SEWjo Saturday 4 ( and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Adam!)

I hope you are having an awesome week!

I am sad to say, I have no finishes this week!  It was a super busy week for me but I did manage to tidy up some stuff and get back to my list of WIPs ( the never ending project pile).


This is ( will be) the Deployment Quilt from Rachel Griffith's book Made With Love. It was started last November when Michael left and then the anemia happened...I am more than behind but I WILL get caught up! So, this project is out and up and will be done very soon!  It can be his WELCOME HOME quilt :o)


Today is also this guy's birthday!!!  Today we will be going to the Science Museum to celebrate!!!  So, if I do not get a chance to comment on your fun projects today, it will be because I am making bubbles or looking at dinosaur bones :o)



The giveaway incentive this week is a fat quarter bundle of Dear Stella fabrics and a sample set of Aurifil thread that includes all of the thread weights for you to try! For your chance to win this bundle, just link up!  One random winner will get this AWESOME bundle!


BUTTERFILES!!!!



Let's get our SEWjo (sewing mojo) going!  This link up will be open from Saturday through Sunday to give you LOTS of time in case you need to do silly other stuff like make dinner or driving your kids somewhere and then there is always making sure you have good lighting. The things we all have to go through...sigh ;o)

To participate in the party please... 
1. Share a project from this past week or TODAY!!! Link it up from your blog or, if you do not have a blog, your Flickr photos. It can be a  FABULOUS finish or a WIP ( any progress is always good)that you are working hard to get off your sewing table!

2. Share a link back to SEWjo Saturday somewhere in your post. I would be over the moon if you grabbed the button and shared that too ;o)

3. Share some love with some of the other posters!!!!  Visit some of the linked up photos and get inspired by other quilty friends' work. And please leave some sunshine in their comments! Let's support each other!  

Thank you everyone again for linking up!!!!  I will be looking at everyone's projects and sharing some love as soon as I can get caught up after the birthday weekend!!!

Congratulations to Ella and Nesta!!!  Love the Zakka Block Quilt!



i am already looking forward to this weekend!!!!

Hi Kim..I like the pattern style with the stars a solid and same color (possibly) scraps background. I am working on using my scraps this year and the star is one of my top my favorite patterns to make! Mind if I copy cat?

I am so sorry, I am trying to rectify the linky tools situation. It is not being cooperative!
