I got a lot of sewing done this weekend visiting my MIL's cabin in Southern Colorado. This is the first time I've ever taken my sewing machine on a trip with me, and it will not be the last. It was a perfect place and time to sew.
I spent a good deal of my free time leading up to the trip getting my fabric ready to go so I wouldn't have to do much cutting or measuring. That's definitely the most time-consuming part, and also the messiest part!
Anyway, it worked. I made 17 squares for the 9-patch quilt-a-long. Now I'm up to 31, and just barely staying ahead of the game. I think I like the more mono-chromatic squares best... I'll have to do more of those.
And I made two knitting needle cases! One of these has long been promised to my good friend Lesley, and the other one is for give-a-way day on Wednesday!! So check back then and you could win it!!
Here's what they look like inside - I was lazy and just did a velcro patch pocket on these instead of the zipper, but I think it will do the trick.
Not bad for a couple hours work after baby's bed time!! Now if I could only be that productive the rest of my evenings!
