Friday Friday Friday

"Friday Friday Friday" was a phrase that a friend used to sing to his daughter on Friday mornings!

I was called into work last night about 8 pm and got home at 2:30 am.  Let me tell you that I was very tired.  My feet even hurt.  To keep myself awake between tests I worked on my "General's Wives" quilt, which I will show you Monday for BOM Rehab.  I made two more totes:
Small Tote using Alexander Henry Fabric

Large Grocery Tote using Sweetwater's "Lucy's Crab Shack" Canvas

Large Grocery Tote I finished earlier in the week!  The fabric is Alexander Henry.

The dogs let me sleep in until about 6:30 am when they started playing on the bed.  So, I got up and very slowly got my chores done and sat down to my sewing machine for a couple of hours before my hair appointment.  I bought a kit to participate in Pam Buda's "Forget Me Not Sew-along" and got caught up with four blocks!  They are suppose to be 5" but some how mine are only 4 7/6"

Have you been viewing the "Bowls with Borders" with Madam Samm.

I love that pattern but have never paper pieced before.  Well, today I practiced and look what I made paper pieced trees:

I still need to practice before I try my bowlies!  No golf tomorrow so will work on my Irish Chain Quilt!  And my "Tetris" block.

Have a great week-end.

  1. Lovely blocks, Sandy. I especially liked your trees. I would like to try one. Did you make up the pattern? Or find it on the internet?
