Three day weekends are really nice! One of the best things is not having to get up early - just knowing that I can get up and start the day at a slower pace is so great. I really love it! I set myself to get busy and get some straightening up done in the sewing room. I have way too many piles of projects ou in various stages and I really need to get some of them cleared up - the above picture is a before shot. I took an after, but it really didn't look that much different, so I decided one picture would be plenty - it might take a few more weekends to make much of a dent in all that clutter! And isnt it interesting how much better it looks in black and white?
One of the projects I got a good amount done on was my sample for the February class I am teaching. The pattern is Crosswalk in Paris by the Cozy Quilt Company. Love it! Very simple and fun to see come together. This class will be a pure pleasure to teach, so I hope I have a full house to teach it to! I still need to add a border, so now I have to get to the quilt shop to choose one. I was thinking I might get it quilted this week, but I'm not sure if I want to make that a top priority or not this week.
I also put together a table runner I am working on as a personal challenge to myself - it's now ready to quilt after I get it basted, I even have the backing ready to go. I put away a lot of random project parts, did a little bit of mending and put together and quilted a lap quilt (promise to show you more of that in a couple days). Today I did some fusing and blanket stitching on a customer quilt, so only three more blocks to go on that one. Hopefully the rest of my week will be as productive as the last three days have been!
