Quilter's Accountability Report - March 9, 2011

Well, I only had one thing on my list last week, and I didn't get it done, lol.

I was busy this week, though.  I got quite a few blocks finished and I started on a new quilt.

We're in the process of moving things around in the house.  We've decided to dedicate a room in the house to homeschooling.  I think that will be much better since the "method" we have now is starting to break down a bit!

Since all the kiddos are in school now, it's harder and harder for them to keep their school supplies together.

Several months ago, we moved our family room downstairs into the newly finished basement.  So, our front room has stood empty for these months.  The kids have been using it as a playroom.

It's a GREAT room because there's a huge bay window that faces south and also a west facing window, so there's so much sun.

We thought about getting some furniture and making it into a "sitting room," but that's just not us.  We rarely have people over and when we do, it's homeschool families, so the kids run around outside and we moms just sit at the table and talk, lol.

So, now we're making it into a homeschool room and I'm REALLY excited.

But, it's going to be a bit of a shuffle of things as we gather up all the homeschool supplies, put up the white board, and organize the bookshelves.

So, I'll probably not have my basting party this week, either.

BUT...I am planning on working on High Cotton whenever I can.  I bought some more pink and brown yesterday.  It's SO purty!

Here are my two favorite pieces.

And here's part of a block with those fabrics.

So, here's my list for this week.

  1. Continue to work on High Cotton.
  2. Start my brown monochromatic quilt.  (I had an idea for it while I was lying awake in bed this morning!)
  3. Next Layer Cake Quilt along block.
  4. Finish and send of Block Swap Adventure block.
Make sure you check out Bari's blog to see how everyone else did this week.

Sounds as if your life is very busy. Just noticed the temp on your sidebar and it says -3. Brrrr! Your new fabrics are lovely! And your block is beautiful.

I love those fabrics! And the quilt is going to be beautiful!

Personally, I can't wait to see your brown monochromatic quilt after seeing your purple one. That turned out lovely.

Your new homeschooling classroom sounds divine. I think it would almost be necessary to have a separate room - we get school stuff lost in the shuffle now and it is just stuff the kids bring home! Will you post pictures when you are done?

You have a busy and productive week in front of you. Way to go!
