Not much to show for it
I had an incredibly busy weekend but I don't feel like I have much to show for it. I got 2 more truckloads of mulch spread. I think I have about 5 left to go. But it's really killing my hands and wrists. They were already inflamed from doing too much crochet and playing games on the phone. They are getting better but raking tons of much is slowing down the healing process.
Ugh, the adventures of getting old!
Friday and Saturday were sewing days with my quilt club. I'll admit that I did a lot more talking than sewing this time. But I did do SOME sewing. I got all the green blocks made for my college roommate's quilt. This think is going to be a huge king size quilt. I'm pausing this one to work on at home where I can find a space to spread out the blocks. Organizing the blocks by the value of the green is going to be really important so I'll take the time to lay it all out.
Instead of continuing on with the green quilt I pulled out one of the many veterans quilt kits that I cut out. I'm going to like this one a lot!
I also got started on 2 more veterans quilts so I should have those to share by Wednesday with maybe 2 more. This week my goal include finishing up my serger projects so I can put all that mess away. I also want to get some more things cut out so I clear off the disaster that is my cutting table. It's time for a clean up!

The big green quilt is going to be so pretty. I think it will look so inviting on a bed.

You sure spread a lot of mulch! I get 5 yards ( 45 cubic feet) every other year or two and that's enough work for me! I can't imagine truckload after truckload! I bet it was nice seeing all your quilting friends. When my friend came up on the first, there was a lot of talking/socializing going on too!

Those green blocks are going to make a spectacular quilt I think. And getting 'vintage' isn't all it's cracked up to be, that's for sure.
