Sunday Post on Wednesday
Well its Wednesday, and I am just now getting around to posting my Sunday post - yea, we all have weeks like that. This weekend was spent attending some programs at the University, visiting with my Dad and hours and hours of washing, ironing, and cutting fabric. My club, bless them all, have agreed to help my daughter with a project with her 3rd grade class. Each child (20 in all) is going to color pictures onto fabric around a theme, then my club will assemble the quilts for tying. On May 25, we will join the students and their parents in class to teach them how to tie the quilt, have a quilt show and watch the kids act out skits on the theme they studied - all about being smart in their daily lives, not taking chances, that sort of thing. So this weekend, I cut out 20 backings, 196 white blocks with freezer paper backing for coloring (needed 160 but thought a few extra might be a good idea), and 20 sets of sashing. Its a good thing I enjoy cutting fabric! I really am proud of my daughter as she wrote a grant to do this project and also did a presentation at her PTA to get their support. I think it is going to be a lot of fun, now that all the fabric is cut and ready to go.
My other project, which I finished this morning, was to write a pattern for my Heart and Home wall hanging. I still have to test it out with my club, bless them double, but the pattern is done!
My husband, being the kind hearted hungry man he is, furnished supper Sunday night.
Now...on to the next project. I am home this morning, psyching myself up for my annual checkup at the doctors office later this morning. (Good thing I got that hamburger on Sunday, will be mylast one for awile.) I won't show you a picture of the look on my face as I type that one! I think I will get cleaned up and go to Hancocks before the doctor's office...try to get my blood pressure back to normal.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday...er, Wednesday.
