Ready for FNSI

Friday Night Sew-In is tomorrow and I'm good and ready to stay inside - where it's warm - and do some therapeutic sewing. (Well, sewing is therapeutic when it doesn't drive me crazy.)

I haven't decided if I'm going to bring Swoon out of exile. I'm already missing it, but there is still fear that I will ruin the quilt once and for all.

"Exile" is the spare bedroom, where the blocks are hidden out of sight.

Alternatively, I could work on some more bow-tie blocks. I have lots of squares cut and ready to sew.

I've been adding to my pile slowly. I now have 126 blocks completed; I was planning to make 208 and have a queen-sized quilt, but I think I might make this one smaller now that I've decided to make Swoon for my bed.
These blocks have been fun to make, especially since I received some wonderful red fabrics from my bloggy friends Jen of Miss Punkie Pie and Julie of My Quilt Diary. This is my no-pressure quilt - there's no deadline for me to finish it.

I might also choose to work on a little Valentine's project using these teeny 1.5" squares.

So, I have lots of choices, all of them exciting to me! 

I hope you will join me in FNSI - you can sign up with Bobbi this month over at Crafty Vegas Mom.

See you tomorrow night!

I will be picking up the pedal again tomorrow (I hope!) I am looking to finish stitching up the parts of Paige's quilt that I had to pick out in order to add more backing before adding the binding. What a mess! I may even upload my second-ever blogpost explaining the tedious steps. The final product is really wonderful, despite all the setbacks!

Sounds like a great plan Rachel. Let Swoon out of prison LOL!

I'm not going to officially sign up but I will probably do some sewing. And get on Swoon! You can do it! I'm almost done with block 3.
