HI HO, HI HO, it's off to work we go...

Nato has the most retarded work schedule ever, today. He had to be at work from 8:30am -11:30am. Then he had to go back to work at 2pm and work until 10pm.



Anyways...done ranting......where was I?????

Oh, yeah!!

I am gonna sew another row to Hannah & Jason's quilt, then work on Meme's, cause her quilt top is almost done, and her pieces are already all cut out.

We'll see what I get done from there, cause tonight is Uncle Larry's b-day party, and I'm going w/ the kids.

After all...

I'm not very happy w/ myself today.

I had 5 projects I wanted to get at least SOME work done on, and I ended up only working on Hannah & Jason's.

Instead of working on the others in the afternoon, evening, & night, I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer instead.

So, for the rest of the weekend, these projects are my plan:

We'll see how much work I end up getting done, and I will post again @ the weekend's end.

Today's To-Do

Today, I am planning to work on:
(though not necessarily in this order)

An update for 1st quilt!

This is what I've accomplished over the last few days.
I still have quite a bit to go as it is obviously still small, and I want it to be queen-sized.

Nato's first FNSI!!

While I was working on my first quilt, Nato was working on Michelle's quilt.

We only have to add horizontal sashing to a few more rows, then the top will be finished.

Friday Night Sew-In!!

Last night was my first official FNSI that I've been a part of. Nato, my husband, joined me and we stayed up until 3 am working on various projects including Michelle's quilt (
and my first ever quilt that I had started in June 2008.

I finally started adding more to my first quilt last night. I have collected a wide range of different colored and textured fabrics for this quilt.

Here it is so far...

Fastest quilt I have EVER made!!

I also made an entire baby quilt similar to Allissa's (, but longer.

I started choosing fabrics, measuring & cutting @ 6:30am, and had the quilt completely finished by 9:58am.

Starting a business!!

Nato and I have been discussing it for a while now and we want to make Share Your Goodwill Quilts an actual business.

We are in the process of building a website for it, and even have a business PayPal account set up already.

As of right now, we need to figure out pricing for the quilts, and get some made to sell.

I will keep you updated and will post the link to our website, once we finish it.
