Super sewing sunday 09-11-11

Had a wonderful week of sewing and getting things done. First off I took these two piles,

and stitched them all together to make these........



I have 2 more piles to go, then I can sew them together to make a top.

Then I did a few of these.......




Oh I am getting soooooooooooo close to being able to sew this top together. Can't wait to get this one off the table. :D

Then I pulled some blocks off the design board and started sewing the pieces together to make the blocks. I no sooner put the 2 piles on the table, and Jethro came out of no where and took his spot. These stitch up very quickly. Hoping to have the whole top done by the end of the week. I did 2 sections out of 5.

 Then I grabbed my Block A Palooza blocks and stitched them together awaiting me to finished stitching down the flower garden center so I can attach these around the flower garden part. 6 more blocks are hanging off the table that you cant see.

I also quilted half of my snowman quilt, forgot to take a photo. Trying to figure out what to quilt in the rest of the areas.  I also reswed a binding back onto a blanket ( it isn't a quilt) that came undone two years ago. So now that is off the bench.....I almost cleared the bench off. Almost. I have just been cruising right along with all my projects this week. Gotta keep it all mixed up though so I don't get bored and burnt out on one project. Since a lot of them are all at the almost done stage, I should have a very exciting week coming soon when they all hit the top is finished stage!!!

I also found me a black and decker stowaway iron at the goodwill for $2.99 yesterday. Works great too!!! Now I can throw those other two pieces of junk in the trash.

Well I had 5 more hours I could have spent sewing today, but since the humidity was coming back last night, and hubby felt like a furnance, and the dogs wanted to bark non stop all night long, I didn't get much sleep so I am going to watch TV and be ready for bed really soon. I also start working at a different building tomorrow from where I had been the past 5.5 years. I am really looking forward to it for now, I needed a change in pace. Plus I have a few really good coworkers down there too.

Jethro is rolling all over my favourite quilt...why do cats do that? Mine do the same thing. I love those colours.

You're on fire with all that craftiness .
