I can't believe it's already Sew & Tell Friday. What a week! I guess my biggest accomplishment was just surviving my first few days on the job at Hancock Fabrics. There's never a dull moment there, that's for sure. Busy, busy, busy! I don't think I've cut as much fabric in my lifetime as I cut this week. I'm enjoying the job so far, but one thing is clear, I won't have near the time to spend in my sewing room -- or on my blog, for that matter -- as I used to. (And don't even ask what my house looks like. LoL)
All things considered, I'm happy with what I did finish this week. I posted on Sunday about the fleece blankets I clipped and tied for our church blanket drive. Besides that, I also finished one more child's quilt top. This one is a bit larger than the one I finished last week, for a slightly older child:
Again, these were almost all donated fabrics, and I have enough left over to make at least one more quilt with these crazy sheep:
This morning, I mailed this and the top I finished last week to Margaret's Hope Chest for the Hope Squared project. I hope they reach their goal of 400 quilts for homeless children!
And that was my week. I have the weekend off and look forward to spending it (preferably relaxing) with my grandson. I need to tackle this wreck of a house before he arrives... I have meals to plan for next week... I have making Christmas gifts on my mind... I want to go see all the other finished projects posted at Amylouwho's blog... and, and, and...
I hope to find a balance for everything, one of these days. :o)
