Design Wall 8/29

This is what's on my design wall. It will be there for awhile. I am sort of playing around with how I want to finish it. I embroidered out the skulls over the past year.

I'm keeping everything black and white. The skulls have been embroidered on the Fairy Frost that glows in the dark.

Linking with Patchwork Times.HERE. Check out all the projects.

Well this week I did manage to get a few (very few) things done.

I can't even remember what I did Friday thru Sunday. (edit-Saturday I had #3 of Beginning Quilt class at LQS. Boy those students amaze me. This is the first class that has stayed ahead of where we should be.)

Monday I went out to the LQS to meet a client and pick up a quilt to do. Then ran some errands.

Tuesday-went to Olympia to visit my car and see how it is coming along. It should possibly have some paint on it by the end of the week..

Wednesday-loaded client quilt that I picked up on Monday (it was a rush job). Got it quilted and loaded the next quilt on.

Thursday-BQB came over and w went for our walk. Came back and she worked on inventory for our next show. I worked on client quilt.  .

Friday-finished quilting client quilt. Boy it was a big one. 96" x 110". I also got another Necessary Wallet Clutch made.

That's about it for the week.

Week Ending 8/18/16

Let's see how productive I am this week.

Friday-ran errands and didn't feel like doing anything downstairs so I actually did some housework (gasp).

Saturday-at LQS for Beginning Quilt class. The students are really excited about class. They had homework done. In fact we are a little ahead of where we are suppose to be.

Sunday-went downstairs and worked on a purse.

Monday-Finished up quilting my quilt that was on the machine. Made another Necessary Wallet Clutch.

Tuesday-client came back and brought the quilt that I missed a block on when quilting it. Got that fixed. Went shopping to pick up some supplies for inventory.

Wednesday-loaded client quilt and started on it. Neighbor came over, so spent time visiting.

Thursday-went for walk and then went to BQB's because the Thursday monthly meeting was over at her house this month because it was our Picnic Month.

On another front. This pic is a test of the lace that will be on my car when it gets done. The fender isn't for my car. It's just one they use for the test.

Not too productive this week. I'll try harder for next week.

Week ending 8/11/16

Ready? Go!!!

Friday-absolutely nothing done. Hubby said we need to go grocery shopping. By the time we got home it was lunchtime. Then I need to start on some baking I wanted to do (and I didn't burn down the house :-). I feel like baking once every three years or so (lol).

Saturday-out at the LQS for a Beginning Quilting Class. Class was a full one. Everyone did really good. When class was over everyone was right where we should be when we stop for the day.

Sunday- worked downstairs on the Necessary Clutch Wallet and watched Quilt Cam,

Monday-out at LQS for the Mini of the Month Club and an Open Sew class. Really good day. We had lots of fun in both classes.

Tuesday-nothing done downstairs. Had to go and get blood drawn and BOY! Did that hurt. I am usually a "hard stick". I made sure I drank plenty of water, but that didn't even help this time. Of course, I had a newbie. Finally, the regular guy took over and got what was needed. Got stuck 4 or 5 times to get it done though. From there I went to Artco for their Fabricadabra meeting. There was a good turn out.

Wednesday- came down and straightened up a little. Then I finished sewing the strips on Wild Child. Now to get started on the applique. I also traced out the next embroidery for the Vintage Tin. Added 2 borders on a 5 yard quilt I started at retreat in June. Then built out the backing as far as I could with the leftovers.

Thursday-quilting with BQB. But first had to go to Dr's. for 6 month check up. Everything is a-ok. Worked on getting the final borders on the Tumbler quilt that I did using them as Leader & Enders. This was Bonnie Hunter's year long project for L&E's. This year it is Hourglass blocks. Now I have to get busy and get lots of those cut up.

I also put up my Skull blocks and am going to start working on those. I won't post any pics on that one until the top is complete.

That's all for this week.

Week ending 8/4/16

Friday-Nothing done. Took the day off and went to the Good Guys Car Show at the fairgrounds. Nice WARM day for it. Ended up buying a car cover for La Pistola (my other project). Have to wait about 4 weeks for it cause it's custom made for that style car. Which is okay because the car won't be home for another month and a half or so.

Saturday-down early to get started on the rest of the BOM. I was down here from 8 AM until 8 PM working on the new BOM. I think I put in a good days work. Still need to finish up the borders.

Sunday-Back down early. Got the borders on by 12:30. I must say, this pattern went together soooooo well. Everything matched up perfectly on the pieced border. The rest of the day was spent relaxing. The best thing was that this was a Happy Potter weekend on TV. That kept me company during the work hours.

Monday-at LQS for the Block of the Month Classes.

Tuesday-went for walk with BQB. Then I played hookey from work and went to BBF's house and played with her and her machines for a while.

Wednesday- had some running around to do this AM. Got home around noon and after lunch I went downstairs and started cutting. I have cut 6 Do-Rags, I also cut out a Necessary Wallet Clutch.

Thursday-BQB came over and we went for our walk. Came back and started working right away. She is working on the next year's raffle quilt for a retreat. I started working on one of the Mini's for the Mini of the Month Club. Worked on that for a while and got bored, so I started working on some inventory for the shows. Went as far as I could go on those and then started adding some strips to the Wild Child Quilt that I am working on. (More on that to come.)

That's about it for this week.
