..... I wonder about me!

So today I reserved and made the payment on a table space at the craft fair at work.

I figure between the three people who live here who do crafts that we can come up with enough stuff in the next two and a half months to sell at a craft fair.  Right?

If nothing else maybe it will motivate my daughter to start selling some of her bracelets.

I will get a few things done (after I finish the Memory Quilt) to sell also and hubby is a pretty crafty guy too so I'm sure he can make some stuff to sell.

Should be fun!  If nothing else it will be a family activity and get the kiddo out of the house.

In other news, no sewing happening around here.  Tomorrow is another day though.... even though I have to work a 10 hour day at work.  We'll see if my brain can take sewing when I get home.

Midmonth Check In

A week of vacation really cut into my plans, and today at work they sent the usual "overtime!!!" email, so that's gonna cut into sew time as well.

On the memory quilt, I need to piece 3 of the 8 blocks I still needed, then I need to embroider all 8, join them to the quilt body and then do the border/borders.  In my mind it is one very cool border about 12 inches wide.

I still have one paper pieced Stash Bee block to do.  Likely that will happen this evening, or at least part of it will.

I have 2 non-quilty finishes to report.  A prototype "utili"kilt.  By prototype I mean first one that is good for around the house wear.  No belt loops or pockets.  A learning kilt if you will.  He likes it well enough to wear it around the house and in the yard and such.  It is Khaki and I have enough fabric to make another one still.  And I made a black one which he wore almost all day yesterday, yes, to town when we went grocery shopping and everything!  I think it turned out really good and he loves it!

If I can manage to get enough accomplished through the week when I get home from work then I'll make the other Khaki one on Saturday, if not then he'll have to wait another week for it since I have to get the memory quilt done by the end of the month, or die trying!!

Vaycay, Day 2

Yesterday was the first official day of Vacation.  I spent the first part of the day getting started on my Stash Bee blocks.  3/4 of one done.  Even though the paper piecing is super easy, it is still paper piecing which means I am struggling. The blocks are going to be awesome though.  I'm making 2.

Then yesterday afternoon we ran around, dropping fliers for my hubby's new project at the music store. South Sound Acoustic Instrument Jam and Sing Alongs.  He also made some fliers for his coworkers upcoming Baby Shower so we had to drop those off. Then we had to go buy a ton of food so the two kidlings (they are 23 and 21 and one of them drives and has a car, but I'm Mom so... you know) wouldn't starve while we are gone.

A Bit Done

I am working a lot of overtime again this week.  Thank goodness I'm on vacation next week.  I'm tired!

I got fabric pulled for the Stash Bee block I have to make using a picture of the art that our Queen posted to pick the colors.

I got a couple of crazy quilt blocks made also.  So a bit of progress.  We'll see if I can get more accomplished tomorrow.
