This was a great week. I was able to get my large Jelly Girl put all together. I started on Monday and finished it on Saturday. Yea me! I am back in the black. Next week will be pretty good too because I sewed up the backing and have the quilt on the frame. When I get the top quilted I will count the backing. 
Not a lot done on the double wedding ring quilt. I think the total for the last two weeks is 200 circles basted and 350 circles starched and pressed. I am going to make that quilt my focus for June. 

I also did some sewing that was above and beyond the call of duty. I altered the length of two pairs of dress slacks for my DS. He is headed off to Washington DC for a summer internship screening on Monday. I used to do a lot of clothing construction but not any more. Getting the hems sewn was almost more than I could stand but I persevered and they are finished. Yea! Too bad that won't make any difference in my stash report. 

I hope everyone has a great Memorial day celebration. I hope it warms up so we can grill. Last Monday we had snow. Crazy. I also hope I can sneak off and do some quilting. Will you?


  1. Nice busting! And the jelly girl quilt on the machine looks great. Happy sewing!

  2. Good job! The Jelly Girl quilt looks beautiful. I can hardly wait to see it in its entirety.

  3. I admire your work on the DWR. And I like that quilt on the machine. Clothing--I decided I might HEM or possibly PATCH, but I don't sew anything that isn't flat anymore. (Well, I try to get my quilts flat!) anytime the stash is break even or better, that's a good week.
