Baby quilt for hire is done, see more below! At sewing bee I did my guild BOM and then moved on to a Pop Up for sewing trash when traveling. Worked on EC’s sweater. On Wednesday, I needed to create something, I made a mini from the BOM scraps. Some of these fabrics came from Seattle in 2019, I call it Seattle Mini. Then prepped a back for Oh My Stars, and cut and fused/quilted pieces for a Ten Pocket Tote. While using my camping rocker I knit a newborn beanie, for Baby EC, and then while watching The Hobbit I made a baby sized beanie, headed to Denver. I just love these poofs! And then I FMQ’d a charity top for a friend, tried a Paisley Flower motif. Then it was Monday and I thought, why not trim away a little more on the appiliqué quilt for hire and then knit the day away. Whew, it’s not all that impressive when you realize it’s a lot of little/quick things! 

Next week:

  1. Ten Pocket Tote
  2. Drive parents home/hair cut
  3. Knit for Baby EC
  4. Get Oh My Stars on Gigi

I will be gone from Wed-Sun this week so I am planning on a light list. Since I won’t be in my sewing studio I plan to take knitting. And then at some point I need to get my UFO for July done, so quilting Oh My Stars needs to happen before the 27th, as I am headed to Florida for a vaca.

Quilting sisters in the Guild approached me about quilting a baby top they made for a friend’s grandbaby. I nervously said yes, though still not confident in my skills for hire. Once I saw it I had a vision, just hope I did the adorable top justice.

Then it’s back home to my studio after being gone for the last 5 days. Mom is going to be able to get my sister to PT, I just wanted to be here during her relearning to walk time frame. She’s stable on her feet, it’s just a matter of making sure that knee doesn’t get locked.
