It's FRIDAY Already?!

Where did my week go?  and today is DD's last day of 7th grade! the time is zipping and zooming by...

On Monday afternoon, I pulled out a few flimsys (or is it flimsies? or maybe even flimsiii?), in any event~I was seaming backings and putting them in the queue to quilt when the spirit strikes.  Not very exciting, I know but necessary.  :)

I had left out this barnyard panel trying to decide on a border.  I pulled the stripe out of the flimsy box~I must have thought I could use it somewhere...maybe a binding...who knows~  When I threw, er~gently landed on the barnyard panel and I thought, 'Hey, that might work' .  So I sew it together, seamed a backing and queued it.

On Tuesday, I fused a couple of tshirts.  The butterflies are going to be a new summer purse/backpack and the Milwaukee Admirals and Milwaukee Brewers will become garden flags. Thought I took a before photo~guess not...sorry :(

On Wednesday, I started sewing the butterflies.

OH NO!  talk about yuck!  I mis-cut and tried to selvage it.  maybe not!

On Thursday, I went shopping.  + 4 yards

I also decided to dig into the box of blues and make backings for the garden flags.  I then 505 them and they are currently drying.  They will get a simple straight stitch on Baby for quilting.

This morning,  a much better center panel.  :)

and this ends the school year sewing. 

Up next~summer sewing.  But truthfully, there are a few items I need to finish even though DD is out of school....maybe she'll sleep in!  LOL!
