The third Saturday in March is National Quilt Day... that's today!!! And it just so happens to be St. Patrick's Day too... go figure!! A double whammy!! LOL
A friend from public school years posted on my Facebook that it should be a paid holiday for me! Heh... I'm all for it! ☺ But we all know that won't happen so I will quilt without pay for today LOL
I have organized the laundry room this morning - very, very small room. And low and behold don't I find 3 UFO's lurking in there! Darn things! Now I am off on a hunt for the real "missing" UFO's. I know I had them all together at one point and kept out a few that I would work on. But they are all big ones now and I want something "quick" or "quicker" so I can feel I have accomplished something.
So I will set up my quilting area and start quilting on one... THEN I will go pull out the totes in the corner as I "believe" that is where those pesky little fellers are. I have located a couple of my backings and finally have more backings on the way and should be here soon. Once the backings get here I will match up four of them up with quilts and take at least two to a friend that I have asked to quilt them, as I know she will do a stupendous job on them. See, one of those is the Breaking Free from the McCall's challenge I was in last year. She was excited to know I wanted her to quilt that one. And a couple others will go to yet another long arm quilter who will do a wonderful job with the pantograms on them as I do want them "done-done" and like now. They have been in my UFO-stash waiting to be quilted by me for far too long. There are yet a few more that I will practice my machine quilting on - something I have been having fun with! Yes, there are many quilt tops in my UFO stash and I know I want to make some really scrappy quilts soon, so I best get some of the ones I have now done!
Speaking of McCall's .... Blue Suede is FINALLY on his way home!! I got the email yesterday to say he has been "express post" along with my last two challenge win prizes as well!! This is just soooooo exciting!
|Blue Suede is coming Home!!!|
Okay.... enough already - National Quilt Day is passing me by and I haven't even turned on the sewing machine yet!!
Remember to go sew/quilt something today!!
hugs all,Choux ♥
