Weekend Sewing

Hey there!  It was a busy weekend around here .... birthday celebrations, graduation festivities, and the usual weekend stuff (laundry, etc).  But, I did manage to get quite a bit of sewing done.  Here's a peek at what I was working on ...

Finishing a mini for a swap (details in a full post later this week).  I used by charms from Kelsey's Red & Aqua Swap.  I think it turned out pretty good.  And the FriXion pen was helpful in marking my lines.  :-)

And ... the long-awaited FSU quilt got underway.

A little background on this project ... I married a 'Nole.  And he's big into Seminole sports, t-shirts ... anything FSU basically.  I went to NCSU but I've converted a little.  ;-)  Anyway ... I've been picking up FSU fabric over several trips to Tallahassee for football games.  And lately I've been getting comments like "I've been waiting 5 years" and "don't make anything else until you make my quilt" and ... my favorite ... "that's nice, but it doesn't look like an FSU quilt."  LOL

So, since his birthday is tomorrow, I officially got started.  :-)  When I came downstairs with the first row you would have thought he was 5 years old on Christmas.  So, my goal this week is definitely to finish the FSU quilt!  :-)

What are you working on right now?  I'd love to hear about it.  :-)

Happy Sewing! :-)
