Monday Goals

Monday, October 19, 2009
Time to set goals. This week I will try to--

  1. Finish sewing together b/w bricks and stepping stones
  2. Preview and sew 9 patches and sashings
  3. Finish my D9P pastel baby blocks
  4. Load the pink baby quilt on the long arm
  5. Sew another set of strips on Sonja's Windows

Whew--that's a list. I will just pick one up and sew on it as time allows. I know I will not get them all worked on.

Had a lovely couple of days with Laura Beth and Mason. A few pictures--

Cuddling with Grandpa


Oh oh, discovering Grandpa's moustache


Grandpa decides to open his eyes and keep an eye on Mason!


Eating out, Mason playing with his favorite toy, a straw!

I sew inbetween loads of laundry, while timing something baking, you know those spare moments you have once in a while!

9 patches pressed with sashings, waiting for preview on wall


About 1/3 of the b/w bricks and stepping stones rows sewn together


Sonja's Windows pressed and waiting for another set of strips


Pastel baby D9P's almost all together

I hadn't planned on trying some D9P's so small, but I was asked to make an incubator cover for NICU unit, (I do this for a friend every year) and after reading on Helen's blog I made these. Helen, you're right, anything smaller than 3" is too "fiddly". Helen has a great tutorial on D9P's, it's my favorite. (mine were 3", and that is small enough!)
