It is a long weekend here in the states as we celebrate Memorial Day and give thanks and pay respect to the men and women who have served, currently serve, and will serve in our armed forces. It also means that we don't have to work on Monday and I have today (Friday off as well) so I have BIG PLANS for my four day weekend. Four wonderful days to clean house, cut grass, and bake. Hah just kidding the grass is already cut and the kitchen is actually clean why mess it up with cooking anything, nope I plan to spend my four days in front of my sewing machine. The old girl and I have some catching up to do and like I said I have BIG PLANS. Here's a break down of the sewing to do list:

June String Block
Paper Piecing Block (sorry Kristian, I'm still a little scared to be honest)
4 apartment houses for May Bee-Stitched
Tulip Block for May

Pinwheel Sampler
Log Cabin (My month is the Fussy Cut Bee)
Red & Aqua swap (okay this was the second swap I ever did and the blocks have been at my house for well, almost a year now and I haven't put them together into anything. Time to make a plan and execute.)

I know this list is a bit unrealistic but if I don't aim high I won't get anything done I'm afraid. I have some other blog post planned for the weekend too, lots of ideas running around in this head of mine. How about you do you have big plans for the weekend (be it is extended or otherwise). If you need a little inspiration check out these upcoming projects:

Isn't this beautiful. I am so glad Amanda Jean is back in the blogging world.
And now she is bringing us this great quilt along as well.

And just so you know how serious I am about getting some sewing done over the next four days, I managed to finish one of the previously mentioned blocks last night. Dena asked for string blocks for June for the Circuit Quilt Bee. She sent each of us different color pieces in one color. I got green. At first I thought green I don't have any green to add. Last night I started looking and it turns out I did have some green in my stash. Not much but enough to make one cool looking block I think. Enough to make the ever growing list of ideas in my head think okay someday we need to try this. Dena I hope you like the block and the fabrics I added. My favorite part is the middle where all the tiny pieces come together.


  1. I like this block - maybe an idea for when it is my month (October) for Modern Tradition Quilt Bee. If I don't see anything before them I will be asking if it is ok for me to use this block. Hope that's ok with you.

    I don't think I will be doing much sewing this weekend as my grandson is coming to stay over on Saturday and Sunday - can't wait but there will be no time for anything else except spoiling him. I just love it. Have a great sewing weekend.:)

  2. Love it! Thank you so much. Fun to get a block so early. Happy Weekend
