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!
