After a wonderful weekend in NYC I am ready to get back to normal. I did get to stop by the garment district on Sunday very briefly. Luckily I knew my limit and carry on size so I did not purchase too much fabric. I picked out two wondeful yards that I already have ideas for.
What is on the docket for this week…LOTS. I start my new job next Monday. I’m taking the rest of the week off to spend some time sewing. I will be in a great mood going into the new job especially if I get a few projects marked off this list.
- Finish June block for Quilt Guild…yep, I’m behind already
- Make the July block
- Get those out in the mail
- Piece rows for the custom quilt for Etsy
- Finish applique on a quilt for Etsy
- Press some UFO tops to hopefully get pinned and basted.
- Get some items started for Etsy listings so I can keep listing every couple of days.
Goal for this week is to spend Wednesday-Friday sewing so I can enjoy my weekend. Last week before we left I did make some strides in organizing my sewing room. I unpacked about two big boxes. I found a great new piece to put in the room for pressing pieces, it extends with drawers. I can now walk from my cutting table, to the pressing table and put ideas up on my design wall. My design wall is just a simple plastic tablecloth the with fuzzy back.
Fabrics that I bought for quilts have been sorted into a shoe organizer. That way, I can just pull them out and get started. BTW…I have that thing full, so 24 projects to go. Doesn’t look like much was done in there last Wednesday, but I see progress and that’s what is important.
