Two weeks of progress

I totally lost track of time and remembered that I didn't update my blog last Sunday.

These are June's "Farmer's Wife" blocks.
With these 5 blocks I was able to finish another row. I really like adding the sashing and rows as I go.
Last week I tackled putting on the first border to "Cracked Pots". I love when a pattern fits perfectly, there were no adjustments to make. This was a first!
Then I added the houses I made last month along with some corner stones.
This morning I decided to go ahead and make the last border and in between various chores and errands, I attached it.

TA DA!!!! All finished!!!!
The past two weeks I have also been working on more klosjes. 215 done. 12998465 to go. LOL!

My mom is doing great with her radiation treatments, she is finally out of pain and her spirits are much better. She has 6 more treatments to go and after those she should be even better. Thanks again for all the notes of support.

I hope you all have a fantastic, healthy week with plenty of time to play.

Sunday Report

I can't believe how fast this week went by. I was able to get my center done for my "Cracked Pots" quilt. I sewed on the courthouse steps blocks a little at a time since last week and finally got them finished and put together this afternoon. I also made another 42 spools this week. That brings my total to 170. I still don't know how many I am going to make, I will re-evaluate after I get to 400.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day. Have a happy, healthy, safe and crafty week!!

Just a few things this week

I didn't have that much time to spend in my sewing cave this weekend but I did manage to get another "Lovebird Lane" block done. I needed to work on something quick and happy and this just called my name.During the week I finished another "Kitchen Fairy" block..............................and
I also made a dozen spools.
That's it for this week. I didn't get everything done on my list for April but I came pretty close. I am not going to make a list for May. I decided that I am going to work on what I feel like working on if I can get time in the sewing cave.

I wish everyone a very happy, healthy week!
