My sweet DH has been gone and that sucks but he did come home yesterday!!
But, I did quit job #1! and my time was up Yesterday!!! Amen!
In the last couple of weeks, I have really had to suck it up and focus my attention on school- thankfully so, that I actually did it, because that meant I got to go spend the day with QuiltnMama.
Then on last Friday, I got to spend some time with another set of buds from work. We went bargain shopping at the local barn sale. It happens only 4 times a year and it is always fun to see what they have- usually I can find at least 1 thing to bring home. This time I scored bit, in my mind anyway.
I ended up with a butcher block topped table and a super-duper cool pincushion! (but, its just for looks, so it really doesn't count, ya know?)
What is really neat about it, is on further inspection: it is made out of a can! yep, a good ole tincan. That is the patchwork pincushion I was gifted- they work perfect together!
So, on the sewing front the last couple of weeks I really haven't been up to too much- I help bind all the quilts for West, but at home not much has been accomplished.
And, I have been dabbling in making a romper for my sweet Grandbaby, A! I got to eat dinner with them the other night and it was definitely a treat! She is gonna be a lefty- just like her PawPaw. Makes my heart smile!
I did manage to make all the units for a friends new baby quilt. Half-Square triangle, chevrons. Too cute. The colors are not very baby-ish to me, but those are the colors she chose, so, to each its own.
You can also see my Sugar Block Club blocks up on the design wall- I am waiting with baited breath for next month's block, I love the way these are turning out.
Now, I wanna say: I hate Google right now. I miss my beloved Reader so much. I made the switch to Bloglovin, but I hate it. It is not conducive to linking and clicking onto posts. It is such a hassle. It keeps that stupid bar at the top all the time. I am looking for something better- any suggestions??
I am also considering doing a post for Giveaway Day, but I am not sure exactly how it works!
I am linking up over at Live a Colorful Life!
Sew, till next time!
