Finally some sewing progress!

I actually made a little progress today. Didn't do a whole lot, but I did get a little bit of sewing in. Richard and Hunter were out side most of the day working on the tractor and finally got it going again! Yeah!!!!

First off, I made a set of coasters for my mom.


Then I made a set for me.

Later in the evening, after my nap...I worked on my "shoofly" This is an old photo of it, but all of the blocks are the same so I didn't see the sense of taking another photo. I got 8 more blocks done on it and I need 22 more. I will probably work on it a little more before I go to bed. I just needed a little break. Of course after I get all of the blocks done, then I have to do the setting triangles and borders. Then I'm sure it will be thrown in the pile to be quilted. I have decided that I am going to start stocking up on batting in the next few weeks. I hope to get alot of these quilted over the Winter.
I also got the borders on my Bargello. I didn't take a photo of it, but the borders are just straight borders in one of the dark blue prints. I think I will send it off to the quilters next. I am very happy with the way it turned out.

Oh, I also loaded some photos of my UFO's on the SQUFOChallenge site. It is a newly started Yahoo group, so if anyone is interested in signing up, let me know. It is by invitation only, and I am a moderator, so I will send you the invitation. So here is the deal...you list photos of your UFO's that you plan on finishing within the time frame set for us, send in a fat quarter for every project listed. When it is finished, post another photo. At the end of the time frame, fat quarters will be given to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Very simple and I'm sure we all have plenty of UFO's and extra fat quarters laying around.

Kristie,
I love your coasters! I am going to make some more tomorrow as well, and hope to get a few more projects done. It will be a sewing day for me....yippee!

I think your quilt top is coming along quite nicely. Glad you got to do some fun sewing today. You have had a busy, stressful week.

Oh I love the coasters. I plan on making some more and putting them aside for Christmas presents just don't know when I'm going to get those done. I also loved your quilt and I can't wait to see the bargello done. I'm glad to hear that Hunter must be feeling better it's always amazing how quickly kids bounce back.

Your coasters look great! I was wondering when you were going to start on that Shoefly again!!
