So many projects…

So little time!

I’ve got so many things in progress, it’s hard to focus!  The beginnings of a Birdie bag that I just can’t bring myself to cut out all of the darn pieces (stupid interfacing!), two quilts tops needing basting, quilting, and binding, a wedding quilt for a friend, and Siggy blocks from the Modern Siggy Swap 2.

Two weekends ago I got together with friends and spent the afternoon cutting up my pure charm pack and piecing my blocks for Project Pure.   Hoping to piece the top this week!

This past weekend I was on vacation at the beach and as much as I wanted to pack my sewing machine, there just wasn’t room in the car with 2 dogs, a dog crate, an assortment of linens and clothing.  A quick trip to JoAnn’s and I had a few templates for hand sewing hexagons instead.  I brought a fat quarter bundle of Bliss and got to work.  Unfortunately I ran out of templates faster than I would’ve liked and those plastic templates are expensive.  Time to switch to paper piecing I think!
