Not so super, sewing Sunday 07-19-11

Hello everyone, what have you been up to?? Sewing anything fantastic at the moment, I would love to know about it.



Me well, I was working on my RRCB, trying to get to the assembly part and I sewed half of these pairs together and started working on the 22 blocks I forgot I didn't do, and somewhere in working on the others, I thought, well instead of burning out doing the same thing over and over I can sew the rest of those string pairs.......well. I was NOT suppose to do that!!! Crap, now I have to rip out 9 of them. I was on a roll for sure, because I was Rollin, Rollin, Rollin, Cotton, Bollin, Bollin, Bollin!!!!

I do have the first two blocks of my turquoise and white one started.......


Then I started and finished a secret project, here is my sneak peek of it. Isn't this cat cute!!! It is pinned and going into the machine next for quilting.
 Then last night I started the Rockin Row Robbin QAL. Here they are started in pink and red. They did theirs 4 blocks wide, I did mine 6 wide.














From the other end of the spectrum, kinda faded out the light colors on the end, guess the flash was too close.


Then here are they are finished and sewn together, longer than my table was! 95 different pink and red fabrics, all from the scrap bins too. I did find one repeat when I was sewing, oh well.

I am going to do row 2 today. Then see how tired I am, only got 3 hours sleep last night.

I love the CAT scan fabric! I am intrigued by the red to pink color strips too. You are one busy lady, hitting those UFO's HARD. Well done~ I am inspired.

OH! That turquoise and white one!!!! Duh! Why didn't I think of that for my Splendidly Marching Along? The good news; I TOTALLY know how to make up those blocks.....and they look AMAZING together.

Girl.....SO MUCH on your plate again; simply love looking at all your projects-in-progress :0)

Wow - the turquoise/white blocks look so good. I had seen the same block on Amy's blog and was toying with making a quilt using it but now I am convinced!

Rocking Robin looks great! You've been busy as usual and it all looks ownderful (yes- even those strings which I know you hate )

Hope you're feeling OK..Im a bad sleeper but three hours is just plain ridiculous.
