Friday Night Sew in Results

Well, I wasn't able to do as much as I wanted, but I did get quite a bit accomplished this evening.  I finished sewing my first block for the tree skirt and I love it and so does my husband!  We are both so excited to have a tree skirt this year!  Since we've been sharing a home we have wrapped the base of our tree with an old blanket from Ikea.  Well, not this year!

Sorry for the horrible pictures!  It's late and my sewing space is in the basement, so this is the best I could do.  I was also able to cut out one more block which really speeds up the process. 

While sewing this evening I decided that this is not the best project to work on while sewing with the guild.  I, like most people I'm sure, usually end up talking more than sewing when I go to these meetings.  While this isn't a hard block to sew if I'm not paying attention, I'll sew it together incorrectly.  I learned this the hard way tonight when I had to take out the seam ripper twice because I was paying too much attention to HBO and not enough to my sewing!  All of that to say, tomorrow I'm working on my Fruitcake quilt.  At the rate I'm going I just might have a Christmas quilt this year!

So not a bad night of sewing considering I stopped in the middle to brush teeth, read bedtime stories, and make Cranberry Orange Bread.  Now I'm off to bed because it is way past my bedtime and I have an early, busy day tomorrow!

Hope everyone else had a successful night!
