An Extra Day to Sew!

Happy Leap Year Day!
An extra day!
It should be a holiday so everyone can take advantage
and do whatever they want!

But that means it's the last day in February,
and I haven't posted all month!

Believe me, it's not for the lack of sewing!
Seriously?  I've just never taken a fancy to my new laptop
and cringe at the thought of booting it up and trying to work on it.
Last spring, I bought a Dell, and it's as slow as molasses.

No computer time meant more sewing time!
I accomplished many small projects while waiting
for some inspiration,

until I saw THIS block from Hyacinth Quilt Designs.

I only intended to try one block, but I couldn't stop making them!
(You can see from the above picture of the Crayon Wallets
that stopping at just one is often a problem for me!).

Thank you to my friend, Sew Sweet Susie, for sharing her left-over
Riley Blake Extravaganza jelly roll with me!
So, this is, officially, my first finish
for 2016.

I have a few other projects in the works,
but that's all for today.
Its time to sew!

Have a wonderful day,
no matter what you decide to do!
