April Block Finish

20130413-095700.jpg

I finished the April block for the Sugar Block Club, and I really like it. Don’t you love the orange deer print? It’s from Momo’s Oh Deer line from Moda. So cute!

This was a paper pieced block and it went really quickly. I live how Amy (the pattern designer) includes instructions on what size to cut the fabric for the piecing. That way there isn’t a lot if wasted fabric.

Now I’m off to work on some other projects and hopefully get my closet organized. I was hoping to pack away my winter stuff but we are expecting more snow and cold on Monday and Tuesday. I won’t complain though because we need the moisture.

I also started Crossfit this week. My husband and I signed up for intro classes and we have finished the first three if six before we can move into the regular classes. I’m really loving it! It’s challenging and fun and constantly changing so it doesn’t get boring. Between that and running and eating clean, I’ve lost 7 lbs in two weeks! Yay!

Well I hope you have a great Saturday. I’m going to get out and enjoy the near 70 degree temps. I’ve even busted out my shorts for today.

Happy Crafting!

Catching Up On March

Well I’m getting there. Here is my finished March block for the Sugar Block Club. I like it. I was waiting for a block to showcase that bear print! I think it will blend well with my other blocks. Apparently there is a storm on its way here. We’ll see what becomes of it. I’m not holding my breath for a snow day, but it sure would be nice!
One more block to get caught up. That one is paper piecing, which I have grown to love but seem to take a bit longer to put together. Ill keep you posted.

Happy Crafting!

Sugar Block Club February Block and A New Finish

20130202-213921.jpg

Today was my Sugar Block Club monthly meet up at Fancy Tiger Crafts. It was a lot of fun. I prepped ahead of time and cut my pieces and templates and punched my paper pieces at home before I went. I almost finish the whole block in class but messed up on one of my last pieces. So I had to finish it up at home. It turned out great for my first attempt at paper piecing. I was torn over which fabrics to pick this month but I am really happy withy he orange chevron with the robins egg blue and white. They really complement one another. This block also looks really good with my January block. I can’t wait till next month!

I also finished up the apron I’ve been working on. It turned out really great! Lots of nice sized pockets to fit all of her goodies. See…

And, of course, since I was at my LQS for my class, I couldn’t help but pick up a few FQs in pretty valentiney fabrics (yes I did make up that word), and some more hexagon paper pieces. I have some ideas for these items and some flour sack towels I’ve had sitting around…

I have big crafting plans tomorrow since neither the Broncos nor the Patriots made it to the Super Bowl. So hopefully I’ll have more goodies to post tomorrow! Happy Crafting.
