Friday Night Sew-In

Here is my Friday Night Sew-In results post, finally. It's been a little crazy here as my son turns 6 on Monday and is having his birthday party tomorrow afternoon. Here is what I was able to accomplish. Go visit Bobbi to see what everyone else got done last night.

My son and I put together 144 lego wheels. He is having a lego party.

We also made this birthday bunting for the fireplace.

I was able to sneak away to the sewing machine for a little bit. I pieced block 7 of the Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along hosted by Moose on the Porch Quilts.

I cut out blocks 8 and 9 and started piecing block 8 before I had to stop and do other things.

My son also helped me decide on the layout for these quilt blocks. Here they are all lined up in their rows waiting to be put together.

My son's birthday present. I finished knitting the hood last night (not pictured) and started sewing in ends. Sleeves, fronts and back are all attached and sewed the left sleeve seam. Still need to do the side seams, right sleeve seam, add the hood and do the pocket and button bands. I can totally get that done by Monday and host a birthday party here tomorrow, right?
Anyway... cake is in the oven, still have the house to clean. I'm glad birthdays only come once a year and that I only have 2 kids.
