Weekend Update & Design Wall Monday

Talk about time flying. I was busy all weekend, which means I didn't have a lot of down time. But that is my fault because I do schedule my time.

I had a nice walk after work on Friday and then I hit the sewing room. I got one side of applique border finished.

I spent most of the morning on Saturday prepping the face of the stairs to paint. I had country blue on the wall and stair faces and have decided to go back to a neutral color. It is almost white--just a bit of tint.

That afternoon I went shopping for a few hours so that blew a bit of time. When I got home Saturday evening, I did sew a little more and completed the second side applique border.

And that is my Design Wall Monday.

I did finish the stairs on Sunday and with Larry's help almost got the downstairs hallway and den area walls kilzed so I can paint them this week or next weekend. They were a bright purple and they are also going back to a neutral color.

I finally got to sit down and sew around 7 p.m. I was able to finish the rest of the applique for the two remaining side borders.  I haven't sewed them together yet.

Head over to Judy's for more Design Wall Monday.

Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
