Progress here and there

The retreat allowed me to make a fair amount of progress and actually notch up some finishes.  I finished bitter almond and the Frond quilt while there.  I finished piecing Prism Star, and I also got the center of Barb's quilt done.  I still need to add borders to size it up to a king-sized for her.  I also spent a chunk of time putting together the blocks that the guild finished. I finished Bev's quilt shortly after, in time for Mom to take it off to Denver.  I'm still waiting for mom to send me pictures!  I got Quill done to give to a co-worker of mine who's retiring.  She's a fellow quilter, so I hope she appreciates it!  I delayed enough that I didn't get a good picture of it, either.

I dropped off the Frond quilt with them, and gave them another pattern suggestion, so we'll see if anything comes of that.

Since I have a whole pile of tops to be quilted and Natalie is using the long-arm, I've been working on sewing some clothing for me the past couple of weeks.  I took two days off before Memorial day weekend, and spent a chunk of time just cutting out garments.  (I spent a lot more time pulling weeds, but that's another story!)  I cut out a Washi dress, and am about halfway through that.  I put together a dress as well, from a pattern I've used before and like quite a lot.  I finished a simple tunic from Indygo Junction as well, and could see making a couple more of those, it's a quick and easy finish.  I have a dress cut out as well, which is really a wearable muslin for a lovely piece of linen I want to use.  I want to cut out a couple more pieces as well.  I'm trying to focus on summer items, though, and several of my planned pieces are more fall/winter.  I also struggle in that I like wearing knits but i like sewing wovens.  I suppose I should practice sewing the knits, more.  I love my serger, but I'm still learning on the coverstitch machine.

A few new things sneaking on to my list as always.
