My Sew Weekend

This weekend was supposed to be the big sew weekend, and
it was, and it was fun, and I am happy  now. Well, I wasn't really unhappy before, so I guess I am just happier!

 My first goal was to get my fall foliage quilt cut out. After playing with the fabrics I am not sure fall foliage is what I should call it.... but Little Bit liked the name.
       Yes - it is cut out, and I even sewed 4, almost 6 sets together ( 5 and 6 are in the halfway stages)

My second goal was to make 10 Betty blocks - I did not get 10, I have 6 completed and three in the works. I am sort of being a perfectionist on these. If you know me, you know that perfection is tough for me to attain, but I am even Pinning these blocks so I have a chance. Do any of you pin your blocks?

My third goal was to take pictures of all the Quilts of Valor that have arrived this last week. Oh - ALMOST - I did. Today I had a bunch of Quilts out across the couches and I got called for a QOV emergency.... want to know about it? 

 Hee hee - you have to come back tomorrow - it deserves its own post!

I didn't even get to the other two goals, so they will just have to roll over.... There is always tomorrow right?

That was a super busy day!! I managed to get thru 2 stacks of green fabric trying to get it cleaned, separated & restacked in my sewing room. There are only 3 most stacks or red, 2 blue, and many!!!! more dodads/gadgets needed to make the sewing room work. I'm so tired and I don't do half of what you do.

Sounds like a fun time! I usually pin unless I don't care about the accuracy so much.
