Wednesday, Again

Yep, it's time for a quick bloggy update. This would have been a post-less week were it not for Lee at Freshly Pieced. It's going by fast, that's for sure, and I've actually gotten a lot done.

Here is my progress on my Sparkle Punch quilt. These 8 colors are done, I've got 6 to go. It seems I miscalculated a bit and cut out way too many squares from my star colors fabric. I have enough squares to make 11 whole stars and I only need to make 6 from each color/pattern. Oops, guess I'll have a bunch of 4 1/2" squares left over! I'm sure I can find something to make with them. I might use them for the back.

My mistake has actually given me a much needed push to get going on this quilt, I was feeling overwhelmed before, not anymore! It may have to be put down for a while though, since I have two baby showers in March that I am making quilts for. Gotta get on that!

Of course since I have nothing else to do in my life (not!), I picked up a new hobby, embroidery. It's quite fun actually! I mentioned before that my mom was gonna teach me and she did. We didn't quite get to watching Downton Abby together, but that will come too. I just know she is going to love that show as much as I do. She's a bit of an anglophile like me and what's more British then embroidering whilst watching Downton Abby??

Well that's all for now, can't wait to see what everyone else is working on. I'm linking up with Lee.
