Well ~ the first week of the new year is offically behind us ... have you been crafty??

Hopefully you have been able to find something crafty and creative to work on, just have fun with whatever it is ~ life is too short to take EVERYTHING serious!!!

I haven't made as much progress on the Sock Monkey baby quilt as hoped. The top is all sewn together & is VERY CUTE, but I still have 2 more embroideries to do. My goal was to have the top completed by tonight INCLUDING the embroidery. OK so THAT isn't gonna happened. But here is what MY weekly craftiness looks like ~





Pretty darn cute don't ya think???!!!

This week is going to be a busy one for me, I have a co-worker following me home tomorrow night. We are going to start designing a signature quilt for her wedding in April. We need to come up with a design so I can get the amounts of fabric figured so she can start looking for what she wants. This will probably take at least 2 hours... maybe more.
I am HOPING to get another monkey done on Tuesday evening.
Haircut on Wed after work, LOL I needed it at least 3 weeks ago!!!!
Maybe the last monkey on Thursday evening??? I need to have them all finished by Saturday because I am meeting another co-worker at Joann's.
Remember the Pooh quilt?? Maria is the one that I helped with that quilt, she wants to make a quilt for friends who are having their first baby. The main color in the nursery is ORANGE!! I found some cute fabric at Joann's a while back (OK so it was not long after we moved to Utah 6 years ago) It's a really cute print, yellow background with orange, bright lime green, yellow and purple. The orange green yellow and purple are giraffes, and elephants ~ WAY CUTE!!! Anyhow while we are at Joann's getting the fabric for that quilt I will be looking for the backing for the Sock Monkeys. My GOAL for next weekend is to have the Monkeys loaded on the long arm by Saturday night and get it quilted on Sunday ~ OK so it is a lofty goal... but it is what it is right???!!!

Well I need to get to bed so I can get up and head to work. So much to do and so little time to get it all done :-)

Have a great week, and let me hear from you ~ what you are you working on? Do you have any questions for me?

Help me out here friends ~ participate ;-)

Take care, and as always.. Find something crafty that you love ~ and get creative!

Mary
