1. Quilt repair

I recommended two patches, one on each side, and re-quilting with a closely matching thread.
I hand-appliqued the patches, adding a small piece of cotton batting to replace the batting that had slushed out during its last machine washing. Then I added the running stitches using four strands of embroidery thread. She picked it up this morning on the way to their camp for the weekend. Check!
2. Summer shorts
I promised summer shorts for Caki and Sopie a few weeks ago. I brought two pairs to them not long after making the promise. We decided that they were just a bit too long, so I've taken an inch off the leg length. Hopefully, that's going to be the right size.
|My favorite pair...love those butterflies!|
|Five for the Rayne girls|
|Sophie's three have lots of large |
creatures and zoo animals
|Ready to mail tomorrow|
3. Sewing quilt labels
Now why I would do this, I can't say. I did not realized that I'd gotten so far behind. Well, I knew I had a quilt or two that needed the labels stitched on, so I proceeded to figure out which one or two, perhaps, needed labels stitched on. I knew I'd made the labels and pinned them on, just not finished that last step.
Guess what? There were seven (7!) waiting for labels! Unbelievable! When you start a bad habit, said habit can really take hold. But I've broken the chain and stitched them all--yes, every single one. The picture above is of the last three, which I stitched down today. The picture below is of all seven quilts completed!
And this picture is of the baby quilts that are complete, labeled, and put away. The larger quilts are in a different place, but put away. Check!
That baby bed rail (thanks Pinterest for the idea) is from the grandchildren. When I saw it dragging around in Rory's shed, I snatched it up. The other rail is hanging in his shed so I couldn't take it. Rory added S hooks and hangs tools on it.
What chores makes you feel good when you get them checked off a list?
