A great day full of laughs and lots of good conversation.
I went mostly prepared. You can get so much more done when you're prepped and everything is cut. OK - so I wasn't completely prepped, but I had enough to keep me busy. What did I work on? Stuff that has been sitting in The Task Master for a while.
I started to work on the 150 Canadian Women blocks last year and well, I didn't get too far. I think I made it to block 25 or somehwere in that neighbourhood and the project got abandoned. I had more blocks cut out, but no time to sew them.
Yesterday I sewed SIX blocks and crossed two items off from a week in the 2017 Task Master lists. Can you imagine if I rewrote that item every week? No - leaving it unhighlighted is best for me. This project wasn't urgent, but I didn't want it to get forgotten.

I still have another 6 blocks of the 150 CW already cut so no prep required for that one.

|Well labeled kit
|One more project prepped for Monday
What were some of the others working on? Claudette brought this in for show n tell. I think she ended up sewing this together twice! We don't need to go into why, but it looks amazing and I think she had a border to add?

I have a ton of work to do today. Oh yes - I should say that I have another finish today. I got the sleeve sewn on one of those wall hangings last night. One more to sew today. And I should have been working on the urgent quilts yesterday but that was my fun day! I won't say what has to be done by Sunday night next week because it would make you want to lie down, so I'll spare you the details until they are completed!
On that note, I don't think much paperwork is going to happen this week - there's too much sewing to do! It's all because that darn longarm is scheduled to leave next week and there are quilts that have to be quilted before it goes.
Have a great day!
