mini marathon

I had a mini marathon sewing weekend.... I made two christmas table mats from Atkinson designs... they are small mats and one medium mat from the same pattern for halloween...the medium is about 32" across. I have to back and batt them and then work on quilting and binding this week. I also completed 2 wonky house blocks for the august bee obsessed quilt block swap and 3 many blocks for the september bee obsessed quilt block swap ( I love being a head of the game) I also completed 24 bitty blocks for the september bitty block swap... those themes are circus/carnival and halloween.... can't post pics of those yet... not til september comes but at least I'm ready!

I finished quilting and binding the coastal door/party banner and that will go out in wednesdays mail.....

it was a good weekend for sure! but something was missing........... my wisconsin barn block for this week... jen of cre8tive quilter is having laptop issues....and that's not good! hopefully she'll be back in business next week and whatever is wrong is just minor!

all the pics are posted on the flickr site

take a peek when you get a chance. I have some hand sewing to work on tonite...and yes... I found my yoyo makers so I can get started on yoyo's for a few projects

til next week... take care and stay cool
