Mike's Birthday/Super Bowl Sunday

Happy 32nd Birthday Mike!!

Mom and I spent the Superbowl Sewing. We've done that for the last I don't know how many years.

We started out with making the pillow case kits we had bought the day before. A nice, quick project. My mom's..not sure what happened there but it took her quite a long time.


Valentine's Day Pillow Case

Then I continued cutting and then started the sewing of my Eclipse quilt. I'm using a Chutes and Ladders Jelly Roll. It appears Blue Underground doesn't have a working picture on their website so click HERE to see the blocks I made in the Fall in this same pattern.

These really don't look like anything quite yet. I'm halfway through sewing little sections together.
Mike dropped Holly and I off at my Mom's since we had been out in the truck. Our little sweetie pie has figured out how to use the running boards - THANK GOD! We were a little worried about that!

Great pillowcase. I can hear my pillow calling out for a better case -but since I am about to crash out on it in my codeine cough medicine induced stupor, sewing a new one will have to wait for another day.

I love the fabric you are using for your next quilt...or should I say one of your next QUILTS?! I get tired just reading your blog. You are like the Energizer bunny. You just keep going and going and going!
