Well I have two deadlines.
1. My first MIL (from my first marriage) is turning 70 in March and DH and I have been invited to her birthday party. Although my first marriage ended 23 years ago I have remained close to Elaine through my children. I have known her since I was 14 years old, and married my first husband at the tender age of 17. Looking back I was just a baby, no wonder by age 25 I was single again. ( I have been married to current hubby 20 years this year).
Anyway, As you may know if you follow my posts I was making a jelly roll sample quilt in the lovely Butterscotch and roses range of fabrics with no real idea as to who it would be for. Since the invite arrived in the mail this week I now know exactly who will be the recipient of this quilt. MIL #1 Elaine.
So this week I have finished all 12 of the blocks for this quilt and patiently await my delivery of fabric for the sashings, border and backing from the Fat quarter shop.
Here are the completed 12 blocks pinned on my design wall. I will probably mix them up a bit to balance the colours out before I join them together.
The sewing deadline is to finish Ziva's carousel quilt. I purchased some batting for this (and for Elaine's jelly roll quilt) this week, and I plan to get this pinned ready for quilting later today. I have also ploughed on with sewing the scrolls on the Adelaide floral sampler and only have 2 left to go.
This morning the twins came to visit for Breakfast with Nanna Sue and Nonno, and by mid morning were all worn out. I couldn't resist this pic of them having a nap.
