Happy Spring Sewing Party!

8:45pm  - Update
Back to sewing after dinner, a grocery run, and a little snack :o)

Where this turned into.....

A delicious Grasshopper and a cupcake that hubby and I made yesterday! :o)

As for the baby quilts that I've been working on, some of you have expressed how impressed you are that I have finished so many tops...really, they are very easy, let me tell you!  I now have 7 finished.  It is a pattern used with three fabrics, and just by the way you cut the fabric, you end up getting 3 baby quilts from it all!  Now I'm ready to get on to the quilting!

3 tops done, one pinned and ready to be quilted!

2 more tops done (the third has already been finished and is put away somewhere....must find)

2 more tops done, the front quilt is finished and waiting to go to it's new owner!

So there we are, baby quilt tops completed so far and ready to be quilted then bound :o)  I just realized though that I don't have many for baby girls...oh well, so will work for both!

4:00pm - Update
Well shoot, there won't be any snowboarding today *tear* It's in the upper 30's today and the snow is starting to get slushy, wet and melt :o(

So I'm back from shopping {got a cute top and a couple cardigans - man things are expensive!}, and I figure since I won't be playing out in the snow, sewing is the next best thing! I'll be back up in the sewing room soon finishing off those adorable little baby quilts!

11:45 am - Update
Computers, I tell ya....well, Kelly was absolutely a doll to add my blog link to her list, so I'm part of the Party once again!

I have 5 flannel baby quilt tops done, but now have to get all cleaned up to head out for some errands with Mom. Stopping by Grandma's new place, hit up CVS to replenish the pop supply, and off to do some shopping with Christmas gift cards!! Yippy! I can't tell you the last time I actually went shopping {for something other than necessities or fabric}!!!

I will be back later {after the shopping trip and some snowboarding} to do some more sewing! I'm hoping to get those baby quilts {mostly} finished today!

10:00am - Update
Just wanted to drop in quick and update --

First project of the day is {almost} done!!  Just have the hand sewing left for the binding, then it is fished!

And now I'm back up to the sewing studio to get a bit more work done before errands with Mom, then snowboarding with Hubby!  Next quilts!

I'll be checking back later to see everyone else's progress too!

** Edit:  Well, checked Kelly's blog today, and no linky back to here, apparently I didn't make the cut I guess.  Oh well, I will just have my own Sewing Party!  Sewing Party - Party of One, come on down!! **

Hope you all are having a great time sewing!!
