I'm making progress on a lot of fronts.
The Quilter's Dream company helped me find a vendor that carried their king size black batting, so that's finally on order.
This cabinet at the end of my pressing station used to be full of beads. I've moved the beads to my button cabinet for now but they are probably on their way to my sister-in-law. She has a group that makes jewelry for a fundraiser for her local library so I think the beads are going there. I bought them years ago when I was experimenting with using beads on quilts. I lost interest in that pretty quickly. I'm keeping the small beads (top shelf on the right). The other bin has all of my hot fix crystals. I use those a lot on postcards. Now I had space to bring my Masterpiece thread upstairs. I've stopped using it for longarm quilting and now use it for piecing so it's closer to my piecing machine. I cleaned out another cabinet this size of fiber art stuff. That cabinet will house my crochet stuff.
But I can't clean all day.
I'm slowly working on the penguins. These beaks took a surprising long time. They are very fiddly and I would have done much better if I had made some foundation papers. They are cute though and worth all the effort.
There's a new baby blanket underway. This is the same yarn that I used on my first one. It's Lion Brand Mandala Sparkle. I had one ball left from my first one so I bought 2 more balls to make another blanket. I don't want lots of little balls of yarn hanging around. This blanket will be as big as 3 balls of yarn will allow. I've never been a big fan of the Granny Square but I like this approach of making one giant one. I know why people love them, they go very fast!
I'm also working on the scrappy coasters and more cleaning. I hope it's going to be a productive week.
