Weekend Warrior (Thank you, Veterans!)
This past weekend was packed...too much for one blog...or I would be writing for hours and there wouldn't be any quilting going on, lol. I finished my November UFO, WIP, PIGs project. A kit I purchased from the Dorr Mill Store called Frosty Mugs. Due to poor planning on my part that worked out ok...I didn't lay the project out well and ran out of space at the top...so my bird's legs had to be left off and she had to nest right on the snowball. But, you know what...I like it better!
I found this old iron board at a local antique store and decided it would be perfect to hang quilts. The other adjustment I made to Frosty Mugs is...I couldn't use the big piece of red wool for the backing...such a waste in my wool hoarding mind. So I bought a piece of Wooley Flannel, backed it on one piece and envelope sewed a second piece which meant I could skip the binding step :).
Saturday was the PJ Sale at the The Stitchin' Post. Discounts started out at 30% + 5% added if you wore you PJ's...read all about it on Humble Quilts...and on her post you will see me in my PJ's, lol. Some people showed up in their regular clothes which begs to consider that...they don't own any PJ's!
A handful of girlfriends stopped by for coffee and scones before jumping into the shopping. Here are a couple of Fabric Stalkers with their Addie Turbo bills!
After shopping...(and yes, I did find something I absolutely needed. 3 pieces of mouth watering wool, some needles and then there was Twigs which I HAD to purchase some candles.) Robin and I took the dogs for a walk (they ran) in the woods...they whined all the way there...Are we there yet?
Today I stitch with the Material Girls...I have so missed them as my schedule has kept me away from this wonderful Monday group. I can't wait to see what they have been up too. I have been secretly working on my Dresden Plate Challenge which is the 2014 group challenge for the MG's...to be revealed in April of 2014!
Thank you Veterans for your sacrifice and all you have contributed to our peace of mind!
