Another week without much accomplished--well, actually 2 weeks!  We were traveling and visiting relatives which explains the lack of sewing.  The yardage used was for machine embroidery squares to be used in a quilt; the designs were Playful Snowmen by Dakota Collectibles (  I had started embroidering these a few months ago and had 2 sets of 6 done as I was making a set for my sister's birthday gift.  I finished hers before we left home and mailed them while we were traveling; mine I finished yesterday. 

And then I cleaned my studio--sort of.  I made a list of quilts that are pieced but not quilted (76!!), and decided I need to work on the longarm and get some of those quilted!!  (It's just that I see so many pretty quilts and want to make them--I have so many quilts in my head and so much stash to use.)  And I found out that the quilt I had on my list to finish this month is already pieced!!  I've decided I want to go through my studio and box up things I haven't/won't use and get them ready to list for sale.  I'm no longer doing garment construction and can get rid of those supplies--and there are longarm rulers I don't use that can be listed for sale, too.  Wish me luck in getting this project done!!


  1. I probably have that many or more quilts that need quilting. Ihave don about 7 of them this year. Slow going.

    But good for stash busting as the backs take up a lot of fabrics!

    glen: good luck getting stuff done!

  2. Sounds like you are going to have a nice destash event! I do wish you good luck with it :*) I have a lot of tops ready for quilting, but not nearly that many!!!
