Work Day Work

On Monday, our bee had our monthly work day. This month, due to some repairs going on at the place we normally meet, we met at Kathy's house instead. She has an amazing sewing room floor (seriously, she has a whole basement!) and we fit 8 members of our bee in the space. Jack came along with me and totally immersed himself in Legos for the day. He and I both got a lot done :)

I started by working on one of my UFOs that isn't even on one of my lists this year - my red and white quilt. I sewed 25 more squares together to make 50 more 1/2 square triangles. I need to make a total of 480 HSTs and have about 180 done...lots of work still to go! After I got that done, I started working on my newest purse, which is so big, I think it will wind up being a computer bag! All I have left is to finish the sides (obviously) and insert grommets to put the handles through. 

I have also been working this week on my UFO for this month from Judy's UFO Challenge. She pulled #5, which is my Convergence quilt. Last you saw it, I had finished the center at retreat with my mom. 

Each night this week, I've added a border and now the top is done! Now I just need to make a back, quilt and bind it. I really am hoping to get it done by the end of the month.

I love the convergence quilt, another I have on my TO DO list but haven't started. Sewing with friends is just the best! cw
