Sewing Saturday

I didn’t get much done to show for sewing Saturday. Last night Mr. Pickles interfered with my sewing first we were going to watch a movie, but then he didn’t want to watch one right at 8, and then he wanted to play a game, but found something truck related online that he had to read and all of a sudden it was 11 and I hadn’t barely gotten anything done!

I did however get my block done for the International Stashes Bee. Katy is working on a Quilters Palette quilt and asked us to all make one block in which ever colour we wanted. Since I had a few pink FQ and had bought some extra pink for Danielle’s block in the We Bee Learning bee I figured pink was going to be my lucky colour. This is what I came up with


I like it even though I only had 5 pink fabrics to work with. That is the bad part about being a newbie quilter and taking part in a bee where you use your own stash. I don’t have much of a stash to use! I like the fact that if I don’t have a certain colour I can just go out and buy it, but buying say 7 different fabrics to make one square is a bit out of my budget...or at least I am trying to tell myself that..lol

****update this spot has been filled***
In other news I am looking for a replacement member for group 2 of the We Bee Learning Bee.  Your month to host would be October and we would need you to play catch up and do the January and February blocks. If you are interested check out our flickr group http://www.flickr.com/groups/webeelearning/ and fm or e-mail me if you are interested.
I hope everyone is having a great week-end

  2. My hubs did the same thing to me last night, we were supposed to play a game together at 8:40 and he said he needed 20 minutes and the next thing I knew it was 10:00 and I was ready for bed!
