Yesterday was kind of a chore day. First I had to deal with the weeds on the driveway. It needs treatment at least 3 times a year. Then I decided to sort through a big donation to our quilt club. If you belong to a quilt group I'm sure you are experiencing the same situation where you re the recipient of multiple donations a year from retired quilters. Sadly, it's getting quite frequent for us. Conveniently, we have an annual trash-to-treasure fundraiser in October so this donation was timely. I won't be at that meeting so I wanted to get all the stuff sorted and tagged for the auction. This woman had so many packs of hand sewing needles! She, like me, had lots of stuff. There's a separate pile for the thrift store.
I also got the blocks I sewed on vacation cut and finger pressed. They are ready to start sewing into blocks. I don't know how quickly I'll make progress on that because the Paula fabrics arrive tomorrow and making the sample quilt for her has to be my quilting priority.
This weekend, during football games, I will start 2 new crochet projects. One will be another baby quilt for my new Great Niece and the other will be another of teh big "dude" blankets. This one will be for Chris' best friend.
This afternoon I head to Mom's to help put up her design wall. She will be ready to start sewing again!
