A sewing day

I've been running around like a crazy person the past 3 weeks for work and family things, and haven't gotten many minutes in my sewing room. But I've taken today off work and guess where I'm spending part of my day?

This block is one of the applique blocks for our Saturday Sampler this year. I worked on the hand blanket stitching during the long car rides this weekend when we went to visit the new baby (and his family) in Rapid City. I still have the little round circles to blanket stitch, but the rest of the pieces are done.  And I sewed down the binding for a baby quilt that I'll post about this week.

This morning I cut all everything I need to make the pieced blocks for this month and this afternoon I plan to work on finishing those.  And I have a pillowcase ready to put together.  A bit of random sewing  but I'm just happy to have some time to do any sewing at all.


  1. Nice job on this block - the colors work well together, too. Bravo!

  2. Somehow I missed this block. It's gorgeous! I love the fabrics you used and the design is so sweet.
