Saturday in Pink

I didn't have any pink to show last week but I have oodles this week!
I had to sew on Wednesday so I set up a temporary sewing area until I can get into my new sewing space next week.

I made my two Sampler blocks. Don't look too closely on the points on Marley - it got picked out once and then I figured it would not show too much in the finished quilt!

I also got my pink Dresden plate done this week. I hope to find the template I made when I put my room back together. I did find the paper I had cut it out of and used that to draw my line on top of a few of them to cut them all out.

My hand work project has been making some progress. I got the rest cut out on Wednesday and the lines drawn at bowling on Thursday. A few people come up each week to see what I am doing and to ohhh and awe over this block I am making. It also got worked on in the car line and at soccer practice last night in the low 40 temps. I was the Mom in the car to keep warm while my kiddo's were bundled in sweaters, winter coats, hats and mittens. The coach asked if I had another hat in the car for him! Hard to believe in a month or two I'll be wishing for cool temps as it will be in the mid 90's and 90+ percent humidity.

Time to cut cat nails and then grab a shower. This is Sophie with her 'you think you are going to cut my nails' look.

Hopefully it warms up from the 21 degrees with a hard frost here in Florida so I can grab a walk before I go and drop off some girl scout cookies to the kids PreK teacher and see her baby boy who was born a couple of weeks ago. He was not due until March but Mom was having some high blood pressure issues so they delivered him. He and Mom and doing great.

Busy afternoon as Emily is selling cookies from 4-6 today with her troop leader so I'll take Aidan back in front of Publix and see if we can sell the last 9 Boy Scout camp cards. Tomorrow is a working  day for me but head on over Saturday morning and see what other great projects are being worked on for the RSC Challenge in pink.

  4. Those sampler blocks look really good. I'm not usually a fan but setting them inside the stars works. Love your Dresden.

  5. Loving your sampler blocks so far. The Marly looks great to me -- points or not. Sounds like a busy month for you. So glad to be past my girl scout cookie selling days. So much more fun to just buy a couple of boxes and enjoy!

  7. Beautiful projects! I can't decided if the Dresden Plate is my favorite or the Trip Around the world block. Hope you can find a bit of time to sew this next week. It's hard when the kids have lots of stuff going on.

  10. Your little sampler blocks are awesome ... no one but you will ever notice the points once they're all together. Sounds like you have a busy day ahead of you. Wow, 21 degrees ... that's awfully cold for your area! And yet, as you say, it'll be HOT in no time at all. Crazy winter weather!
