This and that
School is out for summer break. For us that means 6 weeks. Our district uses a 'year round' calendar. I'm using the plural tense because my layoff notice was rescinded. It was actually rescinded 3 weeks ago but I didn't make the news widely known because a few other coworkers did not receive the same news. My fingers are still crossed for them because we need everybody!
The last day of school was also the first day of the longest Padres homestand of the year. Wheeeee..... but that's ok, working one job per day is a piece of cake after the perspective of two. My plans for the break? Some gardening, visiting with family, reading, going to a Rush concert with S & S and lots and lots of quilting. I'm getting quite a backlog of finished flimsies.... time to make some backs and get those puppies quilted. A couple are gifts but I might be offering a few for sale. Here are some recent finishes.....
#1 is a variation of McGuffey by Carrie Nelson (Miss Rosie's Quilt Co) using some Clermont Farms fat qtrs I found for cheap on ebay. *grin* I did add a couple additional fabrics from my stash so by the time you factor in backing and binding too, my stash numbers will look better.
Next is the finished top using the Democracy line from Moda. I don't know if it's a pattern.... I probably saw a picture somewhere and tweaked it to make it my own. This was a ufo from 3-4 years ago and will be for sale soon.
And this is what is currently on the design wall... a fun, contemporary blue and green string quilt because my string bin runeth over. There is nothing like a mindless project from time to time.
