This and That Tuesday

I didn’t get much sewing done yesterday. But I did get my laundry done, so there is that. My biggest accomplishment was getting the borders on the log cabin quilt.  

This seemed to be the favorite combo. The red is a touch brighter than I wanted but it was the best I had and I didnt want to buy anything. Now I have to decide how to quilt it. That may take a while. 

I also started piecing some hour glass blocks that I cut out a while back. Remember these? 

 They are turning into these. 

I have the hand sewing on the binding of the secret quilt almost done but I will hold off showing that until it is gifted a few weeks from now.

In other news, Mr. E had a big birthday party on Sunday. I can’t believe he is a year old already! 


And in about two weeks, Mr. L will be officially a big brother!


I’m looking forward to a trip to Arizona in July to meet our third grandson. We are anxiously awaiting news of his birth! We are so blessed with these little guys!

Have a great Tuesday!

    Another grandson coming — how exciting! Good choices on the border fabrics … that red might be a little brighter than you’d like, but because it’s a narrow border, I think it’ll be ok.
