Finally a Day to Myself

I have not had much time to myself this week.  I took "The Finn" one night. 

Yeah his idea of that night was from 8 pm until 7 am.  Eat, change my diaper, talk to me, fuss, eat, cat nap in 15 minute increments, and repeat.  So not much rest for me.

I did manage to get my barn done for the Quilty Barn Along from Bee In My Bonnet

I made my daughter a little coin purse her birthday.

I had some sun and I took advantage of the fact to take the picture. 

This morning I got my strips cut for my batik strip swap, went to the post office and mailed my daughter's and sister's birthday presents off, as well as my strips for the swap.  I have the whole rest of the day to myself.   

I am way behind on my weekly goals.

FW 2 blocks per week
Jewel box quilt 1 block per week
Country Charmer 1 block per week

Quilty Barn Along --Check
Hugs and Kisses at Christ Quilts--yeah way behind
Quiltmaker Magazine Sunday Mystery Quilt way behind lucky me this one is bi monthly
Mystery Quilt-  Quilt club of America  have the fabric, just have not started to cut yet.

Oh yeah, and I had to order my Warm and White Batting it arrived so I can finally work on sandwiching my Easy Street.  Also Ginger Rose has all the borders so I can get the backing prepared and start getting that sandwiched and work on the machine quilting. 


  1. I like your blue barn, I'm making the barn blocks too!

    1. Thanks I had a fight with this one. I try to use fabrics from my stash. This one was scraps left from a top I made my youngest daughter when she was in high school. It had little embroidered dragon flies on it. Yeah that kind of messes up the fabric so trying to get it to be kind of straight was quite the challenge.

  2. he is a cutie pie.
    love the barn block.
    I have the pattern for the little purse and the fabric and form but have not taken the time to make one or two. I am a little bit nervous about it I think.

  3. "The Finn" is a doll baby! =D I look forward to having some sleepless nights someday with my grand baby. =)


Thanks for dropping in to visit.
