A Bit Of Sewing!

Today I recieved this beautiful purse and tablerunner pattern from Julie! She had made the purse a while back and had a photo on her blog, of course I fell in love so later she asked if I wanted the pattern!! I can't wait to make it!!!! Thanks so much Julie!!!!


I finished my applique on my 3 Summer Pond blocks! So I am caught up until December on them!! I also played around with this block! Didn't plan on making a quilt just playing! Then I asked hubby and oldest son what it looked like and they both said, "A shirt with part of a tie" Now how weird is that??? It is supposed to be a butterfly, but I didn't embordier the things on it! Oh well!!!


I stretched out this quilt, pinned it and started handquilting! Nothing major, just something else for me to work on while watching tv. I made the top a few months ago, but I just added the borders on it.


This evening I made 2 more blocks for my Nearly Insane quilt. These are a couple of the easier blocks in this quilt. Lots of fun!



And last before bed, I made one more block for my Civil War Diary quilt!!!! This makes me a total of 73 blocks for this quilt. Only 48 more to go!


I guess that is all for tonight! Need to finish some laundry and go to bed!!!!

I love the bag! The quilt is pretty also. I want to put a quilt in my John Flynn frame to hand quilt but not got started yet. I worked all week at Extension office and not got much done at home. Brought 2 more quilts home to quilt. You sure getting a lot accomplished. You will win the prize. Your blocks are so pretty also.
