Thursday is guild day, so I don't watch the kids. I try to pack as much in my day as possible. Small steps get things done.
DH bought me a flat of annuals for Mother's Day. Of course since then it has been raining, or I have been taking care of the kids so I didn't have an opportunity to plant until today. I weeded a large section of my flower bed, and planted the flat. I also got my lettuce seeds planted. These are seeds from last year, hopefully they will still sprout.
I did block 3 for the Farmgirl Vintage QAL.
I finished up the letter 'S' for the Redwork Words of Wisdom quilt.
I took out quilting, I am still having tension problems. I tried using a singer needle and it was better, but still after a minute I started to have problems. I have one more thing to try, I was trying to use a 40 wt Mako on the top and a 50 wt Mako on the bottom in the bobbin. I ordered the 40 wt to match the color in the bobbin. Hopefully that will solve the problem.
I also started working on another row for the Farmer's Wife quilt. I got a few blocks and sashing for the row put together.
Tonight at quilt guild we had a learning from within. A lady showed how to use EQ, another how to make yoyos using the clover yoyo tool, another showed how she makes art quilts, and another how to make silhouette quilts. It was fun. I have been prepping pieces to make a yoyo quilt from scraps so it was nice to see how the tool worked. DH also bought me EQ7 for my birthday in February. I haven't taken the time to learn it, but the short 15 minute class at guild I think may help me along.
I think getting little bits done is better than not getting anything done at all, especially considering how often I am home now.
