Moira: The Carousel is getting faster.....

School is fast coming to an end for this school year.   Doesn't seem possible that there are less than 3 weeks left and of course things are starting to come fast and furiously.....including  the first of my final exams this week (seniors are out next week).  At least I won't have to grade these because they are on the computer and automatically done.  =)

As for sewing.....This past week / weekend was focused on getting commissioned stuff done so that I can get it out of here and paid for.

The Green and Cream quilt has been totally finished and even named - something I rarely do.    Because of a comment that the lady who is buying it said, it is named "Springtime in Bloom".

Next finished was the final set of towels for a grad gift.   That has already been mailed off to my adopted niece.  

From the leftover strip set used on the bath towel, I made a mug rug.   It'll end up on sale at some point.

The blanks for the 4 leather knife sheaths that I'm working on have all been cut out and stained.   Am waiting for the bottle of finish coat to arrive so that I can seal them.  That should arrive tomorrow or Wed. if I have to pick it up at UPS.  Once the finish has been applied and dried then I can sew them together.   That should be done before this coming weekend is over.

I also managed to get two more scrub tops finished up.   Next up more of them!

And my fun right now is planning out a 3-wk trip that will take me to Indiana, Tennessee (gonna be visiting Susan!) and then down to the Dallas TX area.  Lots going on in this trip, and will write more about what I'll be doing as the trip happens.

That's a lot for one weekend. I just realized why I'm always so surprised when people say I do a lot. It's because you do in a weekend what it takes me all week to do! LOL All things are relative. =) And I'm looking forward to your June visit! I will even wash the sheets before then, and clear a path through the fabric boxes. =)

Yeah, I could never get that much done in the same time you do either! All the projects are great though, love those high heel shoes on the fabric, those towels should be very popular.

I'm so glad you are getting to do some traveling and visiting, have lots of fun.

I really like the green and cream quilt. The shoe fabric is fabulous, and those towels are sure to be enjoyed. Another busy weekend.

I wish I could be as organised as you to get so many projects done in a week. I get too easily distracted.
A lovely variety of projects again. Love the towels and mug rug.

Lists and lots of them keep me organized! But I do get distracted....frequently!

Hmmm, could it be that we're on the same carousel? LOL! Love all of you projects, especially the green and cream quilt.
