Let's face it, with vacation and Mom moving, I didn't finish much at all. Before we left in early August I finished 3 veterans quilts and 2 crochet hats. In September I finished a baby blanket for my new Grand Niece. The big accomplishment was Mom and I getting her move done and her apartment all set up. She's settled in and has the sewing room in full operation.
I also got 2 veterans quilts quilted. These tops were donated my a kind blog reader and our veterans will love them!
That's the extent of my finishes and I'm fine with that.
There were a number of starts however! On vacation Laura pieced 2 veterans quilt tops that need to be quilted and I started the blue bow tie quilt. I sewed together 4 placemats from the leftovers of one of the veterans quilts and started a second baby blanket. Back at home I restarted another big blanket and I'll explain that in another post. I also started quilting a guild raffle quilt. But the big project that I'm working on this week is the Paula quilt. We leave Saturday for another (shorter) vacation and I want it done and in the mail before we leave. As of today it's on the longarm, ready for quilting. It would be really cool if I could also get the raffle quilt quilted before we leave too.
I'm not holding my breath.
