So I was tidying up the Current Projects table a couple of days ago, and OH MY - what's this? Why that's the Trendtex Challenge for the upcoming Canadian Quilter's Association virtual quilt show in June. Hmm - what's the deadline? OH -- for the quilts to be part of the judging process, they need to be received by April 5. OH!
Well, that's doable! When I first received the kit months ago, an idea had popped into my head, and no better idea came along. So I decided to go for it. Normally, I try to do original things with these challenges, but this time, I had seen a pattern that I thought was perfect. Now, where is that pattern, and oh my - I need a special tool for the pattern.
Here's the kit, by the way.
|The Trendtex Challenge kit for 2021|
|Sewing projects prepped and ready to sew|
|Machine embroidery units and extension tables|
|PFAFF creative icon|
|Husqvarna Viking DESIGNER Sapphire 85|
Lots of machines in the current work area
|A Walk in the Woods movie|
|A book about the Appalachian Trail|
I had to chuckle because Linda suggested that I only need to walk PART of the trail. And yes - that is indeed true. However, since I can't read just ONE magazine article but insist on reading the entire thing from cover to cover (I don't read ads - thankfully), it would be a challenge to only walk PART of one of the historic trails. It's just a thing I've had my entire life. Going to read a book that's part of a series? NO WAY - I have to start at the beginning of the series.
I told you I have obsessive traits, and that's just one of them. I'm trying with the magazine thing. I'm trying!!
So things are on track. I need to find a photograph of a quilt - that's my main goal for today. No luck so far, and I've asked my Dad to take a picture of the quilt, which seems to be a HUGE issue. I don't know why so I must follow up with him today. Sigh.................
Oh my - I read that article on sorting through the magazines, and it makes total sense. I'll try to share it with you tomorrow.
Today, why not tackle the shoes at your front door?? Are there shoes that no one wears any longer? Boots that may need to be put away?
Well, it's another action-packed day at my house and time to get the day started. In case you're wondering, I added that missing 4 KM to my virtual challenges. I mean - I did walk them and retraced my steps yesterday to verify the missing mileage.
Have a super day!!!!
