My Weekend Sewing

I hope everyone is having a great New Year's Weekend! I am enjoying the 4 days off from work - doing lots of sleeping, television watching ( husband has the remote, so there is more television surfing ! ) but not much sewing! Four days off and I'm NOT getting anything done - or at least not what I think I should get done. I was going to do a mystery quilt that was being done by one of my Yahoo groups, FabricaholicsAnonymous and also start on the Quiltville mystery. I have fabrics pulled for both of them ( and no trip to the store for anything! ) but I haven't cut a single thing. The Quiltville mystery is sort of an ongoing one, and her patterns will use up lots of stash! The Fabricaholics is a New Years Eve mystery,,, think I will print out the pattern and make it later.

All is not lost though,,, I have been working on the quilt that I started at retreat the first of December. I never showed anything that I did when there, but now all the blocks are finished ( all 120 of them ). This was a kit that I picked up at the local quilt shop by our retreat place,,, I wasn't so crazy about the pattern but loved the colors of the fabrics used.DSC02190 This is it laid out on the living room floor - color could be a little better in the picture - the lights are all different neutrals, its a very scrappy quilt. There is a great floral that will be the border and pulls all the colors together. You can see my Schnoodle, walking across the layout. DSC02191 GEE, thanks Webster!!! as I'm taking pictures, he decides that this is just the best place to roll around, LOL guess he likes the quilt already!DSC02192 Silly puppy,,, ( I couldn't help but laugh at him,,, he looked at me as if to say " What's the problem?"

Well, I put it all back together and the rows are all ready to be put together.

I WILL GET THIS DONE THIS WEEKEND!!! (( see my resolve??!! ))

Pets love to get involved in our quilting, don't they? I call my chihuahua the "Block Scrambler" b/c he likes to run back and forth and rearrange the blocks when I am trying to arrange them.

really pretty quilt! And don't guilt-trip yourself if you don't get everything done every day - it will be far more enjoyable if you work at "your" pace and don't push yourself so hard... :)
