Friday Finish - Random Boxes

Have had a cold this past week, almost better but no energy, so no sewing. I keep reading about the 80's on others posts, but here in California have had low 60's during the day, and low 40's at night. I would like to sit in the sun.

Posting a flimsy finish that didn't get posted several week back when it was made. Made two since they went so fast. Headed to Project Linus. Finished size is 40”x60”.

Maybe I need to take out that orange print with the pale yellow background and put in a dark purple or gray.)*&& Oops, hate taking out stuff. Still posting as a finish.

Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts for other Friday finishes.

Quilt in the bag

Included in one of the bags of fabric scraps I got from a friend was a almost a finished flimsy. Measured 22½”x32”. Thought I would add a few rows. Took one seam out, added 4 rows. Lucky there were extra matching scraps in the bag. I plan on adding borders.

Construction was interesting. Sewn with navy blue thread, with 2-3” of thread hanging off each seam. Several blocks had stains. I washed it in the utility sink, still needed to replace 2 blocks.

Spent some time planting my potted plants this week. Some of the succulents need bigger pots. I have the best luck with snap dragons, always have 6 pots filled with them.
