I’m sorry, I’ve got no pictures to show. All I finished this week was the bucket bags from earlier this week for a total of 3 yards. That’s bringing me closer to actually using more than adding. I don’t think that’s ever happened except maybe the first week of the year. Maybe… It’s a new place for me and kind of exciting. 🙂 I am planning on purchasing things at the guild’s quilt show in May and our SoCal Quilt Run in June so I’m hoping to get my numbers in a good place before then.
Martidiy asked me what I do with the bucket bags and I gave the girl hers and I’ve been using mine to tote my yoga stuff in the car. It’s not big enough for the yoga mat but I put my yoga clothes and face towel in it. It sits in my car so that whenever I’m able to go to a class after work, I don’t have the excuse that I don’t have my things. That’s what I did with the bags this time. If I get the mojo to make these again, I am thinking about saving them for emergency gifts. I never feel like making anything when I do have to give a gift so it is a good idea for me to have a gift closet that I can go to. A long time ago, I used to get things on sale and put them in a closet. These things were usually anywhere from $1 – $10 each but whenever I had a party to go to I always had something to give without worrying about spending money at that moment or taking the time to go to the store. Over the years I let the practice go for one reason or another – space, money, just not going shopping as much as I used to so not seeing the sales like I used to… But I think I can do a similar thing but with things I make.
I spent yesterday morning quilting on Bailey and I’m prepping a whole post about that. It’s not ready yet and I do not have the energy to finish it. But Month by Month is half quilted and would have been done yesterday if the needle hadn’t broken. I do not have an extra one so I will not be able to finish it until I’ve got that. I have to run errands today so I’m hoping to stop by Joann’s to get that and some other things that’s been on my list.
I spent the rest of yesterday’s afternoon getting “month 12” of Moon Glow started. I finished step 3 and will be working on step 4 today.
I’m running a little slow today, we had too much fun with friends and stayed up way too late last night. Now I’m suffering – but it was fun! 🙂
