Oops, we’ll announce Small Quilts winners Monday

Today got away from us–here’s some of what we’ve been juggling today:

  • preparing for Spring Market in Minneapolis next week
  • getting Sept/Oct quilts ready to photograph starting next week
  • continuing to write, layout and proofread pages for Sept/Oct ’10 and 100 Blocks, Volume 2
  • finalizing quilts that will be going into Nov/Dec ’10 and Quilting & Embroidery, Fall/Winter ’10

And we forgot to pick winners in the blog posts this week that celebrate the arrival of our Small Quilts issue. So we’ll pick those winners and announce them on Monday.

  4. Kay says:

    I’ve been juggling work, making a sports quilt for my grandson, putting together the President’s quilt for our guild president, putting togeher a pinwheel challenge quilt for guild & helping my sister move. Not nearly enough time to sew.

  5. Regina says:

    Was out of town on the gorgeous weekend, so playing catchup on the yard and the mulch and the laundry and the weeds and the sleep and the getting a 5 year old ready to graduate from preschool.

  6. Jo Anne says:

    Working in the garden, making a Christmas table runner for a shop sample, visiting a Top 10 featured quilt shop, starting 2 large quilts for family gifts, church work, as well as a full-time job.

  7. SewLindaAnn says:

    This weekend I’ve been trying to work outside cleaning up my garden areas while I’m planting in veggies and flowers – while cooking meals, doing laundry, trying to sit and crochet or sew. Got the hexagons going in two different quilts and an apron sitting at the ironing table ready to be finished up.

  9. I been juggling work duties, retirement celebrations, end-of-school year activities and a trip to Florida with my husband. One day at a time is how I’m making it. Would love a copy of the magazine!

  10. Avon Bingham says:

    Talk about juggling time. Two blessing dresses – one first of June one last of June – wouldn’t send the babies back for anything :) Tying a charity quilt with my 7th graders at school, Trying to find a sub. for school so I can go watch the High School girls soft ball games ( hubby is the coach and they are playing for state. Just finished 15 log cabin squares for a quilt to send with others made by the guild to those in need. Whew!!! I will be glad when one more week is over ( if I get my blessing dress done on time).

  11. Karen M says:

    Juggling, I want to sew but can’t. Too much garden work, work, and housework. There are never enough hours in a day. Thanks for another chance to win. Karen M

  12. Cecilia Young says:

    I am working on bumper pads, baby quilt and crib sheets for my second granddaughter, as well as hand quilting my son’s quilt. All of this along with all of my other responsibilities. :) Would love to win a new magazine.

  13. Sandy Allen says:

    I’ve been juggling work and quilts! :) I have one quilt that I wanted to get done hand quilting before my guild meeting next Thursday, another set of blocks begging to be made in to a quilt for my FIL, and another set of “pieces” of blocks from a class I took that are wanting to get done. Too many things, not enough hours int he day!

  14. I’m juggling finishing quilting quilts, delivering quilts, picking up quilts, plus the normal every-day stuff. AND I’m trying to find a little time to finish up 2 almost-done projects. Not enough hours in the day.

  15. Nancy says:

    I am in the middle of decision making. We have lived here for 36 yrs. and time for new roofing (just got done) siding and windows. Want to make sure we get good windows, because don’t want to have to do it again; but don’t want to go over our budget either. A new quilt magazine would be great to relax with after all the shopping around.

  16. Mary Kastner says:

    I am juggling being Nana and nanny to my 3 year old granddaughter and her new baby sister. Quilting whenever I can get a moment.

  17. Brenda says:

    I have a lot of health problems (mainly chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain, and arthritis) and the weather changes we’ve been having just mess me up and throw me into bed!! So, when I do have some limited energy (a couple of hours is my limit) I have to choose between doing those necessary errands like grocery shopping or getting involved in something I really want to do! I just bought a small freezer, and have been filling it with microwavable stuff (can’t remember the last time I actually cooked something), so if I get far enough ahead I won’t have to worry as much about that, except for basics like milk, etc. And today, must stock up on kitty food or my cat is likely to move out and move in with someone else!! I do get a lot of reading done when I’m flat (and not sleeping), so most of my quilting has been vicarious. I have lots of things planned–I have a tote on my bed with my graph paper, colored pencils, rulers, and all kinds of junk, so do have quite a few designed, as well as the ones I love from the mags and books.

