Sew Much Sewing...

Well, first of all, I am blogging sitting on my bed on my new laptop. It is pretty exciting, and I'm getting better at using the little finger plate thingy. I got the chance to get away for the weekend and sew for hours straight. I was the only chic sewing at a big scrapbooking retreat but it was still great. After all I was with my crafty sister in law. I had to share pictures of the hydrangeas that greeted me when I returned...

I worked on two new projects mostly. I was really in the mood to develop some new patterns of my own and just play around with fabric. It was great to get that big block of time to just plug away.
I ended up with two quilt tops, one lap quilt size and the other a wall hanging. I will blog more details when I finish these up.

Unfortunately, I didn't get to the wonderful Christmas quilt I mentioned in the earlier posts. I have a little time to work on that before the holidays. :) I will also be starting a few projects for my mom this week and I'll share those as I am working on them.

I hope to post a bit this week but next week my husband has time off and we will be celebrating "family time" so it might be a little quiet over here on the blog.
I hope to get more work done on my daughter's roman shade this week too...we'll see what actually gets done!
I hope your week has started on a good note too-
