It’s been a super busy week here with vacation ending, doctor and dentist appointments, music shows, a dance comptetition and plays. That seems to be our anthem over here right now. Tomorrow my baby turns 18! I can’t believe how fast that happened. It’s surreal! Happy birthday, Amanda!
In the middle of the craziness I’ve been trying to work on a few projects in small increments because that’s all I can give it right now. So I started laying out the Seaglass half square triangles in the correct order for the blocks. I’m only pinning and sewing ten at a time right now.
All those half square triangles will look like the block on the right. There will be 30 blocks in the quilt.
I’ll continue stitching those together over the next while. I also started the Kiwi pixelated quilt.
I pressed all the fabric then cut enough for just a few blocks because I was so eager to get hand cranking that I didn’t want to spend hours cutting first. I put the pieces I cut into plastic bags labeled by color.
There are so many shades of green in this quilt that it will pay to stay organized. Next I sat at the hand-crank and started stitching! I got one block made at the kitchen table while waiting for dinner to finish cooking.
I have enough fabric cut to do a few more blocks before I’ll have to head back to the cutting table and really get into it.
My Disney pictures arrived from Shutterfly this week so I pulled out my new Creative Memories Fast2Fab album and started taping photos into it and journaling as I go. It took just a few minutes to do about 5 pages! I’m thrilled with these beautiful albums that come with pre-designed pages and page protectors. Not all of my albums are this easy nor will they all be but for a short trip to Disney, this is perfect. I can go back through and add stickers and more embellishments if I feel like it but I’m really enjoying the simplicity of this right now.
Yesterday I tried out Facebook Live on the Quilt Cabana Page. It was a short video to try out the new feature and it was fun! Hopefully this link will work and you can see and hear what I’m working on. I enjoyed doing it and hope to do more in the future both for quilting and scrapping.
Have a wonderful and quilty week!
