I spent most of this weekend getting ready for my surgical vacation tomorrow. I got the house clean-ish and the laundry done. I moved my sewing room to the kitchen since I won't be able to do stairs for a while. I'll be sewing on my Featherweight. I figure there will be lots of sewing and napping for a few days anyway. Maybe I can get caught up on a couple of my BOMs!
I did get in a bit of hand sewing in. I got my first Lucy Boston block done:
I'm using paper pieces ... as you can probably tell from all the threads! I plan on making them out of scraps from other projects. I'll need to decide on a background and highlight fabric though. I think I'll wait until I get a few made to select something.
We made an impromptu trip to take my Mom to lunch for Mother's Day yesterday. I managed to get the binding sewn on one of my little quilts on the trip there and back.
Here's Nala modeling:
And here's the un-modeled quilt:
This is from Tara Lynn Darr's Book "Simply Charming" and the quilt is called Hopscotch. I need to buy some quilt hangers. I wonder why they are so expensive though every time I buy them. I think I need to assign my husband a task of duplicating those little buggers!
