So much for my sew-in

My intention was to have a retreat tomorrow – a sew-in- in honor of the last day of National Volunteer week but I have some *house* things to take care of AND Keith is leaving Sunday – we’ll spend most of the next 2 weeks apart so I’ll make some time for him tomorrow AND hopefully will load another HeartStrings quilt on the longarm and start the quilting….we’ll see how it goes.

The good news is that I met all my goals for the week already – 3 HeartStrings tops quilted and the binding on a 4th HeartStrings quilt finished. I hope some of you were able to work on donation quilts with me this week.

  1. Wow, Mary–that’s a lot of quilting in one week. Do you have any precautions or things that you do or don’t do to prevent fatigue, muscle strain, etc? I finished a kingsize last week–a 2 week project. Fatigue was my companion. Of course, it was more of a problem because I was still trying to regain my strength after a bout with bronchitis, but even so I’m always looking for ways to “quilt smart” so I can quilt more! 🙂

  2. That’s GREAT, Mary! I was able to quilt and bind two donation quilts. Enjoy your day with Keith 🙂

  3. I am always in awe of your productivity! Enjoy your day with Keith, I’m sure you’ll find plenty of quilting time over the next few weeks! 🙂 ~Jessica

  4. Spend your time with Keith … we can have a sew in another time. How is Chesty this morning? Tippy got out in the pouring rain … silly dog.
