Sew For a Hour Project, Hour 2




My progress today: I trimmed the hst's, then sewed them to the sashing strips and pressed. That took care of the hour -- I have all 20 blocks ready for the next step.

Then I switched gears, finished the last piece to applique down on the block I prepped last night.

Then, switched gears again to iron the six or seven shirts in the laundry basket! Then, hand sewed the binding on the 3rd baby quilt -- it is now in the dryer. And finally, shifted gears one last time to prep two more applique blocks for Briana's quilt (there are 15 in all -- but all easy like this one. And that was my day more or less!



















Gratitudes:
1. Nice breakfast out with friends this morning.
2. A pleasing conversation with my favorite grocery store employee today. She's a very pleasant woman to talk with.
3. My resurrection lilies are blooming in the front -- need to check the backyard yet.

WOW, I won't tell you what I got accomplished today! I'd feel way too inferior!

Nice work!!

Susan said...

What a busy, mostly quilty, day! The little flower is cute as a button (which is much cuter than a bug's ear) and your blocks are going to be fabulous!

*whew* I'm tired after reading your list of projects for the day. Extra kudos for the regular ironing -- a dreaded chore here. Your blocks are looking good.
