Finally got some work done.

Happy Friday!

I'm so glad the week is over. I finally got a chance to get some sewing done. I completed two bee blocks yesterday and a block for a mug rug (herringbone - yay!). I also started knitting some golf club socks for my dad for Father's Day - I hope he likes them. I figured it was better than a tie and it will keep me busy. Here is what my day looked like yesterday:

baby quilt layout - still need to sew these together and finish the top.

woven block for simply solids bee - I really like how this one turned out. The colors are wonderful!

Foundation piecing Lone Star Burst block for Beeful of Paper.

A spy.

Finished Lone Star block for Beeful of Paper

Herringbone block - not sure I really am loving this block - but it can be turned into something good.

Sock for driver - it only has one stripe. I can't wait to make the big fluffy pom-poms for the tops of these.   

Golf club socks were a truly inspired idea. He probably won't like them, but maybe he can be persuaded to use them if some nice cigars are included in the box.

Have a great day and get some work done yourself!


  1. Ooh! I love your Herringbone block! If you can't find a use for it, send it to me! Actually I'd just love to know how you made it.

    1. Ida, I actually "winged" it. I had found a great tutorial and then I just thought I could make it happen. I will post a tutorial for this block if you would like. Check back next Wednesday, please. Thanks for your comment! Green

  2. Loving you SS blocks, i'm in the UK Amaranth group :o). The baby quilt is looking fab, really pretty, good luck putting it all together. Hope your dad likes his fathers Day gift.

  3. My fave is the Lone Star block. I was wondering if there was a pattern for one out there in the blogisphere!

  4. Oh, I love all of your blocks but especially the woven block! Very stunning! How big is your lone star block?

  5. That Lone Star is beautiful!! I love it! Lot's of great projects!
