Weekend Blocks and Learning Bad Habits


Dreary weather is OK for sewing.
I have finished 2 neutral blocks for the Rainbow Challenge.


I did redo my moose. I am much happier with him now.
Still have no idea what I did the first. Just Ugh!!
 I seem to spend a lot of time redoing lately. 

I'm also working on the butterfly and other stitching on the birdhouse block for Bleeker Street.

And what bad habits you ask?
Well, Miss Good Girl Squeaks has obviously been paying way too much attention to her younger, naughty brother.
I found her in one of his spots,


and then she made a big old mess of her own without any instruction from her brother.


Needless to say, I have been doing some tidying today.
Not all of it has been caused by my furry friends, but they are certainly adding to it.

For now--it is laundry and NASCAR.
Hopefully, I will get some backgrounds for some applique blocks cut out later.
Hope  everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
L,A-

Neutral Colors



These fabrics will soon be rainbow challenge blocks. Witt makes everything a challenge, but he is cuddly so I let him be. 

I think my Moostle Toe block falls into the neutral category as well.


I think he is kind of cute now. When I was unpicking parts of him, I was not so sure!!
 My old lady Squeaks is too dark to fall into this category, but she did make it up three whole stairs so that she could keep and eye on my comings and goings.


She is practicing to be a speed bump! She really is brave because I am a klutz!

We are having thunderstorms right now, but nowhere near as bad as they are having in other parts of the country.
I hope you are all safe no matter where you are.

August Activity

There was a lot of activity in the sewing room today.
Pulling this, cutting that, hunting for other things.
I did do some actual sewing.
I got the main part of the birdhouse block for Spring on Bleeker Street done.


I need to do the butterfly applique and some stitching and it will be good to go.
Also finished cutting out the moose for Have a Holly Jolly Christmas over at Sew Fresh Quilts


Just a pile of moose bits at the moment, but Saturday will be here soon right????
And then I collected a pile of stuff for August neutrals for the rainbow challenge.


Not much actual cutting out there yet, but I am ready to go.
I got distracted by a giant pile of Christmas fabric.
I pulled this pile.
 

It is a start for this quilt a long that Joy is hosting.


I know--I am starting something else, but look how cute it is.
And I am finishing up the other Christmas quilt soon.
Well, at least I am finishing up the top. That counts right???
 I have found a whole bunch of other things that I want to do lately as well, but I am trying to control myself.
I know there is a pineapple quilt in my future.
I also have a million UFO's screaming at me.
I am guaranteed not to be bored at least!
Happy in my insanity!!!
