Monday Madness

I'm hoping to get a lot accomplished today. Saturday night I finished the first dozen pincushions. This morning I started stuffing and shutting 17 more. I think I'll get another batch going as well.


I finally basted the next topper and will probably start on the quilting today. I should also try to quilt a motif per day on the flower quilt so I can get it finished. Usually I'm really excited once I get to that outer border, but the markings are so hard to see that it's hard to get motivated to work on it. I may try to finish the next topper, too, as all I have left are the leaves and yo-yos.


I have dishes soaking in the sink, I have to do our business billing and some general straightening but other than the "usual" upkeep and a load or two of laundry I should be fairly free. Our older two play softball and with Ruthie getting older and a little more predictable I decided we'd go to as many games as we can...unfortunately today is cold and breezy and it's supposed to rain, so I'll be keeping her home in all likelihood this evening.


Ruthie loves her magnadoodle! She can often be found drawing on it and her scribbles are now more deliberate lines and shape looking objects. She's a little out of sorts this morning and right now is watching her favorite movie, I'm hoping that it helps her mood some and my smiling girl returns.

Our oldest daughter, Rebekah, is in cosmetology school Tuesday through Saturday each week. Friday is prom, so she is doing a test run on her sister's hair today, they are in the kitchen at the moment trying a new updo. She'll wash it out in a few hours because she doesn't want her boyfriend to see it before Friday, when we'll drive out to the school so her sister can do it for her for the big event.

So now it's time to run, I'm hoping to have most of the chores and work of the day finished by noon so I can concentrate on my sewing projects for the remainder of the day (well...when not making dinner and busy with the kiddos!)
Happy Quilting!
Sue and Ruthie

You'll be sick of those blinking pincushions before you're through - lol ! I bet you'll get them all done in time though.

I just got caught up on your posts. Go Ruthie go! Great to hear of her progress lately! The pincushions look great!
