5 On Friday

If you don't know how this works, just read through this list - 5 things I'm loving/thinking about this week - and then I link up here.  If you want to participate, it'd be fun - if you do, comment and I'll read yours.  It's fun to meet new people, see what is hot and trending, etc.

1. Couch to 5k.  You can read more about that here.
2. Red and black - I love the color combo! Really - my nails are even this color.  I might even be starting to like red and black more than pink and grey.  It's a close call, really.

3. Music - such a mood changer.
4. Austin Mahone, What about love?  It's a song I rock out to with my stepdaughter.  Mostly we dance around the room looking like fools and giggling.  Good bonding times.

5. Wonky house blocks - more on that in a different post.  But much fun to make them! And pulling fabric for them - so much goodness!!!

Tshirt Quilts

I am working on two tshirt quilts for a lovely cousin of mine.  I don't want to show pictures or go into details, they are surprises, but let me tell you  - I don't think they are for me! >.>

I fused interfacing on all the blocks, cut them out, and have one all sashed and bordered.  The other is ready for sashing.  I felt that it was hard to keep an accurate 1/4 inch, because of the interfacing.  Maybe I need a new needle?  So I did a lot of unpicking and restitching, which is always fun (not).

I think, though, I will enjoy finishing them - I plan on tying them, and they will be the first quilts I tie all by myself!  Well, I might enlist the help of my husband and MIL.  LOL.

I will show pictures of them once they are gifted :)

Here are the projects I finished for Danny @ Mommy for Reals - it was nice making something that I know was for a good cause.  I should do more charity between sewing all these projects on my list!!

3rd Quarter Finish A Long

she can quilt

Okay, I'm going for it - I'm participating in the 3rd quarter Finish a long...and hoping that will help motivate me to get some of these UFO's finished!!!

Here is my list:

My lovely bee quilt top - still need to decide on borders, and backing, and then how to quilt it! Ack!

 Supernova quilt - I love these blocks...need to finish the last couple and finish this quilt up.

 Still unfinished quilt for my niece...I have a backing pieced...shame shame.

This mini is lovely, and part of a round robin I was in...I want to finish this beauty up and hang her by my sewing machine!

So there - a (hopefully) manageable list.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!

It's a sister thing

Quilts From My Crayon Box
I'm participating in the Sister Thing Swap over at Quilts from my crayon box ( she is hosting) .  Got my partner information today, and I am super excited to let the "stalking" begin.

On another note, I volunteered to make pillowcases and zipper pouches for a charity through Mommy for Reals...I'll post pictures of the pieces I made later.  Gotta get my camera to agree with me.  But I think they are cute and hope they will be well loved!
