....took the weekend off

This week was intense!!! An essay, a class presentation, and two exams. When I caught my breath, and took a look at this week's assigned reading - - all 318 pages of boring text book stuff - - I decided to go on strike.

I spent the better part of today sewing. I put a border on this:

I'm going to add another wider, pieced border to it.

And I finished all the courthouse steps blocks for this:

The pattern called for 45 courthouse blocks, and now I have to sew the star blocks. 44 to go!

And then I sewed the binding down on this:

It still needs the binding to be handstitched to the back, but it's a step closer to being done.

Okay - I guess I could get a bit of reading done now.


  1. All lovely!! Now get back to the books! (Mom speaking here!! :o))

  2. They all are looking wonderful but I absolutely love the last one......gorgeous!

  3. Wow! You go girl!... you got a lot done!!!
    Some sewing therapy makes the world go around a bit easier don't ya think?
    Love that pick and choose!

    Happy Sewing
