You are in control. Never allow your Monday to be manic.

-Andrea LeArtiste

Welcome to another Monday Musings, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready to begin a new one!! Since there’s no cure for Mondays, let’s just get on with it!!

Here is my progress from last week

1/24/23 – 1/28/23 my plans are:

  • Continue working on Feb IB project. DONE! The project has continued. I have 16 blocks made and 20 left to sew…but they are all cut out and ready to go!
  • There are a lot of blocks to this project, so I may not get to anything else, but if I do, it will be the baby quilt!! Oh but I DID!! I did go through the scraps that remained from Kristal’s dad’s shirts and so far have come up with this by fussy cutting some of them. He loved Hawaiian shirts. Some of them I will need to put a light interfacing on as they stretched when I tried to cut them.
  • Whatever suits my fancy, but try to avoid squirrels as there is NO time for them right now!! DONE! No squirrels. I needed a break from my big project for next month’s blog hop, and sorting fabrics/scraps for the baby quilt was the perfect solution.

Plans for the week of 1/28 – 2/4/24:

  • Continue working on IB project.
  • Work on next round of SAHRR.
  • Look for my interfacing to go on the back of the baby quilt scraps and iron it on.
  • Avoid squirrels – NO time for them right now!! Wow, Thursday begins “next month!” I have a week and a half to get my top finished and quilted for the blog hop! Gotta light a fire! LOL

    Hi Brenda! Mondays mean two posts from you, and I thank you for both of them. Good job on a productive week. How fun is that Hawaiian shirt project? Nice job on the fussy cutting. I know it takes more time but the end result is totally worth every minute. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    Congrats on meeting your goals. I especially liked “no squirrels.” Keep that pedal to the metal. (Hum, it might be plastic rather than metal.) And, I got a real kick out of the Minion speaking the truth about Monday.

    I am ready to quilt my log cabin project. Hope I can get it done and take pictures and write the blogpost before the due date. It is going to be a Nail-biter. Yikes! Looking forward to your quilt 🙂
