Mid Week Update

Yesterday's customer quilt wasn't that big (about 50 x 60) and was no problem at all so I got it done fairly quickly. I love doing the free hand dwirling (from Pajama Quilter DVD). I kind of zone out and lose track of time.

Once that was done the rest of the day was mine and I worked on table runners for upcoming craft shows. Even though all three of these fabrics are from the same fabric line I can't say I am thrilled with the lighter green with the dots on it. I am hoping that once I get borders on these (more of the poinsettia fabric) it will tone down the green a bit.


My 10 minutes of picking up/cleaning time was again used on ironing, folding and putting away fabrics.

Lastly, we took the daughter to a college fair last night. Wow were there a lot of college represented. We told her to stick to looking at only Maryland colleges as the out of state tuitions are just not in the budget. It was all kind of overwhelming thats for sure. She is a junior this year so this is all getting "real" for all of us but still hard to believe that in less than two years my baby will be off to college. I am going to have a hard time with that I am very sure.

I used my 10 minutes to clean up my thread storage and then wind bobbins for several quilting projects. Now it is time to head to the pool, but I will be ready when I get home, and that is something I really appreciate. Thanks again for the 10 minute idea.

regibGlad that you are trying to give yourself a 10 minute break. You do so much for so many people that your deserve the break for youself. I will be working at the fair tomorrow. Maybe I will see you there?
