TGIFF Finally

Its gearing up to be a great weekend.  I woke up this morning with the kids at home and realized I have a pile/list of things that needed sewn and got right to it, in my dreams.  First came breakfast for everyone then I popped in a movie for the kiddies and got an hour and a half of sewing in but then came 5 hours of running errands. 

I did however get very caught up on my mini summer sampler.  I finished the three blocks from this week.

And here's all of them together so far
Very cute stuff!!!
I also got to catch up on the last two missing blocks of the Virtual Quilting Bee blocks.

My question to everyone is if you're doing two of the same thing, whether it be a quilting block or a clothing pattern, and its something you've never done before, should you take it one at a time or should you just knock them both out at the same time?  For me I always try to do both at the same time and I honestly don't know if that's saving my anytime.  I feel like if I just did the first one and worked out all the kinks the second one should be a breeze.
I've also decided to enter in to the Modern Mini Quilt Challenge this year and here's the fabric I've choosen to try a new technique out on. 
And last but not least it is Memorial Day Weekend so there are lots of fabric sales going on and I just couldn't resist the one that's going on over at Westwood Acres.  I'll be in the car for 5 and half hours tomorrow so hopefully maybe I'll get some embroidery and hexis going.  Hope everyone has a good long weekend and I leave you with this awesome video.  Enjoy!!!

I'm linking up at my usual places.  Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF!!!
