Friday (soon to be) finishes...

My day started waaay too early and will last waaay too long. Here's the sweetened condensed version... try to keep up...

‎4:45 alarm... kiddo #1 off to skiing with school at 5:45, kiddo #2 early band practice at 7:30, kiddo #3 off for snowshoeing with school at 7:30... after school, kiddo #2 to basketball tournament. Homework? Probably. Squeeze in an early dinner. 6:00, kiddo #3 to band gig at Trinity. 6:30, pick up kiddo #1, then home for her dinner, shower, 2 hours of homework, bed. 10:45 pick up kiddo #3 from band gig. Tomorrow, 6:45 kiddo #1 to Victoria for the day, pick up at 10:00. I think I'm on auto pilot.

Reminds me a little of this day.

That said, the sun is shining, I've heard a few birds singing, and I had a coffee too large to even be allowed. Lots on the go all around me these days, including in my sewing room. I thought I'd share a few projects that are sooo close to being finished. I've been in the mood lately for darker colors and prim stitching so here's what I've been up to...

A sweet little window sill/candle/table mat...
A square topper that grew from an orphaned log cabin block that was just begging to be used...
A little wall quiltie/table runner that grew from a stack of long-forgotten-already-pieced half square triangles that were also just begging to be used...
And a runner with wool saltbox houses that I can't wait to cross off the list. This poor quiltie has been on the go for so long.
Hope your Friday treats you well!

Phew! I feel your pain...kinda. This week I've been back and forth for various lessons, doctor appointments, and such. Plus feeling a bit under the weather and trying to wrap things up for my soon-to-be 6 year old's birthday gathering tonight with grandparents. It's sunny here, though, so that kind of helps! Hope your day is filled with sunshine there! *hugs*
