That seems to be what my sewing consists of lately!
Things completed that I can't share until I gift.
New projects begun for gifts.
So what to do?
Why begin a few new charity quilts of course!
When I was out of town recently I saw a simple pattern on a little 3 x5 card and thought,
this would be a perfect Margaret's Hope Chest donation quilt.
Also I could count it as one for the 100 quilts for kids,
although I am not sure it will be finished in time for that one, but I am going to try.
I donate all year to MHC though.
Here is the top I was working on all laid out
It was a super easy one to make and went together quickly.
I am planning on making a Michigan and Michigan State one.
I figure they get a lot of girlie quilts so thought the sports teams would be a good idea.
Last year Carin from MHC told me they were the first 2 chosen!
Makes me feel so good!!
The top is finished but my quilter is out of town for the week.
Not sure she can get it done in the time frame to make it for the 100 quilts, but I am going to try. Maybe I will get the MSU top finished this week?
I have it all cut out.
Planning on laying it out tomorrow night at quilting where I have a BIG space.
I also cut out a NCSU top with this pattern to use for my daughter who is attending school there.
I thought I might be a nice couch quilt.
I sat down to rest and Fatty McFatty jumped right up and
put her arms around my arm and would not let me get back up for a time.
(Maybe she needs to go and visit her Auntie Dianne???)
I decided it was time to try a new recipe this last week too.
It was called Meatball Sandwich Casserole and it was amazing!!!
Even my hubby loved it.
Super yummy and super easy, my kind of dinner!!
LOTS going on with my dad, long story short we are moving him into a retirement community.
The estimated move will be the first week of October.
WAYYYYY too much work to do to get his house ready to sell too.
Can you say Hoarders???
Have a wonderful week!
