Design Wall Monday

Here it is Monday again. I comes around so fast! I have been busy, busy, busy!

It is now hunting season and I am a weekend hunting widow. Don't feel sorry for me! I love it. Sew all day in my pjs if I want and this weekend I wanted. Even though it was really nice outside, I spent most of my time inside. I went for a few walks but mostly I sewed and sewed and sewed. Eventually I did get showered and dressed. Just not too early in the day.

Saturday I added 12 more Pineapple Crazy blocks to my collection. I am now at 150 and really thought it was more.  I spent last night de-papering those 12 (I de-paper as I go.). Now I want to sew 12 more!

Sunday I worked on a secret project. I love a good secret project. snicker, snicker I'll spend some time today adding the finishing touches and doing the pressing. Then I might work on another bunch of pineapple blocks.

I spent Wednesday and Thursday at Crystal's house while she was whisked away for a little birthday getaway. I took along my Millefiore project to work on. The kids love to work the hexies like a puzzle. I got most of my pieces glue basted and even a few sewn together.

This week I plan to get Tumalo Trails pin basted and I have some Christmas blocks to make. Wish me luck!

See what others are working on at Patchwork Times.
