Weekend Doings

x and + ing it...x and + with some selvage of course!
HST LoveMore hst love
Would you believe that I cleaned my whole house (thoroughly), threw a very successful(!) Surprise Birthday Party, hung with the hubby and kids, finished some documents for work, coped with daylight savings stealing an hour, and STILL found time to sew this weekend?  
Oh yes, Spring is on the way.  I am getting my mojo back!
I prepped a tutorial for a 12.5" x and + quilt block in preparation for my month in the Modern Stitching Bee.  The x and + blocks resulted in some leftover HSTs which I decided I needed to make something with now otherwise...they'll just hang and get shuffled around and never used.  Thus, the two little heart blocks.  I have no idea what I will use them for (pillows?  placemats?  zip pouch?  incorporate into a quilt?) but I'm sure eventually I'll be inspired to give them a proper finish. 
Tutorial for the x and + block will be posted at the end of the month.

The Low Volume Swap is still coming - however, fingers crossed, I have a potential sponsor and am waiting to see if that is going to work out.  I will open Sign-Ups once I have heard back from them!

Hope you all had a productive weekend as well...