  18. Robyn Brown says:

    Wow! Son home from college, two small children, field day at school, full time job, quilting work (massive t-shirt quilt), gardening (gardenias have a fungus), making reusable lunch sacks, MOUNTAINS of laundry, GOT to go to the grocery store before we start eating the furniture, bills, library, billing for husbands business, I could go on but I really don’t want to further depress you plus I’m getting an eye twitch ;0)

  19. Lisa England says:

    A graduation quilt, a sample quilt for a local shop owner, a son coming home from college for the summer, vacation preparations, home remodeling….day to day stuff just like everyone else.

  20. so we added chickens says:

    Juggling – the fine art of trying not to drop too much :)
    I’m juggling being a mom and mom-to-be-again, working, quilting and sewing, tending chickens and a rabbit and all the other daily fire drills that go with everyday life.

  21. Deb G. says:

    Spring garden and yard work, house fix-up projects and quilting!

  22. Darlene B says:

    Having our daughter home from college really makes us feel like we’re juggling. It’s amazing how much stuff can accumulate in a very small space – and it all gets thrown into our house! Whew….I think I’d better just retreat to the sewing room so I can’t see the piles of stuff around here!

  23. Sarah Stevens says:

    Juggle seems an appropriate term. My younger son graduates nest weekend from high school. I made 13 pounds of Italian beef and batches for 4 kinds of cookies. Yesterday I woke to water in the basement since the sump pump decided it had seen better days (well, it was 26 years old after all!)… so sorting and pitching wet stuff and changing out the sump pump for a newer model took priority. The same day as graduation is confirmation at church so I (in sore need ot some fabric fondling time) made a zippered cover for the new Bible I am giving to the young lady I am mentoring. I am invited to a wedding shower tomorrow afternoon and I need to find a gift first. I still need to clean the main floor of the house and actually bake those cookies. I reallllllly want to be making feathered star blocks to help me relax!

  24. Cathy says:

    Winding up a year of teaching, a garden that needs tending desperately, and traveling to a son’s graduation from law school. All great fun…

  25. Andee in aZ says:

    I have been juggling work, sewing a quilt for my cousin who just got married, and making vegetable pizza for a family gathering tomorrow!

  26. duff says:

    I’ve been juggling family time and work time. End of semester finals and grades eats just about all my free minutes. Dinner has been “fast’ lately–yuck! But oh, one more week and it’s summer time!!!

  27. It seems time is going by, way too fast.
    I have seen a lot of things coming out at market, looks to be a good year and season for new things.

    Debbie

  28. Carol says:

    I am fortunate enough not to have to juggle anything this week. I am visiting my sister and can quilt all day long!!!! I have “sew” enjoyed my day today!

  29. Pat S says:

    I’ve been juggling a newsletter deadline for the guild along with helping elder family members with their errands and appointments. I’m hoping to squeeze in some quilting this weekend, though…. Thanks for the chance to win!

  30. Sequana says:

    I have a UFO challenge I’m trying to finish; it’s not easy when I need to keep waiting for supplies to be mailed.

  31. Teri says:

    4 balls schedules and a soccer schedule. Next month I will be ready for some serious sewing time and some ME time.
    Teri

  32. Linda says:

    I am juggling granny nannying with quilt making time plus keeping our household going. Would love to win!! Thanks!

  33. Jocelyn says:

    I’ve been juggling end of the school year stuff! I really want to sew, but this is more important right now. Last year for the last child :-(

  34. Lynne says:

    I have been juggling me and quilting time as opposed to family time and as usual not winning. Small quilts would make my finishes infinately more achievable. Maybe it could then become a Win Win situation :-)
    Have a Good Weekend
    Cheers
    Lynne
