What was I suppose to be working on?

I think on Friday I commented that the vest for my BIL was to be my focus this past weekend. His 40th birthday is a week from today and I need to get it finished and in the mail. I know it's going to be late but I don't want it to be really late. So here's what I actually did this weekend.

2 big stars for the Oh My Stars QAL. These are 12 1/2 inches. I have 8 more of these to make before I work on the yellow stars with black background fabric. These don't look like a vest to me.

6 stacks of medium star blocks for the same quilt. These are 8 1/2 inches.

Here are all 25 medium sized blocks laid out. So... that's 27 quilt blocks done, what about that vest?

Friday evening and Saturday morning I worked on the second sock for my mom. I finished the leg and started the heel while my husband and I watched "Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark". Forgot how awesome that movie is. We are planning to watch the rest of the original trilogy again but I didn't touch the vest on Friday. I did a bit on Saturday...

... but on Sunday I forced myself to work on only the vest. I finished the front, sewed the shoulders and sides together and started the neck trim. Finished the neck this morning and since this picture was taken I finished the trim around the right arm hole as well. Just have the left one to do and then I'll throw it in the washer and dryer and it should be in the mail tomorrow as long as it doesn't fall apart in the wash this afternoon. Glad to know I'll have at least one thing for Finish it up Friday this week.


  1. love the stars! You're going to have a great quilt there. My socks are so comfy - I need more than one birthday a year Put another pair on my Christmas wishlist, okay? I'll try to get a pic for you of the birthday boy in his new vest!
