Sewing Day at June's with BJ and Ros!

I had a great day sewing and gabbing at June's house with her, BJ and Ros! BJ and Ros brought chicken salad sandwiches, watermelon, sausage rolls, and biscotti. It was all really tasty and I can't wait to get their recipes. It was nice of them to bring stuff and give June a break from feeding us! I brought donuts for the morning and managed to resist eating one, that may be a first!
I accomplished so much while I was there and really enjoyed myself. I was supposed to go up to my sister's house to celebrate my stepdad's brithday and mother's day with my mom, but the plan changed three times and in the end I didn't go. I am feeling guilty though and so I may go up early tomorrow. In any event I will be seeing them next weekend (some of the plans got changed to next weekend without my opinion on it) and my nephew Ben turned three and my brother is having a party for him next Sunday. It is about an hour to their houses and ahem I always seem to have to be the one doing all the driving and they almost never come here. Seriously I have been here two years and my sister has been here twice, and my brother once. Anyway, enough on that...I love them, but well, you know.
On to happier topics...I made the rest of the May blocks for Amy's Passion BOM 2010! This first one is Ohio Star and went together quickly and looks fine.


This next one is called Follow the Leader and I will say that it is growing on me. I didn't like it AT ALL when I first saw it, it went together nicely and now that I look at I see more of the design than I saw earlier, so it is growing on me.

Roslyn brought me my Roundabout Schnibbles all quilted (and my Quilt History BOM 2009) and I machine attached the binding to it and the other...then tonight while watching some TV (after riding my bike!) I hand sewed the binding on. I love, love, love this Schnibble! Might be my favorite, but I also love Cindy Lou Who...and Winter White...and...

I also managed to complete the second third of the Night and Day blocks and get another row on Tara and Tommy's quilt! I have another partial row done and am down to just the last third of the strips and blocks to do! I really like how it is coming out as it is growing!
So all in all, a very productive sewing day and I couldn't be happier. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!
