A Bit of Stitching Week

I finally managed to get to the long lost sewing machine yesterday.  It was one of those days that I had to stay home and wait for a delivery.  While waiting, I did a bit of sewing. 

First off was the Cherry Spools and Lady Fingers row of the Row by Row Along that Moda Bake Shop is holding.  It is a fast one and I doubt that I will be able to keep up, but will eventually finish it.  My color inspiration comes from the x&+ blocks that Teresa is working on right now.  I love the bright and happy looks of her blocks.

Then I did my yellow Soul Searching block for the RSC14 this month.

It plays nicely with the other five blocks.

I need to share what was in the mail for me when we returned from vacation.  It’s always nice to have surprises waiting for when you return.

First off is a win from a giveaway that Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy had.  Look at all of these yummy colored threads and fabrics.  I’m so excited.

For my fun little mini spools quilt I won all of these amazing patterns from Another Year of Schnibbles.  I was thrilled to win these – especially the Firecracker pattern.  It is one that I have been tempted to make for awhile now.  Thank you Sinta, Sheri and Thimble Blossoms!

It was a party weekend around here.  Sunday’s party was to celebrate the christening of the newest grandbaby – always a reason to celebrate.  (The Godmother is in labor today.)

Oooooo your Row by Row is going to be gorgeous in those colors!!! I can't thank you enough for getting me started on my x&+ blocks :) Your wins are perfect! I think we may be sisters separated at birth because I've been tempted by the Firecracker quilt too! I think I'm going to have to be satisfied watching you make one though - my hands are full as it is LOL!!!

I love all those backgrounds in your blocks. Enjoy that baby

There's nothing like the feeling we get when we get back to sewing. You've got a nice project going, I like spools and have never tried to make the blocks. Yours look great!

Lots of baby happiness in your world! I love the color blocks with the b/w. They are really eye catching and will be fabulous all together in one quilt.
