ah-ha! I do have lurkers :) Ya know I just wanted to see who would come out of the wood work with my last post :)
So, the shop has received lots of new items over the past week and on Friday, we got 2 new books in and a new color rotary mat...of course, I had to get them all:
Then, a dear friend took me out for my birthday dinner (yes, it's a month ago, but we couldn't get our schedules to work right) and I have never eaten at one before and oh my gosh......I recommend it to everyone...I over ate, a weeee bit :) look at this YUMMY shot of a dessert from Carrabba's Friday night.
Next, I spent lots of sewing time with Cheryl this weekend and we had a wonderful time, though I don't feel like I was as productive as I wanted to be.
You must see her new iron though....I was humored by it:
Yep, exactly like mine (she likes mine a lot) but it's blue!! How cool is that! Now if they made them in Purple, I would have an extra iron :)
So, I sewed several items that were for obligated swaps and am all caught up (except some pieces that require hand work) until July now and feeling like I didn't accomplish a project for me, I did a quickie table runner based off one of the patterns in "Let's Do Lunch". I think I'm going to add a small dark blue border around it though, it's just too busy.
I also got more done on some the Pink and Green monster, though I think it's going to be a challenge to finish this project--hopefully I'll get it done in time for my daughter's birthday in August.
I'm about to go and pick up my 2 quilts I just gave to the quilter a few weeks ago...OMgosh!! I'm giving her my Gum Drops and Field of Sunflowers for the next round. I barely had enough batting and had to piece together some to fit.
I'll of course share pictures of the completed ones this afternoon!
Off I go!
