Dark green. Tomorrow I will put it together and bind it. I have ordered some decorative clasps that haven't gotten here yet.

    I have already completed one goal for the weekend-I took Friday off and took my #1 D and grandchildren (8 year old GS and 6 year old GD) to the Dallas quilt show. Had a good laugh as I had asked my GD what color she hoped to see in quilts-her reply orange. I explained that I had not seen many quilts with orange-Well imagine my surprise and her delight when a significant amount of the quilts had orange in them. I cleaned house today (okay only part of it) and have lined up a redwork cross project to do tomorrow.

    I finished piecing an I spy quilt for a little girl who is going to have open heart surgery later this month. I got it spray basted and am ready to begin free motion quilting it. I'm thinking of using a small hearts and flowers design. I need to have it all done by next weekend.

    Finished a paper pieced flower block for a baby quilt. Made 4 pinwheel blocks on my FW machine - first time I have used in since winning it in August. Need to make at least 4 more pinwheels to catch up with the one a day blocks. Will be picking up my lated acquisition Sunday from the Sewing Maching repair store. It is a 1985 Pfaff 1222 machine from my DSIL - she gave to me after my DBRI passed away. He was the one who used it. Has a beautiful cabinet, but it had not been serviced since 1985 and we couldn't get it to move. The on off switch was broken in the on position so we knew the motor ran. Luckily, it just need tobe cleaned and oiled and a new switch. Am saving this one for my DGD, but will use it just to keep it going. Also plan on doing at least one more block for the baby quilt - need 24 in all. Also hope to get started on a second shop hop quilt.

    working all weekend so no time to quilt. I will be taking time over the next couple of days to prepare for the quilt retreat I'm going on next week. Five days of glorious quilting, friends, and food. We have a cook and dishwashers to pamper us. Leave the husbands and kids to fend for themselves. I of course arrange for the dear furry friends. We even have people come in several to give massages. We all know what 14-16 hours of quilting for 5 days will do to the neck, back, and shoulders. Can't hardly wait. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    An hour ago I put the last stitches in the binding of My Aterisks and sewed on the label, all done!! I'm halfway through putting together my patches and pinwheels top and yesterday I started a modified bento box in brilliant citrus colors for my DGD's high school graduation in May. I LOVE to start a new project!! Tomorrow I'll finish putting the patches and pinwheels together and add the borders, ugh, I really don't like putting on the borders. Don't know why, I guess it's kind of boring. I hope I get the top finished up.

    Wow! So many great projects. My week-end involves cutting off salvage and folding fabric arount my 6 inch ruler, folding and placing on shelves. Oh, my, so satisfying. Could the fact that I'm housebound with the flu have some affect on what is satisfying this week-end? I'm really enjoying the color and texture of my fabric. Some of this has never been taken out of the bag from the shop. That is the sign of an addiction. Gigi

    Well, got 8 pinwheels done, but that was all. Our power went out and stayed out for over 3-1/2 hours. Had dinner in the crockpot - didn't get done., so our DD and DSL invited us to dinner. Irish Stew, Irish soda bread (delicious),and salad. When we came home shortly after 7pm the lights were on. Yeah!!!

    I got a TON of work done. I actually almost have my quilting room done!!! I can't believe it! I have all the fabric wrapped (the big and the FQs) and the furniture in place....AGAIN...hopefully this is where it will stay. I even hung a couple of things on the walls. Then I got the big idea to fill some frames I had bought so I started going through pictures....this is NOT a good idea if you have recently lost both parents :( I decided to stop for the night and play on here for awhile :D I am impressed by you guys who are redoing your whole stashes! I've only been doing this since July and it took literally HOURS to get my little stash done! Hopefully I will actually have pictures of my "studio" by the end of the week...I'm SOOOO excited!!
