Last week was a success! I love it when I complete all the items on my list. (Let's ignore the fact that their were only 2.)
I'm leaving on my annual trip to Michigan this week and I have a lot to do before Thursday:
My list (Edit: since I forgot to publish this post yesterday, I've already completed some of the items on my list:) :

Last week I reorganized my to-do list for the rest of July due to a secret project that I will share later this summer. Long story short, I was originally scheduled to complete this project in June, but it got pushed back. Not a big deal, although the next several days will be jam packed since I need to complete this project before I leave for Michigan a week from tomorrow..
Even with restructuring my list, I was able to get a few items from last week completed:
This week's list is short & sweet:

Last week I completed 4 of the 5 items on my list:
Happy Independence Day, Y'all!
I've been reasonably productive lately:
This spring I've been struggling to get in as much sewing time as I'd like. Between my travel plans and other commitments, it's been difficult to get things done. Luckily, I'll be in town for the next month and have cleared my calendar as much as possible in an attempt to finish some things.
I did finish something. I finally got the ombre triangle quilt top done. (Don't look too closely, some of the points aren't exactly what I'd call perfect!) Now I just need to decide on backing and binding fabrics. I don't have anything on hand that I really WANT to use; I do have a couple of things that would work, but I'm kind of blah about them. Since I need to catch up on commissioned work, I think I'll hold off on that. Maybe something will catch my eye on the sale pages. Otherwise, it's that Windham wide back text print with all the color names.
FIFTY YEARS! Can you even imagine? Not having gotten married until the age of 36, and being married less than eight years myself, I can barely imagine a 20th anniversary, let alone a 50th. It's definitely a milestone worth celebrating, So when my sister reached out about having a quilt made for her in-laws big day, I was thrilled!
.We had a blast in Atlanta visiting with my parents and going to see the Braves - even though they lost...and lost badly at that. SunTrust Park, the new stadium, is amazing and I honestly don't think there's a bad seat in the house. We had spectacular seats, thanks to my brother, and the weather was perfect. We ended the trip with a delicious meal at Camp's Kitchen & Bar where I had what was quite possibly the best grilled cheese sandwich ever.
Since I was out of town for a few days, I didn't get as much quilty stuff done as I'd hoped.
Before I get to my list, I wanted to share the details of the Knoxville MQG's upcoming quilt show:
The worst thing about commissioned work is that I rarely get to see the recipients receive their quilts. This time, however, I was lucky enough to be there when one of my recent finishes was given to a lovely pair of newlyweds.
I've been very bad about updating this blog. I blame it entirely on being overwhelmed with projects and then because I was at the beach. I think I needed those days in The Outer Banks to clear my head. It was good to step away from it all and focus on sun, sand, and family instead of quilts, quilts, and more quilts.
