Finish! HouseCheering


This week I got just enough time in the sewing room while Z wasn't feeling well (thanks for saving it for spring break, Z! /sarcasm) to finish the housecheering gifts I got so close to finishing during last weekend's FNSI. Here they are (click for bigger), presented with a little help from Z herself!

Check out the animals!

Friday Night Sew-In: Finally, some sewing!

Hello, everybody!

You'd probably figured the minstrel had wandered off, and indeed, I got lost under a pile of grading and have only recently managed to find my way back into my sewing room! Just in time to participate in this month's Friday Night Sew-In.

I started out with this, on Friday afternoon:

Hello, March

I'm sneaking in under the wire to get my WIP Wednesday post up!

I was pretty excited to finish my Sliced Coins Quilt-Along quilt, which I named 'Blue Canary' and blogged about here.

It's Echo-cat approved:

At the Rock River Modern Quilt Guild meeting a couple weeks ago, I finished another hand-pieced block, so I'm at 24/25 blocks for the all-by-hand spring wallhanging. It's getting so close! But I'm afraid that's about all the sewing I've managed lately.

This week's stats:
New projects: 0
Completed projects: 1
In progress: 5

I encourage you to check out everyone's WsIP at Lee's--they're all inspirational!
