I seem to be in the habit of posting on Wednesdays the last few weeks. At first it bothered me that I wasn’t getting at least a second post in each week but now I’m kind of enjoying the weekly Wednesday update. I think for the summer, I’ll continue that trend as it makes life easier with 3 kids home all day. I do have hopes of getting a podcast in soon too…
This week I’m working on the project for Quilter’s World. That is my priority for each morning until it’s finished. The deadline is the day we leave for Hawaii so I want to finish that up very soon.
I mentioned in the last post that I was on the hunt for a hand crank Singer toy model. I originally wanted the Singer Model 20 but then I found a beautiful Singer Model 40. I wanted a small hand crank to use out at the pool and also possibly to take on the trip. I found this gorgeous one on Etsy and it is due here tomorrow!
It has the original box and case. I can’t wait to play with it! Last night I started cutting up scraps into 2″ squares so I can make a postage stamp quilt of some kind with the machine. I started cutting at 9pm.
I got aggravated and remembered why I hate using scraps by 11pm. LOL! Oh my…I kept thinking, ‘doesn’t someone sell these all ready cut?’
I will press on…just not tonight.
Over the weekend I painted the girls’ bathroom. It was white with a red, white and blue lighthouse theme. Now it is aqua (Ben Moore Forget Me Not) with navy and white accessories.
I am waiting on two new white framed mirrors to arrive to finish the project off.
Tonight I busted out the ukulele again…Linda Hicks, if you’re reading this, I know you are smiling! Linda is the one I caught the ukuklele bug from originally. I reacquainted myself with some notes an chords and worked up to playing Ode To Joy and Love Me Tender. Maybe you’ll hear me struggle through it on the next podcast!!
These beauties have been making me smile in the garden all week. They are so full of color.
Gretchen over at 120 Blocks posted about making her dream list of what she wants to accomplish in her quilty life. I loved reading her list and feel a bit inspired to make my own and share it. I’ll work on that for next week.
What are your quilty goals?
