Weekend Sewing

Saturday I spent the afternoon with a friend of mine who I haven't seen in a month since she found a new job and we don't work together anymore. After we went out to lunch we decided to make softies. Generally I thought we would make a few and have a good ol' time together... but both of our softies thwarted those plans and between fabric choices and pattern issues, it took us around 5 hours to finish lol. We did however have a FABULOUS time together... and both finished our softies... so in the end I would say it was a success!

I made a crazy little bug and she made this cool Jamaican pony... or at least that is what we are calling it lol.

I was pretty lazy most of today because I have a headcold again... or the same one that just decided to flare up and make me very sleepy and stuffed up, ugh. But I was able to get my 2 bee blocks for the month finished this evening so I am VERY happy about that!

This month's Queen Bee wanted tangerine/orange/lemon colors for a beautiful citris dresden wedge quilt. I was disappointed on Thursday to see that my Joanns did not carry the Easy Dresden tool but luckily I was able to order it on Friday from Amazon and it arrived on Saturday, much to my surprise and delight! I had til the end of the month to mail these but I'd prefer that she receive them by the end of the month, so I was glad to finish them up today. It was fun trying a new block and picking out these bright Summer colors for my bee member. 3 months down and 3 more to go!!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! Booooooooooo to Monday morning looming just around the corner tho, agh!
