It's been a little bit of this and a little bit of that all week long at my house. You can tell by looking at my design wall!
Maybe it was the sewing machine drama on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. It made me really glad that I enjoy hand-piecing! So I finished up another hand-pieced scrappy trips block in yellow.
But then I set up my backup sewing machine and while I was getting used to it again, I played with these Chandelier Bead blocks. These have been on my "want to try" list for a long time. I found a tutorial for them at a blog called Stitchin Therapy, but they are really very simple.
I played with a few tiny wonky stars for the next border of the Stay at Home Round Robin. These are fun, but I still have a long way to go!

Finally, I sashed and bordered the four tulips I appliqued a few weeks ago. I think that sashing fabric is my new favorite floral print! Pink, purple, yellow, and tulips - perfect!

I'll spend some time this afternoon layering and prepping this mini quilt for hand quilting. It measures just about 20 inches square.

P.S. My sewing machine drama will hopefully be over by next week at this time! The quilt shop owner (where I bought the machine) will be fixing my two year old Pfaff for me as soon as the parts come in. Yippee!
