A Long Week

I can’t believe it’s been a whole week since I posted. I’m at the tail end of this semester for both Ferris and EMU, and I’ve had SO many papers to grade. There hasn’t been time for very much else, especially quilting and blogging, so forgive me.

The best laid plans… never seen to follow through the way you hoped. I planned to start Samantha’s christening gown last weekend, but when I opened the box and pushed aside the tissue paper, my wedding dress was covered with mildew and rust stains! I could have cried, but I didn’t. (Did do a little cursing though!) Anyway, I put the dress in the washer and soaked it in Woolite and Cascade, and that helped a little bit. Not enough, though. Today after my last Saturday class (I have to give them their final exam) I’m planning on going on a hunt for Oxyclean. Everyone tells me it works miracles, so we’ll see.

I’ve tried to keep up with the Dear Jane Block of the Week even when I’m busy. I let the Triangle of the Week go until I have more time. Here are a few I have completed recently:

C2-Streak of Lightening

K8-Springbrook Park, Paper pieced

H6-Pie Sale

All the kids and grandkids are supposed to come up tomorrow, Sunday. Can’t wait to see everyone! My dad will also be over. He hasn’t met Samantha yet, so he’ll get to hold his only Great Granddaughter! He will also get to meet Loren’s sweet Margaret. I’m going to take lots of pictures, and will post some when everyone goes home.

Have a Great Weekend!!!

One thought on “A Long Week

  1. Oh, I do hope you’re able to get the dress clean!My mil had always hoped to have her wedding gown cut down for a First Communion dress for a granddaughter. Well, I had her only GD, and had planned to do just that. Unfortunately, there had been a basement flood and when we went to take the gown out, it was ruined. I never even thought back then that it might be salvageable. Kudos to you for not giving up! I hope you can at least take part of it for the christening gown.
