Finally Some Sewing Time

I finally got some play time in my studio today. I started off the morning working on the butterfly blocks for the baby quilt I'm working on for a co-worker.

Then while DH was taking a morning nap (he is still adjusting to our time zone) I cut the fabric for the tablecloth shown above. Then when he woke up I sewed it together. I had enough fabric so I could use the WOF of the fabric as a long center piece and then I was able to match the plaid with two side pieces. I still have to hem it, but I love the way it fits into the colors in my dining room.

This afternoon I did some planning on my mom's Shoo-Fly quilt. I was too tired and achy to do much of anything else. Plus I watched the Patriots beat up on the Dolphins.

Tonight I had a burst of nervous energy waiting for the Red Sox/Indians Game 7 to start so I decided to have a mini cutting party. I cut 100 nickel squares for the Shoo Fly quilt. Then I cut napkins from the leftover table cloth fabric. Next up was binding for one of DIL's quilt. And to finish up the evening I took a package of 10 FQs from the Lakehouse Collection and added 2 FQs and cut them all up to make 2 Wicked Easy baby quilts. DIL and I will sew these quilts up next Sunday before the Patriots game.

Do you hear the contented sigh coming through the computer? That's me feeling happy and content at having spent so much time playing with fabric today. Also the Red Sox are going to the World Series and the Patriots are still undefeated! Life is good in New England tonight.
