A busy day in my sewingroom

This was my day home from work (just working 50% this month) so I had decided to do some serious work in my sewingroom. I had planned to prepare a lot of projects. It's always so easy to grab something in my sewingbag when sitting in front of the tv or if I'm going away some place.
First project I started to prepare was Lynette Anderssons free BOM Noah's Ark. I know a lot of you already have stitched it so now it's my turn to do it. I've had these repro fabrics for a long time and I decided to use them for this projects. I only have small pieces of each fabric, and this is a miniature quilt so I think they will be perfect here.
Next I started to play with fabrics for three new blocks on Gail Pans BOM Angel's sewing basket. What's takes most of the time is finding the perfect fabric and colour. To get a harmony in colours in the quilt. Spendt several hours playing with colours. Sewing it together was done in no time. And now I have three new blocks ready to be stitched.
While browsing through blogs this morning I joined the Scrappy Cabin Challenge Scrap Swap #2 over at Melly and Me. I guess I'm not the only one having a lot of scraps in a basket and it will be fun swapping with another one. Looking at other blogs I always see beautiful fabrics that I don't have in my stash. Maybe my swap partner can add some new colours to my stash.
Tomorrow another day at work.
Saying for today:
I wish I were a Teddy Bear....
The more worn out you get,
the more valuable you become

I love your Angel blocks. I love the bunnies for Noah's Ark. I would love to do it for a future grandchild. I will follow your progress.

OH, I would love a day to just neat up my room some (hmmm, is neat a verb?) The projects you have started are very nice, can't wait to see the embroidery one that is done.

Your working on some lovely projects. Thinking I might do Lynette Anderson's BOM as well. It's so cute. The bunnies would be great for Easter. Don't think I've seen Gail's angels before - they're gorgeous. Happy stitching.
