Fiber Tuesday #22

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  I don't have much to share with you.  I spent last week stockpiling projects to give me a little buffer while I figure out how I'm going to work outside of the home and keep things going here.  It's been a long time since I've worked two jobs.  Yesterday, I did grocery shopping for two weeks worth of groceries and put a bunch meals in the freezer.  I think I got 10 done so I only need to do 4 more but will do as many as I have ingredients for just to have a cushion.  That will free time up in the evening from cooking and give me an extra day every other weekend to sew.

Fiber Tuesday Link Party for all fiber crafts

This week I showed how to make a log cabin quilt block.  I really love the log cabin block because it is so versatile.  As you can see below mine doesn't look like what most think of when they hear log cabin block.

Show me what you've been up to!!
I've made a Pinterest board to share all of the wonderful things you guys are sharing.  I'm also sharing them on Facebook.  I hope that my sharing is bringing you lots of traffic.  Now for the most viewed link last week:

Our Top Viewed Link Was:
Lap quilt for uncle

I hadn't thought of making each block based on the activities that the person you giving it to enjoys.  It certainly makes it one of a kind.

We have new buttons you can grab a featured button or a party button if you'd like to share where you party at.

  1. Gosh your organised, evening meals pre prepared always frees up time and stress so your doing well already :) Im working on wonky log cabin blocks, found Christmas fabric which needs to be used up, hence the blocks :)

    1. I'm trying. lol How are you liking the wonky blocks. I'm afraid it would send my OCD into overdrive.

  2. Thanks so much for hosting the party:-)
