Ready for the weekend

I don't get much sewing done during the week since I have a full time job and just don't have time/energy at the end of the day to do much. So, you may have noticed that my posts tend to be very project-centric at the beginning of the week and then more inspirational towards the end. I'm fine with that...it seems like a good pattern.

So, I think I will now officially dedicate Fridays to what has been inspiring me over the week (more like 'this instant and subject to change any moment') and what I have planned to do over the weekend (Haha, we'll see on Monday's how close I get.).

First, some Flickr love:


1. Quilts, 2. Embroidery Detail of Frenchy Bag, 3. Untitled, 4. Molly's Sketchbook: New Liberty of London + Amy Butler's "Anna Tunic", 5. The Big Day Finished!, 6. Sea Glass Necklace, 7. Checkers Quilt Detail, 8. Antique log cabin quilt, 9. Green Elephants and a Ladybug

And for this weekend? I have three things in mind:
1. Start cutting the husband's quilt and sew one block together to be sure it'll work out.
2. Sew Mama, Sew block-along continues! I think I'll do the Shoo Fly AND the Ohio Star in the same fabrics as my Disappearing Nine Patch.
3. Finish up that cross stitch alphabet project. No excuse for how long that's taking me.

I just found your blog thanks to Jackie. It's always fun to find a fellow Red Sox lover. Your blog looks great and I've added you to my Bloglines. I can't wait to see what you did this weekend.

Thanks everyone. I did end up doing the blocks for the Sew, Mama, Sew! block along and the first block for my husbands quilt (I'll post on this tomorrow, Tuesday). And got a few more letters done on the cross stitch I'm working on.

Leah: Yes, my husband is also a Red Sox fan. I can't imagine having a Sox and Yankees fan in the same house. Mets fan, maybe.

I have the same sort of blogging rotation. The only time really for crafting is on the weekends for me too with work and all. I love seeing your quilt blocks.
