Retreatin' with the S'mores

 Had more fun than made progress.  My first task on Monday was stitching the binding on a secret quilt I can't show.  Then I decided to stitch up the yellow monster blocks that I prepped last week.  The first block I attempted was missing one 2-1/2" square for one of the star points.  But I'm sure I have it at home.

So  I rocked on until this happened.   

And I thought I was doing so well ...

I managed to get 8 of the 9 done before I was ready to move on to other projects. (Note the missing star points on the bottom left ...)

Tuesday I worked on some miscellaneous gift items.  I quilted and added the binding to this little table topper that I made several years ago but everything else I attempted hit a stumbling block.

And yesterday I did a bit of this and that but didn't finish anything.  I'll give a full report when I get home.  


  1. Your yellow background blocks are really pretty, Libby! Glad you're making progress on some projects, but also having fun!

  2. I love the yellow and gray! Looking forward to seeing what else you had fun doing.

  3. That first photo made me laugh, Libby. Now, I don't feel so bad about the oops I made on Tuesday. Thanks for that! :o))

  4. Thanks for sharing the Dove hand sanitizer...I've not seen it. I'm basically only going to Walmart so will check next time I get there.
    You are so's good you can't see my sewing room. Meanwhile your yellows are with you. Yes, how do these little mistakes happen. I have to do that it seems once a project whatever it is I'm stitching.

  5. Ooops! (Love that background, though!)
