Sunday's Quiltathon status and Stash Report

I actually SET my alarm for this AM so I could get cracking bright-n-early at quilting. Funny though, I snoozed for about 45 minutes anyway!
But by 8:00, I was rockin-n-rollin!

Row 1:
8:00 am - Started cutting template pieces for February's BOM (**GASP**)! Yes, TEMPLATE pieces will be coming in February, ladies!
9:15 am - Trimmin' off some dogears
10:30 am - Sneak-peak at one of the completed February BOM.
10:35 am - Cutting HST's for the 2nd February BOM
Row 2:
10:53 am - Cutting complete -- time to sew some HST's
11:10 am - Pieces pressed (yup ladies! ALL those pieces are going into ONE 12" block---and there are a few more than just these)
12:00 pm - Pulling out Steppin' Out - dyed. No WONDER I set this project aside---I only have a GaZILLION HST's to square up....
12:30 pm -- still squarin' up!
Row 3:
12:40 pm - pieces squared
12:45 pm - Adjourning to the upstairs to watch the game and press
1:12 pm - Pressed and dogears removed
1:30 pm - family arrived home and Caitlyn helped me put labels on my Swap Blocks
Row 4:
2:39 pm - Carolina Christmas Step 2 pieces cut
4:18 pm - Carolina Christmas Step 3 pieces cut
6:09 pm - Back downstairs, more CC pieces getting cut
7:02 pm - The status of my sewing table after calling it a night. CC Step #2's first part was just chain-pieced and will await pressing for tomorrow evening.

LOVELY LOVELY weekend! Sadly, YES, I DO have school tomorrow---we never have Martin Luther King day off----hm! Wonder why!

What a great day! I'm planning to spend Monday in my sewing room. Nice numbers! We're hanging tough, Amy!
Have a great week. Oh...and did I miss who won the quilt design contest? I better look again. I love that you do that each year.

What a great day! Love the play by play updates. February BOM has me a little frightened, but I'm hanging tough. Those are great colors for Carolina Christmas. I've resisted so far, but it would be the first Bonnie mystery that I am feeling sad about that. Great days progress. Have fun at work tomorrow. I promise I won't brag about my extra day off too much.

Another great sewing day! Looks like the BOM is getting more challenging already--templates! LOL.

What a wonderful day and productive too!

Looks like a wonderful productive day, but you're scaring me. I didn't know I would have to stretch, and it's only the second month.

Candace said...

Just kidding, I'll just have to keep reminding myself of one of my favorite sayings, "when you're green you're growing and when you're ripe you're rotten", looks like I could be growing. Thanks for coming up with this BOM. It's fun and educational.
