I haven't been sewing hardly at all. I just can't seem to get motivated right now. I have been looking at all my projects and reading books and magazines but when I have the time, I don't have the want to. When I don't have the time, I just keep thinking of all the things I want to be sewing on. This holiday weekend is a long weekend for me so maybe I can get a few things done.
I was able to sew a little on Saturday. I got a little hand sewing done and some tatting too. After that, I got some stuff ready for a sew day on Sunday with my friends.
For the Sunday sewing, we made cupcake blocks and we will be swapping them later...it was so much fun to get together and sew with friends. Of course, we had to have food and cupcakes for dessert. I had a good time being with my buddies and actually got some sewing done too... We all met over at Martha's and we spent the afternoon making our cupcake blocks, playing with her dogs and eating cupcakes.
We had real food too.
Yum, those cupcakes are good!
Dee's first cupcake block...
This is so much fun!
Another one finished!
Aren't these cute? Judy gave us all ceramic cupcake boxes with a piece of chocolate inside!
Here we are with one of our cupcake blocks. We had alot of fun working on these together. It's so much fun to see how everyone's was so different. The instructions were to have a pink background with a cupcake on the diagonal. We all drew up our own pattern and we'll exchange later next month. Some will embellish and some won't. It's left up to the individual but they were all cute! There are 4 other ladies in the swap that couldn't make it. We will have 12 blocks each and we can put it together any way we want. We will be getting together to swap and sew the quilt up next month. More fun times with friends to come for the summer months. We planned 3 other swaps too so please stay tuned! Til next time, happy sewing.
