Lol, I love how she says I gave her homework - like I MADE her!

i did give her options - make kits to bring back, make tops, or whatever.  And there is no deadline.  If Mishii ever gets to spend time at home and not work, she will work on some of them.

. I am just gonna suck it up soon and go do 4 boxes of books and sort some fabric from that pile I was gifted.

Books aren't really that difficult to sort through and since you know you are getting rid of most, it should be easy.  Just don't stop to read one.wink

Going through the fabric may give you some inspiration to actually sew.  Hope you got there yesterday.

I'm not working on anything right now, but I did buy a LOT of 1800's and shirting fat quarters from a person on Etsy. They just came. Very fast shipping. Got to keep the economy going!!

Finally found the mojo to finish these two quilts, and now all the beds in my home are quilt supplied.  The first one I called "Rainbows" and quilted quotes about rainbows in the solid squares.  The second one I called "Roy G. Biv" and doodle  quilted things a child might draw in the solid blocks.  Theses look square but the are not, they are not quite twin size as they were made for the day bed and trundle under it in the "grandkids room.

Those are absolutely super-duper quilts for beds in the grandkids' room, just wonderful for the kids to enjoy.

Well I got the sewing stuff set up yesterday. I did go thru fabric and will have a ton to donate once the world gets going again.

Today I hauled the iron and board upstairs and finally got the pants laid out. I took some photos and posted on my blog of the set up. Then I got busy and finally got the side seams all sewn up and pressed. Next step is the belt carriers and waistband so hopefully tomorrow, maybe even later today.

The sun finally came out here, it was a very cold cloudy morning here.

On the book pruging..............on many books they are Mark's or stuff we share so trying to get his input as well. I don't just want to toss out everything because we do enjoy reading and a small well curated library would be nice. That slows down the whole thing. Did not get any done today but that is ok.
