Can you believe it is already 3 December 2019? I am joining in the fun To Do Tuesday linky party with Roseanne today! I had hoped to be further along with putting this project together, but you know that awful Ms Unforeseen Requirements Delays have again prevented that one! Here is where I was the ultimate Optimist Here. And if that isn’t bad enough Here is where things went South!
By Sunday afternoon I had corrected all issues and am now beginning to put the blocks on the Design Board so that all I will have to do is finish the 9 patches and the strip pieces between the blocks and on each row. I have to have a total of 92 each 2 3/4″ 9 patches, and 150 of the Red/Light Strip pieces for the sashings! I have 30 of the 9 patches completed and about 26 of the strip pieces finished! NOW I am hoping to have the quilt put together by Friday or Saturday since I have the process down pat.
This is a repeat of other things I have completed this week. Sweet Stitches Block 8 – September’s Block
I am working with a group of other quilters on Celebrating Mary Brown. They started in September and Ms Cataract caused me to be late in meeting the goals. So I have 16 blocks ready for applique an have finished 2 – WOW needed better eyesight to be current with this project, but now on a roll now!
Yesterday was a non-sewing day as we had errands to run and then lovely stupid phone calls to get BCBS straightened out – Think by mid December I will receive my check for reimpursement of the $449 Vitamin D Sun Lamp I have to have to maintain my levels! I am now headed for the sewing machine to make 9 patches and strip pieces for Alexander Bean Pot quilt!
I do hope to have a lot more done by next Tuesday – Happy Stitching and just know that all had a great Thanksgiving.
Goals for 3rd thru 9 December:
1. DO NOT ANSWER THE PHONE, THE MAIL, and KEEP THE GATE LOCKED!
2. Complete Alexander Bean Pot
3. Continue on with Celebrating Mary Brown (Catch up time)
4. I would like to do the Advent quilt with Sharon but of course I am a day late and a dollar short – I can catch up but not until I finish with Alexander and put him on the “to be quilted” rack!
Have a great week – and happy stitching!
