This week’s POA, 8/28/17

Happy Monday!

I wasn’t able to get that much done last week.  With the kids going back to school, my system is still just getting used to it and off our summer schedule.

Last’s weeks task and accomplishments:

  1. Quilting –
    1. Secret Project: hand bind 1 side of my secret project – NOT DONE
    2. Raining Cats and Dogs – hand quilt once this week – NOT DONE
    3. A Rainbow Garden – hand applique on Sunday – DONE
    4. Civil War Diary Quilt – do a block – NOT DONE
  2. Knitting –
    1. Kimono – finish the right sleeve and do 7 sets of right and wrong sides of the left sleeve. – DONE
    2. August Socks – Central Park – finish the foot and have it ready for the toe by the weekend. – DONE
    3. Starting Point – I have 16 rows left of the first clue.  I’d like to get 8 rows finished this week. – NOT DONE but I only missed this by 2 rows.
  3. Cross Stitch –
    1. Finish 3 colorways of Row 11 – DONE
  4. Bag Making –
    1. Maxwell Bag – (not on my monthly goal list) but I want to get through the next few steps.  I’m taking the next bag class on Saturday so I want to get through the 4 steps the instructor had given me at the last class. – NOT DONE.  I did get through the 3 next steps but I was having such a difficult time with the 4th step that I waited to attend the Saturday bag class to see if there was a better easier way to do it.  Nope there wasn’t but one of the ladies at the shop gave me an idea to try.  Hopefully that works.  If it does, I’ll share it with you.  You can see my struggles here.
  5. Clothes Making –
    1. LAFS – figure out what the next step is on my pajama pants and do it. – NOT DONE
