What a crazy day! I swear you can never be done with sample making! Just when you think you're done, you think of another sample to make! I've got more to make later this week, but for now, I'm set.
Oh my -- I LOVE Monday sewing. I was a bit distracted as I made those samples and took pictures and videos. But it didn't matter; we chatted about everything and anything. I feel so connected to these ladies! They are my family! And it's a great way to do some mindless sewing, although it was a little bit harder with the sample making!
Today, we're going to continue with the UFO show and tell. I have to tell you that I'm impressed with this group! Some are moving, some have had major family issues, some people are working full-time and still keep plugging away at those UFOs. Now that's dedication!!! It would be easy to set things aside, but that's the beauty of each person setting their own goal. They know how much time they have.
Liz got the binding on this applique quilt which has already been gifted to her granddaughter! The baby approves!!

And there you have it - another great Show and Tell from the UFO group for May. Each person has given me their assignment for next month, and I feel pretty confident that they'll get them completed. Wow!!!!! Even myself, if you don't need to be accountable to someone for working on a project, it's easy to let it slide. I've got a big assignment this month - well, not huge, but it's going to take time, so I hope to start working on that next Monday. No more sample-making on Monday. It was a bit distracting.
One more class and one presentation today. It's another busy week. That quilt is still on the long arm; there's a ton of writing to do and another busy weekend with classes coming up! And the weather is super nice!!! Oh well - I'll go for my walks and perhaps sneak outside for a few extra minutes here and there. I could write outside, so that may be where I end up. I need both computers to be attached to my external hard disk, which isn't possible. I need an IT guy who can set up a server for my computers!!!
Don't forget the Virtual Retreat this weekend. Yikes -- it's going to be a nice day, but you can still drop in and say HI. I have a lot of work to do, so I think it'll be a good opportunity to stay in the basement, stay cool and get a lot of work done. I'll be posting the links later this week.
On that note, I'm out of here!!! It's too nice to have a decluttering task today. But what about the weeds in your garden? I whacked a few out yesterday and will probably do the same today.
Have a super day!!!
