Back to quilting stuff

I don't seem to be able to get any sewing/play time in during the week. Just too tired after toiling at "the home". I try to use the weekends to accomplish stuff. I made a list on Friday but promptly lost it. I don't remember what I had planned.

I finally finished constructing the back for the Twister quilt using the schnibble as a center. I had planned on using a lighter fabric to surround it but ended up with the yummylicious chocolate brown print. I also finished up a "10 minute" table runner. I have yet to make one of these bad boys in 10 minutes. And I got caught up on the BOM from the Quilt Room.

Today i decided I needed to tackle the background fabric for our latest swap. 848 squares-one and a half inches and other pieces. I grumbled the whole time I whacked off those bad boys. This is not going to be a quickly quilt

Henry is insisting on sitting on my lap right now. He keeps looking up and I swear he is thinking "when is she moving over to the couch." I think he is feeling chilly today. I put the flannel sheets on the bed yesterday and last night he was in his usual under the covers position.

Need to go find another project-I have some Dr. Seuss fabric for pillowcases for the little girls.

Sounds like we need a GO! cutter for all those squares!!! I have dinner in the crock pot and dishes going. Still need to vacuum, do laundry, and get to the sewing machine. I made Dr. Seuss pillowcases yesterday (for me:)

I was overwhelmed with fatigue after getting tose pieces cut andHenry needed a nap as well. Now I'm up and he is back on my lap.

I hope I never hear ANYONE complain about 168 little nine patches...I may bring out the inner "Mel" in me.

There will be lots of half square triangles in our future.
