Friday Night Sew-In and a few other fun things

Tonight is the Friday Night Sew-In. Maybe I can get a few things done. Well maybe not done as in finished, but progress on a few quilting projects this evening would be great! I'd like to finish quilting the quilts for the children's hospital and work on a few more blocks for Blessings From the Hollow. Picking out fabrics for May's LePetite project, Candy Bar Pinwheels, is also on my list of things to do, but I'm not sure that I'll get to that tonight. Have you started it yet?  I do want go for a bike ride with my family after dinner this evening, since it's such a beautiful day. And after that I'll get down to sewing!

Last week I won the Versatile Blogger Award from Linda!   Check back soon to learn more about me and the award.  It's so fun!  I can't wait to do the post about it next week!

Also, I finally took the plunge and ordered my new iron today.  Thanks for all of your suggestions and iron experiences. Some of the comments from that post and my last Wordless Wednesday post are still missing due to the Blogger troubles earlier in the month.  Is anyone else still missing comments? Anyway I've decided to go with the new Panasonic Cordless 360 Degree Multidirectional Iron.  Because of the unique shape of the soleplate, they say you can iron in any direction.  This could come in handy when I'm ironing a quilt with lots of seams!  I'll let you know how it goes.

Strips for Blessings From the Hollow ready for the Friday Night Sew-In!

Oh, one other thing!  Kim has a great video on her blog.  I had never heard of a Jelly Roll race before!  If you haven't seen it yet you should go have a look.  What a way to make a quick quilt!  

Have a happy Friday!

Have fun with the sew in. I have plans to hopefully get something done. And good luck with the new iron. I checked it out. Looks pretty cool!

Can't wait to see what you've come up with for this month's project! I've been helping a friend move tonight after work, so needless to say, the FNSI was out for me this time around!
