A sewing day

 I spent Tuesday sewing with a few friends at the store. I put my asian Circle and Spin on a design wall and moved and rearranged for a long time. It is very busy and very bright. I hope it is not TOO busy and bright.  I got all the rows sewn together and some of the rows sewn to each other, so I should be able to get it finished soon.

I didn't do any sewing yesterday...I defrosted the freezer and cleaned the basement instead. All day. Not fun.
 Jane came and got her version of the Disappearing Nine Patch sewn together. So pretty!
 Diana worked on her Circle and Spin too. Her daugher helped her choose fabrics from her and her mom's older fabric stash.
Laura worked on more blocks from her Sampler pretty!
Jane's Sampler #1 Club met that night. Last month they made the Churn Dash and Grecian Square blocks. She got ambitious and started dipping into her Thimbleberry stash and made a bunch of blocks. She was thinking about using the Snowball blocks in between, but doesn't know if she likes them, so is dreaming up a new plan! It's fun to see them in all their variations!

Have to clean up the kitchen and do a little more work in the basement, then hope to get back to quilting my mom's quilt. I would like to finish sewing the Circle and Spin together as well. We'll see what the day brings.
