Finally getting back to sewing

Its September already and I haven't sewed A stitch since July.  School has started, vacation is over so now I have lots of time.  I hope to finish 3 UFO's this month.  I am doing a mystery quilt by Planet Patchwork on Saturday.

This is step1, 2, 3, & 4 of the Mystery for Relay's summer Mystery

I'm not too happy with the white I chose, its too bright, it would have
looked much better with an off white or cream.  What do you think?

Saturday, June 11

Went to a Baby shower at the park. Had a really nice time. My Granddaughter, Tiffany is having a boy in August.  She received a lot of nice things. I had to drive home in a thunder storm with hard rain and high winds.  The worst I have ever driven in.  I was worn out so I went to bed early.  no sewing today

I have taken pictures of the blocks to post and will post a picture of the finished quilt (when I finish).

NYE Block

I finished my NYE Blocks, I like the look of them, I haven't sewn them together yet as I think want to add sashing.  Have to think some more on that.  Now to get back to RRCB.  More later

The weather has been really nice today.  I really need to get out and do some pruning on my roses, oh well maybe next week.  I really want to finish these two quilt mysteries I have started, but first I just have to finish reading the book I started yesterday, "What the Night Knows" by Dean Koontz.

Raining Again

It is a very dreary day, I think I will curl up with my new book and spend the rest of the day reading and probably napping.
