Spring To A Finish

I am joining in on Tallgrass Prairie Studio's Srping To A Finish. You can still join! The challenge started Monday April 19 and runs through May 31st.

I have made my list of projects I want to finish. I will keep a copy on my side bar too.

1. Brown Dress for ME
2. Delaney's Sundress
3. Daphne's Outfit
4. 3 Crib Sheets for Kristen
5. Cherry Quilt 1
6. Cherry Quilt 2
7. Cherry Quilt 3
8. Hexi Quilt Top
9. Pinwheel Quilt Top
10. Bind Brown Quilt
11. Stripe Purse
12. Red & White Quilt Top

If it all gets done I am supposed to think of a reward for myself. If I can get 2 things a week finished, I can get all 12 done!

Join me in the challegne. Make your list and May 10th there is a half way check in.

I am almost back

It has been a crazy few weeks. Last week I was sick and I am still recovering from that.

I have finished 2 of 3 of the cherry quilts for a client. I started the last one last week. They take longer than you think. I am hoping to have the third top done by the end of the month.

Other than that not much sewing going on here.

Delaney loves riding her bike when the weather lets us go out. Daphne likes going for a walk while Delaney rides.

Last weekend I got to go to the Foothill Quilters quilt show. They have one of the BEST guild shows. I bought vintage linens to make pillows out of for the bedroom make over. The only fabric I bought at the show was 5 yards of a large print for $5, if nothing else it will be a good back.

I am sad to say the Auburn quilt shop is closing. When I was their in February they were talking to people that were interested in buying the shop. The owners are retiring and they didn't sell. Also the Quilter's Studio is closing in San Carlos. That makes 3 shops that I spend money at that have closed this year! It is only mid April.
