Sunday ...


I like both ideas for Carrie.  I do like the one you posted that Carrie said she likes.  I may need to order a little more grey material but that's no big deal.  That means that I have to spend $50.00 to get free shipping ... darn ... more material ... WOOT WOOT!!!

What are you up to today?  Here's my two options:

I know ... difficult choice!  I have a plan on how I'm going to get through it .... I'm going to mark for 30 minutes and then sew for 30 - 60 mins.  Or if that doesn't work, I'm going to bribe myself and mark 10 tests then quilt 10 line.

The quilt in the picture is the modern baby quilt that I got from Peach Tree in Regina.  I love it and its no easy to do.  I think I'm going to make a few of these ones to give away or sell.  There's a Baby Expo coming up in September and I was thinking about making a bunch of stuff to sell at it.  I'll have to see how much I get done over the summer.  Then again, maybe I'll be to busy making stuff for me instead!! 

Speaking of making stuff for myself, I final got the new pattern that I have been waiting for and some more material to make it!!  I almost started it yesterday but then I stopped myself because I had just started the modern baby quilt.  Thought that I should maybe finish a project before I start another.  Not sure why I thought that yesterday because I've never done that before.  I have a number of UFOs that I really really need to get done.  Maybe that should be my summer plan ... finish UFOs.  Does that include all the projects that I have the material for but haven't started or just the ones that I started?!?!?

Speaking of UFOs ... Chelsea is going to buy the curved pieced on that I made and haven't finished yet.  She wants a bright blue/teal colour on the back.  This is the one that she wants:

Any chance the fabric store in NB has  this fabric?  If they do, I need 5-6 meters of it.  Can you pick it up for me please?!?!  If not, then I keep looking for something online.  I'm sure I will be able to find something and am not too worried about it.

This next week is going to be crazy long.
Monday - dentist appointment in Carlyle and then a doctor appointment back in Estevan
Tusday - SRC meeting and ladies night golf 
Wednesday - set up for dance and Awards night
Thursday - Foam Dance
Friday - Supper at the Olive Branch in Carnduff with some of our staff members
Saturday - Birthday celebration for a friend
Sunday - cleaning, laundry - procrastinate marking and everything else

I'm so ready for final exam week and summer holidays!!

Let me know what you think we should do for Carrie's quilt.  I kind of like the one that she picked out.  I can make a new pattern for it and get some more material ordered!  We could still do it in grey and yellow.

Well I'm off to mark ... enjoy your Sunday!

  1. Hey there,
    I like your idea of rewarding yourself for marking with some quilting time. I think we should make that pattern that Carrie likes. I know you're not upset about having to order some more material. I'll take a look and see if that blue material is in here but I kind of doubt it since you made that a couple of years ago. I'll post more about what I've been up to later but I need to take Andy to work to plan for a sub because he has a lung infection and needs to take some time off work.
