No sewing...

I'm sitting here wondering why I feel sort of strange and I suddenly realised that I haven't sat with Mr Toyota and sewn anything since last Saturday!  That is a record for me...  5 days with no sewing?  Weird.  Especially when I have a 100 Day Hustle list of 25 things to accomplish (14 left to do in the next 24 days), a 4th Quarter list with 9 things (6 remaining) and several partially completed Christmas items that NEED to get done so I can ship them to Canada!  Time is a-tickin' so I PROMISE [myself] that I will sew tomorrow night when I get in from work!

So, I will leave you with a few photos of my Wonky Log cabin blocks which are the effort of two Bee Groups that I am in {Bee Europa and FQR Kinky Bee} and are on both of my lists:

This quilt-to-be takes up the ENTIRE kitchen floor!!
I have 39 blocks (each 12.5" unfinished) and am just waiting on one person to return two more.  I will make one last block so I will have 42 blocks to sew together.  Fingers crossed that it is big enough for my king sized bed - if not then I will sew some more!!!!  I have already 'booked' it in to a long arm quilter for January so I MUST get this sewn together so I can give it to her at the next LMQG meeting at the beginning of the new year.  Nothing like a deadline to keep me motivated!

Green, grey, white and purple wonky log cabins

Oh dear, sounds like it's almost a sewing emergency - must keep your sanity! Hope you fit some sewing time in soon!

The bee blocks are looking good!

It is hard to work and find time to quilt too. I know. But it is doable. Just remember to ENJOY. Congrats on reaching 300 followers!
