It is finally feeling like spring around here
which is putting everyone in a better mood.
Everyone is out walking, biking, working in
the yard--anything to be outside of the house!
I've been inside way more than I'd like, for sure,
but that will be changing. Before I get to that,
I want to check in on what I've gotten done
over the last week.
1) Finish the Americana quilt
Well, I didn't finish it but I've been working
on quilting it a little here and there. See #3.
2) Make two Farmer's Wife blocks
Just one completed. Again, see #3.
3) Finish all masks
I completed 355 surgical masks for the hospital!
It feels like that is all I've done for weeks! Getting
back to quilting, or anything else, seems as great
as the arrival of this spring weather.
Oh, today is a GOOD day!
4) Don't take on ANY more mask orders
This was a super easy one--I didn't!
I got a decent amount done.
Still frustrated with my choice but so be it;
the scarf is slowly growing. I look forward to
making this again some day in a solid.
Accomplishing my to-do's for next week looks
more promising than it has in about a month.
1) Not to sound like a broken record but...
finish the American quilt. Really.
2) Start a new quilt!
I've been really excited to start this one.
I always say my quilting tastes are all over the place.
I'm usually traditional but I think I can find something
I like in almost every category--almost.
Anyhoo, I'm just giddy about starting this one.
After all those blue/white masks, this is going to
be such a breath of fresh air--and therapeutic.
3) Continue with evening knitting on scarf
4) Figure out this month's Christmas finish
In January, I joined the "One X-Mas Item A Month"
group. I don't even have an idea of what to make
next but projects are to be posted on the 25th of every
month so I need to get on it--fast!
None of this is outside but there's always garden
work, decks to clean, plants to be potted...
you get the idea. But when it's time to rest?
I plan on sitting outside in the sun, or on a deck,
or in the garden--I have created lots of resting spots!
I think after making over 400 masks, I've earned it.
I'm looking forward to being back next Tuesday
with some actual quilting progress!
