Bow ties and watches

 It has been a long day and I am sooooo ready for bed!  Still no water and my iron died a few minutes ago!  LOL!  I'll just quit for the day and go to bed!  Richard is working tonight, Andrew worked today but is not upstairs playing guitar and my little Hunter is asleep in the recliner.  Still no school for tomorrow so he has had an extra week off school due to the weather.  

Last night I got a little bored and started counting out my bow ties in sets of 9 and sewing the 300 that I had finished into 9 patches.  That way it will go together a little faster as I get the other million bow ties finished.  :)  I have 1/4 of the blocks pieced for the quilt. 
 Here are a few of the 9 patch bow ties sewn together.  I have a bunch more to sew but since my iron died I decided to just stop for the night. 
 Here are a few more that I ended up making as leaders/enders while piecing the 9 patch bow ties. 
 One good thing for the day....look what arrived in the mail today.  :)  A wonderful little gift that is sooooo me!  :)  Richard laughed and said that maybe now I could keep up with how much time I was spending in the sewing room.  :)  I love it! 
 I'm off to bed now, for some much needed rest!

My husband bought me a very similar necklace, except that mine is bronze. Unfortunately I broke it. :(

Rotten luck, Kristie. Hope things can get fixed soon.
Your bow ties are looking wonderful!
What a sweet little necklace.

Oh no! I hope everything is back and working for you today. Love your bow ties - smart to put them together in sets of 9.
