Birthday Party and Friday Night Sew In

Well here he is the Birthday boy. He is now in double digits. 10 years old. His party was yesterday and the weather cooperated. He wanted to have a kickball game with a bunch of his friends and then just run around and play. A perfect birthday for a 10 year old.I was so tired after the cleaning, planning and hosting of a birthday party that I almost forgot that it was the Friday Night Sew In. I enjoyed spending a couple hours cutting and sewing. Here is the fabric for a swap that I am in. It is a red/aqua swap of 3.5 by 6.5 bricks. So I cut my bricks from this fabric.
My favorite is the little hedgehogs.
Next I pulled out the bags from a No Sew Swap that I had done. I was in a pink green white group. I haven't sewn them together yet because everyone had a different idea of pink green and even white. I put them on my design wall and replaced colors till I had blocks I liked.
I broke a needle and was half done with one. I only have 8 right now, I will either put a sashing and a border around these eight or I will come up with a ninth.
And last but not least I sewed on the binding of this quilt. One more too the finish pile as soon as I decide on a name and put it on the label.
Well as I look back I really did get a lot done.

You did get a lot done. I find cutting fabric as very tedious and I'm always glad to get it done.
