Odds and Ends

Well since I finished the baby’s blanket this week I’ve been working on hexies! Don’t have any pictures of them yet, I’ll probably wait until I have all the diamonds for the row completed.

2014-03-09 10.24.24Alex spent the night at my parents last night so I pulled some pink fat quarters and set to work cutting everything out for baby girl’s signature quilt.  This morning I managed to complete 22 of the 36 blocks I need for the top.  I need to make a run to Joann’s so I can get more Kona white for the rest of the blocks. I thought I had more than I did!  Hopefully I can buy a whole bolt and be set for awhile, I do have a 40% off coupon to use.  If I do go to Joann’s (which I probably will), I’m planning on getting the yarn to start another blanket for Kimmie’s friend.  I think I’ll be able to work on that while I take care of everyone else – it might just be my sanity check!

2014-03-09 10.24.18I also managed to finally iron and put together the first 2 blocks in the Good Night Irene sew along.  I’m SO far behind on this SAL!  It doesn’t really matter, I know I can catch up pretty quickly since I already have all the pieces cut out, I just need time (and energy) to sit at the machine to work on it.  I’m hoping I’ll find some time once I can sit at the machine better – there’s no a whole lot of room between the table and my stomach right now!

We’ve now completed 3 EQ sessions with the other quilt guild in my area.  I’m loving teaching again, even though I am now taking a month or so off for the baby.  Everyone says they are learning a lot on how to use the software, which is wonderful!  Can’t wait to see what they do with the assignment I gave them for April while I’m on “maternity leave”.

Gotta run, need to get 2 months worth of newsletters posted for our guild!

  1. Your Irene blocks look great… I love the background fabric you’re using! You’ll catch up in no time! :0)
