I Am Slowly Going Crazy

So that is pretty much how my weekend started! To begin, Saturday morning I started with teaching my Sampler Class that I teach here in my home. One of the two blocks taught that day was the Crazy Patch block. I figured, hmmm the best way to really learn how to make this block is to demonstrate by making one myself.. Welllll that one block ended up turning into 12 15" x 15" blocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yep I told you I was going crazy! I decided I would make up a crazy patch winter themed lap quilt. The main focal fabric has all kinds of different colourful mittens on it! I have the blocks made, I now have to sit down and machine embroider all the pretty stitches with my embroidery threads. I think I will do that on Thursday night.

I will use all these crumbs another time for a Christmas/winter quilt!

On Sunday I managed to both play in the kitchen and play in my sewing room. With the help of two kitchen timers, set up by my sewing table, I managed to make 2 chocolate zucchini cakes, one loaf of raisin/oatmeal bread, classic potatoes au gratin, and a tuna casserole. While things were cooking and baking I cut the remaining 3 Christmas tree skirts and started the initial assembly of them and I cut out 8 sets of binding for the 8 tree skirts I'm going to sell this year.

Tonight, I had my kitchen timer set up again while another loaf of bread was baking. This time I made a cracked wheat loaf. I think I'll make a dried cranberry/almond bread tomorrow evening. So while the bread was doing it's thing in the machine I managed to bind the remaining 2 of the 4 pumpkin/rooster placemat set I am keeping for myself AND I started quilting the first tree skirt.

WHEW!!!!!!! I'm poooped and I think with that I am going to call it a night!

Tomorrow I will try to finish quilting 2 tree skirts.

Til Next Time

Quiltingly Yours
