This was my last week/weekend of freedom from school. Tomorrow another class starts and I'll have to keep up the rigorous pace of class. I've really enjoyed having almost a month off. I'll have a few things due this week, but the major paper won't be due for 2 weeks, so I can enjoy the long holiday weekend.
Here's another shot of the blocks I made for Emilee's Friendship quilt
Saturday morning I was up bright and early as Paul was going to work on a house, so at 6:30, while the kids slept, I sewed these two blocks for Jenn as part of our friendship block swap. I am now officially caught up! I'm glad several asked for bright scraps and white. It was fun to work with them.
Friday night after the kids were in bed and it was after 10, I started and made this little dress for Mikaela to wear to the preview party. I had bought the fabric a couple years ago and always intended to make her something out of it. I just was inspired Friday and whipped it out in under an hour.
I was able to get a bit of quilting time in due to the delayed race, so I quilted up Hugs & Kisses, a scrappy batik quilt. I had made if for a sample a while ago and realized it was on my UFO list, so I got it quilted. I hope to get binding on before we go camping this weekend, so I can do the handwork.
I also loaded this quilt. It's the leftover scraps from 5 other baby quilts I have made using this fabric and I think it may be going to a friend having a baby girl, but we'll see. I never know when inspiration may hit and I'll give it away. It is also on the UFO list. Again I hope to get the binding sewn on this week before we go camping.
I feel so productive and I was able to take in 9 projects to TSC I had completed. They weren't on my UFO list, but it felt good to have sewn that much. I don't really having many projects with deadlines right now, so I've been working on odds and ends. I have fabric for a light weight car seat blanket and I hope to get that done before camping, but reality says probably not. I also have an a special request diaper clutch I need to get made in the next couple weeks. I plan to get more sewing on my EPP project done while we are camping as well.
