This week's accomplishments

I was a stitching fool this week. I finished another section of "Vignette in Stitches". I would have had another section done but I ran out of red thread. :( I also ran out of pink thread but Nancy mailed me one of hers. :) Here are this months "Farmer's Wife" blocks. This makes another row done that I can hopefully add the sashing to the next time I can get to my sewing cave.
Here are two catch up blocks for the "Civil War BOW".
That's it for this week. Next week is hell week. ( 5 x 12hr day work week) I prepped some hand work to work on since my sewing room is out of the picture for a while.

Have a great week everyone!!!

So productive! You Rock, Yvette. That Vignette in Stitches piece is gorgeous! But, ooof-- it sounds like you've got a a killer week to come. I hope you at least get a little time to relax between work and bedtime!

I love your stitchery! So happy looking!
You have been churning out the FW and CW BOW. I keep thinking about starting the CW blocks, but it STILL hasn't gone past the thinking stage.

I just can't believe how much you get done! Such pressure you put on me. LOL

Beautiful blocks and I love your stitchery.

Gorgeous blocks! they look so fiddly. Your stitching is progressing well. Nothing worse than running out of cotton to hold it up.

Long beach quilt show looks great; for me on quilt shows always 100s of quilting I love to be doing!!
Your Farmers Wife looks interesting. Glad you found the pink thread to continue Leanne`s stitchery. That whole quilt will be stunning when done:-)
