Sew Cute Tuesday

This past week has been a doozy! William had a doctors appointment on Tuesday, and he was not very happy he had to get a shot, and then I had a doctors appointment on Thursday. Little baby is doing everything he 's supposed to, head down, constantly kicking me in the ribs ;)

Since I had so many mommy duties this past week, not much sewing happened. I worked ahead on my #100days100blocks so each day I've just been posting the block picture on each corresponding day. I have been working on a new cross stitch project in the evenings when I go to bed. I love having cross stitch to work on before bed, because it relaxes me more than reading a book. This is the Trick-or-Treat Costume Club by The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. 

That is what I've been working on, now lets see some of the pretty things that were shared last week! 

Kathi of Run 'N Stitch is working on these beautiful applique blocks for a Christmas quilt! The cardinal block is my favorite :D 

Bernie of Needle & Foot created this wonderful 241 Tote by Noodlehead.

Last but not least, Teje of Nero's Post III shared a fantastic tutorial on how she creates her patchwork pieces. 

Now it is time to link up your finishes or works in progress from the previous week. You can link up directly from instagram as well - and be sure to tag #SewCuteTuesday and @youngtexanmama on IG so we can see what you're working on!

I want to start off by thanking everyone for joining me last week for the first Sew Cute Tuesday here on my blog :D you guys really know how to make a girl feel loved!

Recently I have been working full steam ahead on my #100day100blocks using the Tula Pink City Sampler book and my Lizzy House stash. The sew along is being hosted by Angie at Gnome Angel, and you can get all of the details on her blog.

Have you joined the fun? I am loving seeing everyone's different versions of the same blocks!

100 Days 100 Blocks Sew Along

I am very excited about joining Angie of Gnome Angel for the #100Days100Blocks sew along happening on Instagram! For the sew along, we'll be making the quilt from Tula Pink' s City Sampler book. There are 100 blocks in the book, thus the hashtag #100days100blocks. Today is the official kickoff, so if you want to join the fun, be sure to stop by Angie's blog to get all of the details on how to sew along.

This is my first block for the sew along. I've decided to use my stash of Lizzy House fabrics to bring them to life! My goal is to keep the blocks as close as possible to the color of the blocks in the book. It's going to be interesting because Tula Pink and Lizzy House don't have many of the same color schemes in their collections, but thankfully Lizzy has the Pearl Bracelets basics that fill in most of the gaps.
Block 1 for #100days100blocks.

Block number 2 cut and ready to stitch. This one was fun to pull fabrics for, you can see that I got pretty close to the picture in the book.
Ready for #100days100blocks!

Block 1 in the bottom corner, blocks 2 & 3 are cut, and I've pulled fabric for blocks 4-15! Did I mention I am excited about this sew along? ;) I'm going to try and get as far ahead as possible since baby #2 is due to arrive smack dab in the middle of the sew along.
Ready for #100days100blocks!

Starting this sew-along has added another project to my ever growing WIP list but I love the ability to switch between projects. It's helps keep my sewjo active because if I get bored with one project, I can easily switch to another one.

Do you like to work on multiple projects at a time, or do you stick to just one until it's done?
