Lots of Sewing! Yay!

Yesterday! I sewed for hours! Yay me! I stitched together the 3rd En Provence block.

And then I stitched together the 4th block! Only 2 more blocks to go!

And then I decided to move on to dresdens. I made one...

And then I made another!

My pictures are a bit dark today - it's very cloudy and foggy this morning. Storms are coming in tonight.

I had plans to work on the next Farmer's Daughter block last night, but I was tired and simply vegetated in front of the television. But it was a good day of sewing!

Did you notice I made two of each block? I love sets of two. When I come home from a trip to the grocery store, I find I have bought MANY items in twos. Two boxes of popcorn. Two cartons of eggs. Two frozen pizzas. Two packages of frozen broccoli. I think I have a bit of OCD. Why buy one? I might need another! Ha! I always have a spare!

Today I'll be working on my UFO - and that means nine patches! But first, I'm dragging myself to the pool. I've been a slug this week - need to swim TODAY!

Let's go jump in a pool!!! Have a fun day!


  1. I love how organized and scheduled you are. My friends are always getting after my for my schedules and wish I wasn't so scheduled, so that they could include me in their impromptu plans. Your En Provence blocks are beautiful and your Dresden Plates are amazing. I've been working in hexies lately and am training myself to do them as I was TV shows series on DVD. It's been difficult, since I like to see the looks on faces and all the camera detail, but I'm learning to just get the gist, so that I can get more sewing done! I'll post some pictures on FB later today. Have a great day, and way to go on your swimming and weight loss!

  3. Wow, you got so much wonderful sewing done. I love how you buy things in two's. My daughter laughs at me every time we go grocery shopping. I suffer from the same thing apparently. I'm glad I am not the only one. Lol.

  4. Your in house retreat sounded wonderful and productive. Love those Dresden blocks!
