Maw-valous Monday!

Last week was tough.  The hubby started working a few weeks ago and I’m having a difficult time adjusting.  After more than 5 years of not having certain responsibilities, I suddenly am finding myself needing to do things like cooking, cleaning, picking up the kiddos from school… I could go on and on.  So my crafty time is being taken up with these things.  And the bit of time I am able to do anything – I’m using it to bind Hampton Ridge.  Not much to take pictures on!

Here was my list last week:

  • Hampton Ridge – Hand stitch the binding. … I worked on this but it is still not done. 
  • Celtic Solstice – Get more block Bs done! … I got a couple more blocks done. 🙂 
  • Missing Ivy – Get the next 2 borders (#3 and 4) on. … done.. just barely as I finished this yesterday.  I need to press it and get a picture for you. 
  • Provence – press the blocks and figure out what’s the next step for this. … not done … 
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – try a different method to appliqué the remaining leaves and bat. … I fused it, machine appliquéd it and didn’t like how it looked.  I am messing with the specs and I’m hoping that I will find a spec that I will like.

So this week, here’s my target:

  • Hampton Ridge – Continue to hand stitch the binding.  I am on my third side so I’m hoping that this will get done this week.
  • Celtic Solstice – Get more block Bs done!
  • Missing Ivy – Get the next 2 borders (#5 and 6) on. The borders are already prepped.  I just need to measure, cut, pin, and sew!
  • Spooky Halloween … Row 2, block 1 – I’ve got the bat left and the embroidery.  It would be wonderful to be done with this block this week.
  • Have yourself a quilty little Christmas! – I picked up this month’s kit last Thursday and I wanted to jump on it this weekend.  I didn’t because I had a lot of stuff to do and the bit of crafty time I had I spent binding Hampton Ridge or prepping the borders of Missing Ivy.
  • Provence – press the blocks and figure out what’s the next step for this.

I’m looking forward to a great week!
