Friday Night & Some Progress

Last night was the FNSI, but I was too tired to accomplish what I had intended.  I did get some rows done on this project though!

I had planned to make some real progress today, on the two baby blankets I needed to work on.  Instead, my boss called me at about 8:30 this morning because of an issue with work.  So I spent about twelve hours on that, & didn’t have much time left over for baby blankets.  I did manage to get a start on cutting the pieces though.  One blanket is for a boy & one for a girl.  They are cousins & were born one day apart from each other.  I have a set of neutral colors I plan to cut into 6 inch squares for both blankets. But the pieces here will be used to make 4 patch squares which will be organized into the shape of an A for the girl, & a J for the boy.  They will be very simple, but I think they will turn out cute.

Ale-8 was my photographer today!  He got a nice camera for Christmas from his grandparents.  I think he takes pretty good photos.  🙂  I look forward to checking out what everyone else has been working on for the sew in!  Leave me a link if you posted anything, I want to make sure I don’t miss any!

  2. I’m glad you were able to get something done last night. Sorry about work calling you… that’s a bummer! It’s nice that you got the cutting done for the quilts. That’s quite an accomplishment! Can’t wait to see them! 🙂

  3. Sometimes things don’t go as planned. You had everything ready for a great FNSI and you still accomplished a little bit.Never mind, next time you’ll get it through ( if your boss doesn’t remember calling again).

    • Well I’ve still been making progress today on those 4 patch squares. As you’ve said, sometimes things don’t go as planned – but I’m not going to let that keep me from getting all my craft projects done on time this year!! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Are the blankets quilts or are you knitting them?

    • The baby blankets I am working on are to be quilts. The other project is a broomstick lace scarf. I love having a project like that going, because I can sit in bed watching TV, & still work on it!

  6. I like how you’re going to organize the blocks into an ‘A’ and ‘J’. Looking forward to seeing them finished! Working calling sounds like something that would happen with me, I understand how that goes! I’m glad you got some things accomplished. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    • Thank you, Gina. I like the simplicity of it, but it will still be personal to the kids. I was thinking today that I could make up a stash of those 4 patch blocks and then just save them around until another baby comes along needing a quilt! One of my biggest problems is lack of time – but since they are so simple, they work well for me. 🙂
