Sunday has been a Katnip Krazy and Kolonial day!  Between loads of laundry, breakfast, exercise, tidying up around the house, lunch, and dinner a bunch of sewing on these two projects was done. 

Katnip Krazy is laid out the way it will be put together.  I've got all the flower centers and stems figured out and all the mice for the border in full production.  Next step will be to applique down the flower centers, stems and leaves.  They are all prepared for Roxanne's Glue Baste It which will be started today at my lunchtime break.
Kolonial was laid out on the floor and stacked up in rows ready for assembly just before dinnertime.  I was able to get the first two rows together before a break to season up the chicken for hubby to barbecue.  Baked beans ready for heating, peaches ready for serving, and table set...time for putting together another row...heck why not!
Eat, clean up, prepare lunches for today, and get breakfast fixings ready for the start of another work week.  5:45am...YUCK...comes way too early for me!  There was still three more hours of prime sewing time before lights out at 10:00pm.  I have the first three rows and all the sashing or the odd numbered rows assembled.  Next up is the even rows which are the Dark and Light Star rows; four of them.  Finally the last sashing row and the bottom row which I'm sewing together into units like the Dark and Light Star rows; seems faster for me to to it this way.
Tonight is Canyon Quilters of San Diego monthly meeting.  I'll be leaving from work to meet up with friends (also members) for dinner first.  Don Lin "Mr. Quit" provides our lecture for the evening.  It's a Friends Come Free meeting...  If you are in the area and want to come by we start at 7:00 pm and the lecture starts at 8:00pm.

I'll be busy again on Tuesday evening.  Want both of these projects finished so I can move on to something new.  Check out other quilters' work today by way of Patchwork Times.  Happy Sewing!
