saturday sewing report

Jim left this morning for Washington DC. My plan for the day was to sew all day long. Funny how plans can change! I was even up early for me on a Saturday(8:45am!!)and I had honest intentions of attacking my pile of want to do projects but I got the urge to do some spring cleaning.

4 hours later, I had beds stripped down and sheets washed(including mattress pads!) 3 closets emptied and re-organized(with 4 garbage bags of clothes off to the local Sally Ann). Also made a yummy dinner and some very tasty(if I do say so myself) peanut butter muffins

As a result, instead of completing my first weekend project in the few hours the magazine promised, it took me more like 6 lol!! I LOVE the Quilts and More quilting magazine. This quilt is from their spring 2009 issue. It's the big block log cabin quilt. And I'm happy to tell you it is made entirely from my stash. It used up a very minimal amount so I made a fun pieced binding to go with it(sorry the picture is blurry but I'm going to be lazy and refuse to go take another one lol)

Sadly, that's all I'm going to accomplish today. I had another quick project I was already to get started on when I discovered that the applique pieces need to be enlarged 200%. At least I caught that before I started tracing and cutting them all out!

And don't forget to change your clocks ahead tonight! And that means I should probably go to bed a little early tonight, tomorrow is going to come too early!


  1. It looks great! I love the scrappy binding, too.

    This has got to be your longest blog post in history.

  2. That happens to me too sometimes. I have have great ideas to stamp or craft...and then I find myself in a cleaning rut! Who ever heard of that! haha. Glad I"m not the only lone duck out there!

  3. Cleaning is good!! Your quilt colors are nice and rich ...

  4. It certainl sounds like you had a very productive day even if it was a bit off track from your plans.

  5. Bad kitty!! You sure got a lot done on Saturday. The mood hits me to clean like that too, about every 10 years or so.


I had to put word verification back on; just too much spam! Sorry, I'm not a fan either!!

Thanx for visiting, hope to see you again soon!
