Finally getting some sewing done...

Wow! It's been over two weeks since my last post. I've been so busy.
My kids were in a school play last week and we have been running like crazy with everything going on.
With working, and fund raising, bake sales, basketball, air cadets, play practices and performances, house cleaning....well a bit of house cleaning anyways. It's been crazy busy. My house is such a mess right now. Oh well, I'll get to it eventually. 

Yesterday, I finally got a chance to do some sewing.
I finished making the center of my mini jelly filled quilt top.
I just need to add the border.
This was all made from my stash.
It's a bright quilt.
I think it will be great for a little boy.
It will make a great play mat as it is bigger then I thought it would be.
I loved this pattern and will definitely make it again.
The pattern is Pint Size by Thimble blossoms.
There are two baby quilt patterns included in the pattern. Love that!!!
I used my 1.5 inch die and my GO! Cutter to cut the strips. It went so fast.

I also made a little table top flimsy using some of my scraps that I cut with the value die that camewith my GO! cutter. Red and Blue are my favorite colors. Once I have this one done, I will put it on my mantle.

This morning, I finished my March blocks for Felicity in the Maple Leaf Bee.

I know I'm really behind.
I've been a bit overwhelmed with everything going on.
I could barely keep track of where I was supposed to be. Luckily, I didn't forget to pick the kids up anywhere. Things are slowing down now a bit. Yeah!!! 

Anyways, I'll try to blog more now that things are a bit more quiet.
I do work night shift tonight and tomorrow.
But, I'll try to get some hand stitching done!!!

Looks like you've had some fun sewing time to get back in the swing. Love those blocks and I'm sure Felicity will too. Hope the kids enjoyed the experience of being in the play!

Hi Ariane! Glad to see you're back at it. You've been so so busy... Looks like you're catching up now. Your jelly-filled quilt top is so nice. I like the mix of the two different blocks in there. Really cute pattern!
