Happy Dance Friday

Its Friday!!!!

I am looking forward to a long 3 day weekend and it will start today at 12:00 noon!

My yard work is slowing down some now after a few weeks of being very busy in that area. I still have lots of things I'd like to get done in the yard, but will work on them as I can. Almost daily watering will be needed, at least until some of the newer plants get established.

Now that the hot weather is upon us, I hope to spend more time in my sewing room. After work and cooking supper last night I made this clothespin bag. It seems that when I make several of these for my Etsy Shop, they sit there for a few weeks, then all of a sudden they all sell in a few days time. So I would like to make a few more of these to restock.

I have a couple of quilting projects in progress that I would like to work on. There are two baby boy scrap quilt tops in my basket that are ready to be quilted. I hope to make the quilt sandwich for these and prepare them for machine quilting. I also am soon expecting a new baby nephew and want to start a special quilt for him. Also, there is the wedding gift quilt that I planned last year that I want to work on, even though the couple was married in January!

Other sewing projects I want to work on are these great tutorials for a GOOFY DOLL, these PILLOW CASES and this TRAVEL CAR MAT.

I am also wondering if I should start this Postage Stamp Quilt Along, even though it has been going on for a few months. One can never have too many quilts in progress!

Oh well, half the joy in sewing, gardening, and homemaking.... is the dreams!

Happy Friday!

You are going to be busy, busy, busy! I bought a cute little pillowcase from Goodwill that looks like someone made it. It fits a small travel pillow perfectly (or a kid's pillow).If I can remember I'll take a pic. for you. I keep it in my car... love it! I hope you will do the postage stamp quilt along and then gift it to me. LOL It is beautiful!!!

Debbie, I love that Mary Engelbreit fabric! Right now I'm working on a quilt top with 3 inch fussy cuts from it. Yellow, blue and red really make the colors "pop"!

I was excitedly telling my husband about a quilt I want to make, while the one I'm working on is not quite finished, and I have a table runner in progress too. He said, "One quilt at a time, dear!" and I just laughed! LOL I told him he didn't understand the world of quilting if he thought just one at a time was enough! ;) I'm sewing the binding on the back of my very first quilt finish tomorrow. I'm so excited!

She's Here! Victoria!

Its been an exciting week! Victoria arrived on Monday and I kept her brother for 3 days. Only bad thing is that today I am home from work ...
