I eagerly watched and cheered for the women in the United States and in over thirty countries around the world, on every continent, marched to show their
Taking power from his horrid comment that you just grab a women by her pussy..., women have been banding together to protest and show their strength. The Women's March of January 21, 2017 was a wake-up to many. We have a voice and we're not going to turn our cheeks and take it anymore. You can visit the Women's March website to learn more about their plans for future activities.
As a visual sign of sisterhood, many woman wore pink pussyhats to the marches. I didn't attend a march, but I was there in spirit and I am now knitting a pink hat for my daughter. It is just the first of many I plan to stitch. Information about the Pussyhat project are available on their website along with several patterns for knit, crochet, and sewn hats.
The ten inches squares on the left are for the swap. I have no interest in purchasing a layer cake from a fabric manufacturer, too boring to just have one fabric line for a quilt. This way I will have the same theme of fabric from many fabric lines. much more interesting.
Since I was cutting fabric anyway, I might as well cut for multiple quilts. Next are 3 1/2 inch strips for a star quilt, 2 1/2 inch strips for a strained glass type quilt and finally 1 1/2 inch strips for a log cabin. My plan is that I have a Christmas/winter quilt for each bed by the end of this year. (she says sheepishly).
I am sticking with my To Do list and am using stickers to indicate my successes. It cheers me on to see the stickers increase of the course of the week. I am still lagging on a few projects, but notice I said lagging, not totally floundering. I like the idea from the guy on the Bullet journal site who states that you re-write your to do list each week as you then are forced to evaluate each item and ensure that you have given it it's proper priority. This afternoon, I'm working on the binding for a quilt. It is on the to do list for the third week running and each week I have done a wee bit toward completion. So far so good. I hope that you are also seeing success this week.
Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you. I hope that you are having fun and making progress on whatever project is dear to your heart at this moment.
