Monday recap

Hmmm. Where did that weekend go? Oh yeah.... a bunch of time spent in the car on Saturday heading over to visit relatives on the coast. A great visit and I was able to do a little bit of applique in the car... but decided being in the back, back seat (I had MIL sit in the front and DH was driving) and working on those little tiny 'leaves' from #9 cactus bloom did not mix. Bummer. I have 2 on.... 6 to go. At least it is progress.

I spent some time on Sunday sewing while the little ones napped.... in between making an apple crisp, getting the chuck roast and carrots prepped and into the oven to slowly bake and doing about 4 loads of laundry done, folded and put away.

Mindy's quilt..... This is a star struck pattern by Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville.

I am going to have lots of little HST's in black and orange,red,pink and yellow after I get this done.... Hmmm Maybe they will end up in the border somehow?

I also wanted to see some know how that is. I did 2 more Jacobs Ladder Blocks and now have 22 of them done. Only 8 more to go and that will give me a 5x6 setting. I have not decided exactly how to lay it out yet...

Today..... I have a little quilt planned for nap time sewing. Lets hope the little ones go down good for their nap so Mommy can sew!
Happy sewing.

LOVE the star struck with black! So striking. Looks like you are making great progress on lots right now. If only nap time were a little longer.....

I agree, the star struck is really quite striking in your colour scheme. Using those bonus triangles in the border is a great way to use up scraps before they can officially be scraps and start to multiply..when are backs are turned..or when we turn out the lights..or..
