Nothing Quilty

This morning I haven’t done anything to do with quilting but I did get my flannel pants completed!  Off to the store in a little bit to pick up some Ritz Clothing dye – blue or green ?– and some groceries —

Nothing fancy – I messed up and have the drawstring on the inside of the waistband instead of the outside – but some are like that anyhow so I guess we could say I did it like that because I felt like it Smile I’m too lazy to change it.  And no I do not need these pants right now it is still too warm around here although the temperatures have been lower later – thank goodness, it looks like the 100+ temperatures are gone for now and back to the high 80’s to mid 90’s for the 10 day outlook – we even had a little rain in the middle of the night – less than a quarter inch but still better than none.  I wanted to get the pants done and then put the  sewing machine away again for awhile – no sense having it out on my Sew Ezi Table if I don’t need it out – that way I have it back to a computer table again.

When I get back from the store I will get busy pin basting the X quilt and that will then be ready to start working on.

Last night I got a little more of the applique done on the Red and Green quilt – I believe I have 1 and 1/2 borders left to applique.  I got about half way done with another POTC block as well – now I just have to get back to work on Joseph’s Coat!

What do you have planned to work on today and this week?  I will try to work on all projects – lets see how that goes!

You’re so ambitious! I don’t sew clothing anymore either except for dolls. My next thing is making a binding for the very BIG quilt I took off the frames yesterday. I immediately put a baby quilt in the frames; can’t let it stay empty!

No rain last night; just a drop, drop, drop here and there on the roof!

Work today and tomorrow a trek to a nearby quilt shop that is in need of some more of my 3-tie purse patterns. In the afternoon I hope to get my QOV quilt pin basted. Have a little customer sewing to get done. Grandson’s b’day gathering next Saturday eve will require(?) something special made for that meal! The young guy has definite preferences when it comes to foods/bakings that I do;-)
