Last Friday we had lunch at a favorite place and walked up to check out the bead shop and the quilt shop. Flyers for an art show and sale were posted, happening that day, so we walked down to check it out. Here is what followed me home. She had all sorts of these and at ten dollars I thought they were priced right for my budget! (artist is Robin Olsen)The fabric is going into the build a house block basket-which I am finally going to play in tomorrow. Bonus day off, time to dive into the new project I have been thinking about for ages. Here is also a photo of the finished quilt(for the Christmas mom and dad) on our bed - king size in the end.
I kept calling it queen size...but as you can see...it fits a king size bed well. I took the pillows off so as much of the quilt as possible is showing. It was picked up and will be delivered to the family at the appointed Christmas time. Photos should be clickable for enlarging.
I have all my Christmas gifts accounted for and just need to poke away at the wrapping part. Last year I made many Christmas themed gift bags and I plan on making several more. They were a big hit! I quilted two more charity quilts on Sunday and that leaves two remaining. I cut binding for all four of the builder bob quilts. Once these are all finished I will be happy to mail them off to headquarters and take a break. It's crazy busy at work right now- as far as I am concerned a good thing! who wants to sit around twiddling their thumbs, good to have plenty to do I say and should stay humming right along for a few weeks.
Life is Good:
I continue to have a job I love
I have lots of fabric to play with
I have wonderful kind friends
I have joy in my heart!
