What's On the Agenda

Well the kids are in school.  And I must say, I am loving the regular routine :)  I love spending oodles and oodles of time together in the summer but I sure love the day to day  dependable routine that is school :)  And my third started Kindergarten yesterday afternoon which means he isn't so lonely during nap time anymore.  (He was really missing his brother and sister.)  It also means that nap time is now completly interruption free.  Oh, I am so excited, sewing machine here I come :)

So, what's at the top of the list for this week??

First off, I need to finish up this little beauty for my niece.  (Don't you just love Little Black Dress!!)  I have the blocks all made I just need to sew them together, border it, baste it, quilt it, and bind it :)  We are visiting for labor day so the goal is to have that all done by Friday :)  I think I can, I think I can, I think I can ;)

Then, next on the list is working on my Fab Little Quilt Swap project.  My partner loves a rainbow of colors so I think I will be digging through my new scrap bin drawers :)

And I will be using this little template to aid in my creation.  If it comes out the way I envision it in my head, I will be totally excited :)

And lastly, If I really manage to be productive, I might just bust open my layer cake of Mama Said Sew  and get to some cutting :)  I am so excited to play with these prints!!  Love them!!!

  1. So happy for you that you have time to sew (and be organized!) How many in school for you?

  2. yay! my little guy is in school for 6 hours a day, plus two hours of bus time, so me and the little brother have tons of time on our hands. He sure misses his big brother!
    I got my EZ Dresden Challenge quilt done, and I need to make my own lists.
    I love the drawers idea for scraps by color...that's on my list too now. I had spill-over on my drawers for sewing patterns, so I was able to squeeze in an extra for that pile--looks better!

  3. It's lovely reading this. My youngest starts school next week and I feel the same way, its lovely to spend 6 weeks of summer with them but I'm welcoming the routine, and now I will be child free during school hours, it means more time for sewing, yay!

  4. Little Black Dress and Mama Said Sew - two of my favorites this year!

  5. Looks like your list is getting slightly smaller there! Hope it all goes to plan =D

  6. Well, I had a great long list for August and haven't managed to finish the first thing - but I have made some progress so I'll have to be content with that. Good luck with the list. Hope having the kids in school makes lots of time for you to bond with your sewing machine!

  7. Can't wait for the Little Black Dress reveal! :) You are going to be keeping busy for sure! My little one started KG this year, and it is so nice to have three hours to myself during the day. xo


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
