What a Great Weekend!

Maybe great is a bit of a stretch but I sure enjoyed it.  It was nice to have a Saturday with out any obligations or errands to run!  So what did I do, I reorganized my sewing room just a little to make turning on my light over my chair where I do hand sewing easier to turn on.  I removed some extra wires I didn't need any more, an old extension cord and a phone cord.  I clean off some flat surfaces.  I tend to be a piler, so it is nice to see clear space again.  Then I sewed. 

I finally added the last two borders to my Fresh Picked Flowers.

I really like it now that all the borders are on.  My next step is to machine applique down those scallops.  I still haven't come up with how I am going to quilt it, but I'll leave that for another day. 

Then I pulled out my Farmer's Wife Sampler book and fabric and between Saturday and Sunday I made four blocks.  I haven't worked on this in a while and it really felt good!  I realized as I went to bed that makes my total 77 blocks, so I hit the 75 blocks completed Achiever's List!

I did also tack down Yo-Yos on two blocks!  Not pictured here.

Happy Stitching!

Those fabrics on you FWQ blocks all go great together. Congrats on reaching 77 blocks (guess I should go and check out the other 73).
