'Flower Power' was on the frame for a few extra days until things were sorted, but it's owner was very understanding.

As if 'Flower Power' wasn't enough, here's more proof that the prettiest quilts come across my frame!

My Secret Santa table runners are coming along. I can get three runners from a meter of seasonal fabric. I hope to make a total of six sets (18 runners) for the program...I know it's ambitious, but I'm gonna try! The first and second sets are finished (6 runners), so I'm a third of the way there.
|Set ONE (one runner shown, but there are two more just like it)|
|Set TWO (all three of these are now bound and ready to go)|
Machine binding has helped speed things up. I cut the binding at 2 1/4" wide, and attach it to the front of the quilt as usual. I then baste the binding to the back of the quilt using glue (Roxanne's Glue Baste It). A final round of stitch-in-the-ditch from the front of the quilt finishes the job. Slick.
The Hugs From Across Canada blocks I volunteered to make into a quilt are still waiting, but I do have a plan for the layout. I've decided to make a strong center for the quilt by using the darkest blocks in that position. I will start sewing today - yay!

It was a crazy week around here with work, family and social activities. Between birthday celebrations, lunches out, school visits, company, cooking, cleaning, and quilting, I was wishing there were two of me! How is everyone else doing it all??? *deep breath*
|Had a quick lunch at school with my granddaughter. Who could say no to that??? :-)|
I love that she is as happy to see me as I am to see her!
I have, but sometimes it's hard to keep them straight. I am trying hard to keep my work schedule reasonable. (It is my own personality that makes it difficult, not my clients!) Having a home based business makes it too easy to work all. the. time.
I've posted a reminder where I can see it, and it does help.
- Health (physical, emotional, spiritual)
- Spouse (and family)
- Wealth (work is important, but not at the expense of the first priorities)
What are your priorities, and how do you keep on track?
