Do You Have Friggatriskaidekaphobia?

An irrational fear of Friday the 13th? That's the Urban Dictionary definition, I'm not hating on anyone's phobias. I'm not a super superstitious person but I have plenty of other issues! ; ) Anyway, what a fun word. Try to say it out loud and use it in a sentence today. Ha!

I added three black beads to this little mini quilt. I still need a label. I need to make labels today. Make me.

Work was so busy this week, but I managed to find a little time to reward myself with sewing projects. This gathered clutch was fun and gave me more much-needed zipper practice.

Love this lunch bag. I've had the red and white gingham oil cloth for a while and was looking for a fun project. Sewing with oil cloth is very interesting. Luckily, most of the sewing was done on the wrong side. I think you need a special Teflon foot to sew on the oil side. The pattern called to top stitch the upper edge, but I don't think my machine will do it.

Wonky houses for a block swap. I have a wonky house block collection from other quilters growing. I'm hoping to put them all together for a charity quilt. These three I'll send to my swap partners.

I stashed all my UFO's away when I cleaned my studio a couple of weeks ago. Not a good idea! Out of sight, out of mind! I plan to get that basket out this weekend and continue work on a few of those UFO's. These two asterisk blocks are a start. One of my quilt friends sent me more selvages, so I had to make a selvage asterisk.

I made this mini quilt for the friend who sends me selvages. I can't believe I haven't made her one of my floppy selvage bookmarks to say thanks. I usually whip up one of those to say thanks. She included a note in the bag that said "what do you do with these things?" I guess selvage quilting is relatively new. And just a little crazy.

Off to make the boy some blueberry pancakes. The fruits and veggies are still wonderful this summer. I've been a cooking fool. I'm even growing my own basil and dill. Barely, but I'm doing it. Looking forward to a fun weekend. I hope you have a great one.
