Random Stuff for a Rainy Monday

Today I'll just update you with some random finishes from the weekend.

I did the 2 Women of the Bible blocks yesterday

I'm using my collection of Fig Tree fabrics for these and I'm having a great time making them and I LOVE how they're turning out.

I worked on some swap blocks too.  I blogged about this swap about this time last month and did this month's this weekend.  I'm doing these with an Instagram friend Jean.....

The blocks below are my October and November, Jean's October blocks and right there in row 4, block 3 is one that a friend/neighbor/blog friend, Carolyn, made for me.  I may or may not have had a little influence in her liking this block and starting some of her own :)    I made her a block a couple of weeks ago and one day on my way out to run errands I popped it in her mailbox and hoped she'd put it in her quilt so one day last week I came home and there was one in mine  :)   I'm going to start connecting my blocks this week so as I get Jeans and I make my own, the assembly process goes quicker.

Here are my "Have Yourself A Quilty Little Christmas blocks too.

AND........last but not least, here is a picture of my daughter.  Do ya think she's ready to pop?

Her due date is this Thursday and we're hoping that Baby J will be here right around then, or earlier.....  I'll keep you posted.

OH....and not to leave anyone out.  Here's some pictures of my youngest.  She likes crafts....but not sewing so much.  She wanted to make some pillows for her English inspired bedroom so she did some searching on the internet.  I like that she wants to make stuff but I want her to feel like she did it on her own so I had her bring one of my travel machines up and set it up facing me and we sewed together.  I don't think it will happen much more but for the one day, it was fun....

I'm proud of her for attempting to make these on her own!  And I will admit that I did very little, she did them all on her own!!!
