Happy Leap Year Day!

What will you do with an extra day this year? I hope to spend some of mine in the sewing room. But first I have some errands to run. Isn’t that always the case?

It’s exciting times here…I finished Easy Street so I reached my OMG goal for February! I was #1 at the Goal Setting Party. Here is a photo of it all bound and ready to go…

This is also one of my 1st Quarter Goals for the 2016 Finish Along, so two birds with one stone!

I also worked on a couple of BOMs this past weekend. I was able to make one of the main blocks for the second section of the neutral Gypsy Wife…

This block is a Pershing Block. I never heard that name, but I’ve seen the block before. It took a bit of maneuvering, but I got it done. I’m not certain how happy I am with the block, but I think once it gets put into the quilt it will be fine.

The other BOM I worked on this weekend was some hand stitching on Tuxedo’s Tales…

This is Tuxedo’s head for the January block. I have the white piece for his face and his red scarf all ready to stitch down now, so maybe I can get to that sometime today.

I think that’s all I have to share today. I have chores to do and errands to run today, then maybe I can spend a little time later in the day in the sewing room. If so, I will probably work a little more on the neutral Gypsy Wife. I have the other main block of Section 2 cut out and ready to piece, so that will be first on my agenda.

I hope you have a wonderful Leap Year Day! I will be linking up at the parties below. Head over to see some wonderful projects.
