Meeting Goals

I'm working hard to meet the weekly goals I set for myself.
First up is to finish the elk quilt.
Monday morning, bright and early, I set up my table and trimmed the quilt.

While the table was set up, 
 I cut out 2 Della Wallets.

Why not keep cutting, I have a retreat in a few weeks.
I took out a bin that said bright 2 1/2" strips to cut a new quilt.
When I opened the bin I found that I already had a plan for those strips.
I decided to go with that plan and cut and made kits for several blocks.
This will be a baby quilt when it is finished.
I even have the pretty pink flannel for the back.
May as well get the batting and binding ready too.
Where did that plan come from??? 

After dinner, I sewed the binding on and started stitching it down.
My goal was to stitch and watch The Voice.
I made it through the first hour before my eyes gave up.
This quilt will be finished soon.

I am going to start basting this quilt in a few minutes.
Yes, I am a bright and early person.

On a farm related note, 
I forgot to write about the new babies.
Friday, April 3rd, 12 baby chicks followed me home.
5 Buff Orpingtons
2 Black Australorps
and 5 Golden Sexlinks

Sadly one didn't make it but 11 are growing like baby chicks do. 

Today is going to be a busy day.
But first, I need another cup of coffee!

You are a Busy quilters this early morning. You are up with the chickens! Have fun. I'm prepping for teaching my first class at the LQS this week. Making a Brighter, high contrast version of the quilt. I hope to get it just to a TOP though, not enough timeto quilt it.
