This week is so very busy!!

I spent Sunday working on getting ready for Monday & Tuesday!

Monday is quilt guild.  But we have 2 all-day workshops (I will be the first one there to unlock the doors) so I got my fabrics all chosen & precut on Sunday.  Then packed up my sewing machine and tools.

On these workshops days we take our own sack lunch so I grilled extra chicken at  Sunday lunch for me on Monday.

Plus I have a meal for the crock pot to share for the potluck supper.

Then I have my president’s stuff for the meeting and wrote out the agenda on Sunday too.

I also have the VP’s stuff that I forgot to take in August when she wasn’t there.

Plus the secretary has resigned so I have new member folders from the secretary to distribute.

Another member can’t be there so her husband brought a bag over the other day for me to take.

I have my 4 embroidered clutches to take so they can be ready for the quilt show next month.  (I finished these 2 the other day.)

It will be a very long day… hoping the fun outweighs the responsibilities!!

Tuesday I’ll meet a new friend and we’ll go together to a Sonlight Meet-up with lots of us in a Chicago suburb.   Another packed lunch  😦  and a long day.

Wednesday you’ll find me napping but then I get to end the day with a ladies small group so I’m excited for that! 🙂

Here is another picture – another month of New York Beauty blocks were finished sometime before the cold hit me!  😉

I am working on the block of the month from The Quilt Show.  I ordered the kit for it and didn’t receive it until the beginning of February so I was already behind.  

I’ve worked on it in bits & pieces.  The week before, I finished the center star for January.


This past week I set the star on point and added plain borders and the pieced border.  These 4 patch pieced borders took some time!!  I’m glad we had good directions on how to fit them just right.  


I still should make 8 star blocks for the February assignment (they are for a later border) but I’m not sure I’ll get to that.  This is my last open weekend until April and there is a lot of work to be done!
