Sewing at the Lake...

We had a relaxing weekend at the lake. Though I keep a sewing machine and supplies there, I only did hand stitching while there. I have finally finished a half block for my Stars Upon Stars quilt. It only took me a month - haha! It all fit together nicely and I think I'm finally getting the hang of this tiny work. Those diamonds finish at 1/2" x 1/2". SO TINY!

I need 15 whole blocks, 11 half blocks, and 4 quarter blocks. A long way to go, but I'm ready to attempt a whole block next. Fingers crossed.

These little bow tie blocks seem huge in comparison, though each bow tie will finish at only 3"! Though I didn't make any of these Saturday or Sunday at the lake, I'm back at them now. The pattern calls for them to be sewn in groups of 4. So now when I make my daily four blocks, I go ahead and stitch them together.

I'm half way done with a big unit. Making progress!

Today I plan to work some on my computer. A kind reader sent me some helpful tips for the new blogger format. I'm still having issues though. I'm beginning to think my computer may be the issue. So today I will clean up my files, delete a lot of stuff I don't need, backup my hard drive, and then (while holding my breath and crossing all fingers and toes!) update the software. I hope my computer survives all this and I don't lose something important. 

Are you watching Home Organization by The Home Edit on Netflix???? This is my new obsession. Though we have been settled into our new home for quite some time, our master closet hasn't been organized yet. I have so many ideas now! I ordered lots of cool hooks from Amazon this morning - can't wait to make this closet better and more beautiful!

Stay safe!


  1. Your Star Upon Stars is an amazing work! So tiny! I'm reducing one I'm working on right now. The squares are to finish at 12 inches; mine because of wall space finish at 6" which makes for some the size of a unit is 1 1/16th square.
    Stay safe, too.
