2. cut fabric for dresden plates: Done... i absolutely love the colors... soo cheery and bright...I even cut two of each so that I can make one for myself too!!!!

3. make other blouse: NOPE :(   Hoping for this week!  and this time I'll take pictures of my process :)

Goals for this week:

So, this week I hope to be a little more focused than normal. lol (if that's possible)

I hope your weekend was what you wanted it to be. Mine was very busy... My birthday was on Thursday and so we celebrated a birthday bowling party on Friday. It was sooo much fun :) I'm still hurting...Then we went to visit the grandchildren and celebrated again with them :) They loved my number 45 balloons!!! lol

Goals from last week:

1.Exercise 3 times this week

2.Complete 2 mug rugs for the Quilting Gallery swap
YES!! and they don't look too bad... i'm looking forward to receiving my own

3.Make a blouse (yes...for real) lol

Wellll... here it is 10:00pm Sunday nite..... If you were following the dates, you might have noticed that I skipped last week.... I wasn't so productive the week before and then this week I was sick with a yucky cold.... still feel a tad weak but at least my nose has stopped running lol  Anyone else suffering from a cold/flu?

So, in the last two weeks I did complete a few sewing projects:
1. Finished the January block for PBee&J quilting bee on flickr. It was called a liberated wedding ring using foundation piecing. I love the feel of fabric and paper together...

2.Packaged off the contents for February block with Fresh & Funky Bee-ginners Quilting Bee on Flickr.  I'm asking everyone to make a chocolate strawberry four patch.. doesn't it sound delicious... I hope they like the fabrics and that it's not too hard to complete.

Goals for this week:

1.Exercise 3 times this week
2.Complete 2 mug rugs for the Quilting Gallery swap
3.Make a blouse (yes...for real) lol

Ok, that's it for now :) Hope everyone has a great week ahead ..... (reaches for the tissues) lol
