don't you worry, you're not losing your mind.g
you're not wrong, today is in fact tuesday and NOT monday like usual.
i figured i'd take the three day weekend off from blogging as well, and include monday's productivity in this weekly update as well.
i'm a little shocked we've also made it in to the september level of 2020.
what chaos is going to ensue this month?
this week included a lot of prep work, and then the weekend hit at full steam.
monday, i started cutting out the blocks for the baby quilt i wanted to get done this week (you know. the one with the fat quarter bundle i impulse bought). tuesday, i bought the kona to go with it and chopped it up. by thursday (i think) i had all my blocks done and a layout up on my design wall. i needed saturday to come, because i needed to spread out.
and saturday sure did happen.
i went to my parent's house early in the morning (by early, i mean 9am) and then my mom and i set out on a voyage to check out what was left at fabric garden for their going out of business sale. we made it there by 9:30, to be the 5th and 6th in line (luckily, they let us both go in together even though the cut of was 5)
i found a backing for my kapow quilt, binding for a christmas quilt, plus a few random pieces of yardage here and there. no grunge to stash away, or i could have gone for broke. then headed to swifty stitches where i got some thread for quilting and then we attempted to go to fabric garden, but i didn't check ahead of time and they don't have saturday hours again just yet. my bad.
after lunch i got down to business and knocked out the entire quilt top in one day (including a dinner pizza break) and followed it up with making the 3 backs needed for quilting.
monday i quilted for 6 hours, and got all three quilts done!
now the rest of this week will be spent recuperating and gearing up to making some binding.
i suppose i could also start working on either my big/little sister quilt sets or the shop samples.
hmm... decisions, decisions...
