Mid Month Report

Here we are already half way through this month.
I have managed to do a little work so far. The month started out pretty busy. The first Monday, of course was the BOM out at the quilt shop. Then Wednesday was the start of a 4 part Beginning Quilt Class. Friday was the start of a 2 part Curve It Up Class using the Quick Curve Ruler. Of course, Thursday BQB came by and we did our walk and instead of coming home right away we had to make a stop at a fabric store. Then we came home and did a little planning on our project for Thursday sew day.

The second Monday of the month was the Marti & Me Club and Open Sew. Wednesday was class #2 of Beg, Quilting, and Friday was Curve It Up. On Thursday BQB and I started on our new project. We decided we wanted to do The Gypsy Wife Quilt. We spent the first half of the day making the first 2 blocks. The second half of the day we worked on UFO's. Here are our first 2 blocks. Mine are on the left and her's are on the right.

Saturday was the Early Bird Car Swap Meet at the fairgrounds. Hubby & I went with the thought of maybe finding something we need for my '62 Ranchero. Well we didn't find anything for that but I did find something.

The oil can in the upper left corner is stamped Singer.

Yesterday I worked on a second version of Tropical Punch. I wanted to do something different cause I'm teaching this at the April Retreat I go to and I want them to see a different style. I may make a third version if time allows.

Here is the original.

Then I got busy and quilted this quilt. This is for my accountant.

After finishing that I loaded this quilt and got started on it.

Today I have done a little more cleaning up around the sewing room.

I guess that's about it for now.

Til later,
Hugs & Stitches,
