It was a busy three days. Saturday a girlfriend came over and we put together a king sized t-shirt quilt top. She showed up at 9 a.m. and left at 7:00 p.m. We used 63 shirts. She did the cutting and I did the sewing and pressing. There is no deadline for this and it is going to take a while to quilt.

Before I went out to mow and trim a bit, I finished up quilting that t-shirt. I now have 20 out of the 30 shirts quilted! Woohoo!

I try hard to live simple. I want to use my time for sewing, but things do get in the way. After work I had to get a prescription. When I got home I needed to check on the chipmunk traps; I had trapped two and I needed to deal with those and set the traps back up. While I was outside, I decided to go ahead and water the flower seedlings and the cora bell bed. I needed to cook something for lunches so it was another hour of cooking and doing dishes. It was now 6:30 and I headed to the fabric storage room to gather up fabric with skulls on them to take to work. A lady at work asked me to make a boxy pouch for her SIL out of the guitar skull fabric for her June 1st birthday. I didn't have any more of that fabric so I brought some of my stash of skull fabric for her to pick from.

What a weekend! I will start with the Harley quilt. I now have 19 of the 30 shirts quilted so I made pretty good progress.

I was dreading sewing on the 2" wide webbing. Shoving the bag thru the machine was going to be a pain. I did get most of it sewn until I ran out of webbing. I never thought it would take more than 10 yards to do this bag. I needed something strong, black, and 2" wide so I grabbed some fuzzy loop tape and sewed it fuzzy side down. I needed around 30" and that did the trick!
