Make-A-List Monday

Here we go again.  Our Internet has been out for three days.  Comcast had a recording saying it should be restored by 10PM Sunday night ... NOT!

I'm at my DS and DDIL's house today so I am going to try to get this posted using their Internet.  Unfortunately, without Internet, I was unable to get many photos in this post.  

I have also recently switched to a photo holding website called Dropbox that I have not entirely figured out.  My DS told me that this is the best way to save my photos.  It may be, but now I can't find them.  AGHHHH!

Who stole all my photos???

Well, I'm sure they are somewhere floating out in the universe.  If you find a bunch of pictures of a cute almost-one-year-old and a lot of quilts and quilt blocks please let me know.  :D

The Week of June 3, 2013
(in review)

1.  Work on hand finishing the bindings on some of the many quilts that are piled in my living room.

Only one finished binding this week but at least that is some progress.  

2.  Complete the first PQW Saturday Sampler block and attend the class this weekend.  

3.  Continue to work on the following Brody Projects.

Going Buggy
Hopscotch in Neutrals
Blue Dresden Plate Quilt
Roll Roll Cotton Boll
Lazy Sunday

I made a little progress on Going Buggy, Hopscotch in Neutrals and Roll Roll Cotton Boll.  I don't really have any pictures to show yet.

4.  Prepare the backing for the Heather Spence Spring Mystery Quilt to Benefit Cancer Patients.

I was hoping I would have received the backing I ordered this week but it still has not arrived.

5.  Bind the Pirate Tumbler Quilt that I just finished quilting on my longarm quilting machine, Annie.

I've attached the binding and label.  I will hand tack it this week.  It is a birthday present for my DGS Ryder.

6.  Bind the Heather Spence Fall Mystery Quilt to Benefit Cancer Patients that I just finished quilting on Annie.

The binding has been attached and the quilt has been added to my "Hand-Tack Binding" tower.

7.  Piece a batting for the 2012 NJ Shop Hop Quilt currently loaded on Annie.

I pieced a crazy large batting ... 95" X 95".

8.  Put the finishing touches on a special shirt I am making for Ryder to wear to his first birthday party.

The shirt is done.  I actually made it in two sizes because I wasn't sure which would fit the best.  I will show pictures next week after Ryder's birthday party.

9.  Work on the next block for the Pieceful Nights Quilt Along sponsored by Jo Kramer of Jo's Country Junction.

10.  Gather fabric and complete the first step of
 Christa's String of Pearls Quilt Along 

I've chosen to use a white background, navy blue frames and bright colors for the "pearls."  The first step required me to do all the cutting.  Step complete.

The Week of June 10, 2013

1.  Attend my DGS Ryder's First Birthday Party.

2.  Continue to work on hand tacking bindings.

3.  Continue to work on the following Brody Projects.

9.  Work on finishing the Building Blocks BOM that was sponsored by The Village Quilter in Mt Holly, NJ.

10.  Spend some QT with my DFIL, DH and DS for Father's Day.  This will be a very sad Father's Day for me but spending it with the wonderful fathers I still have in my life will make it easier.

Our Puppy, BRODY, has been a little under the weather lately.

We took him to the vet and they suspect a parasite.  They prescribed some medication for him to take as we await the results of the tests.  Thankfully he seems to be feeling a lot better.  He is back to his VERY energetic and healthy self.  So glad you're feeling better, Boy.

Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching!!!
