    Does everyone have lots of fun projects planned for the weekend? I finished two UFOs during the week and hope to finish 2 more. However, I've misplace the binding strips for one so might not be able to complete that one. :( That's what I get for cleaning my room. I have a few pinwheel blocks to work on as well. And at some point, I would like to do some embroidering. Not sure there's enough time in the weekend but we'll see!

    I hope to get a BOM project done as far the last border on and get it sandwiched! Also, I need to sandwich a turning twenty quilt. If I am really super lucky, and I know I am pushing my luck I hope to start my meandering on one of these! Pretty tall order for someone who plans to be gone Saturday and Sunday day. Also, need to bake some choc chip cookies! Banana Bread. My only hope is staying up to wee hours in the morning, then drag at the wedding shower I need to attend. Having said that, that still is my plans :)

    I'd be asking myself if there was enough time in the month to get it done!!

    Project 1: make 2 fleece tie quilts for charity (kids with cancer).

    Project 2: work on getting my stash sorted out so it will maybe all fit in the motorhome under the bed. DH won't complain if he doesn't see it. Leave out some hand quilting and figure out where to stash 2 sewing machines.

    Project 3: finish cutting out 46 different fabrics for the next row of my row robin. Hope it looks like I picture it, but that would fall under the category of "unbelievable".

    Project 4: package up my Spring FQs and pincushion so they are ready to go out as soon as I get an address since we leave this horrendous snowy State in two weeks. Been here 11 months and can't wait to get out. There is no Spring here. It's still snowing. In GA its T-shirt and capri weather and the cherry blossoms are starting to bloom. Not sure what blooms here, and hope I won't be here to find out.

    Life on the road -- anybody care to join us?

    I hope to get 2 more tops sashed of the cross-stitched quilt blocks my sister did before she passed away. I have enough of the blocks to do 3 full and 1 twin to give to my 2 daughters, twin to her granddaughter, so they can have memories of their aunt and grandmother. The blocks are so pretty.

    I am working on Lizzie. Also, working on a paper-pieced star that is taking me longer than I think it should. Then I will design a bed-runner around it. Maybe sneak in a few hand stitches on my applique' too. I cleaned off my work table today and organized yet once again.

    I have date night tomorrow... first in 5 years.

    I also am putting in new laminate flooring, but my biggest project is to work on hand quilting a crib size blanket for a friend (my first ever) I have given myself the deadline on next weekend to complete about 12 hours of hand quilting (for me) :)

    Wish me luck!! ;)

    I'm about 75% done tying a quilt. The goal is to have it completely tied by the end of the weekend. And maybe, just maybe...add the border. I have to figure out how in the world I cut long strips and what "miter" means first. ;)

    I've saved all the FMQ parts of GS's Thomas Train quilt and have to finish it! Have 2 charity quilts cut ready to piece, waiting patiently while I re-learn all I've forgotten about machine quilting in a 2 yr. time-out while being ill period. Still quilting only half days now, but loving it. Busy is good!
