While The Cat's Away...

My Cat-Ernie-is gone this weekend on a halibut fishing trip.  
The Mouse--me--is playing.

On his way out of town,
he dropped the beast off at the spa.
Instead of a weekend full of quilting tops from Mt. ToBeQuilted,
 I came up with a new plan-
finish more tops.

I had put my Ambassador machine in this cabinet a few weeks ago
with the intention of sewing in the living room in front of the tv.
I don't have a tv in my sewing room.
I had yet to open it until this weekend. 

I have done so much while Ernie has been gone.
I make a list of 3 household to do projects, 
hurry and get them done so I can sew without guilt.

Project 1 was to finish this top.
I had made a mistake on row 6 while at retreat and had already taken the row apart.
I thought maybe the other rows were wrong too 
but I waited until row 6 was sewn back together and checked them.
Thank goodness they were all good and no more un-sewing had to happen.
This is now a top with the backing and binding selected, waiting to be quilted.

Town Square is is ready for inner and outer borders.
I love this, it's so bright and happy.

What will happen today?
I have a couple ideas....
but first I must take care of those 3 things on my list.

The Cat will be home tomorrow so this Mouse must get playing.

What could be more fun than a stay at home and quilt weekend with no distraction. Such a great collection of almost quilts. Enjoy!

Way to play while DH is away. Great progress. 3 Chores is a good idea. All Quilt time - No Guilt!

I love that you got your machine in the cabinet to sew in front of the TV. Way to boost quilt production!!
