This Weekend

This weekend I got a lot of stuff accomplished. The biggest accomplishment was doing all of my 3x6 Bee blocks.

I am really happy with how the turned out. I had an assembly line thing going on so it probably took me about 6 hours from cutting to finishing all of them.

I also finished my We Bee Modern Too Block for March. Doing things early this month!

This block probably took 15 minutes from cutting to finish. One of the easiest blocks ever. It's Boxed In from the Modern Blocks book.

I also baked some this weekend. I made Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies. Mmmmm....

Mike, the boyfriend, also sewed this weekend. I have been churning out Danni's Box Pouches in the last week. They are so useful and cute!! I had originally made one for Mike but it was too small for what he needed it for so we took another trip to JoAnn's and he picked out some more fabric and suggested that he try to make it himself this time.

This is a pretty easy pattern so I was all for it. He did so well. I cut the pieces, he put it all together, EVEN QUILTED IT! I helped a little bit with the zipper, but other than that he did it all by himself.. :)
