What a week! What do I have to show for my time? Not much, I am sad to say. As far as accomplishments, there is one that I am quite excited about. I received my first Round Robin box last Saturday. I knew what the center looked like because Sherry had posted a picture on the QOR site but until reading her instructions and seeing her fabric selections, had no idea what I would add. Those of you who know me, know that I don't let myself work on hobbies or fun things until I have my work done...........and my mother is not even here watching over me either. LOL I just seem to enjoy my hobbies more knowing that the housework is done! Not only that, I had Bunko last Monday night and a casserole to prepare for a family with a new baby. We have a program at our church called Stork Bites where we bring a hot meal and several frozen meals with dessert to the family when they get home with their new baby. So while preparing the meal, I decided to go ahead and make a few loaves of fruit bread for the freezer. I will use it next month for my Women's Guild luncheon.
Once I had all that done, I hurried to my sewing room to create!
I am really pleased with the outcome. I had seen the magazine which gave the directions for the center that Sherry chose at quilting a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. Wow, was I ever surprised to see that Sherry had chosen that same design for her Round Robin project. It will be hard for me to box it up and send it on to the next participant. lol I had already made a pattern for myself from my friend's magazine for later when I have time. I want to make a wall hanging using that design.
Since completing my round on Sherry's center, I have just spent my spare time hand quilting on my 2005 QOR Retreat Swap Blocks. I now have one 12 block and the borders to quilt before it will be ready for binding. It will be really good to have another UFO complete.
