Slowly but surely I am making progress this week! Having some time off work is great and the miserable weather definitely limits the options for other things I could be doing.
I finally managed to get CeLynn's October bee blocks done
and in the post to her. She picked a super cute owl block and, with some
lovely fabrics to work with, I think they turned out nicely!
We also did a 6.5" signature block for the back:
I spent a lot of yesterday making up a little something for Susan as part of her long overdue giveaway prize from the Summer Sewing list. Its gone in today's post with a Terrain charm pack - but no pics until it arrives! I want it to be a surprise.
Then I got working on the blocks for my friend's baby quilt. I took Leanne's advice and decided to piece what I had already cut before doing any more cutting (good advice!) and now have 25 blocks done! I think they are going to work quite nicely - I know there is an over supply of red blocks here - haven't done a lot of the blues and pinks yet so it will be more balanced.
I have some faves in these blocks - like this gorgeous flower:
This fairy princess - although I don't know what fabric its from!
The willow wren:
And of course, not forgetting my owls:
And lastly, my very last bit of Sherbet Pips:
Have to go to work tomorrow but hoping I might make some more progress on Friday when I am off again! Linking up to some really talented ladies over at Freshly Pieced:
