Last week I did have some successes with my sewing. I completely finished a UFO project finally.
I have also finished the two quilts I posted about for the orphanage. Still need to hand tie the knots in corners of blocks, but will be working on those tonight while I watch "The Bible" a new docudrama on the History channel debuting this evening. Some viewing I choose...The Bible, then season premier of Amish Mafia. I know that AM is a really stupid show and just don't believe that it is any where close to actual representation of Amish life. Just don't believe that any Amish peoples would behave in such a way, nor would they be able to so freely move back and forth between their life and that of the English. Right up there with Breaking Amish. I do love the Amish style quilts, and enjoy seeing a truthful depiction of their lifestyle. The simplicity of their life reminds me of the 30's. At any rate, that is what is planned for this evening.
I was able to also get two crib size quilts basted for quilting, both UFO projects. They will be donated to the church. Another throw size has been quilted as well. Once I get bindings completed on these three they will be off of my UFO list as well. Then, I will be able to justify starting a new project.
So, on the list to finish this week, besides those I listed, are a Crazy Quilt embellished block for a round robin I am in, three more of the church quilts. I have a color challenge I am involved with through a local quilt store, finally have decided on a pattern to make for the challenge, so that will be next. That quilt will be for me, personally, as I am using some of my grandmother's handkerchiefs in it, along with some hand embroidery work. Have some applique projects to start, just trying to find just the right fabric for back grounds.
That is about all for now. Will post a little more tomorrow with a couple of book reviews and my shopping trip. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon. I am off to find a snack and get ready for my shows. Yes, I know, such an interesting life I lead.
