Weekly Review

It was a LONG work week for me but I did manage to steal some time in my sewing room yesterday afternoon and this morning. I made the last 2 blocks from the first row of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. I will now wait for Joy to catch up before I proceed with row B. The first block I had to draw in EQ so I could paper piece it. I tried doing it the way the book wanted to, after an hour and a heap of a mess, I turned to EQ.

Here are all the blocks for the first row. We plan on getting a row a month done but I think it will be more like a row every 2 months. We both have a lot on our plate right now so we shall see. I am thinking about attaching these with the sashing strips now and save all that labor at the end.
I also knocked out 7 more 9-patches for the 9-patch a day challenge.
In the evenings I worked on "Catalicious BOM". Here are May and June's block. All caught up!! :)

Does anyone want the pattern below?? I received it as a gift from a shop I ordered from. I won't use it so if anyone wants it for their collection just let me know. When I am on vacation I will go through all my patterns/books that I don't want and have a give-away. Stay tuned in July.

Love the yellow and blue together in the block.
Your stitcheries look great. Sometimes it is hard to keep up to date.

The SBS in yellow and blue is so fresh and pretty...you are making great progress.

You are tempting me with the red and white nine patches...hmmm....do I have time to whip one out per day??? Probably not this year :o)

Your stitching is perfection and I'm jealous that it looks so good...lol and you are fast!
