Sew much to do…

on January 10, 2017

Spent the weekend in Dallas and had a wonderful visit with family.  I am really lucky to have married into a family that I love and that loves me.  It was mentioned that I have known them for 39 years!  I’ve watched Don’s younger siblings become beautiful people.  Not much sewing, but I did get the binding put on Pa-Tune-ya!  Picture is posted on Instagram.  It also snowed on Friday.  I love snow.  My puppy and I took a walk in the snow.  We both enjoyed the walk.  A pic of him with snow is also on the above link.

So Pa-Tune-ya is in the DONE pile, what’s next?  Three Sisters is up next.  I am taking it to Quilt Your Own to long arm quilt it.  A pic of the top is also on the Instagram link.  This morning I sketched out quilting plan.

Weave thru the Friendship stars and meander to make quilted stars and echo around them.

It looks a little squashed, but with the long arm and the size of my friendship stars, I think it will be nice.  Now, what to do in the border….any ideas?  I could quilt falling stars mimicking the reverse appliqué stars, but my free hand with 4 pointed stars is terrible!

I also need to get the homestead exemption forms out to clients for the real estate agents I work with.  Almost have one agent done.  Then there are errands to run, gotta get some batting.  Then the guild website needs updating, and I should probably start posting about our speakers in January.

I would love to get back to de-cluttering.  I have a mountain in my family room that is just screaming DE-CLUTTER me next!  Oh and then we cannot forget TAXES.  Would love to have them done by Feb. 1, problem with that is no one gets their docs to us by Jan. 31…argh!…

God Bless!

    Good job. Take pride in your accomplishments. Then you can focus on next item on your list.
    If you know you don’t get all tax info by Jan 31st, don’t make Feb 1 your deadline – it sets you up for fellings of failure. Make Feb 15 your deadline, meanwhile gathering all other info.

      Thnx! great advice. I was thinking that if I got it done by Feb 15 that would be good, since last couple of years it has been handed over to our CPA Mar 1. I am proud of Pa-Tune-ya, my own little foray into art quilting. 🙂
