Weekend Sewing...

So, here it is Thursday already and I'm just now getting around to show you what I accomplished over the weekend. I had a mini retreat with a couple of other quilters. We sewed from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon! It was heaven.

The first project is this cute pumpkin runner/wallhanging. I bought this kit a year ago at the Indiana retreat and have been itching to make it. But I just never seemed to make the time! I got just a little of the button hole stitching started, though, so I still have some work to go.

Remember this old project?? A couple years ago this Quilter's Blessing BOM was all the rage on the blogs. I'm still plugging along on mine! I've had the blocks done for at least a year or so...and now I just need to add a couple more borders and it'll be done!

And another embroidery project...I assembled the first six blocks of my busy little elves! Here is a picture of the first two.

Here is all six blocks...they aren't sewn together yet though. I just love 'em!! I'm stitching block 7 out of I'm getting there!!

Whew....I accomplished a lot on my mini retreat, huh?? :)

Happy Quilting!
