We got my brother and SIL moved into their beautiful new home Tuesday, my tea towel project is about to wrap up and after one more trip to my brother's Friday I believe that I will have the weekend to myself!
I didn't keep track of the tea towels proceeds (I collected checks in 2 batches and some checks were mailed directly to the charity) but I think the final total was about $1000. I'm really happy with that. I had about 20 towels left over and I gave them to a friend who works with another food bank and she will probably get a few hundred more for her pantry. All-in-all, I'm really happy.
I've had a few minutes here and there to sew on this double 4-patch veterans quilt. I'm assembling it in rows and I got this far and realized that I had completely miscalculated the number of 4-patch blocks that I needed. I was short 36!
I already had a stack of 2 1/2 print squares and only had to cut some black squares and I was back in business.
Last night I was back to putting rows together. I might be able to get this together by tonight if my clay shooting lesson and errands don't take too long. I haven't been able to practice shooting since covid started and I'm anxious to get back out to the practice field. Hopefully the time away will not have set me back too far. Virginia is officially moving into phase 2 Friday, although with the allowed protests it seems to me that, for all practical purposes, we've already tossed the covid restrictions aside. I hope that means that my quilt club will get back together soon!
