But I've been very busy. There was a possibility of having an overnight guest last Tuesday night, so I cleaned up the guest/sewing room to a farethewell. She decided to drive on home, so I had a pristine room to mess up - and I did! I got out all my works-in-progress to see what needed to be done. I piled them on the guest bed - so now the room is back to "normal" - organized chaos.
I have been quilting my red and cream round robin throw for a week and needed a break. I had a couple of blocks set aside for a table runner, so I finished that yesterday. Then I made the last blocks for the Around the World swap - they are ready to mail once I get some stamps. I haven't received all of mine yet, but they aren't due until August. In the meantime, I hope to make a few more to make a fairly substantial quilt. I also made two 2" sawtoothed star blocks to applique to the guild challenge wallhanging. They turned out pretty good, thanks to my prior training with Dear Jane's Papa's Star block.
I finished making 19 red and white 9" nine patches for another swap. Since I'm the hostess, they will sit and wait until the end of April when I hope all the other packages arrive. I am planning to set them very simply with a red and white print in between the blocks, so I cut those blocks out and set them aside.
Today I got back to quilting after a quick trip to the LQS for thread. I have two small quilts in the closet along with 3 table runners and 8 placemats to quilt. The latter will go fast, so I'm hoping I can get to them in the coming week. Did I mention that it has snowed every day this week?? No real sign of spring, so I might as well quilt. :-)
