Making Progress

In my last post I was looking for my mojo and I think just the act of writing about it made it show up! Later that day I went in to the sewing room and knocked out two more colors for the improv blocks and continued to work on it throughout the week.

I now have a finished top! It measures 57″ square

I’ve already cut the batting and I’ll be piecing the back today while watching football! I’d really like to get this quilted and bound in the next few days – I REALLY need a finish :-p

I’ve also signed up for the Granny Cabin sew along hosted by Then Came June on IG. This is the first week so there’s still plenty of time to join in if you’re interested. I pulled my fabrics from my FQ bins following the same color themes in the pattern but using prints

I’ve already had to switch out the #1 fabric because I realized it wasn’t a complete FQ – I had cut into it at some point for a different quilt 😦 It’s ok, I had plenty of dark navy choices!

One of my neighbors asked if I could make some golf seat covers to be used as giveaways for her club. I had made a couple for her a while back so I had the basic pattern. I went to my local quilt shop last week and picked up a few yards of golf themed fabric and a neutral green flannel for the back.

I knocked out these two yesterday

Any Downton Abbey fans here?

I’ve been impatiently waiting on the movie to release, I’ve missed that show so much!! ❤ My local theater hosted a Paint Night event before the movie and yes! we painted a Downton Abbey scene! It was so much fun, they played DA Trivia while our background scenes dried a bit and the theater gave away 1st, 2nd, 3rd place prizes for their favorite painting…and guess who came in 2nd? Woohoo! I got 2 movie passes, 2 popcorns and 2 sodas – Nice!

Here’s the prize winning painting :-p

I was so pleased with the movie – it was like visiting with old friends again!!

I splurged quite a bit this past week so I decided to ‘skip’ my WW weigh in yesterday… ugh, I hate going when I know I’ve gained 😦 I’ll get back on track this week so I’m not tempted to skip any more!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That’s all for now – enjoy the rest of your weekend!! 🙂

    1. Hi Tierney! The best part about my colorful quilt is I used up almost all of the small bits in my scrap bins – Yay! I loved the DA movie, it was like a long overdue visit with old friends – so warm & comforting ❤ I hope you get to see it soon 🙂
