Happy Friday Friends!
I’m always happy to see this day of the week. Not that I don’t enjoy my job, I do. I just enjoy my free time a tad bit more. 😊 Especially when it kicks off a weekend where I have nothing to do except what I WANT to do.
Before we get to that though, I want to share this week’s cross stitch finish. Stitching with the Housewives has a monthly release called Calendar Crates. It’s in Priscilla's usual chalkboard fashion, and features seasonal elements. The patterns include both large and small charts.
I fully finished the release for October this week…
This was September’s…
this was August’s…
August and September patterns were stitched on the usual 14 count Aida in Chalkboard Black by Witchelt. For the October charts, I used 14 count Aida but in just plain black from Charles Craft. It was a nice change, I think.
Now, for this weekend’s plans… you won’t believe it…
I’m going to SEW! Like actually use my sewing machine.
used my Accuquilt GO to cut out Plaid Farmhouse Quilt back in the summer. This pattern is designed by Priscilla and
Chelsea of Stitching with the Housewives and published by It’s Sew Emma. (I promise I stitch and sew other designers!)
It was supposed to be a vacation project but you know how that goes.
even had a nice setup ONE day.
I only got as far as paper piecing some half-square triangles. So my goal for this weekend is to finish the quilt top and possibly piece the backing.
I also want to piece backings for two additional quilts. I’ve shared these before as they’ve been around a while.

I’ll come back Monday and share an update on my progress…wish me luck 😊
So, what are your plans this weekend? Anything you can tell? 😉
