5. Finish new quilt for Bunny's bed: IN PROGRESS

I'd love to have more finished since my last post on this, but I keep telling myself that it's not too shabby really. I just keep plodding along, one project at a time, and it's amazing what you can get done if you just keep at it. My scrappy quilt was bound and washed last night, and I've been working on my Weekender this evening. I was at the "just shoot me if I have to cut out one more piece of interfacing" stage earlier today, but now that I'm actually sewing, it's a little more fun. Can't wait to share my bag and my finished scrappy quilt  -- and even the extra scrappy pillow I added at the last minute -- with you all next week.

Miss Bear came down with a case of stomach flu this morning . . . life is never boring around here. Now that I've just gotten her and little Mouse to sleep, I'm off to curl up with my husband and an old movie (anyone else love Gene Tierney & Dana Andrews in Laura?) and store up my energy for whatever excitement tomorrow will bring.

Sweet dreams...

Linking up with Kelsey and the 100 Day Hustle.

  2. "Not too shabby"?????? You make me feel positively lazy. If you are anything like me your sewing time is YOUR time - when you can unwind and get in the groove.

  5. You are definitely on par - 50% done in 50 days! Would love to see pictures of your other finishes :-) And I like how the low volume on your scrappy quilt has assorted prints and manages to frame the colors so well. Happy hustling!

  7. Your list is looking great and I hope Miss Bear is feeling better! I felt the exact same way with cutting the interfacing and ironing it on wasn't much better LOL. It is so worth it in the end though!
