I had trouble focusing this weekend, at least in the studio. I did work outside most of the weekend, raking leaves, uncovering plants, trimming bushes and mulching beds. It's a bunch of work doing all the townhomes (6 of them), but no one else takes care of the yard, so I do it. I will say it looks great.
A couple of geese were added to my flock. At this rate I'll finish sometime in 2011.
I added a pink panel for this quilt. Maybe I'll try to finish more of these today.
I sorted and bundled my scrap packs for Penny's 'Scraps to Treasure' swap. Nine of us are swapping scraps and we have to use them ALL in a project by next October. Doesn't that sound like fun! I got them all ready to go, and no envelopes to be had.
Aren't these cute? These were all in a pretty bundle when Kate gave them to me. (I had to unroll them to fit them in my little bag...I travel light!) Kate, of Kate Kwiltz, and I got together when I was in Chicago last week. She met me downtown and we stopped and got cupcakes at Sugar Bliss (to die for!) and had a lovely lunch and conversation. I felt like we were old friends. We talked about everything and shared our love of quilting and fabric. Kate brought her batik quilt to show me. Oh my goodness, it was gorgeous. The picture on her blog doesn't come close to showing the beauty of this quilt. Kate has gone out of her way to help me and my hubby. She's shared her knowledge of the city that has helped my hubby so much. He eats better because of Kate. She's also helped us get to know places to go and enjoy the city together. I can't thank her enough. It was great, Kate, let's be sure to do it again!
I'm hoping to find my focus and finish some things this week. Wish me luck!
