Labor Day

This weekend was very busy with family events and I'm happy to say that the hubs is gone (probably to a movie or the bookstore), the kids are asleep and I can go upstairs guilt-free to work on quilts.

I have to work on organizing my paperwork for Quilts of Valor, though.  We're gearing up to award 38 QOVs to the WWII, POWs and a Holocaust survivor at a local retirement village in about 2 months.  I also have my regular list of people who need QOVs, too.  Time to get a friend to embroider some labels so that these quilts can be awarded.

I also have a couple of QOVs that are going to be in an exhibit at the Eisenhower Library in Abilene, KS.  They're a two of my favorites.  After the exhibit, they'll be awarded to Kansas soldiers.  This is a yearly thing that the Eisenhower will be doing every year on Veterans' Day.  This year is the first time they've done it.  If you're interested, let me know.  I have some brochures and info on deadlines (October something) along with size requirements and other details.

So my sewing time will be spent doing paperwork today, but I might sneak in a minute or two to work on my scrappy mug rug.  Got one side finished, but I would like to make it reversible, so I need to get cracking on the back.

Leave a comment and let me know what you've been up to!

I've been working on my hex quilt today. I'm down to less than 100 loose ones. I keep telling myself I can get it finished by the meeting this week, but it probably won't happen.......
