Well, that took ten minutes! I love making these blocks. Nancy, I'll try to make a couple of more of them for you next week. Meanwhile, I'll get these mailed off to you tomorrow.
Today was a lazy day, but I managed to accomplish quite a bit. I pieced the backing for the shop sampler first thing this morning. I told them I would stash bust for the backing rather than pull fabric off a bolt at the shop. I didn't quite have enough of the one I pulled, so I pieced vertical strips of the leftover fabrics from the front onto the back. It worked! Stash depletion - 3 yards!
I delivered the quilt to Ginger's, and did a bit of looking around while I was there. There was a sale going on, so I picked up a little more white-on-white to enlage the red and white shooting stars quilt top I'm working on. I've decided not to make any more of those mid-sized quilts. I want everything to fit on my bed. Well, there are the appliqued projects that most likely will get hung on the wall, but lap/twin quilts are a no-no from now on!
I got the two file boxes out of the trunk of my car and spread them out on the living room floor in front of the fireplace. I said I would give it four hours, but finished the whole project in 2.5 hours. That will save me a whole day at work. I am interrupted so much that it's hard to string together that much time there.
My quilter neighbor and her mother dropped over for a visit. Thank goodness I had just picked up all the work stuff from the middle of the floor. We had a nice visit. I haven't seen them in a while.
I need to hang up some sweaters out of the washer, and then I think I'm going to hit the hay. I had a real productive weekend, and that feels wonderful! But another long week begins tomorrow so I'd best get my 'beauty' rest!
~ A weekend with a purpose, goals met and fully enjoyed.
~ A happy Daisy who got some people food tonight.
~ Full strip bins that are just itching to get used up!
