Friday Night Lights

Who's ready for some sew in????

I've got Kini occupied with a new toy (read: she's occupied for maybe 20 minutes until she figures out how to completely destroy's a dragon. Those wings are toast. Shame too, it's kinda cute.) I've got  the kitties fed and locked out of the sewing room.  And I've got projects:

The "me quilt" that will go on Etsy as soon as it's done.  Maybe tomorrow, but since I don't have any backing material right now, I'll either need to piece the back or buy some.  We'll see how the night goes.

Quilts for Kids #7 - more cats, this time with mice on their heads.  Should be an easy finish.

Boutonnieres and corsages...I don't really want to make these part of the sew-in, but they need to get done.  As soon as I'm done doing this wedding junk for myself, I'm going to start posting custom listings on Etsy to see if I can make a buck off this whole creative streak I've got going. 

Our quilt - MOTU wants Ohio Stars.  I found a recipe for a zig zag Ohio Star quilt that I think I can get done this week, provided I find some backing.  Wish me luck.

I have big plans for the rest of the weekend too...the whole house really needs a good overhaul organizing, so  hopefully it'll stop raining tomorrow and I can haul some stuff out of/into the shed.  We'll see how that goes too. 

In any case, good luck to all the ladies (and gents) joining me for the sew-in tonight!  Feel free to comment so I can see your work too!

Hey Kat! Hope your Friday night sew-in went well. (Yes, i'm late once again!)
You mentioned 'Kini needing to be occupied...? Have you seen these:

You should try 'em! They're difficult for dogs to tear up, and they keep 'em occupied for looong periods of time.

Just sayin'!
