Design Wall for Week 16 - 04-21-14

OK - PART of what I have is from last week - BUT it's the BINDING that needs to be done!  Part of what I have on here will possibly be done on retreat this weekend (namely all the piecing!)! And what I do today/tonight I am cheating on (thank you sick machine last week!) and will post on my LAST week's Ta-Da post (going out later today - as late as I can get it! LOL)

Now - DON'T start laughing!  Or else you'll be running like crazy to that little room out back!

BINDING (machine sewn!)
Bodacious baby quilt

It's All about Hearts table runner

Optical Illusions table runner - aka my St. Paddy's day t. r.

Passover table runner

MACHINE QUILTING Binding is NEXT week!
(hand sewing - will NOT be finished this time)


Hexies for Thanksgiving - for dil table centerpiece
 (Free Motion Quilting Foot)
Wendy's Apple Cider quilt - aka Sweet and Sassy by Evelyn Sloppy
will do stippling, I think

Snow people Table runner -
center - swirlies - like a good strong breeze.
Border I will probably grid
Binding is NEXT week!

Mini Twister - stippling with FMQ

(Walking Foot)

Cinnamon Stix - Haven't the FAINTEST idea how I will quilt this!
Probably big X-es and stripes!

New Year's Mystery table topper - sort of a sunburst beginning from around the center SITD square

Nines and Dashes -
I think a skinny border and more of the purple are in order as far as borders.
Will work on this probably retreat weekend.  Quilting will be Xes

Thanksgiving table runner
Center - Xes and long lines or grid on sides


PIECING
Underground RR -
for the retreat -
needs sashing, borders

Double Duty quilt - I think I have all the blocks.
But you never know (unless you're organized!  I'm NOT!)
Needs sewing together (quarters, then halves, etc.) borders - and a LOT of prayers!


SEWING (In my spare non-existent moments - and I DO need this!  Trust me!)
No picture here - but am hopeful I will have several blouses CUT out - 
and maybe in first stages of being sewn together.  
Am saving this project for next Monday!

Retreat weekend #1

I'm scheduling this weekend as a retreat weekend - for me and anyone who wants to join me on Skype!

It starts Friday - and will continue through to next TUESDAY afternoon!

At least that's the game plan!  Anyone who complains about the dust, I will give my dustrag to!

Underground RR - needs sashing, borders, quilting and binding.
NOT planning on quilting just yet!

Jamestown Landing - my LE - BUT it also needs the main blocks!

Arizona Skies - aka Tequila Buzz - it's just that I like the colors - sort of like the colors in AZ!
Needs LOTS of putting together, borders and binding - not to count that at least one border is - gasp - pieced!

                  Open Sew projects

                  This is for Jamestown Landing - my current Leader-Ender project.
                  NOT sure I will take this one however.  See note on Charlotte's baskets!

                  Charlotte's baskets - I'm going to be doing this in a variety of pastels -
                  or at least that's the game plan. MOSTLY though this Open Sew -
                  I want to work on the baskets themselves.  The reason for
                  possibly no Jamestown Landing is because I do have a lot of the pastel string blocks to do!

                  Goals for Week 15 - WB 04-13-14

                  On the search for GREENS - and blues, pinks, whites, and yellows!!!

                                Design Wall for Week 15 - 04-14-14

                                BINDING
                                I'm hopeful that today I will have finished both the Passover table runner as well as the table runner for St. Patrick's day - Optical Illusions.  If so - then I'll replace this part with pix of each.

                                QUILTING
                                STILL on the agenda - Passover Table Runner (ready to go) and Optical Illusions - both of which I hope to finish today!!!!


                                Should I finish this - then I'll probably post a REVISED design wall (machine did NOT work last week - blast it anyway!) and the following hopefully will be targeted - All About Hearts and the Snow People being worked on first THEN the Halloween and Thanksgiving table runners.





                                PIECING  - BORDERS
                                Celtic Solstice is up first - and just needs the borders attached.  Hopefully today.
                                Should this happen then the rest of this week I want to work on Holy Toledo, then on the April and May table runners (which I don't have pix of) as well as catch up on my blocks for my class - Toes in the Sand!

                                Design Wall for Week 14 - 04-07-14

                                (mostly because I belong to Stashbusters UFO challenge - 
                                and - ULP! - I moved up to #5 on the list!)

                                Bo-dacious

                                Snowpeople table runner

                                AND FOR MY PIECING PLEASURE....
                                Leader Ender string blocks for Jamestown Landing -
                                so far I have 50 something.  Need 168.

                                Celtic Solstice - STILL need to put on borders.
                                Having problems - but should have fixed by weekend - hopefully!

                                Holy Toledo - Somehow I think I need to count -
                                this is NOT all the blocks there are supposed to be!  Hmm!

                                            Menues and recipes for my dd Wendy

                                            Rhubarb - Man! sure wish it was time for Rhubarb pie!
                                            I've been having horrible problems sending email to my dd in Canada (is this a Yahoo-ey problem???) and this from my NEW email addy (yafooey refuses to send my "clues" to the email I so blithely forgot to write down in that safe place I detest so much!) so yesterday on Skype she asked me to post on her blog.

                                            The first is from Leanne Ely's Saving Dinner - which is a cookbook/menu cookbook/lifestyle eating plan that I dearly love!

                                            Fish Nicoise - this I had last night - DELICIOUS!

                                            3 t Tabasco sauce
                                            3 T soy sauce, low sodium
                                            6 fish fillets
                                            1 T butter
                                            1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
                                            1/2 cup Kalamata olives
                                            1 t garlic powder (I forgot to tell you this - and forgot it last night too!)
                                            Salt and pepper to taste

                                            In a small shallow bowl, combine Tabasco and soy sauce.  Dip the fish fillets on both sides and set aside.  

                                            Meanwhile, in a skillet, heat butter over medium high heat.  Add fish and cook 3 - 4 minutes on each side.  Remove the fish, set aside and keep warm.

                                            Add the tomatoes and olives to the pan and saute for 1 minute.  Add garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.  Top the fish with tomato/olive mixture and serve.

                                            Serving suggestions" Baked red potatoes, steamed broccoli, and cauliflower.

                                            I don't remember the one I promised last week - BUT menu last week was this: (let me know which and what you are wanting recipes for)

                                            Tuna fusilli (quite good), Skillet chicken with Spinach (quite good), Sweet bean burritos - pretty good - but then I like refried beans!, Crock-pot corn chowder - very good.

                                            Earlier this week - I had Romano turkey burgers, Dijon Maple chicken.  Was SUPPOSED to have crock bean soup with kale - which, btw, is quite good - had it before - but I burned the daylights out of the beans so that is out until I get back to the store!

                                            Actually - I am trying to post weekly menues on my blog - most are from one cookbook or another - let me know if any sound interesting.

                                            Love you and sure wish I had that magic wand to make you feel better!
