Weekend Update!

So last weekend was my mom's birthday and when my husband was out of town to see his family. That means I was able to make some progress on a few things.

1.) First, I can do a little happy dance as "You're So Sweet, I Can Hardly Bear It!" is finished and I have a pic to show for it.

18ct. Cream Aida
DMC, 2 x 1
2.) I also made some more progress on the Butterfly cushion. I did have a slight problem where I pushed part of the pin through my finger so I may need to take a break while my finger heals. Here is the progress with more black added and the pink is finished on that half.

3.) I also made some progress on the blanket for my soon-to-be-born niece. I added about 4 more inches and made a color change.

4.) I also made a few projects on my sewing machine: finished some quilted coasters and made my first placemat.

All in all, I was very productive this weekend while crafting and spent some quality time with my family. I am excited to see what this upcoming week brings. :) Happy stitching everyone!
