Well, I toughed it out and finished my Schibbles "Bibelot".  I used Moda"s "Sugar Pop".  I'm still not sure how much I like it, but it is now on the quilting pile!

I almost forgot!!  I finished a block AND the setting corners for my "Generals Wives" BOM.

I also did a little cleaning in my sewing room today and found some more blocks for this quilt and another BOM.  YEAH!

I have been sewing all day.  Here is what I have accomplished:

These pillowcases will be part of April's FNSI

It has taken me six hours to get five rows done on my Schnibbles!  I only have six more days to get it finished!

I also watched Tiger win for the first time in 2+ years.

Something keeps invading my blog.  It highlights a word and then asks you to take a survey.  PLEASE IGNORE THIS, IT IS NOT MY DOING AND I WILL FIND OUT WHO/HOW IT IS HAPPENING!!!

No golf this weekend.  There is a big men's tournament.  That means I have gotten to sew most of Friday and Saturday.

I have finished five pillowcases:

Elisabeth Studio Fabric

High Fashion

Timeless Treasures "Fleur"
I also started my "Granny Squares" quilt using Moda's "Lovely:

I have my March Schnibbles cut and three blocks done but I am using Moda's "Sugar Pop" and so far I am not happy with it?!

Oh yeah, I also finished a "Cat" quilt for next year's Humane Society.  I will show pics after I get it quilted.  I finished quilting one quilt for my sister--four to go!  AND, two friends stopped by yesterday with FIVE quilts that they want quilted.  I should be downstairs right now!  I think that's it for today.  Tune into tomorrow to see what's up!

I have joined a new BOM Club.  This time Sinta has started a club for those of us who have joined BOMs and are WAY BEHIND!  Head on over to Pink Pincushion and sign up.  She has prizes!

I played golf this morning and then came home and finished quilting another baby quilt.  I call this "Sail Away".

PS Darling Sister, your first quilt is on the quilter and about half finished!

I was able to get two quilts quilted last night--both baby quilts:  I quilted lines in the shape of the block.

Sherbet Pips

Also, "Blush" Baby Girl Quilt.  I used a "Man in the Moon" stencil on each block and then filled in with "pebbles", but it doesn't "POP"!

I still have to bind both quilts and then head back downstairs for more quilting.

My big plans for the week-end were to spend time downstairs catching up, again, with my quilting.  However, I am a member of a group called "Heirloom Home Arts" who are Women Focused on Sustainable Life Skills.  One of the member's of the group is the organizer for the Tri-Cities Antique Show...with a Twist of Vintage.  And I was asked if I would like to display some of my quilts and pillowcases.  I'm thing YEAH, maybe I can whittle some of my stacks down, AND, give me extra money to buy more fabric!!  I will be tied up Friday evening and all day Saturday. 

PS  Some of the members are displaying their Vintage Trailers!  Stop by to check them out and say "Hi"!

Friday Night Report:  Two pillowcases sold

Today is my lucky day.  Although, I lost fifty cents to my golfing buddy!  I received my "Stocking" from Darlene and Cheryl for "Christmas Through The Year" for January.  I received a "Luna Notte" charm pack, a heart pin cushion and a "Lil Twister" table topper.  Thank you, thank you!

I also found out that I won two charm packs of  Moda's Tend the Earth by Deb Strain  from Bear Paw Quilts and More in the February Schnibbles drawing.

Just to top it all off, I bought a lotto ticket!!

PS  I only had two numbers on my lotto ticket!
