Sewing Marathon!


What a busy week!   Thursday I was at work and had gotten an email about an Estate sale of a quilter -- so since it is winter and we are not busy at work -- I took a longer lunch and went and check it out -- here are some of the goodies I got!!  I felt so lucky to get 2 of Kim Diehls books and a 7 yard bundle of halloween fabrics that all co-ordinate!  And then lots of other pretty fabrics - they were selling for $3 - $4 a yard and this was Moda and Thimbleberries, you could not pass it up.

Then when I got home on Thursday I thought I have got to get some Me Time in the sewing room and I have been sewing all weekend!  It has been wonderful!!  Here is one of my projects it is for a friendship bag swap on Flickr -- I just love this bag and may have to make 1 for me!!

Then I am working on the Bee in my Bonnet Row quilt -- we got instructions this week for Row 10  -- as you can see I am behind!   I was further behind on Thursday  night -- since then I completed 2 rows -- now only 5 rows behind!!  Love the way it is turning out -- but with 30's it is hard not to love it!


Here is my first UFO finish of the year -- I completed this a week or so ago when I was Queen on the Stashbusters list -- it is the Schnibbles called X-rated -- I am going to us in for my dining room table for Valentines day! 

So that is what I have been up to for the past few days!   What are  you working on??

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stitches!

You did do well at that sale and your friendship bag is so cute I think you should definitely make one for yourself!
