Finally some sewing!

Got a bit of sewing done this weekend! Actually I spent a lot of time cutting out my pieces for Orange Crush Step 2. Didn't start sewing yet as that kind of sewing is good for me during the week when I get home from work and am tired. So you'll see that later in the week. I finally got a purdue pillow case made for Holly's boyfriend's younger brother. He has been bugging Holly for one ever since he saw Holly's.

And I finished 2 more stitchery blocks. Aren't they wonderful! I'm not sure how I"m going to set them yet in a quilt, I'll decide that once I get them all done.


I also put some bindings on some small quilts and started a few more small quilts. You'll see those later also. But at least I did get some sewing done!

Yeah for sewing! Seems like you have been so busy lately - good to get you back at your machine *s* Or with needle and thread, anyway. Look forward to seeing what got bindings . . . .

Glad you got to do some quilting. I spent yesterday doing alterations on a prom dress for my husband's cousin. It is a gorgeous dress and she will look lovely. Now I am hoping to get some quilting time in this week. I have a lot on my May motivation list, so hoping to complete a lot this month!

I do like your stitcheries - are they your own design or did you buy them?

Love the Purdue pillowcase - we have family friends in West Lafayette - I stayed with them for a holiday in 1991 - he was a lecturer in Anthropology at Purdue before he retired - sadly Alzheimers took him a year or two ago but his wife still lives there. We met them when the family lived in our village when I was about 14 yo and they were over in the UK for him to take a year's sabbatical at Leeds University - that seems such an age ago now

WOW, scrolled back and saw all your purchases... how did you get it all home, buckets and totebags and big suitcases? footlocker?

Wow, those quilts are so tiny and adorable. That is some very clever piecing. Your stitcheries look great. I love the simple themes that have meaning in our daily lives. I just bought some of that background fabric for a quilt, but now I am imagining all the stitching I could do on it instead. A great neutral yet pretty choice. It looks like you had a great time at the quilt show. But how did you get it home? lol
Love Stacy

We just feel better when we have a little time to sew or quilt. The pillowcase turned out cute. I made one for my youngest at WMU.
