A weekend at the cabin

This weekend I went up to a friends cabin for a sewing weekend.  Two came friday morning and we prepared our sewing spaces and started to sew. When the owner of the cabin came late in the evening we had already done a lot of sewing. 


My working station this weekend.  My first focus was to sew a lot of log cabin.  Last weekend I prepared all the blocks I had left to sew.  Easy to just sew and sew when I had lined up the blocks like this.  But it was booooooooooring LOL LOL.  But being hard to myself I was not allowed to start anything else before these blocks was done.  And I had brought A LOT of projects to sew on this weekend. 


And so had the other girls too.


Still a lot of snow at the cabin so we had a natural wine cooler.


And during saturday morning all my prepped log cabin blocks was done.  Now I have 80 log cabin blocks to sew together.  Some day now I will lay them all out on the floor and start sewing them together.


One of the ladies sewed this quilt together.  Love it.  I really have to start sewing some dresden plate soon.


One project I started on late saturday, but sunday morning it was put away in a bag, and I guess it will never be done.  Sometimes you start with the best intentions, but this project did not turn out as I wanted it. 


Luckily I had more projects to pick from, and sewing on this made me happy.  I am starting to like blue fabrics and I really like the look of this.  

This has been a great weekend.  All my log cabin blocks done and are ready to be sewn together, appliqued down two sides of outher borders on my Aunt Sarah’s quit, and I have almost finished a sewing bag.  We have laughed, had serious conversations, sewed and eaten good food.  Quality time with good quilting friends.

Saying for today:

Neat! The log cabin blocks are great, love the colors. Is that hand embroidery in blue? Your own design? Looks like something I'd enjoy stitching!
