I got in to a little bit of everything this weekend. Variety is the spice of life!
Quilt-cam!! I sewed with Bonnie and managed to chain all of my Unit 1s through the machine during that time.

Was "hair" day. I had to venture out in the weather in the sleigh on wheels to get my hair cut. Someday I will grow up and buy an "adult" car instead of a sports car. But I'm not planning that anytime soon! Once I got home, I pressed open all those Unit 1s, clipped the corners and stacked them neatly:

Then I assembled a toy bin that I got to use to start my "Scrap Users System" like Bonnie recommends. I even got a little ambitious and pulled out a box of scraps and started sorting and cutting.
I could actually use two of these ... one for lights and one for darks, but for now I'm just going to put a divider in the baskets. They will fill fast though because I'm finding scraps that I've stuck EVERYWHERE!!
I made a quick trip to Quilts by Phyllis to drop off the baby blankets I finished last week and couldn't resist picking up some fabric to make the Love Me Tender Table Runner.
I finished the Love Me Tender Runner:

I had enough fabric left to cut out 4 more blocks. I think I may put them together for a little wall hanging. I'll have to pick up more border fabric though.
Then I started a new kit I got from Connecting Threads (which is now sold out) called the Spinning Stars Table Topper. I cut the whole quilt and made the first Unit. I just need to square these up.

And last but not least, I cut the pieces for the 148 Unit 2s for Lazy Sunday. I cut the background for the Unit 3s too, but I haven't gotten in to the purples yet to cut them. I forget we have so much time between steps on this one. I'm trying to pace myself so I don't finish too far ahead of the next clue.

Back to reality tomorrow .... *sigh*
