Can we rewind?

Where did the weekend go? It seems like I was always doing something but got very little completely done. Can we rewind and start it all over?

I did manage to get the mini done for Mini Quilt in a Bag Swap. It's packaged with a little extra treat and is ready to go to the post office. For this round, our swap partner send out fabric to be used as the center square in a log cabin block. Diane sent me a butterfly fabric that gave me the chance to use some bright, fun fabrics.And look at what my partner sent back to me? Isn't it great? Makes me want to go play in the garden (well, maybe I better weed it first). Over the past few days I did get 3 blocks made and in the mail for a block swap I am in. We're all making the same block just in different colors (whatever that month's recipient requests). These blocks go together pretty quickly and are made w/ fabrics from my stash. I'm ahead of the game here b/c these blocks are for June. I'll have to pick up some more white fabric. Other than that, the blocks will be made from fabric I have on hand.And last, but certainly not least, I got the goods put together and ready to send out to Diane in May's Chocolate & Fabric swap. Diane said she likes holiday fabric. So, I sent along a bundle of Christmas fabric from my way-too-much-need-to-purge Christmas fabric stash. The card (back right) was sewn on my embroidery machine. Pretty neat, eh?!

P.S. The Red Wings beat Chicago yesterday!!! Go, go, go Wings!!!


  1. It looks to me like you were pretty productive! I love the little butterflies in the centers of the log cabin blocks - and those little pinwheel block are just so cute. Someday I'll attempt a pinwheel quilt - all of those triangles and matching up all of those seams is a little scary!

  2. How amazingly different do those three pinwheels look??
    You certainly made some lovely things this weekend!

  3. sara,
    I'm not agree with you about your weekend. Look at you...very productive lady! You did so much :)
    Lovely blocks!
