Busy weekend!

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!
