This week’s line up, Week 14

4/2/2016

Wow, my list is pretty similar to last week.  What did I do last week?  Whew.  I know this weekend I’ll be spending today with my parents.  It’s their last day here and I’m not sure what time they will be leaving so I plan to just dedicate this time to them. Then tonight, the hubby and I will be going out with friends.  We’re trying out a new place so hopefully the music is good.  I’ve heard good stuff so I’m sure it will be fun. Tomorrow, I’ll probably spend the day recuperating.  All of this to say, I will probably not get much done on my list this weekend.  I’m just rolling over last week’s list to this week!

Here’s my plan this weekend, a simple list to help me!

  1. Scrapitude, 2015 – Binding!
  2. Celtic Solstice – press the remaining Block A’s and continue working on Block B.  Maybe I can get all of the first rows of all the blocks done.

  1. knit – just another couple of rows
  2. cross stitch – just a bit
  3. Cut 31 yellow strips for the strip club of SFVQA – due 4/11
  4. hand work – A Rainbow Garden – keep working on the petals on the current block.

Health Update: I didn’t get to go to yoga last week and my diet took a nosedive.  I’ll need to spend some time this weekend cutting up veggies and prepping for next week.  If I take the time over the weekend to do this, I’m much more likely to eat better during the week.

Have a great quilty Saturday!

But first, I’ll be going to the farmers market at Calabasas.  I didn’t realize how close it was to me and I’ve heard great reviews.  With the new way of eating, I need a lot more veggies in my fridge or I’ll be setting myself up for failure.

Then, I’m going to try to hit up a yoga class in the afternoon.  It will be my 4th this week if I can make it.

And if I don’t get enough steps in at the farmers market, I need to fit in a walk too.

For quilty to do’s, I’ll be concentrating on hand binding Scrapitude.  I want this done this weekend so I can bring it to my next VMQG guild meeting on Tuesday for show and tell.  So I’ll be sitting on my butt trying to get this done this weekend.  Everything else is on the crafty weekend list is secondary and if I do any will only be because I needed to do something else than binding.

Have a great quilty Saturday!

Here’s my plan this weekend, a simple list to help me!

  1. Scrapitude, 2015 – prep the binding and get it on.
  2. Moon Glow – put sample fabric on the frame and get the machine set up right with the thread I want to use
  3. Raining Cats and Dogs – border #2
  4. Celtic Solstice – press all the Block A’s. Press the seams away from the star points units and towards the 4 patch units.  And I know this is boring for me so I need to alternate it with start putting together Block B’s.
  5. knit
  6. cross stitch – need to buy the floss I ran out of and work on outlining the letters and the right side.
  7. scrapbook – work on one page
  8. hand work – A Rainbow Garden – keep working on the petals on the current block.
