Good morning! I thought I'd squeeze this post in while I had a moment or two. This morning I'll be heading over to Highland for Tips & Techniques. This "class" is held on the 2nd Thursday of every month at Rosemary's Fabrics. It is so fun and I always look forward to seeing my friends and  Show-n-Tell. Between Rosemary's talk and the class projects, it's always inspirational!

But the main reason I'm posting today is to let you know that tonight is FRIDAY.NIGHT.SEW.IN!!!! I'm so happy because it couldn't have come at a better time. This week has been (and will continue today & tomorrow) packed to the max with stuff to do. Two of the days have been filled in with my mother ... I try to get down to her house on Wednesdays to mow her lawn and do miscellaneous chores for her. On top of that we've been waiting our turn for her basement to get a re-do so it never leaks again and Friday is that day. What a job, though, that has been prepping it. You see, she has been in that house almost 50 years and the basement? Yowsa! We had to get everything moved out from the walls 4 feet. On top of that, a few years ago she had a mouse infestation so you can understand the problem, right?

So anyway that was 2 of my days this week but wait! There's more!!! However I won't bore you with those details. Suffice it to say that I have been so busy that I actually DESERVE FNSI!!!! You can find out all the information by clicking the button below. You should do this and join me & the rest of the gals!!! We all probably deserve an uninterrupted evening of sewing!

This is the project I plan on working on. You'll remember that it is part of my 2016 UFO Challenge. This is how it looked at the beginning of April:

And this is how it looks today:

I've been busy getting all the blocks trimmed to size and I started assembling the blocks. In order to complete the assembly, I've got a star block to paper piece and it goes right there on the bottom row in the center. See the open space?

After that there's corner stones and borders to figure out! Yup, right on schedule for a potential finished top by the end of the month! YIPPEE!!!!

Friday night cannot get here fast enough!!!

See you Saturday with my project update!
