Is the weekend over?

The best laid plans and all. My plans, to sew. A lot. My last free weekend for a while. My last weekend with my machine for a while and what happens? No sewing Friday. Fought with the hubs instead. (We are dealing with some major life changing issues and feel we should take out our stress on one another ever so often.)

No sewing Sat. started with a good morning with hubs then we apparently decided to fight again. Took the kid to soccor mid-day, came home, hubs and I went to get our new iPhones (yeah -and yes, fight was over by then). Then picked other kids up from airport. My day was done.

Sunday, got up, did a little garage sale hopping with hubs for niece and nephew clothes, had lunch out with the hubs and let kids fend for themselves for meals.   After lunch, watched basketball games and sewed.

I finished weeks 5 & 6 for the pinwheel quilt along.  It's getting harder to do with my original plan of only using these five fabrics. However, I'm determined and I do like the look. I'm purposely not putting them all together with each of the other weeks so I can be surprised good or bad, in the overall look.

I made a reversible apron.

I put the green border on my "Come on Spring" quilt (that's what I might call it).  I think it was a good decision.
I created a tutorial for remaking a koozie. I'll post that seperately this week.

Hope your weekend was much more productive than mine.  I think next time I won't plan to sew and I might actually get to it faster! hehe

Cheers! Beck

Love the green border on that quilt. Totally the right choice to offset the yellows and blues.

Whatever a Koozie is - it sounds rude. I can't wait for the tute.

And that apron is cute - cute -cute. So I think you actually achieved stacks this weekend. More than me and I didn't have iphone pickups, airport pickups (hope the kids enjoyed themselves)and relationship hiccups. :)

I love the aprons and that they are reversible. Looks like you got a lot done in between the fighting - hope that subsides soon! Best, Lisa

That green border really sets off the Bento Box quilt. Sorry you didn't get to sew more. I know how that feels. Lane

Don't worry about the fighting, sometimes I pick a fight just to relieve stress about something else. I think you got a lot of work done this weekend. I like the aprons and the quilt. Look forward to the tut.
