Ever have one of those weekends that was so nice, it makes Monday extra painful? Or maybe that's every Monday? Either way, it was a good weekend. I did a little sewing, a little shopping, and a lot of hanging out with my boys.
First, I finished up the top for the Made in Cherry quilt. At 80" square, thing is huge! This was the best picture I could get. Maybe when it's quilted I can get some good pics, although how/if I'm going to quilt it myself is another problem.
My husband earned some major brownie points on Saturday. We went to a nearby fiber arts quilt show/vendor event. Not a lot of stuff that was my style (which the pocketbook appreciated), but I loved seeing the variety of vendors and quilting styles. The next place was closer to home and a lot more dangerous to the bank account: Karen Gray Designs. She was having another one of her famous sales. I only left with a couple of bundles and could have definitely gotten more!
From Karen Gray: a 1/2 yard bundle of Nicey Jane, and a quilt kit of Anna Maria Horner. I never buy kits, but this one was such a steal and very pretty.
From the quilt show: some yardage of Fandango and Michael Miller, a triangle ruler, Machingers gloves, and a really cute growth chart for E.
I did also manage to get some nice sewing time - during the daytime, what a luxury! - thanks to my son's 3 hour nap on Sunday. Woot!
I've been wanting to practice making clothes, and I picked up this dinosaur print several months ago with that in mind. E even picked it out. The pattern is the Easy Linen Shirt from Sewing for Boys. It's a little crazy, but he loves it. The hubs and I decided that if we take him anywhere scientific, like a museum, he has the perfect shirt to wear!
Now back to the usual manic Monday!
