Design Wall Monday

Last week I was prepared for my Storm at Sea class before it started, just barley, but I made it.  You can read about my experience here.

This week has smaller goals as I have to perform my monthly cleaning (not fun, but needs to be done) and I will be away from my sewing machine during the weekend.

The first goal is to start cutting out step 3 of Royal Gardens, which is my Breakfast Club's assignment at my LQS.  I would like to try and get it done early, and not be doing it last minute like I have been a few times (okay, more like most of the time).

Second is to cut out this lovely baby quilt, which will be a simple rail fence quilt.  I am going to make it scrappy, so I need to cut each individual piece out and then start sewing.  I did not make any progress on this last three weeks and failed to work on it and get it to a flimsy stage by the end of September for my OMG.  So I really hope I can this week.

Third goal is to make progress on a surprise quilt.  I want to cut out the next section this week, but I can not do it while dear hubby is around, as it is a surprise for him.  Shhh, do not tell him.  (Due to this fact no pictures, I will share when I get it completed.  Hopefully before Christmas or maybe Valentines Day.)  I have not made progress on this item for the last three weeks.

While I am away from my machine this week, I am going to be working on this lovely cross stitch.  I have a long way to go, but if I can make some serious progress I will be very happy.

The last item is when I have spare time in the evening, which is to finish knitting this afghan.  I have about 6 rows left, maybe 9 depending upon size.  I have a deadline (even though it keeps changing!), and I'm close to getting it done.

My heart goes out to everyone involved in the terrible destruction and life changing events last night in Las Vegas.  I will be praying, but also be thankful to all of the first responders both on duty and off duty who helped so many people last night.

I'm excited to see what everyone else is working on!
