Oh no she didn't! Oh yes, she did!

What did I do? I started 2 new projects!

This is block #1 of "Farm Fresh". I have been resisting and resisting this quilt for a long time. Once I saw it in person it was all over. Beth and Nancy are ask working on this one too. I can't wait to start on block 2.
My next project is called "Cotton Club". Ranette and Nancy are also doing this quilt. I think the plan is to make 2 blocks a week, so far I am in schedule.
The next 2 stitchery blocks are for month 7 of "Kitchen Fairies" BOM.

This is another panel for "Vignette in Stitches". I have another band prepped and ready to go.
Yesterday I put together a quick little charity quilt for "Quilts for Kids". They actually sent me all the fabrics, which were pre-cut. I put it together, quilted, bound and washed it. I am ready to send it back.
I hope you all have a great week!

Weekend sewing

These are this months "Civil War Chronicles blocks. They make me dizzy looking at them. Not sure I like the striped fabric.I finally attached the row I finished up on my "Farmer's Wife". Now I am going to start planning on the next row. (Get ready Joy)
I also finished Block 1 of "Vignette in Stitches". This block was from the first magazine. I am going to try to put together block 2 & 3 next weekend and finish the stitching on them. I still haven't bought the binding fabric for the quilt that Linda quilted for me. I will make that my mission next Saturday.

Have a great week everyone!

I'm back!

Ooops, I missed last week's update. Time is just flying by too fast!! The good news is that I have had time to visit the sewing cave.

These are August's "Civil War Chronicles" blocks.
This is a stitchery project I finished during the week. It was quick and easy. I haven't decided yet if I am going to frame it or turn it into a pillow.
Here is my "Witches Boot" all stitched up. It was so much fun using different stitches and coloring the fabric. I look forward to another project like this one day.
I met Beth and Nancy last weekend at "The Orange Quilt Bee" and they helped me pick out fabrics to finish it off. I can't wait to get it quilted and hang it up for the fall.
Yesterday I made a mini quilt. I plan on making many more of these so I can put in ............
my new caddy! I think it is the cutest thing!!! Sharon's hubby makes them and she sells them on her site. I can't wait to fill her up with my mini quilts.
That's all I have for today. I did get a quilt returned that I sent to Linda a while back. She did a phenomenal job on it. I can't wait to show it off! I will try to get a binding on it ASAP.
