Hives and quilts
Monday, March 18, 2019
So last week I blogged about all the quilts I need to work on. Here is a list:
Other quilts I am working on:
1) A mystery quilt that started October, 2018. The final clue came out March 1 and I got the clue March 2. I have 3 more small seams to finish the rows and then 5 seams to finish attaching the rows to finish the top plus 2 sets of borders. Goal to finish before the end of the month so Doug can quilt it in time for Saturday sampler on April 6. Maybe even be done long before that. ALL DONE MINUS 2 LAST OUTSIDE BORDERS, BEING DONE TONIGHT.
2) Un-be-weave-able. This was a workshop given February 10, 2019. It has 13 rows plus the border. I have 7 rows done. I HAVE THE COMPONENTS DONE FOR ROW 8 AND 9, AND ROWS 10-13, HALF MADE. MIGHT GETTING IT DONE WITHIN A WEEK?
3) Soup Cozies, 7 to be made. Enough batting for 6. This was a Chanukah present for the kids from 2 yrs ago. Time to get them done. FINISHED 1. WILL WORK ON THEM ON THURSDAYS.
4) PJs. This was this year's Chanukah presents. WILL ORDER FABRIC BUT WILL MAKE DURING SUMMER.
5) Tuffets. Kids asked to make this for them for Chanukah 3 yrs ago but they couldn't agree on round or square tuffets. We were finally able to buy 2 round and 1 square. Fabric bought for 2 of them. WILL PUT FABRIC WITH TUFFETS AND PUT IN THE GARAGE TO BE LATER.
6) Judy Niemeyer, diamond wedding ring. The quilt center is done but it has a LOT of applique pieces to trace, cut and sew. And I am trying a new technique. WILL WORK ON TRACING WHEN I HAVE TIME AT WORK OR MINI GROUP ONLY.
7) Block of the Month, 2018. The top is done but again there is applique to be sewn down. The applique, ~140 pieces are cut but need to be placed and stitched down. MAY LOOK INTO STARTING TO IRON PIECES TOGETHER.
8) Block of the Month, 2019. I am currently caught up on this and got a new block monthly, the first Saturday of each month. NEXT CLASS APRIL 6. NOTHING TO DO UNTIL CLASS.
9) Block of the Month, 2017 from a different store. This was a pattern Doug and I were going to do together. He didn't keep up and now has decided he doesn't like it so even less motivation to finish it. THIS WILL BE PUT ON THE BACK BURNER UNTIL DAVID'S QUILT IS DONE.
10) Another Block of the Month, 2017, Jaybirds, Sweet tooth. Again, Doug and I were going to split the work. Quilt 9 and 10 were done to be shared as we don't need 2 of every quilt we make. There were initially 24 blocks and I did my 12 at that time. At that time though, Doug did 1. Well, the 24 blocks make a twin side quilt. We decided we wanted a queen sized quilt. So we bought extra fabric to make 14 more blocks. But since Doug had only made 1 block, those 14 landed on me. I have made 3 of those 14. DOUG STARTED TO WORK ON THIS AND I WILL TAKE A BREAK UNTIL AFTER DAVID'S QUILT IS DONE. MAYBE DOUG WILL ENDED UP ACTUALLY MAKING SOME OF THESE "EXTRA" BLOCKS.
And now 11) Is David's quilt. WAS TOLD THAT IT IS A QUICK, EASY QUILT. I HOPE TO START IT NEXT WEEK AFTER QUILT # 2 ABOVE IS DONE.
12) Will be starting new Judy Neimeyer on April 6th. Pattern is being mailed to me. If life gets too overwhelming, it will be put away and I will wait to take classes.
So although today is a Monday and Mondays often set off panic attacks for me, today seems to be starting out as a good day! I have had 4 shots of Ozempic and haven't taken Nesina since Feb 25, so 3 weeks. My hives aren't visible today. I have mild itching but very tolerable.
Someone suggested that with all the projects, maybe I schedule certain days to work on specific quilts. And that might work for me. I already have work on soup cozies only on Thursdays. And in 2 weeks, I have a 3 day weekend and hope to get lots of quilting done. But I am happy I quilted on International quilt day this past Saturday.
This past weekend I also posted 2 other blogs and other than walking, did everything else on the list!
