    I finished a baby quilt top and part of the mystery train. I also just got an accuquilt so I cut lots of 5" squares. I know people like having large stashes but having a lot makes me nervous so I plan to use up all my fabric scraps by February!

    Yes, I worked on my MIL's warm wishes quilt, made 2 blocks for a string quilt, trying to use up scraps and also spent some time on a Bow Tucks purse I'm making for a friend.

    I didn't spend as much time quilting as I had planned; but I did finish a machine appliqué block I had started earlier, made the 2013 Craftsy BOM for Jan, and did the sashing on blocks for a quilt top that I hope to finish tomorrow.

    No sewing, taking meds for the flu, cold, crud, whatever...it is so-o-o miserable. I hate being sick. Glad to see others being productive.

    No sewing for me! I've been getting ready to head back to school on Monday.

    I was able to do lots of stuff this weekend. After reading "Embrace Yourself" here on the board I went on a straightening up binge and made some decent progress. I quilted my third QFK on my Christmas present frame. Got my husband's quilt top 2/3s done. Just 5 more rows to put together and then some borders. Lastly I worked on a backpack for me. It is almost finished which is good as I am traveling next weekend.

    I finished up my first quilt for this year and started putting together pieces I had cut up last Dec. I ended up with enough pieces for three quilts, different sizes, two different patterns. Same colors. I sew about every evening and on weelends while I do laundry and cleaning.

    I cut lots of blades for a Dresden plate quilt, put 4 plates together, then I read NYPD Red by Patterson as I got it from the library and it is only 5 day checkout. Oh, almost forgot, did the laundry and vacuumed the house. Will sew tomorrow, kid finally goes back to school and I will have free time.

    Well, I need to cut and attach the borders for 2 tops as the long-arm lady will be ready for them in a few days. Because I absolutely hate to cut things out, I did nothing at all. I spent this afternoon curled up with my flannel raggy quilt and a novel. I also took a long nap. I head back to the classroom tomorrow....hope I don't oversleep!
