I was actually quite impressed he has payed enough attention to know what a stash of fabric is.
My response...Yay! You cleaned your office! I'm not sure what part of block of the month he doesn't understand. I can only sew what they release. I'm ignoring the fact I've had his fabric for about four years.
But speaking of blocks of the month, August is almost here and that means the new blocks in some of the quilt a longs I'm participating in shall be released. So I better get my butt in gear and get Jungle Gym finished in the next few days. Currently, it is ditch stitched and waiting for the fun to begin.
I did manage to get my bobbin wound and in no time completed my first whole cloth block. All that is really left to do is to soak and block it and get ready for block number two. Block number two is scaring me quite a bit. This time the feathers will be arranged on the outside and inside of a heart. If you remember a few weeks ago I attempted feathers in a wreath and it didn't go quite so well. Ren, the lady hosting the quilt along on facebook, did provide a template to practice on and I decided to take advantage of it and take a 10 minuet break at work yesterday.
Not too shabby, so I'm feeling pretty good about it. Not sure if it will make it to the table this weekend, but its day will come soon enough.
I also got a surprise yesterday at work. My friend Lori (my partner in photography crime) stopped by to give me this.
She figured if they won't let me drink at work, maybe I could eat it on toast for breakfast to start my day out right. So a big thanks to her for thinking of me on her trip to the local farmers market.
Now I'm off to start quilting my next mini and daydream about all the blocks I will hopefully be making this weekend. Before I can start sewing for the weekend I must make it through my daughter's first field show tomorrow night for band. My only baby is growing up on me and turning into a wonderful young lady. Watching her take all these first steps is so bittersweet. I refuse to be the fool at the football field crying...but I'll sneak a few tissues just in case.
Hopefully, you have big plans for the weekend. If you do I'd love to hear what they are. Or advice on how not to be the blubbering fool at the football game.
