Bow Ties in Green

I arrived home from a vacation last night, and all I could think about was getting back to my sewing machine! Of course, there are a million other things to do when you've been away for awhile - laundry, groceries, picking up the mail that's been held, etc., etc., but before I got started on all of that this morning, I decided to sew.

The 6 inch bow tie blocks I've been working on go together really fast, so I dug around in my green scrap bin, found some pieces that would work, and got busy!


Before I knew it, there were four more bow ties to add to my collection.


Now there's a happy bunch!

  10. That's one of the BEST Bow Tie patterns around!! The only other one I like to make is the 3-D version. SEW glad that you gave yourself the gift of some sewing time BEFORE chores and errands! Such a wonderful start to any day.

  12. Laundry will keep, but those blocks are too cute to ignore for long. We quilters have to set our priorities. Sew first, work later.

  17. Very fun bow ties. There is always so much after one has been on the road. But spending a bit of time in the sewing room ranks up there for me. It seems to settle me down and say, yes I'm really home.
