Today has been cloudy & cool cold. So I made a big slow pot full of vegetable soup with sausage – you know the kind: Empty the Refrigerator all in one pot! Then I heated the house making some melt-in-your-mouth sweet cornbread.
Well here are this week’s Friday Finds – Better late than never, I guess.
Fat Quarter Shop shares a free pattern – A Tisket, A Tasket. One of the nice features that the Fat Quarter Shop often does is to have a supporting YouTube Video.
Summer is trying to sneak in. Temperatures have been in the 80’s but Winter is still trying to have a say. We’re under a freeze warning and it may get cold tomorrow night.
Today I have a couple of Tips. I admit, I am a list maker. Yes, my daily list starts something like this:
- “Get Up”
- “Get Dressed”
- “Eat Breakfast”
This way I can start the day with several items crossed off and I feel I’m accomplishing something!
This also translates into some ‘virtual’ lists I use when sewing. At a Quilt Retreat I attended earlier this month, I had a number of projects and spent the first day just cutting. Here is what I did to keep my projects organized:
The month started out with our 25th snow event of the Winter (that won’t stop!). As far as snow was concerned, it wasn’t significant – maybe 5 inches – but it began with 12 hours of rain, sleet & winter mix that could have been a lot more snow. Cold temps continued lower than average. And you can guess how the month ended – Yes! More Snow. We had a heavy rain on the 29th and on the 30th it changed to Snow – another 2 inches!!
Quilting For Good – I’m guessing everyone had a bit of “Cabin Fever” as we had a full house. Eighteen ladies spent the day cutting, ironing, piecing, sandwiching, quilting, binding and sewing on labels. You can read all about it on my post here.
These 14 quilts were either brought in or finished, and were added to our Shower Inventory. Continue reading
Sorry. It seems like life has gotten in the way of both blogging & sewing!
Here’s some helpful information I’ve stumbled on while following quilt spots on Facebook or reading Blogs.
