Scrap Saturday Results

I now have all the green scraps sewn into rows for the blocks. I have 48 blocks altogether to sew up for this quilt.


I will start that job tomorrow evening. I am pleased with what I did accomplish tonight.

While I was sewing away tonight, Trevor brought me a nice little girlie drink to sip on while I worked away.



I had myself confined to my little sewing space by putting the ironing board up next to my sewing table. I had alot of sewing and then pressing to do. It certainly cut down on the getting up and down each time!!!



This afternoon while spending a little time in my sewing room, I managed to get the last set of Christmas placemats machine binded.




William kept himself busy exploring one of the fabric cabinets while I did some machine embroidery samples.

All the placemats are now ready for the hand stitching while I can do while watching a movie or working on some machine embroidery work.

After 10pm, I decided to take a little break from the sewing room and come upstairs to hang out with Trevor and to enjoy some yummy baked apples. They are baking in the oven now and the smell of the apples throughout the house is just divine!!!!

And on that note, I think I will get going and dig into one of the yummy baked apples. I think I will also see if there are any good movies on tv tonight. Perhaps I'll do a bit of knitting on my sweater too.

Quiltingly Yours

Nice work on the greens. I am anxious to see the finished piece. Think I may need a girly drink next time I'm sewing.

Great progress on your green blocks. You seem to have your sewing so organized. I like your method of the clear tubs for the blocks. I should do something like that.
