June 2018 UFO Challenge, OMG and Goals

It’s hard to believe that it is already June! In the breaks between the multiple rain showers and thunderstorms, my DH has been working on the yard, planting flowers & spreading mulch, and generally making the yard look great. The weather this year has been on again/off again, sometimes cold when it should be hot and hot when it should be cold. March winds came in April, and April showers came in May.  This resulted in yardwork schedule being off.  But he did get some tomatoes, peppers & squash planted.

In My Sewing Room

Cleaning is a never ending process!  It seems every time I need something I end up disassembling my space looking for it. I guess I need to get organized, but that will take away from my sewing projects. This weekend the room got disassembled looking for something I need to work on this week.

While at Quilt Retreat last month, I got a quilt top, matching travel pillowcase and some baby wash cloths done for a new grand-nephew.  The quilt is at the LAQ (Long-arm Quilter), so I want to work on the binding & label to be ready when it gets finished.

2018 Quilt Retreat – Final Day

Spring 2018 Quilt Retreat has ended.  Everyone has returned home, and getting back to normal routines – whatever ‘normal’ is!  I returned to some major work which took several days, and still isn’t totally completed.  I’ve been able to spend a little time in my sewing room to get everything back into place.  Attending a quilt retreat requires moving lots of sewing supplies and returning home with more than you took.
