Friday Night Sew In report

I managed to spend a good chunk of time sewing yesterday evening.  DH took Zeke, our dog, to a 5 p.m. vet appointment so he was gone from 4 to 8.  Ah…so much gets done when I am home alone.  I can never figure out why that is. 

I finished the block that is due for January for Quilting Block Swap Adventure.  I also finished my contribution toward Fiona’s goat in the Sisterhood of the Travelling Goat.  Only sneak peeks are available of these two items.

Here is the block for Alexis.  Yes that is Origins fabric.  I bought some at the quilt store in America before Christmas and don’t know what I’m going to do with it. 


And here is a little peek at Fiona's goat…


I feel so accomplished Smile



  1. You should feel accomplished... I love the handwork on the goat... too cool!

    I was so fascinated by the caribou on your header... had to sit and look at it for a while.


  2. so you should - the block looks great.... and it is wonderful to see my goat again.... looking very well and happy....

  3. Love your goat. Some where I missed out on that one. Amazing how much we get done when there are no interruptions! LOL Nola

  4. I love it if I get some "home-alone" time - I too get so much done.
