Friday Wrap-Up and a Win!

This week has been a bit crazy with not as much sewing as I would like! I did have Monday off. One could say it was for President's Day but let's be honest here! I live in Louisiana; it was for Mardi Gras! The university students had Tuesday and part of Wednesday off but the staff was back on campus.

On Monday I did some scrap sorting as I shared on Instagram and Twitter. (Follow me! I'm craftyashleyb on both!) Of course while I was sorting I had some kitty help in the form of Sophie.

I got a good bit sorted out but then immediately cut into three new pieces of fabric. I almost didn't create the Block of the Month over at the Orange Peel. But at the last minute I decided to. This is what I ended up making:

Of course I have posted about this group before. Every month there is a random winner chosen from those who create the blocks. And guess who won this month!!!


I am getting an awesome bundle of ten fat quarters from the Tea Garden Collection by Molly Hatch. I'm very excited about this collection. I haven't a clue what I'm going to make. Especially since I have yet to make anything with the bundle I won back in March!! That was nearly a year ago!!! And after searching through my old posts, I just realized that I never shared that I won a fat quarter bundle of the Priory Square collection back in November from Maureen Cracknell! Here's a link to see what I won!

I did end up taking half of Wednesday off to help my sister take her kids to see an eye specialist an hour away. It was not all doctor fun as we did a bit of shopping and had some fun!

So while I didn't do a bunch of sewing I did get a bunch accomplished. Hopefully this weekend I'll actually get to cut and sew!

Happy Sewing!
