Multi-Tasking

Our local quilt show is coming up the first weekend of March-- and I will have a minor toe surgery the second week of February. Yipes. That gives me one month to prepare my vendor booth for the show; that means dye fabric, make wool pincushions, table runners, and plan a layout for the booth.

Doesn't sound too bad, except that in the next 6 weeks I am also the Vendor Chairman for the quilt show (that's been fun), teaching Beginner Quiltmaking classes, giving a lecture to a quilt group in South Carolina, and expecting my son home from the Army. Yipes-a-roo.

So...I'm multi-tasking:

This morning I put a rolled hem on ten table runners for a gift shop downtown. Here's my trusty serger...

I'm using a wonderful variegated thread called Isacord which gives the tiny edge a tiger stripe...


If you have a serger, you know that the edge of the fabric is cut clean before it's sewn. Here are my little trim piles on the floor--gotta make something with those...

This afternoon I did some paperwork, shopped for tables for my upcoming Beginner class, made up some dye colors and started dyeing fabric for our booth...

Okay, break is over! My daily goal for dyeing is 15 yards a day so I have 10 more yards to dye tonight.

It's OK to be busy with fun stuff made from great colors!

Yummy colors!

I love the little bits of edges. They would be fun to play with!

I hope the toe surgery goes well. Elevate! A lot, it will help! My Dr. Says "To the Moon Alice".
