A Lot Going on!

A lot has been happening lately.  First, unfortunate circumstances led to me taking a vacation day yesterday, which led to a few finished projects (yay!).  Squeak had his first BIG baby go boom (yes, this IS what we say when he falls).  Lets just say there was blood involved but no trip to the ER was necessary.  Scared both of us pretty bad though :(. 

Let's start with Friday:

Friday Night Sew In was a much needed chance to get caught up on a few things.  At the end of the night I had no new finished projects but there was definite progress.

A pile of trimmed paper pieced sections ready to be sewed together.

My Madrona Road Mini, which now has the binding machine sewed onto the front and is just waiting to be hand finished.

My newest paper pieced pattern (I modified the pattern after making this block) that has now been quilted and turned into a nearly completed project.  Just needs the binding to be hand sewed on.

Sunday I was able to work on my Super Penguin Blocks that I've been redoing.  Again I must say I am so much happier with this set.

Again I must say I am so much happier with this set.

A few new Dancing Stars blocks.

Another Sea of Stars block.
And fabric, beautiful fabric. I took a break yesterday and went to my LQS.

A new Riley Blake line featuring the cutest owls!  I am in the process of cutting the Monsterz fabric to make Squeak a quilt but I may have to make another one using these.  And Washi---I have heard soooo much about it and finally saw it in person.  I only picked up 1/8 yard cuts of all of these so there will be lots of solids mixed in or lots of small projects.

And look!  I probably would have bought the fabrics just to have these!

A few fabrics for new earbud pouches.  I noticed that my shop is looking pretty neglected and that I have run out of the fabric for my most popular items so it's time to restock.  I thought these little owls would be perfect and who doesn't love a little Flea Market Fancy and Simply Color?!

This was waiting for me when I got home.  I signed up for Pink Castle's Monthly Club-Charming Solids.  Every month you get two charm packs and 6 coordinating fat eights.  How awesome is that?!

I threw together a few Triple Zip Pouches for the Sew Along that is happening.  I have several more that I have already cut and will be putting together throughout the week.
