Small Progress

My house is filled with sickness today.  I seem to be the only one well but of course I am definitely affected.  My oldest called me to pick her up from school at 10:30.  Before the call I was able to make some small progress on two big projects.

I'm making an extremely minimal sparkle quilt (tutorial at Oh, Fransson!  )  I managed to make two stars today.  This will end up as a snuggle blanket for the sofa.

I'm also working on a snuggly couch blanket for a friend that is going through a tough time right now.  She pinned a quilt by A Few Scraps and I'm doing my best to make something similar.  Unfortunately I don't have an Accuquilt Go! cutter so I had to cut all the triangles by hand and now I'm piecing the strips.  Slow but steady :)

I spent the afternoon doing some canvas painting for a few of my small projects.

While I did that, Ella was feeling better and decided to make a Mother's Day gift for her Grandma.  It's sure to be a hit!


  1. Your triangles look great so far. I've never gotten the hang of triangles, but that quilt you linked to is so cute, maybe I'll get brave and give it another try. Maybe.

    I hope all the sickness in your house is gone very quickly and that you don't end up with it next!

  2. Thanks Kat! They are actually going pretty smoothly. Of course I haven't tried to insert them into the top yet :0
