My Day Off

I have a part-time job and have Tuesdays and Thursdays off.  This week I am filling in for another lady in the office so I only had today off.  I wanted to sew the entire day, that was the plan.  But the green beans that we picked yesterday evening needed to be canned, there were a couple of errands I needed to run and the bills needed to be paid.  Then like magic it was 3:00 P.M.  I decided I would make my way down to my sewing area and see what I could get done.  Over the weekend I started sewing together this back for a Chenille Baby Blanket gift I am working on.  Tutorial is by Mama Spark you can find it here.

 I finished piecing it today.  This is the second time I have used this tutorial and cannot say enough how easy the directions are to follow.  Now I need to get to town to pick up the flannel to finish it off.

Are any of you stitching along with Red Brolly's Girls Own Stitching Club.  I have finally caught up and am ready for the next block which I expect will be posted soon.  

Here are the four blocks.  Just a little hint.  I think it is best to always print out your patterns from the same printer.  My stitching's did not end up the same size and I did not notice it until I had them all finished.  But I decided as long as the finished blocks were the correct sizes I could live with it.  It has been a rainy day so I could not find a good place to take pictures today. 

You will find a button on my side bar that matches the one below.  If you click on it, it will take you to the first block if you would like to join in the fun.

Wishing you a wonderful week!  Blessings from our home in the woods.

You're a better woman than me, lol, I've been spending my days off doing mostly nothing. Recuperating from work mostly. I love your baby quilt and those stitchery blocks are too darling!!! I've done that with my printer, not had them all to the same settings, and it can really mess things up, lol. Your blocks look fine, though, well done!! Stay cool!

I just love your stitch blocks. Wish I was ambitious as you. I just finished stitching up Sunbonnet Sue blocks that need to sewn into a quilt for my grandbaby. Love your quilt
