Friday Finishes and Project Progress

It's been a busy week, I kind of took a blogging break and have been concentrating on getting some work done in my sewing room.  I've made steady progress on my deadlines and feel good that I'll have things done when they need to be finished.  Here is a picture of our big finish for the week:

Yes - we got the last bit of the laminate laid in the dining room!  I am so delighted with how it looks - now we just have to decide on how we want to do the baseboards.  I'm leaning toward staining them to match the wood, but painting isn't off the table yet.  I thinking a sage green for the walls would be a nice change from the yellow (which isn't as bright as it looks here).  Deciding on paint is harder than choosing fabric for a quilt for me.  Paint seems much more permanent.

The lap quilt using the rest of my Whimsical and Wonky blocks is put together and basted for quilting!

I've got more than half of my black and white blocks done for the Black and White Blog Hop coming up shortly! 

I finally hand stitched the label on my Sew Many Colors mini quilt - I'm adding sleeves and labels to all the mini quilts I have displayed in my sewing room.

And have a big pile of blocks from the French Blue line to sew together for the Island Batik Getaway Blog hop.

It's been a productive week!  Tomorrow I plan on working on my idea for the Project Quilting Challenge.  I didn't want to leave it until Saturday this week, but that's how it worked out.  I am looking forward to some fun sewing, though, so I will just enjoy the process and not think about it being last minute (as usual!).

Linking up with Busy Hands Quilts for Finished or Not Friday

There’s an app for that! I can’t remember where but you can take a picture of your room and put the paint on the wall. I had to go look it up is one of them! You had a great week!
