Friday Nite Sew In Show and Tell

First of all, thank you so much Heidi for organizing the Friday Nite Sew In!!!! It was lots of fun to know I was sewing away last night with about 145 other quilters. I just know I heard those machines whirring!!!

It took me a while to finally get to the sewing room last night. But I did, and that's the main thing, right?? I worked on the Everlasting Wreath blocks. I got quite a few done last night, and then this morning I did another batch of blocks. So all totaled, I'm at 53 blocks.

Between last night and this morning, I got 23 blocks sewn!! Woot woot!!!

How did I know it was time to stop last night??? When I saw this mess up! LOL See where I mixed up the greens? The lazy part of my character really wanted to leave it, but I was a good girl and ripped it out. Just two little bitty seams, so no problem.




I'm loving seeing the pattern of the light circles appearing......



I will probably spend some more time in the sewing room today, but for now, my back and eyes are tired. I suppose I'll spend some time looking at the blogs that participated last night in the Friday Nite Sew In! That will give my back time to rest!!!



Happy Quilting!!!!!!!
