Goals for the week ending March 18, 2017

So, I've been trying to post this since Saturday. Better late than never, I guess.

Goals for the week ending March 18, 2017

1. Redwork - No progress 

- quilt row one 

2. Sheep

- continue stitching - Block finished

- start sewing strips together - no progress

3. Welcome

- draw off design - Not done, but significant progress made, I just have the branches on the tree to finish (right side of photo).

- mount on scroll frame - nope, not done

4. Easter

- draw off designs - Done

- begin stitching - Yes, I started :)

5. "He is Risen"

- finish as a wall hanging - not done, but progress made.

Quite a few years ago, my Aunt Rose promised me her sewing machine after she passed away. Promise was kept and it came in a really nice cabinet. I hadn't realized that the machine was portable, a Singer or so very heavy !!!

My hope is that it will be heavy enough to handle machine quilting. I took it to a local quilt shop that has a service center. They are going to clean and oil it and then we'll see what I can do with it. I don't know how long it sat for my Aunt. She ended up being blind toward the end, so I know she wasn't using it. Her younger brother handled her estate and when my mom could claim it, she did and brought it to me. It will be a couple of weeks before I get it back from the shop. I'll keep you posted.

On to this week's goals:

1. Growing Up QAL
- make block
- email completion

2. Easter stitchery
- finish stitching first block (of three)

3. Welcome
- finish tracing design
mount on frame

4. Redwork
- quilt row one

5. He is Risen
- finish wall hanging

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a week filled with creativity and productivity.

Your bunny is beautiful! I like the welcome stitchery, too. I'll bet Aunt Rose's machine will be great for the quilting!
