Sew & Tell is our weekly sharing thread. Tell us what you've finished, what you're working on- we'll cheer you on!
I had to change the date- first I put that it was 4-3-13! Who can believer it's May, and that our Midwestern friends are having such ridiculous weather! Last weekend I made a bunch of burp diapers, and mailed some to my DD in Seattle. My girlfriend came over and put a quilt up on the HQ, so I helped her with the setup.
I am working on breast pads for DGD and a DN. have 20 so far. going to try diaper covers. has any one made diaper covers using PLU I am not sure what that is but when I go to Joanns maybe they have it. i have made burp pads and receiving blankets. Life is all about baby now. with two comming in the fall Yes they are both due the same time. I need to get a stock built up. they will find out next month girl- boy. then I can really get busy.
Last year I decided to uncover the sewing machine and make something. When I saw Sarah Vedeler's BOM for The Quilt Show I fell in love with it! So I bought a kit, decided in November that it was big enough, and have finally finished quilting it (I think). Anyway the binding is on, and my error in one of the big corners (bias stretched) doesn't show when it's lying on the bed so I can live with it!

Sewing outdoor curtains out of screening material, additional curtain for sailcloth extension, placemats for summer dining using the homedecor samples on sale at Joanne's. So glad this fabric shop is connected with HGTV! Finishing up a baby quilt for a friend's newest granddaughter.
Bozie, you did another beautiful wall hanging. Love it. Cuilteanna- beautiful quilt- I know the effort it takes to make complexed quilts. You did a great job. Glassnquilts- your baby quilt turned out great- great colors I completed my Patriotic Challenge, but will show it in the end of May. Still working on my Crimson Roses king size quilt. Lots of bias edeges and multi y seams. Just added my first two borders. Plenty of work left to do. LOL SueThis message has been edited. Last edited by: sister sue,

Not getting much done but sure am enjoying having my son home! I did finish the quilting on this one and have it hanging in my den. It's nice to have a nice tall 6'4" son to help get it up there. Started to hang it in my bedroom but figured it might keep us awake. I have a soft blue and yellow quilt on the wall and a white one on the bed.
So enjoy looking & reading about everyone's projects. I finally finished my May block, for the wall hanging, last night. I know it is about a week late. Seems like the faster I go the behinder I get! My delima is do I start on the one for June or do I put it off and do July and go back to June later. Decisions Decisions!

When you breast feed a baby it's very handy to wear a pad to stop leaking all over your clothes. I taught school for 6 months while breast feeding. Any sound that was similar to a crying baby had milk spurting out of me. It's hard to leave 30 students alone while you pump!
Breast pads - I knew exactly what she was talking about! You can purchase commercial pads, but I found that they stuck to skin - OUCH! I used folded 100% cotton men's handkerchiefs. Sometimes 2 or 3 folded together.
