Make-A-List Monday

I know today is Tuesday already and I missed my Monday post. :-(  Work was a bit crazy on Monday as our business recently instituted daily 1/2 meetings to go over scheduled items.  As such, it meant a lot of leg work ahead of time to get updates on everything.

Not a whole lot of sewing happened last week or over the weekend, but a few interesting things.  We went to a wood working show on Sunday in Saratoga Springs, NY.  The pieces of work there were amazing and some were very creative.  Someone had made a chair that was finished except one leg, which was still the original wood with markings on it for the final shape. The arms of the chair held a small hammer and chisel and the "hands" held the tools on the unfinished leg.  Essentially, it was depicting a chair making itself. :-)

Here are two pictures of items from the show.  There was a lot more items there, but I didn't take any real pictures.

They did have a children's "toy factory", which was definitely worth the admission price.  Our niece and her dad came with us and they built a small car as well as a tool box.  After watching our niece hammer a nail in with about 50 strikes, her dad helped out on the next ones so it didn't take quite so long.

So here's the list from last week:
1. Finish quilting the outer border on Lone Star.  DONE!  Finally!
2. Quilt the white sections of the center star on Lone Star.  I changed how I'm quilting the center, so its just stitch-in-ditch.  I'll take some photos a little later this week and get them posted.
3. Post pictures of pool table being assembled. DONE!
4. Fold fabrics from winter sampler and put on bookshelf. Not started.

I'm hoping to get back into the groove for quilting.  I haven't had a lot of extra time lately, but I'm hoping with this little break that I'll be more energized into getting the quilting done.  It will be nice once the Lone Star quilt is done and I think all the work will be worth it in the end.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Happy Crafting!
