Can You Chew All That You Bite Off?

I go to a local church that has a sew-in twice a month. The ladies there are mostly local guild members but some are invited guests of those ladies. I think this is the fourth month I have gone and I really enjoy the companionship.

I hoped to accomplish a lot. I took several projects with me. I wanted to:

- trim dd's quilt so that I can hand tack the binding on. Didn't do that.
- make the binding for my Aunt's quilt - DONE
- cut out a mystery quilt I am testing - DONE
- cut out and sew pieces for some underpants I am customizing for ostomy bags - cutting done
- cut and sew some fleece for baby blankets - got the cutting done

I had hoped to get a little more sewing done on some of these things but for 3 hours I think I accomplished a great deal!

I have this coming week off. Let's see what I can get done. My list includes sewing, cooking, decluttering and organizing tasks.

I would just love uninterrupted time for just sewing....that would be great fun! Hope you get everything done that you want to in this coming week.

That's why I put in the effort to lead my small group of quilters (there are 9 of us that meet in a church once a month). Having six hours of sewing time (minus lunch and admin time) means you can really get things done, and more importantly, can't walk away from them when the going gets touch. Plus it's about the only sewing I get done these days.

I'm so glad you're coming to the group. Maybe next time both of us can get more done. I really enjoy this group of ladies and I like visiting as much as sewing. I hope you get lots done this week. Have a great Thanksgiving and let me hear from you soon.
