Between my laundromat decompression sewing from Saturday and my NASCAR race watching sewing on Sunday, a lot of changes are visible on the design wall. Block 7 for the En Provence quilt, plus two sashing pieces are done.

All 12 alternate blocks for the Christmas Angels quilt are up on the design wall. Ten of the blocks are completed, two blocks still have a couple of seams that need to be sewn.

The dark fabric in the blocks is a dark green, not black. Angels was my May UFO. I haven't decided yet if I'll start on the focus blocks are just put this one away once the alternate blocks are all done. The plan wasn't to finish all the UFOs on the list, but to at least move them along. I've done that with this one. But if I can continue to work it in with the other projects on the list for this month it will stay out.
Lastly, I finished off the small green fan blocks for this year's Rainbow Scrap Project.

These blocks are 3.5", while the large blocks are 7.5" unfinished. Now I'm ready to get started on the yellow versions of these blocks.
It was a pretty productive weekend. It's going to be a busy week, but I'm hopeful that I can work in a solo sewing retreat next weekend. I need a break after all the graduation, college registration, visiting friends activites we've had the last few weeks. If the washer doesn't get fixed, there will be another round at the laundromat and I'll definitely need some de-stressing sewing after that battle!
