A little more progress

I finished the Esmerelda top this past week and I even got it basted yesterday…I plan to spend a good part of today knocking out the quilting and maybe even get it bound. I would really like to get it in the mail next week 😉


I also made a receiving blanket with some of the left over fabric!


Even though I have so many projects in flight…I couldn’t stop myself from starting a new scrappy project – ugh!! I didn’t have enough energy to work on one of those projects but I wanted to sit down and sew…so… I pulled out my yellow scrap bin and just started sewing some of the scraps together. I kept adding pieces and strips until I had a piece big enough to cut a 10″ square. And then I made more… 6 in total! I have no idea where this is going but it sure is fun!



The last two weeks of visitors caught up with me and the scale…I knew I was going to be up by a few pounds so I chickened out and skipped my WW meeting!! I’m already back on track and I’ll feel better about weighing in next week :-p


That’s about all for now, enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Esmerelda is looking great! Scrap sewing is quickly becoming a favorite passion for me — I made a couple of pillow covers and really love the results.

    Good luck with your next WW weigh in! With the heat and rain I haven’t done any walking, thankfully no weight gain but I’m going to Aruba with the kids and I’m sure I be singing a different tune once I return home 🙂

    1. I LOVE Aruba!!! We’ve been at least 12 times in the last 15 years…it’s our favorite destination! I hope you have an awesome time 🙂

      I really love the Esmerelda pattern and can see me making it again! Not sure why I’m doing so much scrappy sewing lately, I guess I’m getting in a groove, lol.

      I’ve started walking every morning, just a mile, but it’s making a difference 🙂
