I really did finish it on Scrappy Saturday.
So, I will make it Post It Sunday.

And here are all of the finished ones. There are also quite a few piles of cut out and partially put together blocks in all colors waiting to be added to this.

I seemed to be on a roll with aqua and yes, I do have several more purple ones cut out! 

And I finally finished cutting out my next Christmas block.
You can see why it took awhile.

My supervisor was being seriously critical today.
He is napping now, so I should probably try to get some more done!!
Hope you are all enjoying a fun weekend with family, friends and/or your sewing machine!!

Moving Slowly

But still moving.
Feel like I am trying to fight off something, but I am trying to ignore it. Good thing it is my day off.
I worked on the bunny block for Bleeker Street today.
It has been awhile since I have done any significant amount of embroidery and boy could I tell.
After I got back into it, I found it to be relaxing. 

 Lots more to go, but I had to quit because my eyes were going cross-eyed.
I did get one yellow block cut out and the rest of the bits that I needed to do the next cat.

Oh and I played with my new spiralizer using zucchini and beets from our garden.
Hope everyone had an awesome day!!

Christmas in June!!

Now, if only we could have some Christmas weather.
I am hot already.
Now that I have finished Christine's Kitchen that was going on at Little Bunny Quilts, I need to buzz along with Have A Jolly Little Christmas from Sew Fresh Quilts.
And Spring on Bleeker Street from Ivory Spring.
Not to mention yellow blocks and birthday presents and the serious need to tidy up the sewing room, so that I can stop having to hunt for things everyday.

Here is my holly block that I finished yesterday:

And here are all of the blocks done so far:

Ornaments up next.
Next on my list is working on the bunny block for Bleeker Street. It is in pieces and pencil marks at the moment.
I will get there right?????
For now--time to get ready to go to work.
Everyone have a happy Wednesday.

Doing a Little "I Finished" Happy Dance

My Christine's Kitchen top is finished.
It's finished on time!!!

It is not a great picture. I was hoping to be done while the sun was still shining, but I had a bit of a speed bump.
Of course the white sashing on the top and bottom was not wide enough.  I took it all apart and started over.
I will get a better one tomorrow after I quit dancing.

Hello June!!!

The sun is shining!! Woo Hoo!!!
 We have had so much rain the last couple of weeks, so it is definitely a happy sight!!
I have been forging ahead on Christine's Kitchen. 
I really want to have the top done by reveal day on the 6th.

I still have some sashing to finish and more work to do on the flowers, but I am getting there.

It really isn't all that crooked--REALLY!!
I just haven't figured out how to iron my design wall--AKA:felt backed plastic table cloth--without melting it.
It is time for a laundry/NASCAR truck race break and then back to sewing.
Hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday!!

Happy Memorial Day

It has been a quiet day here. Hubby and I both had the day off, but we both ended up doing work around the house.
I did take some time to get into the sewing room and work on Christine's Kitchen.
I cut out 92 colored 2" x 2" squares and 92 white 2" x 2" squares and turned them into this pile.

And I am working on the flowers slowly. I had decided to do the applique by machine, but ended up unpicking, so a lot of it will be done by hand.

And I did get my snowmen done for the Have a Jolly Little Christmas sew along.

The next block is out of course, and I have to do the next part for Bleeker Street and more cats and a birthday present.
And on and on and on...

Yes, ADHD is a real thing in my family!

 Poor child never had a chance.
My plan was to catch up completely on teapots, but I kept making boo boos, so I have the stems finally on.

Would have gotten a lot farther, but I couldn't remember where I had (oh so nicely) tucked the bias tape makers.
I had already messed up once before on the stems just trying to cut them out--ugh!!
All of these petals are going to get cut out while I am watching NASCAR in a little while.

And I did manage to finish the second green block and I got another kitty done--so there is so method to my madness. At least I think there is. When I start making too many boo boos, I need to do something else for awhile.

It's going to be another long weekend of work and family events, but hopefully I can get a seam or two snuck in somewhere. 
Stay cool everyone!! It was 90 something here today!
