Friday Finishes...

My head is still throbbing. The stupid vent thingie on top of the microwave fell off (it's been broken for an unknown amount of time...I wasn't aware it was always this way bc it never fell off before this year) and hit me in the face. I can empathize with him:
Stinky, post op.
Although he's on doggie tranquilizers. Is that like horse tranquilizers?
Poor boober's mouth hurts...it's now short a few teeth.

I stayed at home with him and sewed today.
I did this last night:
test block for Sew Bee Blissful (Aug)
I was doing a test block for the Sew Bee Blissful block this month. I fluffed it a bit in terms of sewing two fabrics together that I didn't intend to. Now i know what to avoid when I sew Jenna's block.

I FINALLY finished mom's quilt top:
Mom's quilt top-finished!
I love it, but it's WAY bigger than anything I've tried to straight line quilt. I wish I could free motion on my machine. *sigh*

I finished a girl's twin quilt....very 80s...that I hope will be headed to Joplin soon.
very 80's quilt

Edit: July Modern Block of the Month, now complete:

Still not worked on:
My July Modern Block of the month (i may do it tonight)
the Sew Bee Blissful block for Jenna (her fabrics came today but the envelope was opened...I'm waiting to see if I'm missing any important bits)

  4. I like the quilt you've made for your mum. I've never made a quilt with a white background but I think I will as they're so fresh looking.
