Sew In Results

Last night I participating in Heidi's Friday Night Sew-In.  In the past when she has planned these I organized some friends to sew together.  However, all of my sewing buddies were busy last night.  Sadness.  It did end up being for the best though.  I spend considerably more time than anticipated making enchiladas to take to friends who recently had their first baby.  So while I didn't make nearly the dent into the to do list that I was hoping for, a couple new parents don't have to worry about cooking this evening.  A worthwhile trade off.

I did accomplish some things though.

I completed another Quilter Bee's block- this time for Lisa.  Lisa's month was actually November, but because of life's craziness we are all just now working on her blocks.  She picked the Churn Dash block and send us some lovely reproduction prints.

I also started working on another 9 patch quilt.  My mom's birthday is December 27th and I decided I was going to give her a quilt.  I had another quilt in mind, but since all she did was swoon over my last 9 patch quilt, I decided I should really give it to her.  After all, that's the one she loved and actually cried when she opened it.  But alas, it was quite a sad break up.  I miss the 9 patch quilt quite a bit as it was the perfect snuggle size.  So now it begins, round two.  I am roughly halfway through making the blocks.

Also, as a reminder, you still have time to enter in the 100th post giveaway!

Nicole I love that you made enchilada's for the new parents. We had people do that for us when we had our kids and it makes such a huge difference.

And I can't beleive you are on your 2nd 9 patch. I'm still on my 1st.

I'm glad you were able to get some sewing done though.
