Hey, I know it’s Monday. But it’s also a new day and a new week. And in that lies a new opportunity for something special to happen.

Michael Ely

I hope you all had a great week! Our kids went on vacation so we had zoo duty from Wednesday night to Sunday morning. But, we love our grandfurries…and feathery! LOL Let’s check out my progress from last week.

For the week of 6/26 – 7/2/23:

  • Get Rainbow Neighbourhood into a flimsy! ✔ Done! You can check my previous post for all the juicy details!
  • Cut block or two for Amish with a Twist. Time to get back on this one! ✘ Nope. Just didn’t get around to it!
  • Start quilting a beautiful quilt for a friend. ✔ Done! More on that to come later.
  • Whatever else suits my fancy! ✔ Done! It’s nothing I can show you right now, but my second shipment of boxes from Island Batik came – Christmas in July!! YAY I’ll be posting my video and photos on the 10th. I also did some cleaning of the studio but needs more before I get started on another project!

For the week of 7/3 – 7-9:

  • Finish quilting my friend’s quilt.
  • Hopefully get Lovely Neighborhood quilted also.
  • Cut out those Amish With a Twist blocks so I’ll have something to work on at sew day Wednesday!
  • More cleaning in the studio.
  • Whatever else suits my fancy!

    Grands Duty gets pretty interesting sometimes, right? 😀 Your Neighbourhood quilt is so pretty. I’m looking forward to your unboxing video!

  8. Preeti Harris

    I fell in love with your neighborhood. It is so important to have some room between houses and those trees in the center are just perfect. I am looking forward to your unboxing video next week. I shot mine yesterday. I am not thrilled with it but it will have to do. Time to cut into the fabrics 😀
