Little of this and that

Went for my walk
My daffs and grape hyacinths are all up bringing some much needed color to  their the world

Woke up this morning to my light on again
I am thinking these guys are the culprit

Not much sewing going on 
Easter prep and the jury waiting game

So decided to hand quilt this

Whats happening in your sewing room,?

Blue but happy

Still cutting blues for my borders
Then will try and find some lights too 
And cut them up
I usually dont have a lot of lights so will need to be creative
Some of my others are actually backs of fabrics

This was a jelly roll race top I found that needs to be quilted 
So many projects.......
Not enough time

Called and no jury duty so far
Then had some visitors

Look closer

Three of them
Eating cherries on the ground

And one larger one keeping an eye on me.

So fun to see them so close.

Thanks and keep on praying
I have to call again Fri for next week

More little finishes

The squares I received from Sharon also had some partial pieces started
Because  i don't know what the original plan was for them, I made my own plan
These were in strips light and dark so I took the strips down to rows of 5
Added to make the others for in between 
And sewed them into a table runner 
I added the greenish blue border and the top is done. Just have to quilt and bind

Next I took those solid log cabin blocks i had
Quilted them thinking they were going to be a table topper too. But they whispered i wanna be a zippy bag
So i made this huge one for my sister in law

I finished off my sewing by finishing up the mugrug

Productive day. Gotta call tonight for jury duty. If i go in i wont be blogging that early as it will be a long day. I need to get the bus at like 530 or something crazy.and wont get home till after 7. Ughhh
Please continue to pray i get the one day
I just want it over already.your whole life for 3 weeks is on hold

Blue blue blue

I cut some blue squares 

Jacky sent a large pile of blue blocks

Packages from across the country came

Bringing blue strips 

Life is looking blue........
For Jury duty gotta call again
I was so happy when they said dont come in

What a pain in the petutie
I guess i call each day till they tell me to come in for the 3 week period

Then you serve one day or one trial
I am hoping one day for me

Movin along........

This is an ongoing project
I have strips of all sizes at the ready
I have always loved this quilt
As birch trees are my favorite
Some solids  and then trim the blocks and it will be a top too
I think i have 5 blocks so far done

And rolls and rolls of strips

These will go into my looooooong term project
They are 1.5 squares 
Will be 4 patches and matched to 2.5 squares of background. Thinking white but maybe not

This needs to be finished

This needs to be started 

These are almost empty again
I swear i fill about 20 bobbins a week!

My 1.5 4 patches for reference 
Tiny. But fun

Gonna gather up my next focus and leader ender projects and see what the rest of April and May brings

Just playing

I am just playing in between projects
I know i know.......
Dangerous for me as i get easily distracted 

Made these 2 tiny blocks  out of cutoffs from hst
I just think they are cute 
Maybe will be made into a purse or tote later

Then i cut up some blues

Got quite a stack
For cutting by hand 
So will make the 9 patches
For my star border

And thought i would make 9 patches
In the rsc colors 
Red. Green. Yellow. Aqua
Funny how by doing this you can see where your stash is lacking
I do not buy a lot of yellows
Not sure why
It is a sunny cheerful color

Cleaning up a bit around here while i reorganize for my next project
