Vacation has officially begun! I spent most of Saturday helping Margene get ready for her birthday party (her 50th!!) and Sunday hanging around her place, helping clean up a bit. Not a bad way to spend a weekend, but I neglected a lot of my chores, I'm afraid. I did get the laundry done (except for the last load of towels waiting to be folded, but they don't count!)
I also got all of the 'quilt stuff' that I have all cut out. I got the next month of the Sampler quilt at quilt club on Saturday, the monthly shipment for the Ooh Rah! quilt a couple of weeks ago, and....a quilt kit that I ordered came in. They are all cut out! The Sampler quilt won't take much to put together - just 4 blocks, I have one block of the Ooh Rah! quilt done, but the second block uses a technique I hadn't tried before - inset seams. I made a sample up, just so I wouldn't ruin my 'good fabric' and I think I am now ready to tackle the block.
The quilt kit that I'm now working on is the Friendship Roses Quilt - in blues and yellows. I really like fabrics used. It doesn't seem to be very complicated to put together, either (lucky for me!) Here's a photo of it:
And the link to the quilt pattern is here.
Since I'm on vacation, I, of course, have a long list of things I want to do/get done this week. I think the list is longer than the time that I have though. It usually is, but....I should get a few things crossed off.
