The Quilter is Back.......

........ I think.....So far so good, I managed to quilt a quilt on the HQ16 this past weekend and my foot didn't even scream at me. I think it's pretty much healed, which is a very good thing since I have alot to finish in a very short time :)

This weekend I got my sewing studio cleaned spic and span! And I even managed to get all of my fabric purchases from the last few months put away by rearranging my storage units. I now have all of my UFOs and finished tops in a freestanding drawer unit under the HQ16 table and my Elfa basket drawer units are filled with stash :) I still want to get a couple more freestanding drawer units to put under the HQ16 as well for batting scraps and some of my smaller finished quilts, but that will have to wait for the weekend.

I also got hubby to finally hang up my roll of batting so that I can actually use it without worrying about one of the cats using it to sharpen their claws. So I feel 100% more organized and energized to quilt quilt quilt (Now to find the extra hours in the day to allow me to do just that LOL).

The main accomplishment of the weekend though is that I finally finished quilting a love quilt for a friend that passed away last week. I received the top a few days before I cut the bottom of my foot and was just now able to get it quilted. I'll finish the binding and label this week and then send it to a friend who will present it in person to our friend's family. I'll post pictures later this week after the binding is finished :)

Hope you all have a very quilty week!
