Catch up and Complete Week

This week was a catchup and complete week.... I had several projects that needed to be done for some friends.... a new tote bag for one.... 2 blankies embroidered with names for another and a set of 8 beanbags for a third...........

Antoehr UFO bites the dust also... that's #8 for this year!!! My WOB pile is building.... snowman, placemats and now this table mat need their bindings yet... not bad... 5 done with 3 to go.......

I purchased another 16" pillow form...that will get used this week hopefully... found a pattern in my stash for a flip pillow and since I can't seem to find any 12" pillow forms anywhere I'll have to do the 16" one.........I also picked up a quilters dream batting to try it... I'm a warm and natural/white person myself but they tell me this stuff is thinner and warmer and easier to use........ we'll see

This is also 100% cotton so it might work for tater bakers too.... since I've found that the warm and natural/white isn't 100% cotton like they said it was.... and I'm not paying for ** special tater batting**....... hmmmmmm

I also finished up my Bitty Blocks for March ... aliens and teacups... I'll post a pic here... since I can't post them on Flickr til March 1st.... I really had fun with both of these........

I also got caught up on my embroidery club blocks... 9 embroidered coffee themed blocks... with a 12 fabric scrappy set of borders in browns, tans and a hint of blue... I think they came out kinda nice..... I'll start putting it together as soon as I figure out my layout and if I want a big mat or a smaller one and side mats... oooooooooooo decisions...decisions........... lol

Not much progress on the scarf this week... but 2 blue and 2 white color blocks done... gotta get that thing done and gone since my handwork is starting to pile up..

All in all it was a productive week and hoping to have a good week this week too! Have embroidery club tuesday nite and a beginner paper piecing class on saturday to teach so I need to spend some quality time with my machines during the week...

Have a wunderful one!!
