This week (February 6 to 12) I….


Had a really busy week and tonight I am tired….

Stayed in Whitehorse two nights as I had classes at the LQS in the evening… Stayed with my friend and we stayed up too late talking… Here’s what my piece looked like after the second class…

And here’s what it looked like after the third class…. I spent lots of time the third night unpicking after I sewed my first circle with too much tension on the wool and it caused puckers in the piece Sad smile.   I did get the circle redone and it looks great, but I need to do about 5 – 6 more circles.  I didn’t get a chance to make any progress on it this weekend either….

Kept up with my exercise program, walking Monday through Thursday, snowshoeing on Friday and Saturday and skiing today….

Celebrated my birthday … it was on Wednesday but we had a family dinner this weekend.   Also many birthday wishes on Facebook and a fruit platter party at work…

Made my 6 inch blocks for the January/February swap… they will go in the mail tomorrow….

And made one of my hexie flowers for the February swap….

Sewed in all the thread ends on the Fairy quilt but no other progress there. 

Started cutting a new mystery Christmas quilt during the Christmas Quilt Along yesterday. 

Whew!  No wonder I’m tired….  I’m heading to bed…

Edited to add.... Not so fast... I almost forgot to show the lovelies I received in the mail this week!

From Jolanda my six inch blocks for December/January and three packages of green tea from "the only plantation in Europe"!  I can't wait to try it.


From Alberta, my January hexies, 100 two inch squares for a private swap we did and a great little sewing kit...


From Rebekah and Samantha 100 two inch blocks each from Mary's scrappy swap.


Thank you all!
