sewing Sunday

I actually sewed some this weekend.
I had two Birthday blocks to complete. One is a substitute for the block I couldn't get. I'm still going to try it, but....I am having trouble with that block.
The other was 7 blocks for Tammy. This was an easy pattern, so it went together VERY quickly.

I also did some cleaning. I also found out I can't find my SS card, my passport, birth certificate for DD and marriage license. Where is everything????

Eagle wall hanging

A friend needed a small wall hanging for her son's Eagle Scout presentation. So, this is what I came up with.

Hope they like it. If not....guess I'll start over.
It was good to sew some tonight. Still need to do the binding.

Still not much sewing going on. Two big projects going on at GS and PTC, so my time is limited. DH came home for 10 days and we will be doing more family things away from the house, so that limits my time too. But it is a good limit.

I am using some of my fabric for DD's Bronze award for Girl Scouts. She made some pet beds. Still need to figure out the yardage for that and she is making dog tug of war tows by braiding fabric. So, I'll have some use, but not really any sewing.

I received the fabric for the Eagle award wall hanging and am excited about getting that started. I will need to add in that fabric and then delete it when the wall hanging is done. What fun.

Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend.

Still not doing much on the quilting, but I did get to embroider some yesterday. I'm making a small wall hanging for an Eagle Scout.
My problem now is my eagle is more than the 6.5" I wanted it to be. Just a fraction over, but.... So, I need to figure out what I'm doing with the center and if I still want to make a star from it. Time will tell.

I have 2 birthday blocks I need to work on and hope to do some this week.

I just have too much Girl Scout and PTC Fundraiser things going on. But, hoping to get some time soon.
