Do or do not – there is no try!


I wonder if Yoda starts Mondays screaming like this meme??!!! I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, but I do like the Yoda! We can’t all be Yoda masters, but we can definitely push ourselves to be the “quilting” masters of our own universe!! LOL

How was your week? Mine was so-so, nothing terrible, nothing great, but it was fun!

For the week of 11/27 – 12/3/23:

  • Get photo of quilt to share. DONE!! And here it is. This is a pattern I wrote for our Sit n Sew group at our LQS which, unfortunately, went out of business. This same group does now meet at a local senior center and we have a good therapy session! LOL I used a motif in my Avante called Optical Illusion.
  • Complete cutting of IB project and start stitching. DONE!! You’ll see it later this month!
  • Work on Virtual Christmas Cookie Blog Hop project. DONE!! See my post after this one!
  • Sew day Wednesday – I need my therapy – I’ve missed it! NOPE! Unfortunately, we had to cancel again. It worked out good for me as Miss M had to picked up at noon after they finished their ACT tests. Back a hundred years ago when I was in school, we couldn’t take them until 11th grade and we had to go on a Saturday. Now they’ve started taking them already in 9th grade, which I think is good and helps prepare them more.
  • Whatever else suits my fancy! I just had fun and enjoyed my embroidery machine this week!

For the week of 12/4 – 12/10:

  • Work on IB project.
  • Begin some secret sewing for two projects.
  • Whatever else suits my fancy!

    The meme made me chuckle. “Whatever suits my fancy” is the best way to spend a day in the quilt room! Thanks for hosting the linky!

    I feel like I have had Monday on me for 2 days! I do love that quilt and sorry to hear about your LQS. I felt awful when we lost ours. Good luck with your week!

    That graphic cracked me up! Your quilt is just gorgeous Brenda! Sad that your LQS closed, but glad that you still meet up for therapy. 😉 Thank you for allowing two linkups in the party.
