I have tied myself to the sewing machine today working on the neck scarves for the Scouts. I am almost done except for the badges. A person certainly doesn't make any money doing this sort of thing but you can't charge a non profit group what your labour is worth.
It has taken me a bit longer than normal as I have had to figure out what the previous person did. Now that has been solved, I am getting them completed quite a bit quicker.
Yesterday, at quilt group, I sorted through a large bag of remnants and got a lot of sorting done. The larger pieces were folded and set aside to be used in scrap projects or to be added to something as needed. There were a lot of blocks that had been made as samples and they went into a bag and labelled for placemats. One of the other ladies is making a log cabin quilt so she took narrow strips.
I am pleased with the progress I made. As I mentioned before, I am no longer going to cut fabric into a multitude of sizes. Instead, I am going to trim them to a rectangle or square, fold and put in a drawer to be cut and used as needed.
Hope everyone had a safe weekend. It was Victoria Day yesterday so a long weekend for Canadian workers. It is the first long weekend of the summer although the summer wasn't particularly summer like.
I put my tomato plants in today so hope the cooler weather is past. I am taking tomorrow off and going into Huntsville with my husband when he goes to buy some lumber. We need a new phone as the battery seems to be going on the ones we have and I would like to buy some more plants.
Back to work!
