This is as close to a design wall as I have gotten this week. I put these three mug rugs on the HQ and have them mostly quilted. I stopped a couple of days ago because I began suffering from thread breakage and since I couldn't immediately figure out how to correct the problem. I'll work on that this week.
I have quite enjoyed making these "NO COFFEE!" rugs but I am ready to move on to other things.
I was going to take them to show at the next guild meeting but then I thought, "what would I do if they wanted me to make some for the quilt show in November?" So I think I will just pack them up and keep quiet about them.
Sunday I finally got my new baby settled in the studio and even played with it, a little. I spent some time going over some of the things I learned in my lesson last Thursday and was really pleased that I remembered as much as I did.
And even though I have said that I am cutting back on my knitting time, I have started a sweater. This cardigan has only one closure and I as it is knit from the top down, I have already made the button hole. So far I have been able to follow the pattern but as you can see I still have a long way to go.
When I finish the mug rugs I am ready to load and quilt the boots quilt for DH. I also need to make several quilt labels (I usually do them with machine embroidery). I have 3 BOMs to do this week in order to be caught up.
I also have a little computer problem. Every day or two I can't connect to the internet because the driver that makes that happen disappears. I have had to recover it over and over but can't seem to figure out how to stop it from happening. So sometime this week I hope to be able to contact Microsoft and see if they can help me.
Wow, that all sounds a little daunting, doesn't it? Oh, well, I'll just get done what I can and what ever doesn't get done I'll assign it to next week.
I'll be linking up with Patchwork Times on Monday: if you pop on over there you will get to see some beautiful work. Have a great week, Gari
