    I just finished a baby quilt. I want to start cutting my red, white, and blue fabrics to make a star quilt. The fabric was on sale at Hancocks this week.

    I have been out of school for 2 weeks and have been working very hard cleaning both inside and outside the house. I also have helped out some 4hers on their sewing projects. We will be on vacation next week and when I return I will get busy on some quilting projects. You know how it is...once you have been on vacation, you don't want to do any more housecleaning so that is why I have been working so hard to clean the past 2 weeks. Whew! Now I am ready for some fun. I go back to school at the end of July so summer is short, anyway.

    Putting the two color binding on a b day quilt for my daughter. My quilting machine has an electrical problem, so I'm using a back up. I don't have a short shank SITD foot - just slant needle so I will have to be very careful.

    My sister's beautiful little girl turns 1 year old next week so I spent the week sewing little girl outfits for her birthday. Unfortunately, I was in such a rush to get them in the mail this morning that I forgot to take pictures...oops. Now back to the Hunter's Star I've been working on since seeing Roolen's quilt & tutorial. On the bus ride to work this morning I had time to tear out the blocks I put together backwards... Now I shall reassemble them correctly

    What are you working on?
    Since you asked... one graduation party (for a co-worker's son). I did cut squares for one charity quilt. Other than that... endless weeding. We had four days of rain and it did wonders for all the weed seedlings. :-( Not to mention the slugs and snails.

    Gee... d'ya suppose 20 snails per square foot is excessive?

    Or maybe attending graduation parties, and not sewing at all?

    got to do some sewing for my 10 month old granddaughter and some for my almost great granddaughter, too.

    Then//???????????? Oh, a couple summer dresses for me. After that I think a personal sized quilt for the GD of a friend. Kiddo has had more medical problems in her 18 years than I'll ever have.

    I am trying to finish a quilt for my nephew, (Lately known as the quilt from Hell LOL) it is a Navaho Rose I was worried about the points, not a problem, the blocks whent together very easy but things have gone down hill from there I think I have done more ripping than sewing! LOL finally got it on my LA yesterday and of course after working for 45 min everything started falling apart again, tensin great but thread kept breaking spent 2 hours changing needle, cleaning rethreading, you name it I tryed it finally gave up and shut the door on it. went back today and everything worked great ( have no Idea why, or what changed overnight) worked about 40 min, ran out if bobbin thread, and discovered the tension was off! LOL so now have to rip out the last 35 min of work!! Did I mention this is black thread on a black background? So will try again tomarrow Some day this quilt will be done and I can take a deep breath and enjoy sewing again!!LOL I hope!

    have to bind a quilt that MIL pieced and wife quilted. Also have 21 bow ties to make for FIL, Son and Nephew
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    It's supposed to be HOT & HUMID all weekend (I heard this week that WI is getting hotter by the year --- I could've told the scientists that... LOL!) so I plan to stay inside under the AC (& ceiling fans on high!) & sew. I've been working on a Jelly Roll Race & I would really like to get the silly thing done. It's wider than I want so I think I'll whack a couple of inches off the body & replace the innner borders with narrower ones. Then, add the outer border, find something for the back, make the binding (I like do make my bidning while I've got all the stuff out for the quilt) & send that puppy off to the LA'er! After that? Maybe work on cleaning up in my sewing room.

    I'm going to be sitting in my wheelchair and enjoying your post. I had my right knee repaired two months ago and three weeks ago my left knee went out. The weakened right knee will not support my weight using crutches, hence the wheelchair. I am frustrated because I have a great project going and lots of new fabric and my husband insists I not sew until I can walk. So keep posting those pictures, I truly enjoy them.

    I'm hoping to finish my Carpenter's Star top for my son - just the binding left to do. And then I will let myself start my new project - a french braid table runner and placemats.

    Re-working my quilting room. It is a mess and I don't know how much of what I have got. This time I am labeling and putting precuts in containers that they fit well in. My kits will be labeled and easily seen and my yardage will be folded so I can see what I have. Too much is what I have, MSQC has kept me in precuts and I love then but I sure have a lot. I should be excited that there is so much to work with but right now I am just overwhelmed. When it's organized I'm going to have a blast with so many choices.
