Maniac Monday

What a week. I have been sewing up a storm. And relaxing. I have big things in the works but I will have to keep it a secret for a bit longer. I can't wait to share!!

I have been getting caught up on my Saturday Sampler blocks. Here are two of them. I love the fun brights with the black.

 With Halloween coming so quickly I wanted to get two of my UFO's done and out of the way. I have had these two wall hangings for so long. I got them out and finished them. They are so cute. The top one I still need to add a few buttons to. The bottom one has 3D shutters that flap open and closed. I am going to give it to my nieces and nephew. I know they will like it. 

As I was doing all of this fun sewing I got a little careless. I cut my thumbnail with my rotary cutter. Luckily it only got my nail. No blood. You can see inside that black circle where the blade went. I am so glad it stopped. I would have cut the top of my finger off!!

I finished another UFO. Well Three. I have had this pattern from the very beginning back in 2010. It is Twice as Nice... Plus More from Eleanor Burns. When I started these little quilts I knew that my first Granddaughter would get them. I am glad to have them finished before she turned 21. HA HA!!
 Speaking of my Granddaughter. Here she is in her little Boise Bronco's cheer leading outfit. She is so cute!!

I hope that everybody has a great week!!



  1. So many lovely things - really love those bright and black blocks.

  2. Best looking cheerleader I've ever seen! Love your star bright blocks....they just pop!

  3. Nice UFO clean-up going on over there :D The witch is adorable. Those rotary cutters are vicious! Good thing you had polish on. ;D
