Maniac Monday #3 2012

Well lets just say things have been C.R.A.Z.Y. around here and leave it at that. Jayden is such a blessing to have. I love that little guy. I babysat his two older sisters and it is so neat to be able to say I helped to take care of all of them.

Even though I have been busy with the little guy I have been sewing. I finished the last of the blocks for the Geese in a Ring Swap. I mailed them off and they are being sorted now to ship to their owners. I can't wait to see mine. I have a cool idea of how to set them.  

I finished my Let's Bee Together block of January . Such an interesting and fun block. The quilt will be so filled with color.
 I also finished my February block. I will be mailing it out soon. I love black, white and red!!

I received my block from Sandra for January for Block Swap Adventures. Can I say, she NAILED it. I love this block!! Thank you.

My daughter made a new shower curtain for the mail bathroom. This girl can sew! I make this matching all hanging out of some of the extra fabric. I love it. Next we are going to make some decorations out of toilet paper rolls.

Of my list from a while back that I did not get finished here is how it worked out.

3. Pick out fabric for Count Your Blessings Quilt Along. (PQA)

I did that. It took a while. The quilt is done in darker country looking fabrics and I don't have many. So my quilt will be a bit brighter. I think it will look great.

4. Make 3 #1 blocks for the above quilt. (PQA)
I finished the blocks. They are so cute. I have four blocks to make this month. I will add pictures later.

5. Start cutting fabric for Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt Double Delight. (PQA)
I have finished cutting out step #1. I will need more time to start sewing them.
That is how far I have gotten. Oh one more thing. I have been holding off making PJ bottoms for my girls for two Christmas'. I know whats the hold up. Well I got my serger out last week and now I am committed to finishing all of them. I am even making my some "around the house" pants. I only wear jeans when I leave and since I am home most of the time I am in sweets. YUCKY! I need to feel pretty. So I bought three yards of five very nice fabrics (last summer, I know!) so I am making them also. So between the three of us I am making 13 pairs of pants. They are all cut out, inner seams sewn, front to back crotch seam, done. Now I am working on the serged seam at the waist and ankles. Then it is just side seam, adding the elastic and hemming the ankles. I am more than half way done. LOL! I will add pictures of them also.
For my list this next week:
1. Finishes ALL PJ's and lazy pants.
2. Count On It~Art to Heart,
a) take a picture of January
b) finish February
3. Start sewing on the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt Double Delight. (PQA)
Goal: to finish one half
4. Make the next four blocks in the Count Your Blessings Quilt Along. (PQA)
5. Take a picture of my PQA Block Swap for February.

I am going to stop there. I have started a second list in my binder. We will see how far I get.
