Weekend Stitching: Lots of Little Stuff

The weekend went way to fast.  I didn't spend as much time in the sewing room as I had hoped.  The Scientist in Training needed to do some shopping for her dorm room Saturday, then on Sunday we took My Guy out for ice cream for Father's Day and ended up wandering through a local nursery as he wanted new plants to replace the ones done in by the Oklahoma sun.  Oh, but My Guy did resolve my electrical outlet power problem.  He reset the breaker, so I'm back in business there.  Apparently, I didn't push it completely to the off position. 

There's no big leaps and bounds to show off from the sewing room.  Christmas Angels is still up on the big design wall, not much change there. I'm still assembling the pieced borders.

Two of the three pink blocks for Squared Away are up on the small design wall.

 I changed the orientation of the inner HSTs, I didn't like the original block lay out.  There is one more pink block that needs to be started.  The fabric has been chosen, it's just not cut out yet. 

Everything else is lined up in front of the sewing machine waiting for the next round of chain piecing. 

There's two of the red, white and blue star blocks under construction, segments of the pieced border for Christmas Angels, and then the sawtooth stars for Inverted Star's pieced border.  So there's been progress, just nothing that's really photo worthy.

  1. Happy stitching this week.

  2. Those are scrumptious pink blocks. They will make a pretty quilt, and that's a very impressive Christmas angels quilt.

  3. Lots of progress going on for sure! I changed the block layout too on those RSC sampler blocks.

  4. I love the movement in your Christmas Angels piece -- it's such a fun top!! Have a great week, friend! :)

  5. Looking great! Those pink blocks are going to be darling.

  6. Lots of little progress adds up. Glad you got your power problem resolved. Thank goodness your computerized sewing machine wasn't damaged.

  7. It's all looking wonderful. Love the Christmas angels.

  8. Sometimes the rest of life does need to be dealt with. I like your pink blocks. Is SIT staying at college over the summer? Or is she planning ahead?

  9. I like the way your pieced borders on Christmas Angels are forming those diamonds - that looks really neat! My sewing machine looks a lot like yours - pieces and parts laid out, ready to be sewn together whenever I get a moment!

  10. maybe a post it note list is what I need:)

  11. You are an organized quilter! When you have the time you'll be ready to go!

  12. You're pretty good about taking photos and blogging, even when things are in the "not so photogenic" stage. I wish I had your persistence about that!

  13. Your pink blocks are looking good! Think I will head down to the basement tonight to see how many teals I can scrounge up!
