First Weekend in February

The weekend was a bust as far as getting my quilt on. I managed a few hours this morning to cut and put together about 64 of 128 HST's that I need for my "Civil War Tribute" BOM. I hope to get the other 64 HST's and get the four blocks together next weekend. I also have block 2 of "Civil War Tribute" cut and hope that next weekend they will take shape. I also prepped another "Baltimore Bunny" BOM to hand stitch during the week.

On my lunch hours at work I stitched all 10 of my Klosjes I prepped last weekend. I also prepped another 10 to do this week. This is the perfect portable project for work. I think that next weekend I will prep a "Dear Jane" block and see how that goes. If I get the knack of this hand stitching thing maybe my Jane will get finished.
I also finished my first "Kitchen Capers" BOM. I was going to add the other elements to it but I noticed that I didn't have enough of a variety of fabrics. I am going to wait until I receive all packs and then put the other elements of the block together.
That's all I have for the week. :( I sure hope I have more time next weekend. This work thing just isn't helping me. LOL! I really thought the city of Los Angeles should have taken a "snow day" to sympathize for all of our brothers and sisters on the east coast.

Have a happy, heathy, safe, crafty week.

The kitchen capers is so cute. Well, I don't know about a snow day in LA but I have a friend in FL and she took a sun day.

Looks like you made some pretty good progress to me! Just you talking about all the HSTs in CWT make me shudder! That's still a UFO at my house! :-)

Lynda said...

"Kitchen Capers" is really sweet - a girlfriend made it last year and it's lovely. Great idea making the klosjes in your lunch break.

I want way more time in my sewing room this week! This week is going to be better. This week is going to be better. I'm hoping chanting it, will make it sew. :)

Wow! You got so much done on many things! I am really enjoying your progress on the Klosjes! This kind of project is what quilting is all about, and I love how you just plug along at it!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

Isn't it awful that work has to interfere with our sewing time? I'm sorry but you don't get a snow day until I get a snow day and we have around 40"s on the ground!!!! LOL

Terry said...

Your spools are looking great! And your stitchery is so cute! :0)

Robin said...

The Kitchen Capers block is so cute! I'll have to go check out that quilt. And good job on your Klosjes!

A "bust" for you is wildly productive compared to me. You should definitely be proud of all you manage to accomplish, even in an "off" week. :)

Your CW blocks are just darling and I love the Kitchen Capers, so adorable. You always pick the cutest stitchery patterns. I hope you get more time to play this coming weekend.

The kitchen capers block is very cute! Yes...our peddler's market was at Piecemakers in Costa Mesa...we are going to try a couple more of their craft fairs this year too!
