A Sewing Day

Haven't had one in quite awhile.
Lola came over on Thursday and we played around a bit.
I got another of scrappy star done from Terry's last sew-a-long.
And nope, I did not know she was busy making a gray quilt at the time--it just turned out that way. I really am running out of colors to do these in. Time to start that really scrappy one.
I also got the first border on my nephew's quilt. Thought I would whip through the second one, but now I am not sure if I like the second or not.
 Don't have time for these indecisions.
So, that is my goal for the rest of the week.
Lola was busy teaching me how to make pillow cases the easy or was that the hard way.
Fortunately she left me a set of directions, because there was lots of rolling and turning and I may have forgotten a step or two
and of course you must always deal with Murphy who wants to sit right where you are working. He especially likes leaning up against the hot iron and freaking you out.
And yes, he does answer you when you talk to him. His favorite word is NO!
Hope everyone is safely tucked away warm and toasty in their sewing room.
This dreary weather is icky!!
Come on Mr. Sunshine!



cute block and neat colors--I am getting into the color 'grey' too--wonder if it is because of so much 'grey' skies this winter!!!
hugs, di and miss gracie

Your star block looks great! I can see a whole quilt make of those. It would be lovely! :0)

Had a good time. Murph is a hoot! He worries me though with that iron!
