Mother's Day and ME days!

Belle&flowers from my daughter
 Happy Mother's day to all moms today! What makes this day extra special is it is a sewing day for me with a friend. DH has been away for a "boys" weekend so it became a "ME" weekend for yours truly.
I have a few challenges that are due in a month at two guilds. I really need to get working on them. So yesterday was orphan block day. I received an otphan block from a guild member and I have to make something with it and return it to that member.  I have decided to make a large quilt carrying bag or tote bag. Yesterday was designing and getting things to fit together. No scraps were harmed in the creating process....but chosen with care.(can't you tell by the mess left behind)
Today I will be quilting it and preparing to assemble it.
As many guilds are doing, the other challenge is for Canada's 150 birthday. I have used blocks from a recent workshop and incorporated them into a wallhanging for this challenge.
I am keeping things under wraps for now but will show pics later on.(two of them are in the picture if you really look)
Digging in the scrap bags
Yesterday I had a friend join me in my sewing room. Bernadette and I probably did more talking than sewing but some sewing was accomplished. She was working on her challenge too. She is returning today for more sewing. We were so busy sewing, I forgot to take any photos.
Enjoy your day with family and if you have time join me in checking out what others are doing today with slow stitching Sunday at Kathy's blog.
