My progress was less than stellar last week. I sewed every day, but most days I only got in my 30 minutes. I am feeling better and so is Sharla, in fact she was feeling well enough to have her second cataracts surgery yesterday. I mainly sewed on my geese and crosses, and the good news is with what I got done, I'm pretty close on both of them to having enough to start putting together the tops.
I started the week with working on my flying geese, I worked both Monday and Tuesday sewing them together, but I didn't take photos both days, because it was boring piles of sewn geese. I did take a picture of the pile at one point on Tuesday.
On Wednesday I finished sewing the geese into actual geese. They still have to be sewn into groups of four, but I love once they are at this stage. I want to do more flying geese quilts in the future, there is just something about them that makes me happy.
On Thursday I sewed the geese into pairs. I had planned on getting them sewn into fours, but by the time the day was over I just didn't have it in me to do more. I try to sew at night before bed, but when I am really tired, sometimes it is a struggle.
Friday was very very very slow for work, and so I carried my phone into the sewing room and went to work on the geese. I got them sewn into fours and ironed. Woohoo, got my 30 minutes in early and so that meant I could just veg after work.
With the batch of geese done, Saturday I moved on to crosses. I had cut a bunch earlier in the month but needed to cut some backgrounds. I randomly pulled some of my background fabrics and cut them and then started sewing. I love these blocks because there are lots of places to easily stop along the way.
On Sunday I started putting the rows together. I got the all of this batch done, and considered going on and finishing them, but I needed to do some mundane things like clean/laundry. If I were to win the lottery, I would hire someone to do the cleaning so I could sew, sew, sew.
So that wraps up my week last week. Although it wasn't lots and lots of progress, I feel good. I have to do an inventory on my geese and crosses to see how many I need to do to complete each of the quilts. I don't know that I can finish them this month, but I will say I've made some great progress this month. Today I'm linking up with Sarah @ Berry Barns Designs.
