Catching up

Morning peeps! How was your weekend? It was an all sewing weekend for me for the most part. Downside, it's stuff I can't show. Alex is working on a project for the magazine and I was doing some blanket stitching for her. I love blanket stitching and it was a perfect project for sewing group because you don't really need to think about it.
Debbie, as usual, had a wonderful lunch for us. First off I have to show you this package of Artisan Lettuce. SO COOL. And so fresh and delicious.

Debbie not only made a wonderful lunch of salad and salmon, she had the big finish of the day!

It was great sewing with Debbie and Deb and I'm lucky to be included in the group.
So what did you do this weekend?

It was a great weekend sewing with you and Deb. I can't wait for the next sew day. You didn't mention that your Pina Colada dip was a hit too! How many angel food cakes did we go through eating it??? So much for staying healthy..LOL.

I finished some swap blocks and did some knitting while watching the oscars last night. And i'm working on a oile of pillowcases for the One Millions pillowcase challenge. Our LQS hopes to have 1000 by end of the year, my personal goal is 50... that would bust some stash!

I got some of that lettuce at Costco. It is delicious (weeell, delicious for lettuce, tender and pretty. I'm working on stuff I can't really show, too. You know, Market is coming. Even though I won't be there, I'll "be" there.

Oooh, pretty lettuce! Pretty quilt!

I sewed and SEWED. Quilt retreat started at 8 a.m. SHARP on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and went all day and into the night. I never sleep (at night) so I figured I would be one of the handful that sewed until the wee hours. Instead I started nodding off at 8:30 Friday night and was asleep by 9:00. That sewing and talking is TIRING.

I had my copy of The Magazine, only one other person had seen it, and they all loved it. I MAY have pointed out the photo of my Very Famous Quilting Friends.

I won a door prize, too! 9 block-of-the-month American Jane patterns and fabrics for a darling Playtime Quilt designed by Sandy Klop. I guess it's time for me to learn to applique.

I was working on a free-pieced quilt using Wendy Slotbloom's OH-SO-ADORABLE Frolic fabric. I'm fussy-cutting all the cute little racoons and birds and squirrels, and then making (sort of) square-in-square blocks, using 20 shades of green and 20 shades of orange to frame the critters. Very wonky and no rhyme or reason. On a kind of sad note, I was the only one out of 50 who was making something without a pattern (mostly elaborate ones) and everybody who stopped by to see what I was making mumbled something about how cute the animals were, but it seemed like they thought my squares were wack. Oh sigh.
