Well, not really. I fully intended to post this yesterday. "Yes," I thought, "I will go home and make dinner and after that I'll write up my little blog post about my next Swoon block." Except after dinner I saw these sad, speckled bananas just crying out to be turned into muffins... So what could I do? I answered their call. And then because I was out of delicious nut butters to slather on my freshly made muffins, I made some chocolate almond butter, too.
By the time all that was done, all thoughts of blog posts were pushed from my mind and I drifted happily off to sleep with a belly full of homemade delights.
Anyway, though. On to the sewing!
I did finish up Swoon block 3:
Green and pink! I think this might be my favorite yet! I'm getting a bit faster at putting them together, too. I must be getting used to the pattern or something :)
I also gave in to the urge to make clothes. First, I made some silly PJ shorts out of some flannel I got for stupid cheap at Joann. I had never made pants or shorts before, so I decided my first try should be simple and cheap. They turned out pretty well, though it is way too hot for flannel anything right now.
But they fit and everything! I was pretty proud of myself. They took less than an hour to whip up- I will definitely be making more. Probably out of lighter fabric.
I also made a pretty skirt!
This one is made from a nice light cotton voile I got on sale from Fabric.com a couple of months back. It wasn't bad at all working with voile and it makes such a nice finished product! I definitely want to make more clothes with it.
So that's what I've been working on. I plan to get the backing put together for the wedding quilt this weekend and get my bee block for the month knocked out. I am really lazy about bee blocks, I've found. But the obligation to the other people means I do get them done before the end of the month, so that's something I guess.
What have you been working on? Have a great weekend!
