Monday Musings 2/19/24

by | Feb 19, 2024 | 5 comments

With this coffee – and many, many refills – I shall overcome the Monday!


Some days I enjoy getting up early, but it seems the older I get, the more I like to sleep in! Of course, I’m sure that has nothing to do with the time I go to bed! LOL Welcome to another Monday Musings!!

How was your week? Before you link up, let’s see how my week went. It was busy … until Thursday at least, when I could let my hair down a bit. For the week of 2/12 – 2/18/24:

  • Find that interfacing!! Then work on the Hawaiian shirt quilt! I really want to get it finished before the 25th, which is our church homecoming, and the recipient will be in attendance, driving up from Florida! DONE!! I got several blocks cut and stitched together during sew day on Wednesday. Now I just have to add them to what’s already sewn together and see how large it is.
  • SAHRR Round Five. DONE!! See my next post!
  • Do a little more cleaning in the studio, and vacuum out my machine and get it cleaned up and ready to go for the next project! DONE!!
  • Whatever suits my fancy and try avoiding those squirrels! DONE!! No squirrels but I did enjoy getting together with my sewing buddies on Wednesday. Good therapy session!

For the week of 2/19 – 2/25/24:

  • SAHRR Round Six. This will be the final round! It has gone quickly!
  • Begin March Island Batik project.
  • Work on pattern for Cabin in the Woods.
  • Whatever suits my fancy and try avoiding those squirrels!

Here is a recap of our quilty friends’ linkups from last week!

    Glad you were able to get the Hawaiian shirt quilt done. Here’s hoping you have a fabulous week!

    Brenda, I’m so curious about your Hawaiian Shirt quilt! Do the blocks look like little shirts and your fabrics are batiks and tropical botanical prints, or are they “regular” quilt blocks made from actual Hawaiian shirts that you cut up into pieces? You’ve probably shared this project in a prior blog post and I’ve missed it because I’ve been all-consumed with this move.

    I love the idea of Squiggles, Dots and Lines. It just sounds fun. You find the best memes. I particularly like the bird — no worm! Ha.

    Ten years ago, when I learned a friend of my daughter, only 30 years old at the time, was diagnosed with colon cancer and would be undergoing surgery in just a few days, I asked her favorite color. Blue. This also happens to be the ribbon color for colon cancer. I pieced, quilted, and bound a blue rail fence quilt in one weekend, so she would have it for her recovery. Her 7 year old son loves to cuddle under mommy’s quilt.

    You did great on your list – glad you got to let your hair down on Thursday! 😉 How do you vacuum your machine?
