we interrupt our previously scheduled baby quilt...

...to bring you some emergency projects.
Hot pads for my friend's birthday...
and a quilt for Andy's boss.
It's turning out more modern than I thought it would...I'm not sure it will be to her taste. Or maybe I'm just saying that because it matches my living room really well.

mac and cheese for dinner again?

How do people sew AND get dinner on the table? I tell ya lately every step of the way seems to come at such a high price (not that foregoing my cooking is a very high price to pay...) but I did manage to get all my blocks made and sewn together while neglecting all other duties and encouraging Henry in his mad Star Wars Wii playing skills.

I decided my first stack of blocks were heinously busy when put together, and not wanting to dilute the stew with sashing I just made some really simple square in a square blocks. I think...I like it. Yup, I'm easing right into this girl thing. I may even make the back...PINK!

I love General Conference for so many reasons, one of which is the hand sewing time!! I've been working on these flowers for 6 years now. Not that it should have taken me that long, just that's it's kind of been my take-along-project for a long long time. I always said I would sew it together for my daughter and that's the size it would be. Little did I know how large an undertaking putting it together would be. Am I missing something? Is there an easy way to do this? It is like a wrestling match trying to get these rows together!!

About halfway there...
