Random Monday Musings
I have been doing a little of this and a little of that......our Getaway in February will be here before you know it, a month from today! I need to have lots of things ready as I am not good at figuring things out in the chaos that is a lot of fun.
These are cut out for the Dylan quilt, this is a good quilt to work on while talking, eating, and shopping.
I have the red and white quilt almost all cut out, again a good one to just sit and sew without a lot of thinking to do.
This is what the block looks like. I am enjoying conquering my fear of curves!
I am working on some hand applique block for the class I might teach. The polka dot is not the background...
I am also cleaning out kitchen cabinets. My goal is 2 a day. It makes it much less daunting! Don't you love my colorful Pyrex?
I have found a new quilting blogger friend, Amy from Amy Made That. She is having a Skinny Pincushion Swap.
If you have never done a swap this is the perfect one to get your feet wet.
It is simple and easy, the directions to make one and to participate are on her blog. I don't think you even have to have a blog. So go check it out and give it a try (Lynne and Elaine you know you want to do this.....).
How cute is it and what a perfect pincushion to use at your machine. I am anxious to see what my partner likes and get creative.
Ok now for a total brag....today I deadlifted 5,003 lbs! Now not all at once.... My highest weight was 135lbs. It really does make me feel good. My trainer who weighs about 125lbs can deadlift 225lbs! I have a ways to go.....
