Life is Busy

It has been a crazy few weeks. Spring is finally here! Although I think the rain forgot it was supposed to be here in April. =)
In all the busyness of life I did get some sewing time in.
I was able to sew four more blocks for my BOM quilt.  It is going to be a colorful quilt, but hopefully it will look okay once it is all together.
I have three more in the works. I am going to hand stitch these to the background fabric. I did the top circle last night and it went pretty fast.

And I have a few of the blocks sewn together for the Mama Said Sew quilt.

Feels pretty good to see it all lain out. Feels like I'm actually making some progress on it, slow as it may be.

New Project

I thought I had all my pieces cut out for my Mama Said Sew quilt, but I guess I would benefit from going to school with my kindergartner. =) I was supposed to have 20 different prints but somehow only ended up buying 17. I can count, I really can. So it is on hold until the rest of my prints get here.
In the meantime I started on my Craftsy BOM 2012 blocks.
I need to fix the two on the left. The top block has some points that are a little off. I have sewn and ripped stitches several times trying to fix. I will not be defeated. I WILL fix it. =) (Although you don't notice it as much in the picture.) The bottom block is just a little off. By the time I trim it down to the right size I am going to loss the points on the top and bottom edge. I might just remake the whole block. It is pretty fun trying out all kinds of new techniques.
And just for fun because he is so darn cute, a picture of my little tiger. He loves to help mommy.

New Project in the Works

I finally did it. I cut into my Mama Said Sew fabric. I've had it for a couple of months now and just needed to work up the courage to cut into it.
I don't know why it took so long. I'm excited to see the finished product. It is a pattern in the
Winter 2012 "Best Fat Quarter Quilts" magazine.
My other works in progress are still my table runners. Sick kids and soccer practice slowed down the progress on those the past week. Hopefully I will be able to finish them up this week. That's the goal anyways, we'll see if it happens. =)

I actually won something. This never happens to me. Must be time to head to Las Vegas. =)
I entered a drawing over at Hopeful Threads for some custom labels from Ananemone, and I won.
So excited. I will post a picture of them when I get them.
In other news, I do have a few works in progress and a finish.
I started on the Dresden plate table runner last week, and decided to make a strip table runner also. Just need to add binding to the strip runner and decide how I want to quilt the Dresden plate runner.

I finally finished up this tote last night. It turned out pretty cute. I love the purple chevron fabric. I think it might be one of my favorites.
