Now to go see everyone's progress!

Wish I could report that I got a lot done, but my sewing time was more limited than I had planned. Has that ever happened to you? I did finish a little romper for my little granddaughter for St. Patrick's Day and made a few blocks for my civil war quilt. Seems like I hit roadblocks on every block I started. The fabric I wanted to use for one block (Union Shield) was a perfect red and white stripe, but too bright...didn't play nice with the other fabrics in the quilt. Thought I would tea dye it to see if it looked better. Liked the results but took away from sewing time. Then I needed to print templates for another block and ran out of ink in my printer. Finally picked a block that didn't require anything special....and made a couple more setting blocks. Regardless of the results, it felt good to play with fabric for a few hours!
